NuovoSoft-16™ is a high purity amino acid (C16/C16) waxy amide that can act as a bio-mimetic of a C16 ceramide.

Additionally, it may provide the physiological and cell signaling benefits known for this class of waxy, ’cere’ amides.

NuovoSoft-16™ is recommended for anti-aging, skin moisturizing and wrinkle reduction. NuovoSoft-16 applications include anti-aging products, anti-wrinkle products, pore reduction products, facial moisturizers, eye creams, acne treatment products, skin lighting products, body firming lotions and sunscreen creams.
