Merz Aesthetics Skincare, a division of Merz North America (U.S. affiliate of Merz Pharma Group) today announced the launch of its newest skincare product, MICRO•FIRM™  NECK & DÉCOLLETÉ Rejuvenating Complex by NEOCUTIS®. This advancement in anti-aging skincare was developed to help revitalize skin and improve the appearance of aging on the neck and décolleté. Formulated with Micro Protein Complex (MPC™), this  unique peptide blend is the first anti-aging technology to help rejuvenate skin’s elasticity .

“ After the face, the neck and décolleté are some of the first areas to reveal the signs of aging,” said Mark Lemko, Vice President and Head,  of Merz Aesthetics Skincare Division. “ Because this area has distinctively different needs than that of the face, we are thrilled to deliver a cutting-edge product that addresses the unique signs of aging to the neck and chest, such as sagging, horizontal neck lines, pigmentation and crepiness.”

MICRO•FIRM multi -tasks by targeting fine lines and wrinkles while nourishing the delicate skin on the neck, collarbone and bust. The super-charged combination of MPC and a targeted mix of ingredients promote softer, more luminous skin and help create a more youthful, sculpted profile. This specialized cream delivers the following distinctive features and benefits:

  MPC, an elegant blend of lab-created peptides, helps to:

– enhance elasticity through promotion of Elastin formation

– boost Collagens III and VII leading to the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles

– firm thin, loose skin on the neck, collarbone and bust through nourishment of Collagen I and Hyaluronic Acid

  Sodium Carboxymethyl Beta-glucan provides a tightening effect that helps to accentuate the natural contours of the neck and décolleté.

  Beet Root Extract conditions and strengthens skin for renewed vitality while defending against premature aging.

  Glycolic Acid smooths crepey-looking skin and diminishes the appearance of age spots and uneven skin tone, creating a flawless finishing touch.

  Stabilized Vitamin C defends against skin-aging oxidative stress and environmental factors to help preserve skin’s youthful appearance.

  Glycerin, a humectant, and Argan and Jojoba oils, emollients, work alongside Wild Yam Extract to infuse moisture and help fortify skin.

  Formulated with silicones and natural oils, it creates an elegant, light texture for smooth application

  Paraben-free, fragrance-free and free of color additives

  Suitable for all skin types
