That piece of information has literally changed my life. And I'm not being dramatic! It has transformed the way I care for myself, specifically my skin. It's the reason I'm proud to share my age, it's the reason I launched Glotrition Cellular Skincare, and it remains the driving force behind all the science based products we create here.
Before I tell you how this whole thing got started, there are a few important things I'd like to share. First, I want you to know that Glotrition is a family run company. I have four amazing sons who happily pitch in to pack up and send out orders, run errands, or whatever else I can bribe them to do. :) My dad is our Director of Operations, lending his decades of business experience to make sure things run smoothly. Mom keeps the numbers straight, and I have trusted team members, who may as well be family, carving out new sales avenues so our phenomenal products are available to the most number of people.
Our lab is based in Dallas, Texas, and happens to be one of the largest and most highly certified labs in the country. We have a team of biochemists, nutritional chemists, researchers and technicians who work diligently, breaking new scientific ground by creating our signature "Beauty From The Inside Out" systems. We are also dedicated to using only the best, clinical grade ingredients. I mentioned "systems", yet, at the time I write this, we have only launched our fantastic Collagen Boosting System. I suppose I've just let the cat out of the bag...stay tuned for more groundbreaking inside/out systems. You are about to be amazed. Ok...back to the story.
My name is Lisa Pineiro, and I've essentially grown up on live television. I was barely 20 years old when I took my first on-air news job (Everyone looks good on TV at 20!) For the next 27 years, I honed my craft- anchoring, reporting, hosting, you name it. I've covered breaking news, I've interviewed celebrities and Presidential candidates. I also fell in love with science and medical reporting. So, when I started to notice the signs of aging that were becoming impossible to hide from a high-definition camera lens, I turned to science for answers.
I interviewed dermatologists, researchers, and leading experts in the skincare world and they all said the same thing. Topical signs of aging (wrinkles, sagging, discoloration) were really just symptoms of the aging that was happening on a cellular level, in the form of free radical damage and collagen loss. So, how could my expensive face creams change what was happening on the inside? They couldn't. My experts explained that, while the right topical ingredients can make a notable difference in the appearance of my skin, imagine the difference I'd see if I started nourishing my cells from the inside too! They shared clinical data showing the combined results of treating both the cause of aging on the inside and the effects of aging on the outside. I was sold, and the idea for Glotrition Cellular Skincare took hold.
One of the first things I learned was the importance of collagen. It's the most abundant structural protein in our connective tissue. In fact, collagen makes up 75% of our skin! Sadly, though, from the approximate age of 25, women lose 1% of collagen a year and we never get it back. Across Asia, taking collagen supplements is very common. And the trend of taking collagen orally is spreading quickly across Europe. But, not all ingestible collagen works the same way. I wanted Glotrition to be one of the first to introduce an effective ingestible collagen product in the U.S.
The Glotrition team uniquely combined:
We knew our Collagen Peptide Drink Mix would work wonders on the cause of aging on the inside, but what about all those signs of aging on the outside? We needed an effective treatment that would work synergistically with our Drink Mix, addressing the three main signs of aging skin:
Leave it to our award winning team to nail it! They combined the very best of French, Swiss and Spanish skincare technology to create our Age-Defying Topical Treatment with Phylaplex™, our proprietary blend of the most effective, clinically studied anti-aging ingredients available on the market today. This powerful blend contains active ingredients present in clinically effective amounts. This means if a clinical study done on a particular ingredient used 5%, then you are getting 5% in our product. Very few skincare companies can say that. And the results?? Well, just take a look here.
Glotrition is also committed to reducing waste. Our packaging is all recyclable and our beautiful glass water bottles ensure that you can Drink Yourself Gorgeous and keep the planet gorgeous too.
We hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy creating them. Here's to beautiful skin from the inside out!
