REGENEX cream is a formulation of the finest botanical ingredients scientifically proven (see "Ingredient Highlights" below) to aid in the body's natural healing efforts while also providing relief from the discomforts of inflammation. Acne? Backache? Cuts/ Bruises/ Scrapes? Wrinkles/ Dry Skin? Arthritis? Headache? Bursitis? Muscle Soreness? Scars? Stretch Marks? Vitiligo? Mosquitoes (and their bites)?

And it's available exclusively here at www.healthislife.org!
From the carrier oils (a blend of natural/ organic coconut oils) to the penetration-enhancing solvent/ skin repairer (d-limonene from citrus rinds) and select herbal extracts/ essential oils, even to the viscosity and thermodynamic properties of the emulsion, every facet of REGENEX cream has been carefully selected to yield a broad range of maximum benefit! Regenerate!

Ingredient Highlights (more coming soon):
Organic Virgin/ Natural Coconut Oil Blend –This ultra stable oil blend is also rich in various antioxidants and medium chain triglycerides that have been found to have anti-inflammatory, analgesic (pain relieving), and antimicrobial effects (1,2). Lauric acid, one of the active constituents of coconut oil has even been found to enhance delivery of desired agents through the skin to targeted tissues (3). This compound has also been found to be exceptionally potent against follicular acne, in one study showing fifteen times greater effectiveness than standard acne medications, such as the toxic compound benzoyl peroxide (3b)! Coconut is also one of the lowest oils in omega-6 fatty acid content, which is fuel for inflammation via the arachidonic acid pathway.
Shea Butter – A cellular nutrient powerhouse, this oil has been used for centuries, in Africa, for its highly emollient properties. What is less known about this wonderful oil is it’s inherent ability to reduce inflammation and provide relief from aches and pains (4,6). Some studies have even shown scar tissue and tumor regression due to topical application (5,6).
D-limonene – An extract from citrus peels, this natural solvent has been shown to be a safe and effective skin repairer and scar minimizer (7). It is also a highly effective permeation enhancer for ensuring delivery of active ingredients to tissues under the skin (8). This is good news! Not only does this natural and non-toxic chemical smell great, it has tremendous anti-inflammatory effects: in one study even rivaling that of the steroid drug dexamethasone (9). Other studies have highlighted its anti-tumor effects, particularly against certain types of skin cancer (10, 11). Concerned about mosquitoes? D-Limonene has also been cited as one of the most effective natural insect repellants (12)... An added bonus!
High Oleic Sunflower Oil - The amazing properties of this oil have much to do with the fact that this particular type of sunflower oil is low in omega-6 yet high in omega-9 fatty acids. Whereas omega-6 fatty acids can contribute to inflammation, omega-9's help reduce the severity of the inflammatory response (13). Furthermore, oleic acid (omega-9) has been found to be a very effective agent in increasing transdermal delivery of nutrients and active ingredients (14). Yes... we are, in fact, trying to get under your skin... But for a good purpose... To regenerate!
