Cellex-C Complex is the original formulation that in the early 1990’s pioneered the present worldwide interest in the topical application of vitamin C. Originally launched in 1991, Cellex-C was the first topical ascorbic acid formulation to be successfully commercialized. The synergy of the original patented complex combined with proprietary technology invented by Cellex-C sets Cellex-C apart from all other vitamin C products and produces results that no other product can duplicate.
Cellex-C is based on the scientific findings of the Bioderm patent, co-invented by Dr. Lorraine Meisner. The patented complex was initially developed in the mid-1980’s as a result of clinical studies on wound healing and related connective tissue disease. A correlation was observed between a deficiency in L-ascorbic acid (a particular form of vitamin C), tyrosine plus zinc and intrinsically aged or photo-damaged skin.
The patented complex was then combined with a phyto-chemical composition to produce a delivery system that would facilitate the absorption of the nutrients into the skin. The visual results are compelling. Over the past 20 years we have witnessed the amazing long-term effects of the continued use of Cellex-C. Our photographic library shows the long term benefits and lack of the normal signs of visible aging on subjects who have used Cellex-C consistently between 10 and 20 years.

Clinical trial reveals dramatic improvement in skin firmness and tone after 3 months
The study was conducted to determine whether a daily application of topical Cellex-C will lead to an objective, as well as subjective, improvement in human facial photo-aging/photo-damage.
Moon Mapping Technology demonstrates the efficacy of Cellex-C
Optical profilometry was used in order to enable an objective evaluation of changes in facial topography as a result of using Cellex-C Serum for 3 months. This procedure entails use of a silicone rubber mold to obtain an exact impression of facial lines and irregularities.
The resulting imprint is then converted into a reverse image which depicts wrinkles as hills and smooth skin as valleys, permitting exact measurement of skin topography similar to that done to map the lunar landscape.
