The AminoGenesis approach to wrinkle fighting is to make use of newly developed amino acid based technology. AminoGenesis was developed by a team of skin care industry professionals and the official website claims that the finished product incorporates ten years worth of their findings. Amino acids, the makers go on to explain further, are responsible for creating proteins that are easily usable in the fight against wrinkles. Collagen and elastin are both the result of combining amino acids. Dr. T. Joseph Lin is credited with much of AminoGenesis’ development, along with one Ron Cummings, who himself suffered from severe free radical damage and contact dermatitis.
So what goes into AminoGenesis? The product claims to incorporate seventeen “purified, plant-derived amino acids” into its formula. What does this mean for the user? The introduction of these amino acids onto the skin’s surface area will, in theory, boost the skin’s own production of healthy proteins such as collagen and lipids. As our skin ages, production of these proteins slows. A person’s diet is another way that they naturally take in amino acids. However, AminoGenesis claims to deliver a potent dose of everything your skin needs, all at once.
All of the amino acids featured in AminoGenesis are all-natural and are derived from plants. According to claims made on the official product website, 9 of these are “essential” meaning that you body cannot produce them itself and requires them from an outside source. The product formulas are water based, and many also contain moisturizing ingredients. The product also claims to be hypoallergenic, meaning it should be safe for users with sensitive skin. Interestingly, AminoGenesis is also used as a skin care treatment by some chemotherapy centers.

The Bottom Line
AminoGenesis looks like a solid, general skin care option, albeit perhaps on the more expensive side. Since the AminoGenesis formula was originally targeted towards specific skin conditions like contact dermatitis and scarring, these seems to be the product’s real forte. However, if wrinkles are your main concern, you may want to keep looking for something more specifically aimed towards anti-aging.
