Innovation is the lifeblood of any industry. The world of skin care is no exception, as proven by Foster’s Lab, an innovative skincare brand and maker of the newly released high tech Anti-Tech Serum, a unique product that helps protect skin against modern day harmful factors, specifically blue light emitted from our ever-present electronic devices.
According to Foster’s Lab, research shows that blue light penetrates the skin, generating reactive oxygen species that lead to cell damage, causing inflammation and the breakdown of healthy collagen and elastin, as well as hyperpigmentation. Their Anti-Tech Serum creates a shield against blue light, enhancing skin’s vibrancy and youthfulness.
The serum’s active ingredients are engineered specifically to complement one another flawlessly: Sustainably sourced cacao seed extract reduces oxidative stress of blue light pollution to protect against the skin against digital aging. Bakuchiol – the first natural alternative to Retinol – is clinically proven to reduce multiple signs of aging including roughness, dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. A Vitamin C booster acts as an antioxidant, anti-acne, anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and toning powerhouse, and travels into the dermis to stimulate collagen production. Additional active ingredients soothe sensitive skin while stimulating healing and repair. The USA-manufactured product is non-GMO and without sulfates, SLS and SLES, parabens, formaldehyde-releasing agents, phthalates, mineral oil, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone, triclosan, or triclocarban.
The product retails for $68, a fraction of the price of other high-end facial serums, and can be purchased via the Foster's Lab website.
“I've been in this industry a long time, and I’ve learned which ingredients work best together and which do not,” said Thomas Gillman Siebenaler, lead chemist and co-founder of Foster’s Lab. “We developed a formula in which all of our active ingredients complement each other to protect one’s skin from challenges old and new. We’ve ensured we are using the best quantities of those active ingredients to deliver the best results.”
“We wanted to create a product that we believe is significant for everyone for maintaining healthy skin, including those who might not be aware of artificial blue light’s impact,” said Anthony Shook, co-founder of Foster’s Lab. “Foster’s Lab was developed to provide the best solution for today’s unique challenges and help people look and feel their best. That means the highest quality ingredients in high quantities, to generate real results.”
The family-owned Foster’s Lab brand is a tribute to Siebenaler’s great-grandfather and Shook’s great-great-grandfather, Thomas Gilman (T.G.) Foster, who created the Foster’s brand in 1895 with the founding of Foster’s, a family of regional general stores in the Midwest. The brand plans to introduce additional products, including a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer.
