The dermatological brand of beauty and skincare group IDS (Innovative Dermatological Solutions), which operates under the JYSK Group and also offers medical aesthetic treatments under IDS Clinic as well as facial services under IDS Aesthetics, works with JYSK-owned lab HVNS Productions to develop exclusive formulations and technologies. Among these innovations is the patented NEULASTIN, which combines select highly active ingredients that stimulate elastin and collagen synthesis with an enhanced delivery system that boosts penetration. The skin is the body’s largest organ, and its primary role is to protect and keep out all things foreign—including skincare, which is why it’s difficult for skincare ingredients to penetrate. NEULASTIN works in a clever way, “opening” temporary channels between skin cells so that active ingredients are able to pass through the stratum corneum to stimulate elastin and collagen production deep within, for plumper, firmer and suppler skin.
