Welcome to our BIOCUTIS® line of healing natural skin care products
We would like to share with you the discovery of a natural immune serum that powers our topical skin care cream that takes away both damaged proteins in the skin and the small rough, scaly, crusty skin lesions and abnormal thick keratin deposits on the skin, known by the terms actinic keratosis and "solar or senil keratosis" or "actinic keratoses".
The natural immune serum also powers our non-prescription product for all types of dermatitis, even severe radio-dermatitis after cancer treatment with ionizing radiation: radiotherapy.
The actinic keratosis lesions are caused by mutations in cells that have been damaged by long term overexposure to solar radiation and free radicals.
The accumulation of dead and damaged proteins and abnormal keratin cannot only end up in basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma skin cancer or the more dangerous melanoma skin cancer, but also causes chronic inflammation with all its deleterious unhealthy effects.
Skin cancer begins in the cells that make up the outer layer (epidermis) of your skin. A type of skin cancer called basal cell carcinoma can occur in the basal cells, which are located at the base of the epidermis and make skin cells that continuously push older cells toward the surface. As new cells move upward, they become more-flattened squamous cells, where a skin cancer called squamous cell carcinoma can occur. Melanoma, another type of skin cancer, arises in the pigment cells (melanocytes), which are also located in the base of the epidermis among the basal cells.
Recent research is showing that inflammation, or as it is referenced nowadays: the process of "inflamm-aging", is not only the disorder at the base of acne & rosacea, dermatitis & eczema, and many other disorders affecting our skin but explains the now widely accepted phenomenon that aging is accompanied by a low-grade chronic, systemic up-regulation of the inflammatory response. And that the underlining inflammatory changes, not only affect the cells of our skin, but are also common to most age-associated diseases.
Sergio Giunta from The Clinical Laboratory & Molecular Diagnostics of the Geriatric Hospital in Ancona, Italy says
a review of the literature on Inflammaging suggests that, like acute inflammation is well known to be associated with the five cardinal features 1. rubor (redness), 2. tumor (swelling), 3. dolor (pain), 4. calor (warm), 5. functio lesa (loss of function), on the contrary, "inflamm-aging" is characterized by the complex set of five conditions which can be described as 1. low-grade, 2. controlled, 3. asymptomatic, 4. chronic, 5. systemic, inflammatory state.
Your health is dependent on your immune system and its ability to identify and repel your own damaged cells and 'foreign' invaders.
Our immune system ages with us and its inflamm-aging responses generate un-repaired cellular damage - the more damage, the earlier your quality of life will deteriorate as you age.
The cumulative effects of sun damaged skin, free radical oxidation, immoderate stress, heavy metal overload, and vitamin and mineral under nutrition wears us down, increasing our susceptibility to disease.
It is as if Mother Nature never anticipated that the immune system she designed for us would be so taxed; and now here she needs our help.
FORTUNATELY a creature that lives with its skin exposed to the sun and the elements in a way that is similar to how we expose our face and other parts of our body to solar radiation and the elements, and with skin similar to human skin, secretes an immune system support serum that acts at the site of skin injuries, insults, trauma, solar or free radical damage; and repairs and REGENERATES damaged skin cells and tissues.
It is the most surprising solution for the health of the skin, because it supports our skin in its role as an active organ in our defense and immunity, and it is also a very safe and effective topical solution for the skin concerns of people of all ages, skin types and skin conditions.
And with use over a period of 60 days it yields healthy skin that appears naturally luminous whatever its shade, from porcelain to richest ebony.

What Is Actinic Keratosis (Solar Keratosis)?
The word actinic comes for the Greek word “actis” and “actinos” which mean ray or radiant energy. The sun causes many different changes and damage in the skin, one of those is known as actinic keratosis or solar keratosis.
Keratosis is the build up of keratin on the skin and can be due to many causes; however, the most common cause is over- exposure of skin areas to the sun. And these areas usually become sore and inflamed.
What exactly is Actinic Keratosis?
It is a very common sun induced skin disorder characterized by dry scaly, rough textured areas that appear on the outer layer of the skin. A predisposition for solar keratosis is also a genetic disease. These patches of damaged skin or skin lesions are caused by the overexposure to the sun's harmful UVA and UVB rays.
The little lesions on the skin are characterized by a small raised crusty bump that range from the size of a pin head and can grow up to an inch or two. They are of a significant different skin color to the non-affected skin and range from being light and dark pink to red, light and dark brown or a combination of all of these.
The scaly bumps can become hornlike in shape and are most commonly recognized by touch rather than by sight. It is occasionally itchy as well as slightly tingly with a light stinging sensation. All these characteristics are heightened and become much more obvious after being exposed to the sun.
Actinic keratosis primarily appears on the areas that are most frequently in direct contact with the suns UV rays (synonyms of actinic keratosis). The main areas where it appears are on the face, ears, a bald scalp, neck, backs of the hands and arms and the lips. In some cases it has been known to appear on the buttocks and thighs.
Lesions on the lips are known as Actinic cheilitis (it is also the most aggressive form) characterized by a white scaling and thickening of the lips in affected areas.
On the head and neck the small lesions are usually flat, while on the arms and hands they are elevated. So if one stays away from the sun it is possible for the skin to heal itself gradually and get rid of the keratosis build up.
Anyone that has actinic keratosis has received serious skin damage caused by nothing less than the harsh UV rays of the sun, which obviously makes the sufferer more susceptible to other sun related skin diseases and can ultimately end up in skin cancer.
Who can get Actinic Keratosis (Actinic Keratoses)?
Sun damage is accumulated in the skin over a long period of time. Most of the damaging sun exposure that a human receives happens before reaching eighteen years of age. However it is a life time of sun exposure that causes sun related skin diseases and not that last tanning session or vacation at the seaside or that ski trip in the mountains.
With the constant thinning of the ozone layer the dangerous UV rays are in much more closer contact with the earth and this therefore includes all of us roaming around doing simply daily tasks.
Blonde-haired, blue-eyed, fair skinned people are at the highest risk of any skin damage. However red heads, and people with lighter colored eyes (gray, green and blue) are at greater risk too; this is because they have less protective pigmentation and are most affected by sunburn.
This does not mean that people that have darker skin, hair and eyes cannot develop keratosis; they most definitely can especially if they are exposed often enough to the sun without sufficient protection.
People who also suffer from any of the immunosuppressant such as chemotherapy, AIDS or organ transplantation are also at great risk of suffering actinic keratosis. What happens is that while the body is healthy the lesions are kept at bay; it as soon as the body becomes ill and weak, these keratosis` build ups can become malignant.
Another interesting fact is that Actinic Keratosis (AK) generally appears after the age of 40, since it takes a lot of accumulated sun damage. Although hit is not solely limited to adults; teens can also suffer from Actinic Keratosis, especially if they live in areas that receive high-intensity sunlight throughout the year.
While many early actinic keratosis lesions do regress or are destroyed by the immune response, or by applying our topical solution, many don't.
The thicker the AK and the longer it has been there, the greater the potential for it becoming a fully malignant lesion (e.g. squamous cell carcinoma) so the proper thing to do about them depends on how impressive the lesion is. Some are mild and some are thick, large and potentially very dangerous hypertrophic lesions that are difficult to distinguish from a squamous cell carcinoma clinically or even histologically.
AKs are not created equal, and there is no substitute for good clinical judgement in deciding which ones are dangerous, so if you have worries about yours consult a Doctors as soon as possible. The longer an AK hangs around, the more likely it is to do something nasty.
Beware of the warning signs of transformation of actinic keratosis to squamous cell carcinoma, i.e. thickening, soreness, crusting and bleeding.
Prevention and treatment of Actinic Keratosis - Solar Keratosis
- Generously apply a broad spectrum sun blocker (one that covers against both UVA and UVB rays) that has a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15 or more, daily. Remember to reapply after perspiring and after being submerged in water.
- Avoid deliberate tanning. Still while wearing sun blocker, sunbathing is not secure.
- Tanning beds and sunlamps are not safe choices because they also emit UV rays. So AVOID deliberate tanning.
- Remain out of the sun between 10 a .m. and 4 p.m. This moment is when the sun's rays are the strongest.
- Look for shade anytime possible. If you don't see your shadow or your shadow is shorter than you, it is crucial to seek cover.
- Put on protecting clothing when you are on the sun, items like long sleeved tops and long legged pants will protect your skin from. Be aware that the material is not a loose knitted fabric as the suns UV rays will penetrate through clothing.
- A wide-brimmed hat is a must to protect your face and neck from the harmful rays.
- Wear sunglasses that provide 100% UV protection and a wide brimmed hat to protect the eyes and sensitive skin on the face.
- The body needs to absorb vitamin D, however do this by simply following a healthy diet that includes vitamin supplements and avoid gaining the vital vitamin directly from the sun.
- Be extra careful when near water, snow and sand; the reflection of the UV rays is just as dangerous and damaging as the direct contact to the rays.
Look after you outer self!
ACTINIC KERATOSIS IS AN EARLY SIGN OF SKIN CANCER… read the signals carefully and get treatment before it's too late.
Actinic keratosis is not easily cured but it is easily controlled and over time with proper care and attention paid to the affected skin, the problem will slowly disappear. The first step in medical care is usually based on educating the person on the dangers of the suns rays as well as teaching the patient how to limit sun exposure and the progress that this will have on the healing process.
Skin cancer is the most common of all cancers, afflicting more than two million Americans each year, a number that is rising rapidly. It is also the easiest to cure, if diagnosed and treated early: read more
Unfortunately it is impossible to tell before hand which of the lesions on the skin could possible become cancerous, so the right type of treatment is usually discussed with the medical practitioner.
- Chemical peeling involves the application of various chemical solutions, to the affected areas of the skin, which cause the skin to blister and eventually peel away the affected areas. This allows for new skin to form in the epidermis and cell regeneration takes place.
- Scraping or Curettage is the process whereby a surgeon uses an apparatus to scrape off the area of the skin that is affected. Sometimes this process is succeeded by electrosurgery (an electric current destroys the affected tissue)
- Cryotherapy… also known as freezing is the treatment whereby a cold substance like liquid nitrogen is applied to the areas of the skin that are affected by actinic keratosis. The liquid nitrogen burns off the lesion by freezing it off the skins surface. The cold burnt skin eventually falls off and new skin is able to grow and take its place. It is the most common treatment and takes few minutes to complete.
- Photodynamic therapy involves an agent applied to the skin that makes the skin sensitive to light (usually applied by injection or topically). An intense light is then point in the area and the laser light destroys the damaged skin cells.
- Retinoids is an oral drug (isotretinoin) is very effective in treating actinic keratosis. However it is only recommended in high risk cases because it has significantly high risk side effects.
- Creams and Ointments destroy actinic keratosis cells by blocking essential reactions within them. Creams can be used as an actinic keratosis natural therapy for they support the skin's immune system and stimulate the body's own natural rejection of these precancerous cells.
BIOSKINCARE CREAM for Actinic Keratosis Treatment
BIOSKINCARE CREAM is based on a biological ingredient, a natural skin regeneration and immune serum with cell-communicating ingredients; enzymes that "dissolve" or "digest" damaged cells and abnormal keratin deposits; activators of skin regeneration that act as growth factors stimulating the fibroblasts to generate new cells and the components of the extracellular skin matrix, and antimicrobial peptides.
The biological serum is a secretion collected from live snails of the species Helix Aspersa Müller. The very same this snail generates in its immune cells and secretes onto its skin to quickly regenerate its own shell and skin when damaged.
This mollusk does not have an adaptive immune system however its innate defense system is stronger as well as faster that the innate defense system of humans, which in both is designed to respond at the site of a local injury to defend the organism from pathogens or abnormal events and to reestablish the health of the whole body.
The serum is secreted to coat and heal cuts and abrasions, defend the skin from damaging solar radiation and free radicals, repair damage to the DNA, and maintain skin moisturized.
It has a fundamental function in the orchestration of an organized and scar-less regrowth of skin tissues ruined by injuries or insults, and also the regeneration of wounded tissues that result from accidents or by the action of predators.
The anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial peptides from the serum of land snails have been known for years and scientists have focused on replicating them (by biosynthesis) in the laboratory. This is a venue that may yield drugs after long years of clinical testing but requires the allocation of huge sums and that is not going to happen because the secretion cannot be patented because it is a naturally occurring substance.
Fortunately the snail serum as it is naturally can perform for human skin what it does for the snails themselves: quickly repair skin damage and fight invading micro-organisms.
We have dedicated research and care into creating a product that incorporates the immune serum into a cream that can when applied to the skin daily it goes into the dermis and heals sun damaged skin and skin lesions, and has excellent preventative properties.
It is is also safer, better for you and easier for your body than any clever formulation designed by a pharmacist, and it can also be used in conjunction with prescription and over the counter medical actinic keratosis treatments.
BIOSKINCARE CREAM is also highly effective to use in conjunction with the topical, oral and surgical treatments dermatologists and medical professionals prescribe. It will complement the healing process of the initial treatments and in its own way heal the skin leaving you with a beautiful complexion.
BIOSKINCARE CREAM - How it helps:
- Softens the tissues - the cellular membrane - of abnormal skin cells, such as are found in lesions, strange moles, and sores that don't heal, and then your body's natural immune system, comprised of white blood cells, lymphocytes, T-cells and macrophages, is free to attack as it would any foreign invader or suspicious cells.
- Supplies the necessary amino acids that are the building blocks of all proteins, especially copper peptides which are abundantly found in the snail secretions. These proteins and peptides have antimicrobial properties that help to trigger skin regeneration. Amino acids are also vital for the construction of collagen and elastin, which are the support structures of the skin.
- Dissolves scar tissues and helps the process of rebuilding new collagen and elastin into the skin, cumulative effects are more noticeable every day and become permanent.
- Inhibits and down-regulates the chemical inflammatory promoters that increase during skin inflammation
- Helps to hydrate dry and damaged skin due to the lack of moisture and natural oil that the skin requires to keep it looking healthy.
- Moisturizing agents such as lipids and humectants minimize damaging interactions between surfactants, and skin proteins and lipids, and thereby, reduce skin damage.
- Restores a younger skin by reconstructing the capacity of healthy skin to hold in moisture and by removing damaged proteins and replacing them with blemish free skin.
- BIOSKINCARE CREAM will help the skin to defend itself against the free radicals that cause premature aging and skin cancer thanks to the low molecular weight antioxidants it contains and the copper peptides which stimulate collagen synthesis and have an antioxidant effect.
Ongoing research about the causes and triggers of actinic keratosis and about the effects of the bioactive ingredients in the snail serum may explain the excellent results that thousands of our customers have found with the use of the cream as you may check the testimonials on this page.
The serum aids in the skin renewal process better than when skin regeneration is triggered with exfoliation or various controlled skin damage methods.
It enhances the skin's natural regenerative responses by stimulating new capillary formation (known as angiogenesis), which increases the biosynthesis of collagen, elastin and the water-holding proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans, providing an intense long-lasting hydration by reinforcing the resistance of the outer skin layer against dehydration.
The active ingredient penetrates deeply into the dermis.
We have developed a biotechnology that protects this precious serum from degrading, while being collected; avoiding hydrolysis of the proteins and de-naturalization of the enzymes and peptides contained in the serum while allowing for the release of the biological compound deep within the skin.
BIOSKINCARE CREAM has more to offer you than you may imagine, especially if you are suffering form actinic keratosis.
- It stimulates Collagen formation resulting in diminished fine lines and firmer skin.
- It stimulates Elastin formation, cutting down on sagging and fine lines.
- It will stimulate the replacement of damaged skin cells, therefore getting rid of scarring and necrotic tissues.
- Stimulate the formation of the extracellular binding between cells, thus improving skin strength, cutting down on fragility.
- Stimulate the formation of glycosaminoglycans, the molecules that give skin its capacity to keep in moisture. This helps to thicken the dermis resulting in a lessening of sagging and helps firm the skin.
- Increases blood vessel formation and oxygenation within the skin.
- Acts as a powerful antioxidant.
- Inhibits microbiological activity of dangerous, pathogenic skin bacteria, including acne.
We make several products with the serum as the base and by adding other natural ingredients that act in synergy or complement the effects of the serum so as to alleviate all symptoms and create visible results.
Our products are formulated for the treatment of acne, acne scars, wrinkles, burns, rosacea, keloids, actinic keratosis treatment and prevention, age spots, melasma, ingrown hairs, razor burns, the healing of sun damaged skin, the treatment of keratosis pilaris, extreme dermatitis, eczema, keloid scars, rosacea rhinophyma, and much more. We also make Bioskinexfol, a home microdermabrasion cream with the same base cream as in BIOSKINCARE and for faster exfoliation of dull and damaged skin.
The hypoallergenic skin creams will help to regenerate new collagen and elastin, which improves skin firmness and elasticity while increasing the production of water holding glycosaminoglycans (carboHYDRATE molecules that truly moisturize).
They also gently ditch out damaged cells of your skin regularly by the action of the metabolic digesting of damaged proteins by the enzymes that are essential components of the serum. And with no trauma, unlike exfoliating scrubs, microdermabrasion or peeling with acids.
Not only will you slough off the dull, dead, superficial layer of skin that is less than a micron thick, regularly, gently, by the action of dissolving enzymes, you will keep the circulation of oxygen and flowing through your body, which will rejuvenate your skin.
The serum does a fantastic job in increasing the skin's own natural defense mechanism against oxidative damage and reinforces the skins protective barrier. As a result the skin is able to remodel itself and restore its elastic properties, and clears the skin of mild actinic keratosis lesions and scales –sun induced, pre cancerous skin lesions.
Beware for large, multiple or inflamed actinic keratosis lesions need to be treated thoroughly to prevent their conversion to squamous cell carcinoma. This avoids the potentially more invasive and extensive treatment of a subsequent malignancy. Regular follow-up visits to a Doctor are usually needed when there are many keratosis scales.
Why Some of the Most Prestigious Dermatologists In the World Say It Works?
Link: Synapse 2008 - The website with publications of researchers enrolled by the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center of New York. Check this scientific research too: Synapse, Published on April 2012: "A secretion of the mollusc Cryptomphalus aspersa promotes proliferation, migration and survival of keratinocytes and dermal fibroblasts in vitro". Please note that our products are not endorsed by the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York but their published research validates the regenerative properties of the immune serum conclusively.
Scientific screening has unveiled the cellular and molecular effects that lead to skin regeneration when the serum collected from land snails of the species Helix Aspersa or Crystomphalus Aspersa, also known as the humble brown garden snail, (and without inflicting any harm to these surprising little creatures), is applied to human skin.
Scientific breakdown of the immune serum has discovered it is a powerful antioxidant substance also packed with enzymes, proteins, peptides, co-enzymes, trace elements (Copper, Zinc, Iron & Calcium) and complex sulfated acidic glyco (sugar) molecules that scientists classify as: glycoproteins, glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and proteoglycans.
All these act in synergy with other natural ingredients incorporated in the products to:
- normalize dilation of capillaries that otherwise cause red blotches on the skin
- stimulate an orderly release of fibrin which protects the fragile inner walls of the blood vessels and promotes unhindered blood flow promote the formation of new healthy capillaries
- induce the production of antimicrobial peptides on skin to destroy parasites, microbes, fungi and virus, without creating any bacterial resistance
- enhance inter and intracellular communication thus regulating the orchestrated renewal, turnover and regeneration of all the structural components of healthy skin
- regulate connective tissue breakdown by inhibiting or enhacing the action of enzymes
- moderate skin inflammation through antioxidants and enzymatic dissolution of damaged proteins thereby supporting the immune system
- trigger the regeneration of skin cells and the repair of injuries without aberrant scars
- safely support your body’s innate ability to heal itself
- intensively moisturize and naturally hydrate the skin from within by retaining water and enhancing the ability of your body to produce the water holding molecules in the skin matrix that give skin elasticity, strength, resilience and the capacity to withstand pressure and over-stretching.
BIOSKINBALM cream for dermatitis, rosacea and very dry skin
BIOSKINBALM helps in the quick recovery of healthy skin after procedures such as ionizing radiation for cancer treatment, laser surgery, microdermabrasion, or chemical peels.
Apply BIOSKINBALM twice a day to dramatically diminish symptoms and IMPROVE THE TEXTURE and appearance of skin that is extremely DRY or affected by stress, DERMATITIS (including radiodermatitis caused by ionizing radiation for cancer treatment) or Rosacea.
BIOSKINBALM is a complete and balanced intense skin treatment we guarantee will work for you.
Treatment for Rhynophyma Rosacea
Thought I would let you know that after using BIOSKINBALM for two months the rhinophyma (acne rosacea) on my nose is now impossible to see but I can still feel a bit of it. My nose now looks like it did before I got the first rhinophyma in 1999. What is more my brother reports from New Zealand that after only two weeks his nose, which is much worse than mine, has lost much of its redness and this is only after two weeks use. I have been using the product for two months. The acne scars on my forehead have reduced dramatically and can now be concealed with only the Jane Iredale mineral powder. No longer need the camouflage cream. I put a mention of this on the Femail board yesterday because that is where I discovered your product. I will also drop a line to my dermatologist.
Dorothea Glover. England.
BIOSKINREPAIR is formulated to shrink keloids and abnormal scars. And it also helps to prevent scars before and after surgery.
Shrinking of Keloids
I had an upper right pulmonary lobectomy; and, subsequently developed four small (1/2' or less) and one large (4') keloids on the chest wall on the right side of my rib cage and another small (1/2') one on my back. In about a year they became prominent keloids. Being African American and no stranger to keloids I took it in stride (conventional medical wisdom is that nothing can be done). But when they became painful; despite my being a fitness enthusiast and working out every day. Your cream has significantly reduced all of them, especially the larger one.

BIOSKINCARE when used with Isotretinoin Drugs (Accutane® and other brands) prevents and heals the side effects of those drugs that impair the production of sebum and make skin extremely fragile.
Takes Away The Side Effects of Accutane®
I have struggled with acne all my life but finally by my forties, with care, it was pretty much gone. Then as I approached the end of obtaining my college degree (very late in life!) I was very, very stressed out and sleep deprived. My face broke out horribly. I thought with over the counter stuff it would blow over in a week or two. It got worse and I could not stop picking and digging at it. My face looked almost bloody and was very greasy. The doctor put me on 20 mg of Accutane® per day. Accutane® is great and does work but I remembered all the awful scaling & peeling I had. But I had to do something so I dutiful began to take my Accutane® knowing it would knock out this acne.
About the same time I was cruising around online I stumbled about the phrase ‘does wonders for those taking accutane®’ or something like that. I tracked it down and came to this website. Oh it all looked too good to be true! I read and read and read some more, checked out every single ingredient, even found another product similar but it had ingredients known to cause acne. I thought it was expensive but I was desperate and I knew I could cancel on my credit card if I hated it. I got it and started to use it morning and night. Within seven days my skin began to calm down. I had very little skin dryness with the high dose of Accutane® I was taking.
It was slow going healing and scar fading because I am older but in two months time you will be very happy like I was. You will slowly get better day by day. Not good for a few days and then set back and then start again. You just keep going. It has diminished scars somewhat but it makes the rest of your skin look so good you look better all over!!! This without a doubt a good healthy product. It should be prescribed or sold with every single prescription of Accutane®. This is not just a feel good and smell good cream. This is medicinal and will truly help you. It sort of makes your skin whole, not just one part okay and the rest yucky, there is a overall consistency. I was generous with the first jar, every morning and night, now I am just at night. I use it all over my face, right around my eyes and on my throat sometimes. Life is hard enough but facing the world with attractive healthy skin is just one less thing to worry about. Thank from the bottom of my heart.

The Go With Your Own Glow campaign was developed by the SKIN CANCER FOUNDATION to encourage women to love — and protect — their skin, whatever its natural hue and prevent and stop cancer from becoming an epidemic. The campaign focuses on fashion and beauty trends to show that tanning is not fashionable or flattering and is obsolete as a lifestyle.
Natural, glowing, healthy skin is the look that makes everyone look their best. When you tan, indoors or out, you increase signs of aging as well as your risk of developing skin cancer. Once people stop associating tanned skin with beauty, we will really make headway against skin cancer.

I have been clearing up a number of Actinic Keratosis with Folic Acid, B12, B17 and Aloe vera gel over almost 10 years. The BIOSKINCARE Cream appears as though it will clear the remains up within 2-3 weeks. A significant lesion appeared last May as a result of the Aloe Vera etc treatment and although it has gradually been diminishing, there has been far greater change in 1 week with BIOSKINCARE than the last 9 months.
Peter Melvelle. NSW, Australia
Several years of going to dermatologists who used corrosive treatments on me for extensive actinic keratosis have not even remotely given me the results I've experienced from using BIOSKINCARE for just 3 weeks so far. I look forward to seeing the results I'll get after using BIOSKINCARE several more weeks! Suzanne H. Kahn. GA, US.
I have been using your product for actinic keratosis for over a month and have been very pleased with it's healing qualities. I'm excited to see how much more my skin can improve with it's use.
Deborah Leonard. London, UK.
I used this on my sunburn, and it was very effective in healing it quickly!
Erin Liedel. Boston, MA, USA
I am 27 years old and last year I started to get severe acne on my face and neck. I went to a dermatologist and they gave me Retin A and a few other products which only made my face worse. Being extremely desperate since I am getting married next year, I want an outdoor wedding and could not imagine being outside in the sunlight and having everyone see the flaws. I put in a search on the web and it pointed me to this website. I bought this product and have been using it for about 6 weeks now. I saw results within the first week. I feel like I have found a miracle cure. This is the best product I have ever used. Thank you so much!!!
Heather Masi. MD, USA
The product has made a huge improvement in the appearance of my skin. I am on oral contraceptives and the sun does not agree with my face anymore. It has lightened the brown spots left from the sun. Thanks.
Cathy Pennachio. PA, USA
Hi. I've been using Bioskincare for just over two months and there is a noticeable difference with my skin. My usually extremely acne prone skin has calmed down a LOT, and though I do still get outbreaks, they usually disappear when I apply more of the product on. I'm now trying to fade out my facial pigmentation (beauty spots caused by the sun I think), fingers crossed that this miracle cream can do that as well!
Michelle Doran. Hong Kong.
I was a definetely skeptic at first as I have bought all products there is to reduce my unsightly acne scars on my face. I am a believer even though my results have taken some time but they have been amazing.
Sunny Lee. CO, USA.
This product is truly amazing! I have had acne for over 20 years and have tried everything under the sun, and nothing has worked....until now, that is. Being a skeptic by nature and by profession (I'm a scientist), I didn't really expect anything to happen (as is the case in many of these beauty product ads), but I was desparate and willing to try anything once. After using your product for only one week, I noticed significant results. Was I ever surprised! Now I tell everyone about your wonderful product, and my face is testimony to that! -- Keep up the good work,
Cathi S. Folsom, CA, USA
I absolutely love this cream. The feel of it going on and of the skin after is delightful. We have used it on burns, scars, and rashes. It is a must in our house from now on as a skin moisturizer and first aid treatment. Nothing else compares to it, no matter how high-end or expensive. I LOVE IT. Thank you.
C. Ballard. Maryland, USA
I have been using BIOSKINCARE for a month now. My skin feels smooth and my skin tone has even out! I have oily skin and I am in my early twenties and it works for me. I actually don't use that much when I apply it to my face. It is so cool and light feeling, very comfortable. I just wanted to thank you again and let you know I'll be updating you to tell you how my face has improved! I'm excited! Thanks again.

SERUM: The snail serum supports the innate immune system of the snail and according to science it is composed of glycosaminoglycans, proteoglycans, enzymes, low molecular weight molecules that act as antioxidants in a way similar to vitamins, high molecular weight molecules that act as oxygen carriers, and oligoelements some of which act as coenzymes.
Biochemical analysis of the complex natural fluid secreted by snails that we use in our products shows it contains complex glycoconjugates, molecules made mainly of sulfated sugar or carbohydrate chains (sugar= glyco), globular soluble proteins, uronic acids and trace elements (like copper, zinc, calcium and iron)
The major organic (i.e. carbon-containing) components of human cells are proteins, lipids, various carbohydrates and carbohydrate-containing molecules, and the nucleic acids (DNA and RNA). The carbohydrate-containing molecules can be quite complex; those in which carbohydrates are attached to proteins or lipids are called glycoconjugates. There are three major classes of glycoconjugates: glycoproteins, proteoglycans, and glycolipids.
Glyco means "sweet" and refers to monosaccharides, or sugars. The role of carbohydrates (sugars) in energy production has been long understood. However, their additional, crucial role in orchestrating the healthy structure and function of the body is a relatively new discovery that is the subject of a new bourgeoning field of science called the “sweet science of glycobiology ”.
"The Sweet Science" of Glycobiology
Even as doctors and drug companies struggle to interpret and exploit the recent explosion of data on genes and proteins, yet another field of biology is waiting to break out: glycomics or glycobiology. This emerging discipline seeks to do for sugars and carbohydrates what genomics and proteomics have done for genes and proteins: move them into the mainstream of biomedical research and drug discovery.
The creation of this word (and the word Glycomics) only in very recent years is a pointer to what might be a new suffix, -omics. It has already appeared in genomics, the study of the genetic make-up of organisms, and proteomics, the study of the way proteins work inside cells, plus several compounds such as toxicogenomics. This new term refers to the study of sugars within organisms.
The glycome is the set of sugars an organism or cell makes. What is slowly becoming clear to biochemists is that these sugars play as vital a role in making the cell work as do the proteins. They combine to form giant molecules such as carbohydrates and cellulose; they are already known to regulate hormones, organise embryonic development, direct the movement of cells and proteins throughout the body, and regulate the immune system.
"Adaptogen": an agent that allows the body to counter adverse physical, chemical, or biological stressors by raising nonspecific resistance toward such stress, thus allowing the organism to “adapt” to the stressful circumstances".
Adaptogens have a normalizing effect on the body and are capable of either toning down the activity of hyperfunctioning systems or strengthening the activity of systems that are currently having a poor ability to respond adequately.
Many adaptogens contain polysaccharides that stimulate immune system components and have immune system enhancing benefits.
BIOCOMPATIBLE: the capability of coexistence with living tissues or organisms without causing harm. We believe this is a necessary 'new' qualifier for natural skin care products: "biocompatible" (or bio-compatible"). This term describes the type of product or ingredient that is compatible with living cells and has no harmful effects on cellular structures. It does not produce a toxic, injurious, or immunological response, or rejection in living tissues. It brings to your skin the benefits of all things natural and whole.
Enzymes are highly specialized proteins, which function as catalysts that accelerate or regulate biochemical reactions of the metabolic pathways.
In the skin, enzymes play a major role. Their functions are: - biosynthesis of the cellular components, - biodegradation of the cellular components, - regulation of the biosynthesis or biodegradation.
In healthy young skin an interactive balance exists between these 3 groups of enzymes. This balance is disturbed, when certain enzymes are excessively stimulated or inhibited. The result may be an oily, dry or irritated skin. Epidermal aging processes are activated as well.
During the epidermal aging the horny layer becomes thicker through hyper-keratinization and the living epidermis becomes thinner.
Fruit acids, or alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), have been used until now to regulate these processes. But, AHAs are known to have some side effects as they have to be used in formulations with acidic pH (3.7-4). Stinging or burning sensations can occur.
To avoid this all our products include our complex immune serum with active protease enzymes. The enzymatic complex has a mild keratolytic effect (mild exfoliation, smoothing) and stimulates the turnover of epidermal cells (regenerating activity) leading to a smoother and younger look of the skin.
The BIOCUTIS® range of skincare products are powered by a WHOLE biological ingredient – not an extract - and contain no drugs, thus making them impossible to patent.
The main ingredient in the Biocutis line of products is a complex natural compound that cannot be replicated in even the most sophisticated laboratory on Earth. Because it is a naturally occurring compound and not a man-made substance it cannot be patented. This would only be possible if it were an isolate from a natural substance or a man made ingredient achieved through chemical reactions. Thus, by its very nature no one can claim exclusive rights of use granted by a patent of invention.
BIOCUTIS® utilizes cutting edge biotechnology to embed the immune serum produced by the Helix Aspersa Müller into a lipid suspension for rapid transfer into the deepest layers of the skin’s dermis.
There have been many “breakthrough treatments” in recent history that have been shouted from the hilltops with a lot of passion and conviction but no real medical evidence to back them up. The exaggeration of the benefits of these “breakthrough treatments” has been used for financial gains with little to no regard for the consumer. To protect the public from these “Trojan horses” of health the medical industry has formulated a “protection plan”.
This “protection plan” is structured in a way that the only treatments that receive support are backed up by hard evidence. This is fantastic in theory because the consumer is protected from the “false prophets” of companies bent on making a quick buck from consumers with little to no regard for their well being.
The hospitals cannot bear the challenge or financial load required to verify which treatments work and which don’t work. The medical industry is forced to rely on the FDA – Food and Drug Administration – as the third party responsible for these decisions. The FDA looks to “clinical studies” as a way of proving the effectiveness and safety of a particular drug and if the proposed drug does not provide a benefit that is superior to existing drugs it denies approval.
“Clinical studies” require vast sums of money and untold years to complete and because of this the main incentive is “patent rights” besides FDA approval.
Patents filed with the Patent Office protect the product that a pharmaceutical company labors to bring to market after FDA approval. Other manufacturers can apply for a Licence from the FDA to produce generic versions once the patent expires.
Since the immune serum is not patentable and Companies are not granted any form of compensation for doing clinical studies on natural treatments, there is no incentive to get the approval of the FDA and then it is seldom prescribed by Doctors. It is thus an “alternative medicine”, with a twist: the supporting evidence has led to studies through academic sponsorship that position the immune serum as the natural skin care ingredient with the strongest scientific rationale.
