What Does This New RF3 Invention By The Drs Rodan and Fields Team Mean?
“This innovation is a modern way of thinking about antioxidants. By considering both intracellular and extracellular reactive oxygen species and searching explicitly for synergistic interactions, this complex adds a new level of security for our customers. It fulfils the vision of our Founders to give all people the best skin of their lives, “Dr Tim Falla, Chief Scientific Officer of Rodan + Fields.
Scientists at the Rodan + Fields Berkeley Innovation Center have created the complex by systematically optimising the permutation of ingredients explicitly for synergistic combinations. The in-house team demonstrated that one particular permutation, a mixture of three distinct molecules, each targeting different biological pathways associated with the mitigation of the effects of reactive oxygen species, offered additional downstream benefits for mitigating inflammatory biomarkers (inflammation-induced ageing) photoaging and hyperpigmentation triggered by environmental.
The results support the notion that a multi-mechanistic antioxidant complex will synergistically minimise environmental harm to the skin and provide superior protection when used in skin care formulations.
