Back in 1983, the noted skin care professional Carmen Fusco decided to begin manufacturing his innovative Rejuvenex formula. Mr. Fusco is both a noted nutritionist and a professor at New York Medical College. Professor Fusco’s goal for Rejuvenex was that his product would reflect his own skin care philosophy, which was that internal beauty and external beauty are both crucial to an overall sense of contentment. That sounds lovely, but what does it mean? Basically, that attending to your diet is as important as worrying about your exercise routine. Ultimately, both of these factors will reflect in your skin age, and if you address both of these concerns you’ll end up looking years younger. Today, Carmen Fusco operates his own prestigious practice in Manhattan, where he preaches the virtues of Rejuvenex’s comprehensive skin care approach.
In total, Rejuvenex encompasses seven individual products. Each one is aimed at a specific area of the body or a specific skin condition. The full line consists of the following products: Ultra Rejuvenex, Ultra RejuveNight, Ultra RejuvenEyes, Rejuvenex Body lotion, RejuveneX Factor, the original Rejuvenex and Hi-Power capsules.
The Rejuvenex line boasts several different featured active ingredients. The manufacturer claims that these ingredients are what really sets their product apart from the rest of the rapidly expanding anti-aging skin care market. First, the newest Rejuvenex treatments include the ingredient Matryxil 3000, which is an innovative new peptide that has shown some promise at increasing collagen production. Rejuvenex is also known for its inclusion of alpha hydroxy acid, which is both an astringent and a proven hydrator. Unfortunately, this ingredient has also been linked to increased sensitivity to sunlight in some users. Finally, Rejuvenex claims to offer an “extraordinary patented delivery system” to help all of these miracle ingredients penetrate the user’s skin but few details are offered regarding the specifics of this delivery system.
Other key active ingredients found in various Rejuvenex products include everything from the antioxidant grape seed extract, the hydration agent Ceramide 2, lactic acid, pomegranate extract and RNA.

The Bottom Line
Rejuvenex has managed to put a lot of products out there since the mid-1980’s. They’ve certainly updated their line on several occasions but, overall, we’d like to see a bit more research and development info offered on the official product website. While Rejuvenex does offer a lot of solid ingredients, we don’t see anything that’s truly proprietary in any of their products. Additionally, it could be difficult and costly for some users to come up with the combination of Rejuvenex products that’s just right for them and their skin.
