Neocutis is a brand that utilizes Swiss Technology to create products that not only eliminate the visible signs of scarring, but also reduce and reverse the aging process. Swiss Researchers and physicians have patented PSP “Processed Skin Cell Proteins,” the active ingredient exclusively used in Neocutis Skin Care products to produce some of the best results in skin revitalization. It began when researchers and Biologists at the “Laboratoires de Medecine Foetale” at the Medical School of the University Hospital of Lausanne in Switzerland started working with fetal cells back in 1995. They finally discovered the fetal cells could actually repair and revitalize damaged or aged skin cells, and shortly after, they patented the state-of-the-art process. In 2002, experienced business professionals teamed up with the Physicians and Biologists in Switzerland to create Neocutis. They began with a single biopsy of fetal skin tissue and froze it in liquid nitrogen in order to establish a skin cell bank that would sustain and supply the PSP production. In 2004, with the skin cell bank in place and backing of financial investors, Neocutis launched their first product: Neocutis Bio-Restorative Skin Cream in the United States. With success came the growth and creation of Neocutis, Inc. Headquartered in San Francisco, CA, the company continues to push forward and incorporate modern science and technology to bring the best results in the health and beauty field.

 

In mid-2013, it was announced that Merz Pharma Group had entered into a definitive agreement with Neocutis to acquire the company’s cosmetics and physician dispensed skin care business. The acquisition of Neocutis is a move that is hopefully going to strengthen and boost Merz’s market position in the field of aesthetics and reflects the company’s strategy to establish itself as a global leader in the medical and aesthetic dermatology.
