In 1999, a customer asked pharmacist George Faltaous to formulate a wrinkle cream for her skin. Like countless people before her, she had tried numerous skin care products promising to reduce the appearance of aging – everything from facial wrinkles and general loss of elasticity to dark circles under the eyes – and countless people before her had always been disappointed.
George agreed to help. Drawing on his background in pharmaceuticals, chemistry and nutrition, he created a simple compound containing strong antioxidants and collagen builders. To safely maximize absorption of the active ingredients, George used a base of calendula flower extract, a plant that has been used in natural healing for millennia.
