Repairogen is a company focused on commercializing advances in DNA-based skin repair, critical to reducing risk of skin cancer and improving the health & appearance of skin.
Repairogen’s screening of over 150,000 naturally occurring compounds has identified multiple new Natural Actives that can penetrate the skin and significantly reduce multiple signs of premature aging.
Repairogen’s mechanism of action (discovered at Cornell University) improves the skins natural repair process after DNA damage. DNA damage to the skin occurs naturally from exposure to UV sun rays or artificially from exposure to artificial UV light.
Repairogen holds an exclusive license to US and international patents claiming methods of inhibiting Cul4A to enhance DNA-repair activity and specific Cul4A inhibitors.
In addition to reducing the risk of skin cancer, Repairogen’s novel technology significantly advances the naturally skin repair process that occurs in skin. This advancement manifests itself in improved skin elasticity, reduction of lines & wrinkles, and reduction of dark spots and possibly skin cancer.
Repairogen®’s revolutionary advancement in natural enzymatic skin repair delays the visible appearance of skin aging.
How does skin damage happen?
Your skin is being constantly bombarded by external environmental factors that can cause damage on a cellular level. One of the most damaging factors on skin comes from UV radiation.
Why does skin repair need assistance?
The skin repair process needs assistance because it is not working at optimal levels while our skin is constantly being exposed to external environmental factors (sun, smoke, etc.) which prematurely age our skin.
How does natural enzymatic repair work?
Skin cells have a natural mechanism involving a variety of enzymes that repair damage caused by external environmental factors.
How does Repairogen make the process more efficient?
Repairogen’s technology enhances the efficiency of the process by two distinct mechanisms of action: (1) it prolongs the time a cell has to discover the damage caused, and (2) it increases the activity of the enzymes involved in the repair process.
What role does DNA play IN SKIN AGING?
DNA plays an important role in aging because un-repaired damage to DNA directly and indirectly contributes to premature skin aging.
Why is Repairogen®'s Technology Special?
Repairogen's technology enhances the efficiency the skin’s natural repair process through two distinct mechanisms of action. Firstly, it prolongs the time a cell has to discover the damage caused and secondly by increasing the activity of the enzymes involved in the repair process.
What is the difference between Repairogen's technology and other products claiming to promote skin repair?
Repairogen’s research and development is focused on improving the natural repair processes that take place in skin cells. This differentiates Repairogen’s technology from skincare products that use exogenous materials from plants, and even bacteria, to repair skin cells.
What role does DNA damage play in aging?
The DNA damage theory of aging asserts that aging is a result of the accumulation of unrepaired DNA damage in cells. This unrepaired damage to DNA leads to aging because it causes cells to die prematurely and increases dysfunction in cells that survive with DNA damage.
How will Repairogen's products interact with Your Skin?
Repairogen's products will interact with the mechanism in skin cells that identifies DNA damage and enhance the skin’s ability to repair DNA damage.
Will Repairogen create a full range of products? Including cleansers, toners, and sunscreens?
For now, Repairogen’s core focus is to develop a superior line of reparative anti-aging products using our innovative technology. We are therefore directing our resources towards this core focus that we believe will have the greatest impact on skin health.
Will Repairogen's products be for all skin types?
Yes, Repairogen products will be suitable for all skin types.
Will Repairogen's products be “cosmeceuticals”? Are “cosmeceuticals” required to have FDA approval before entering the marketplace?
Repairogen’s products may be considered “cosmeceuticals”, but the term was coined by the cosmetics industry and is not a term recognized by the FDA. Cosmetic products and “cosmeceuticals” do not require FDA approval before entering the marketplace, but Repairogen is conducting very thorough and extensive studies of all of its products prior to entering the market.
What type of Safety testing has Repairogen undergone?
Repairogen is performing extensive safety testing on the active ingredients in our products.
Will Repairogen test its products on animals?
No, Repairogen will not test its products on animals.
What testing organization oversees Repairogen products?
Repairogen employs a number of different organizations to perform testing of its products and uses scientific models that are standard in the industry. Where appropriate, Repairogen follows the technical guidelines provided in the Personal Care Products Council Safety Evaluation Guidelines.
How does Repairogen compare with competing products?
Repairogen is superior to competing products because it has a unique mechanism of action that enhances the skin’s natural repair process. It increases DNA repair capability without introducing exogenous materials from sources such as bacteria and algae. In addition, Repairogen’s technology is based on scientific discoveries and has been reported in peer reviewed scientific journals.
Who are Repairogen's scientific advisors?
Repairogen’s scientific advisors are Dr. Pengbo Zhou, Ph.D. and Dr. J. David Warren, Ph.D., professors and inventors of Repairogen’s technology.
