Nerium Skin Care

March 31, 2012 @ 03:34 PM -- by Douglas Mackenzie


Have you heard of Nerium?  NeriumAD Age-Defying Treatment is a relatively new skin care product in the anti-aging market that I found out about recently from my wife Diane.  Diane, who reps for Athena cosmetics (Revitalash), was given a bottle of NeriumAD by a well known esthetician in Ventura.  She started using it and was impressed by the quick improvements to her skin tone and pigmentation.  Not that she didn’t have good skin already, but she was so impressed she stopped using her normal regimen of products, including hydroquinone, and just started using NeriumAD at night.  Then she had me start using it, and I got hooked too!  My skin is also pretty good, but I had some irritation and sun damage especially on the sides of my neck.  I saw improvement within a week, and I still see continued improvements a month later.  


NeriumAD contains extracts of the nerium oleander plant, which has been used for centuries in folk medicine for various skin disorders such as dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, and cold sores.  It has ongoing research activities for its anti-cancer effects and most of the clinical research is being done at M.D. Anderson in Houston.  The proprietary compound in Nerium is NAE-8, a topical formulation of nerium oleander extract isolated using an aloe vera process media .  The extract’s topical safety has been extensively studied and you can read the research and safety details here.  Basically, you put it on your skin, it acts on the skin, and that’s it.


It’s easy to use, with just one application at night on damp skin after cleansing.  Avoid it’s use with Retin-A or similar products.  I love Obagi products and their effect on sundamaged skin, but for long term use I’d recommend NeriumAD over hydroquinones and retinoids.  NeriumAD is also great for men, as it doesn’t require a whole collection of products to apply, and doesn’t smell girly. 


We now carry NeriumAD in my office in Santa Barbara for $120 + tax retail.  You can also order it online here, and it ships for $110 + S&H for one bottle or for $80 + S&H per bottle if you get on a monthly auto-ship.  One bottle should last an average of 6 weeks.  These prices are actually pretty amazing for a product like this that really has no similar competitor.  (Click here to see some comparison prices of other products)
