Now, news for everyone....

The last time I wrote about Boots No. 7, I heard from many of you how much you like their products.  In fact, several readers from the UK really sang the company's praises.  So, you might be interested to learn they have an advanced new anti-aging serum.  Here are the facts:
Product Benefits
 Harnessing the most advanced anti-wrinkle power from Boots yet, the new No7 Protect & Perfect
ADVANCED Serum is clinically proven to be even more effective at reducing the appearance of fine
lines and wrinkles
 Featuring a light texture, this enhanced formula with Matrixyl3000Plus™ instantly moisturizes skin and
works better and more effectively to tackle the first signs of skin aging
 With a combination of Matrixyl3000Plus™ and a new di-peptide, this potent formula results in more
than 30 times the repair power of the original formulation
 Out of hundreds of No7 users who tested this new serum, 80% saw their best anti-aging results ever
 Over 2,600 volunteers and 22 separate studies were conducted to create this fine-tuned formula,
which has become the year’s biggest selling serum in the UK
Key Ingredients
 Building on the success of the original Protect & Perfect Serum, this newly formulated serum is the most
tested consumer product from Boots and features a mix of targeted, key ingredients, including:
o Matrixyl3000Plus™– Boot’s renowned anti-aging peptide that works to repair damaged
skin and restore key proteins that are often broken down as we age
o NEW DI-PEPTIDE – a high-power, next generation peptide that complements MATRIXYL
3000 and ultimately makes the anti-aging results even more potent
o ANTIOXIDANT COMPLEX – a patented complex of Vitamin C, mulberry extracts and
ginseng keep skin balanced and protected
o RICE PEPTIDE AND ALFALFA COMPLEX – works as an enzyme inhibitor to help reduce the

activity of enzymes that break down healthy tissue
