Reversa Antioxidant Booster Serum provides daily protection from environmental hazards like exposure to the sun, cigarette smoke, pollution and stress—all known to increase the production of free radicals responsible for the loss of skin elasticity, the formation of age spots, fine lines and wrinkles.
The serum contains a unique concentrate of active antioxidant ingredients that include:
Pure and natural Teavigo® green tea extract whose polyphenols (a chemical substance found in plants) reduce the appearance of redness caused by exposure to UV rays.
Vitamin E, a lipid-soluble antioxidant normally present in low concentrations on the skin’s surface, that helps protect cellular membranes.
β-Glucan, a polysaccharide (complex carbohydrate) isolated from the cell wall of baker’s yeast, stimulates the skin’s natural defense mechanisms.
Its delicate scent of citrus and green tea is derived from essential oils and other natural ingredients. Applied to the skin, this rejuvenating serum forms a protective barrier against environmental stress. It also produces a pleasant invigorating sensation while providing the following benefits:
- Protects skin from daily exposure to pollution and other harmful environmental irritants
- Stimulates the skin’s natural defence mechanisms
- Moisturizes and softens the skin
- Helps prevent the appearance of wrinkles
Reversa Anti-Wrinkle Cream SPF 30 is specially formulated to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging such as brown spots and dry skin, while offering broad spectrum protection against the sun’s harmful rays (UVA/UVB). It is the perfect all-in-one product for the daily urban activities of today’s active woman.
It contains 8% of a skin-penetrating alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) known as glycolic acid, which is scientifically proven to stimulate exfoliation and promote the renewal of skin cells. By increasing cell turnover, it allows healthier cells to rise to the surface of the skin more quickly, giving the skin a healthier, younger-looking appearance.
As for all other Reversa products with glycolic acid, the formula contains the patented Time-Release Glyco-Comfort SystemTMwhich allows its use by people with sensitive skin.
The sun filters in Reversa Anti-Wrinkle Cream SPF 30 are: the remarkable UVA filter named Avobenzone (also known as Parsol 1789), and the UVB filters Octinoxate, Oxybenzone and Octisalate.
Finally, various moisturizing ingredients and emollients, such asvitamin E and panthenol, increase the skin’s moisture level and help prevent dryness. Key features

Reversa now offers the Multi-Tasking Care with Teprenone(Renovage™), an innovative and high-performance ingredient developed through scientific research. Teprenone helps delay the appearance of marks of time on the skin and reduces the marks already present. It acts simultaneously on all signs of aging to visibly reduce their appearance.

Reversa Skin Smoothing Body Lotion is ideal for relieving rough, dry skin caused by winter heating or air conditioning. This highly effective moisturizing formula comes in a convenient pump and is particularly effective on hands, elbows, knees and feet, leaving your skin looking and feeling silky smooth.
It contains 10% glycolic acid, the highest concentration allowed without a prescription from a dermatologist. Glycolic acid is a skin-penetrating alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) scientifically proven to stimulate exfoliation and promote the renewal of skin cells. By increasing cell turnover, it allows healthier cells to rise to the surface of the skin more quickly, giving the skin a healthier, younger-looking appearance.
It also features the Time-Release Glyco-Comfort SystemTM that releases the skin rejuvenating formula over an extended period of time. Together with a special amino acid (Arginine) and the skin protectant Allantoin, it reduces the stinging sensation sometimes experienced by people with sensitive skin using glycolic acid for the first time.
Its moisturizing ingredients and emollients—vitamin E and panthenol (provitamin B5), glycerin and petrolatum—increase the skin’s moisture level and help prevent dryness.
