Jan Marini’s Skincare Lines
Age Invention Line
Age Invention Line is a breakthrough of the age-technology. A product line specifically designed for women. It focuses on the hormone levels and changes in the skin caused by long-time sun exposure. When a woman age, the estrogen levels decrease and the sebaceous glands produce less oil, causing skin dryness. As we age, the rate of skin growth slows. The top layer of the skin (the epidermis) thins yet the layer of dead cells on the surface (stratum corneum) becomes more adhesive, slowing the natural exfoliation process and creating a build-up of rough dead cells. The reduced moisture level in the skin accelerates the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Bioglycolic Line combines glycolic acid with other proven technological advancements. Jan Marini has created bioglycolic products with ultimate resurfacing ingredients combined with scientific components, creating a unique skincare line. Glycolic acid (or hydroxyacetic acid) is an alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA). AHA can be produced either synthetic or naturally. The glycolic acid that is used in skincare is derived from sugar cane, and is the smallest AHA. It has the capability to penetrate deep into the skin, and dissolve the binding properties of the lipids that keep skin cells together, which can cause acne. Glycolic acid resurfaces the skin’s texture and improves the appearance of acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. Studies have shown that it’s also a potent antioxidant that helps fight free radicals.
C-ESTA products are a revolutionary concept in anti-aging with a patented combination of Vitamin C and DMAE. All C-ESTA products contain the first topical form of lipid-soluble Vitamin C and DMAE, a potent anti-oxidant, cellular mediator and product penetration enhancer. Vitamin C plays an important roll of the skin’s functions, e.g. growth and repairing of the connecting tissue, protection against free radicals, collagen synthesis and prevention of early ageing. The technology in C-ESTA is non-irritating, usable on sensitive skin, has a long and stable shelf-life and provides superior Vitamin C absorption into the skin.
The Transformation Line features a remarkable patented combination of cytokine technology combining TGF Beta-1 (transforming growth factor) and Thymosin Beta-4. This patented combination maximizes healing and repair and is enhanced in the line with multiple targeted peptides and growth factors. The result is a truly transformational healing and restorative anti-aging product-line.
Cytokines, among other actions, act as intercellular mediators that signal certain cellular interplays necessary for repairing daily damage to the skin, and are integral to maintaining youthful-looking healthy skin. By augmenting our cellular repair functions, the Transformation line literally helps to rebuild damage to reduce or eliminate the appearance of aging and sun damaged skin. The patented combination of cytokines and targeted peptides and growth factors enable this product line to address multiple aspects of daily cellular repair and rejuvenation, making it a cornerstone for many anti-aging regimens.
Sun protection must be considered an essential element of every Skin Care Management System. For sunscreen to be truly efficient, it must contain a critical balance of agents that can adequately protect the skin from damaging UVB and UVA rays through the entire UV-spectrum. Protection can be greatly enhanced by the addition of topicals and antioxidants that further protect the skin's immune function, prevent damage to DNA and enhance photo-protection.
The Jan Marini Skin Research Antioxidant Line features state-of-the-art broad spectrum sun protection to cover both UVA and UVB rays. In addition, our unique sun protection formulas combine cutting-edge microscopic sponge encapsulation technology, powerful antioxidant components and a superb hydrating complex for extraordinary skin protection and rejuvenation.
Proteolytic enzymes are the most scientifically sensible and effective method to accomplish supplemental exfoliation at home for smoother more radiant skin. These enzymes selectively digest dead or diseased protein material without harming living healthy cells. This means they can remove the build-up of dead cells on the surface of the skin leading to rough texture and flaking. The best part is because these enzymes selectively digest dead or diseased tissue, they can safely be used any time.
Clean Zyme and Skin Zyme offer incredible benefits when used together with the Skin Care Management System. The duo greatly accelerates and enhances other skin resurfacing agents. Users will see an immediate and continuing measurable improvement in skin texture, clarity and firmness.
These enzymes are particularly valuable for anyone who may experience temporary dryness or flaking following laser procedures, chemical peels, glycolic acid, Retin-A or other tretinoins or acne medication. Users will find that the annoyance of peeling flaking skin can virtually be eliminated.
Did you know that your hair ages both on your head and on your lashes? The average person regularly loses between 70 and 150 hairs from their scalp each day. As we age, hair growth rates decrease for both men and women. Some follicles stop producing new hairs altogether others produce hair that is more fragile, thinner in diameter. The result is thinner hair with wider part lines and short or disappearing eyebrows.
The Marini line of products delivers a solution for the appearance of thinning hair on the head, eyelashes and eyebrows.

Switching To New Skincare Products
Start by introducing one product at a time when switching to new skincare products. It takes approximately 2-8 weeks for the skin to acclimate to new products, and for you to see an improvement. Initially, you may experience worsening of the skin before it gets better; dryness, impurities and blemishes are common. This cleansing is normal and happens because the skin is wearing off the previous products. If you experience lasting discomfort, stop the treatment and contact a skin therapist.
