    The Latest Cosmetic and Surgical Procedures Favored by Celebrities

    Dermatologic procedures for anti-aging and overall skin improvement are increasing constantly with the West Coast being a crucible for future innovations. We’ve invited one of the nation’s leading Dermatologists to bring us up-to-date on “in-demand procedures” requested by Celebrities, A-listers, Politicians and Housewives. In practice for 28 years in trend-setting Beverly Hills, Dr. Kaplan’s perspective provides insight into a wealth of information about all aspects Dermatology treatments, both invasive and non-invasive, which are currently in use and in development. This intelligence is especially important for anyone designing products for the future needs of the skin care or cosmetic customer. Dr. Kaplan will explain the harmony that needs to exist between “The Two P’s: Procedures and Products,” and how his concept of Skincare Lifestyle is important now and in the future.

Recent introductions of naturals include: Songyi Mushroom Extract, Pearl/Nacre Moisturizer, Licorice Glabridin, Kinetin (isolated from unripe corn seed and young coconut juice), Beta-Glucan (from Songyi mushroom), Beta-Sitosterol, and a natural, plant-based broad spectrum preservative, Campo Plantservative.

    Songyi Mushroom Extract, used worldwide for its skin whitening properties, is a unique bio-herbal extract consisting of amino acids, powerful antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins known for their synergistic effect against skin aging (SOD process). It lightens face and body skin without causing cell death of any pigment cells during the rejuvenation process. Uptake of Songyi Mushroom Extract Enzymes (E) helps maintain normal biological balance in the endocrine system, enhancing colorless melanin pigment to balance skin tone and remove blemish and acne spots and hyper-pigmentation.

    Campo also offers various classes of heat stable and chemical reaction-stable plant-extracted enzymes for cosmetics and topical OTC pharmaceuticals. Among the more than 1000 active ingredients from Campo’s catalogue are innovative natural ingredients derived from exotic plants from China, India, Australia and Tropical Forests including Fruits Enzymes, Coffee Oil, UVA&B (for sunscreen), Neem Oil, Plantservatives, Mushroom extracts, Natural Colors, Alpha-Lipoic Acid and DMAE.
