Rejuvel Bio-Sciences, Inc. Subsidiary Gets its First Order from Digicom

Rejuvel Bio-Sciences

REJUVEL 3D is the first-ever three-dimensional skin renewal system produced by using a licensed patented NASA technology. REJUVEL 3D is an ageless infinity microgravity cell renewal cream. Rejuvel is the only company in the world to have the right to use the patented NASA technology to manufacture topical cosmetics and hair care products. The key ingredient of REJUVEL 3D is obtained from the stem cells of a type of green tea plant, Camellia Sinensis,which are expanded in a special bioreactor developed by NASA and imitates the microgravity conditions of outer space. This increases the activities of the cells and promotes the body’s self-healing processes. The potency of these cells is superior to that of cells grown using conventional methods as they grow differently in microgravity. Clinically tested, the results show increased hydration, visible reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and enhanced overall skin health.
