Internationally-renowned organization chooses Olay over more expensive
TORONTO, Feb. 20 /CNW/ - The U.S.-based Good Housekeeping Research
Institute recently put several pricey face creams to the test and found that

available at mass retailers for a suggested price of $34.99(xx). The test

"We were thrilled to hear Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting cream fared so
well in the Good Housekeeping test," says Jennifer Sutherland, Olay Canada
Marketing. "Olay prides itself on leading-edge skin care science and
recognition from an internationally-renowned organization like the Good
Housekeeping Research Institute, has reinforced what we already know."
Consumer product evaluation experts at the Good Housekeeping Research
Institute applied several creams - the Olay product as well as others with
various price tags - to volunteers' skin and evaluated hydration levels over
seven hours using a Corneometer (a device that measure's the skin's moisture).
Results clearly indicated Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream keeps skin
better hydrated for a longer period.
The Good Housekeeping Research Institute only grants the Good
Housekeeping Seal to products that pass their rigorous scrutiny, and only
allows advertising of products which meet strict standards of consumer
protection and quality assurance. Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream has
received both these acclaims.
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream was launched in August 2007 and is
the 15th addition to the highly-successful Regenerist boutique. With the
highest concentration of Regenerist's exclusive amino-peptide complex, it
regenerates volume and shape across millions of skin's surface cells and
hydrates to progressively help firm the appearance of areas prone to sagging,
even the jaw line, smooth skin's surface and restore elasticity.
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is available now where Olay
products are sold. The suggested retail price is $34.99(xx) for 50ml. For more
