Antioxidant-rich formula reduces appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, restores radiance, hydration and improves skin texture

Jamieson Laboratories today announced the launch of the ProVitamina skincare collection, a line of hypoallergenic, parabens-free products designed to reverse the effects of age and stress, and the damaging wear and tear of daily life. The complete line of six ProVitamina products features Vitamin E, a potent antioxidant that reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and gentle, long-lasting protein moisturizers. Numerous clinical studies have shown vitamin E can reduce DNA damage and enhance epidermal hydration while reducing skin roughness.*

“The Jamieson team drew on 85 years of vitamin expertise when formulating the ProVitamina skincare collection, and created a series of products that renew and revitalize the skin’s natural beauty,” says Gary Leong, VP, Scientific and Technical Affairs. “We used only pure, high quality, natural-sourced vitamins and minerals, because your skin deserves the same careful attention as the rest of your body.” 

Our skin is our first line of defense, and every day it’s exposed to environmental pollutants, sun damage and stress that can have an adverse affect on our body and complexion.

“We all want to put our best face forward, but the reality is most of us could use a little help when it comes to improving skin condition,” says Dr. Paul Cohen, Board Certified Dermatologist and Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and member of both the Canadian Dermatological Association and the Toronto Dermatological Society. “Our skin functions and looks its best when it is properly moisturized, and the ProVitamina products are a simple and effective way to nourish and renew our skin’s natural defenses.”

Revolutionary Moisturizing System

All ProVitamina products offer the unique benefit of phytohydration — a combination of pure Vitamin E, protective antioxidants and protein moisturizers — designed to nourish the skin and refresh the complexion. 

The new ProVitamina product line includes:

Fresh Youthful Hydrating Gel-Cream

Includes Venuceane™ — a patented antioxidant from deep-sea micro-organism which is clinically proven to reduce skin aging. Fortified with pro collagen tetra peptides and anti-wrinkle, firming nutrients, it reduces the look of fine lines, helps restore radiance to skin tone, promotes skin elasticity and firmness. Apply day and night on freshly cleansed skin.

Natural Radiance Moisture Lotion

Features MelanoBronze,™ a unique combination of gentle botanical extract and amino acid. The formulation stimulates the skin’s natural pigments to give a healthy glow – without the effects of harsh self-tanning chemicals. This lotion also protects from the drying effects of the sun, provides long-lasting moisture and healthy, radiant complexion.

Retinol Renewal Night Cream

Fortified with anti-wrinkle firming nutrients and a gentle level of Vitamin A that helps stimulate the natural skin renewal process and reduces the signs of aging with regular use. Apply nightly on freshly cleansed skin. 

Moisture-Rich Nourishing Cream

This formula is fortified with 30 000 IU of pure Vitamin E, protein moisturizers and protecting antioxidants that help to improve skin elasticity, suppleness and tone; provide superior hydration and radiant looking skin. Apply day and night on freshly cleansed skin, face and body to combat deep wrinkles and extreme dryness.

100% Pure Vitamin E Oil

This formula contains 28 000 IU to help smooth, protect and improve the look of stressed skin. Apply directly to wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and chapped skin or use after hair removal or post-surgery to speed healing. Apply day and night on freshly cleansed skin.

All formulas are pH-neutral, chemical-free and produced without animal testing. The Jamieson ProVitamina skincare collection is available in the skin care or beauty section of retailers across Canada for suggested retail prices ranging from $12.99 - $19.99.

I have used your Eye Contour Cream for many years and was surprised to see you have taken it off the market. My comment (don't take it away when you seem to have alot of customers who like it.) You have suggested useing Hydrating Gel Cream, but is it safe to use around the eye as the eye cream was, and does it reduce puffy eyes?

Why was the contour eye cream discontinued? I have tried many others and that was the one that actually worked. I have been trying to find it for awhile now and happened to read the above comment to know that it has been discontinued. I sincerely hope you would bring it back.

I have tried the Pro Vitamina E contour eye cream & love it but can no longer find it. It was a great product & wish they would bring it back.

I am currently trying the Jamieson ProvitaminA night cream on my skin. Too soon to tell whether any of my wrinkles are disappearing but it seems to have a gentle exfoliant property to it. There is no odour (which appeals to me cause I can't stand smelly creams). Skin is feeling smooth and moisturized. This is an "I Like it" so far moment.

Some people do not even know where to start. I used to fall in both of those categories at some point, until I started reading some skincare reviews. This is when I learned that I needed to re-learn everything I thought I knew about skin care products.
