Developed on earth, tested in space - NASA's anti-aging patent
Technology Applications International Corporation (NUUU) has concluded a clinical study to test the efficacy of anti-aging products, developed on earth and tested in space by NASA.

After NUUU's subsidiary ‘Renuell Int'l’ signed an exclusive licensing agreement with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to develop cosmetics and hair care products, the brand has carried out its’ own clinical studies before submitting the testing claims to the FDA.

"In addition to our original agreement, we now have exclusive usage rights, for cosmetics and hair care products, of an electromagnetic field (EMF) rotating-walled (RW) bioreactor. The results were outstanding. 100% of the participants showed real and noticeable facial skin improvements,”​ says CEO Charles J. Scimeca. 

The Rejuvel skin care line has been developed using a NASA bioreactor to expand plant and mammalian cells in a three-dimensional state. The anti-aging products are created in simulated microgravity to create high quality skin care products that promote the body’s own healing mechanisms.

The range offsets the effects of time by stimulating fibroblast cells that offer unparalleled skin rejuvenation benefits that effectively promote dermal cell activity.

By tightening the dermal connective tissue, skin will regain its firmness and significantly reduce wrinkle depth as well as increasing skin moisture content and skin tone balancing to give you a more youthful appearance.

The agreement covers two additional U.S. patents, No. 6,485,963 B1 and No. 6,673,597 B2; and is entitled "Growth Stimulation of Biological Cells and Tissue by Electromagnetic Fields and Uses Thereof."

All products are ‘Space Certified’ and recognized by the Space Foundation as technology that has been developed in outer space and the Space Foundation Seal will appear on all of NUUU's products.

NASA's work with the cosmetics industry 

Biotechnology company Regenetech opened discussions with lifestyle firm Aristocrat Group Corp (ASCC) to develop a line of anti-aging skin care products from stem cells also using NASA's bioreactor technology.

Using equipment originally created for the space program, Regenetech is developing a line of cosmetic products with biomolecules that are produced in a weightless environment.

The active ingredients in the cream are biomolecules left behind after stem cell expansion, including cytokines, peptides and proteins capable of promoting healthy skin.
