CAMBRIDGE, ON, Aug. 26, 2014 /CNW/ - US CosmeceuTechs, LLC (USC), distributor of PRIORI® Skincare, Revaléskin® and PRIORI® MD, is excited to announce an exclusive partnership with Elizabeth Arden to combine their 100 years in spa heritage, R&D, and marketing with its scientific heritage and novel, innovative technologies.

Elizabeth Arden tapped the innovation expertise of USC and its CEO, Joe Lewis to collaborate on Elizabeth Arden  PRO. Lewis first partnered with Elizabeth Arden, Inc. in 2005 to launch Prevage®, which has won more than 160 awards globally. Lewis, a chemist and cosmeceutical skincare researcher, is best known for introducing some of the world's most cutting-edge skincare ingredients including Alpha-Hydroxy Acid in 1983, Idebenone in 2004 and CoffeeBerry® in 2007. He is also the founder of PRIORI® Skincare.

With this new partnership, Elizabeth Arden will enter the global professional skincare channel with the launch of Elizabeth Arden  PRO, a comprehensive skincare line that incorporates groundbreaking, clinically proven technologies in both homecare and professional treatment products.

"With Elizabeth Arden  PRO, we have an opportunity to provide the professional skincare market with some of our most advanced skincare technology," said Joe Lewis, CEO of USC. "These products are the result of years of research and the development of cutting-edge, clinically proven ingredients. All of this results in a highly effective yet aesthetically elegant skincare line."

Elizabeth Arden's entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to innovation, quality and excellence remain the soul of the company today, and USC is excited to partner with such a longstanding, esteemed member of the beauty industry.

Collaborative research between one of the most established and well-known cosmetics brands, Elizabeth Arden, and one of the world's most innovative, leading skincare scientists, Joe Lewis, results in a cutting-edge cosmeceuticals brand: Elizabeth Arden  PRO. This cutting-edge cosmeceuticals brand is based on clinical trials and the Skin Health & Beauty Pyramid™ philosophy.

Elizabeth Arden boasts over 100 years of innovation in skin health and beauty, while US CosmeceuTechs, LLC has a 25-year history in pioneering new molecular innovations in the cosmeceutical skincare industry.

Elizabeth Arden started one of the first global prestige beauty companies at a time when it was uncommon for women to use cosmetics, much less run their own company. As a champion of women's suffrage, successful international entrepreneur and her holistic approach to beauty, she set the scene for what today is modern skin care. Elizabeth Arden opened her first spa in 1910: Red Door Spa in New York, and was one of the first in the industry that emphasized scientific theories as a basis for their skin care products.

PROFESSIONAL IN-SALON  TREATMENTS
Elizabeth Arden  PRO offers professional-strength, chemical peel treatments to address the key skin concern areas and are designed for fast, visible results with no downtime. Elizabeth Arden PRO professional salon treatments are uniquely tailored with specific combinations/concentrations of ingredients to "exfoliate" the stratum corneum without invasive damage to the underlying viable epidermis. Each customizable treatment includes a customized skincare regimen to address the key concerns of the client and to ensure that the most appropriate products are used for maximum results. The core treatment products is Hydrating Peel Gel, which uses a powerful, effective combination and concentration of anti-aging and hydrating ingredients including Lactic Acid (AHA), Glycolic Acid (AHA) and Salicylic Acid (BHA) plus antioxidants to help improve skin hydration and give a fresh, healthy radiant look to the skin.

HOME SKINCARE REGIMENS
The simple, concise Elizabeth Arden  PRO skincare regimens include homecare products that are innovative, highly effective, and multifunctional  in that they are formulated with some of today's most advanced ingredients and skincare technologies, such as the new patent-pending AHA Retinoid Conjugate. This conjugate is designed to work with the skin to deliver benefits of both AHA and Retinoid (Vitamin A derivative), while helping to reduce irritation. All Elizabeth Arden PRO homecare products offer multifunctional benefits to address clients' overall skincare concerns and are oil-free, non-comedogenic, dermatologist tested, fragrance-free and paraben-free.

Elizabeth Arden  PRO will only be sold to the professional skincare market and will be available August 2014 only at professional skincare locations.
