Founding of NeoStrata
The NeoStrata Company was founded by Dr. Eugene van Scott from New York and Dr. Ruey Yu from Taiwan. The two researchers have worked together for more than 20 years prior to this and were the first to make the groundbreaking discovery of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) in relation to its ability to renew and rejuvenate aging skin, diminishing lines and wrinkles, among other skin enhancing capabilities. The two doctors have since discovered and co-invented various other skin beneficial compounds, published in many peer-reviewed medical journals, and hold the original patent for AHAs as well as over 100 patents in the US and other countries.
The NeoStrata AHA
Well-formulated skincare products containing AHAs are those that have effective concentrations of AHAs blended with a formula base of a slightly acidic pH for AHAs to function properly and exert maximum beneficial effects on the skin. The exfoliation that AHAs provide sloughs away old, dead cells of the skin. This reduces the thickness of the skin’s outermost layer, which helps the skin to immediately look smoother and feel softer. The integrity of the skin remains unchanged, however, and the newer, healthier skin underneath is revealed. This in turn can solve many skin problems, including lines and wrinkles, dryness, acne, skin discolorations and hyperpigmentation, as well as more serious skin conditions such as psoriasis and keratosis pilaris. In addition, further research shows that AHAs can help increase the thickness of the underlying layers of skin, improve skin structure, increase collagen and elastin production, and enhance penetration of other skincare ingredients.
NeoStrata's Targeted Skincare Solutions
Today, the NeoStrata Company has full lines of products created under the CoverBlend, Exuviance, NeoCeuticals, and NeoStrata brands. All of these products provide the anti-aging properties of AHAs formulated with other complementary advanced skincare ingredients. In addition, these NeoStrata Company lines are also one of the few skin care brands that successfully include products that perfectly blend AHAs with SPF sunscreen protection.

What's New at NeoStrata?
A new highlight of NeoStrata products is the inclusion of novel polyhydroxy acids (PHAs). Similar to AHAs, PHAs also offer powerful anti-aging benefits with less irritation. The comparatively larger molecules of PHAs act as humectants in the skin by actively binding to water, thus keeping the skin moist and comfortable. Moreover they penetrate the layers of the skin more gently, thus reducing any potential irritation they may cause. Exuviance, NeoCeuticals and Neostrata product lines feature the PHA derivative gluconolactone (also patented by Dr. Scott and Dr. Yu). Gluconolactone is derived from corn sugar, and is clinically proven to provide potent anti-aging effects while causing minimal irritation to the skin, and is suitable for even the most sensitive skin types, including rosacea-prone skin. In addition, it bestows powerful antioxidant effects and inhibits the action of the enzyme elastase, thus preventing the breakdown of elastin due to age and environmental damage. This helps to preserve the skin’s youthfulness, elasticity and suppleness.
Another PHA derivative featured in Exuviance, NeoCeuticals and Neostrata product lines is lactobionic acid. Bionic is derived from milk sugar, and is another highly potent antioxidant that offers beneficial effects to recover and reduce the signs of aging skin. Moreover, the lactobionic acid is mild and gentle on the skin, and works effectively to strengthen and hydrate the skin.
