AminoGenesis is a skin care formulation created by a team of advanced medical and scientific researchers. It is based on the powers of amino acids which are the essential components of all living things.

When applied topically, amino acids can dramatically improve the appearance of aging skin, helping to smooth visible lines and stimulate collagen and elastin synthesis. Individuals have even reported that topical usage has helped with skin conditions such as dermatitis, rosacea, acne and eczema. Amino acids create the core of two of the most advanced AminoGenesis products available: Tripeptinon and Photolagen-AGF.

This is miracle cream - 4/4/2012 8:12:50 PM I have gotten numerous compliments since I started using this eye cream. It feels great, not greasy or heavy. A little goes a long way too. My eyes have never looked better, very bright and awake. The price is great too. The only draw back is you are not supposed to use it on your eye lids or upper eye area so you need a separate cream for that area.

Excellent cleanser for sensitive problem skin - 6/18/2011 4:52:06 PM At last I found a substitute for the discontinued Lancome Ablutia line I used for decades. Most cleansers I have tried are either too drying for my problem skin, or they leave a film, or don't rinse off, or simply don't clean well.

Works - 10/10/2010 7:00:09 PM My face seemed to be moving, esp in sleep. As in, the side I slept on was all too obvious in the morning. Using a capsule first, every night for 30 days restored its strenght.

Ultimate Luxury - 5/24/2009 6:08:47 PM After I twist and spread it on, I just want to go to bed with it. Plenty of product, enough for the face, neck, decollete, hand, and rest go to my upper body.
Pros: lightweight Cons: no results

what a waste of money - 4/20/2009 9:25:42 PM After using this product for 40 days and exactly as directed, I saw absolutely no results at all! I am so frustrated because I spend almost $80.00 on a product that does not do what it just as if I put my money directly into the trash can...

question the cost - 3/4/2009 8:00:55 PM This product does leave the skin looking nice the next morning, but NOT WRINKLE FREE. After using the product properly on a regular basis, I saw no changes in the small lines or crows feet on my face. I expected better results, because PHOTOLAGEN works so well on my skin. I'm sticking with Aminogenesis' Photolagen. Would not recommend this product due to the results & its cost.

Great for Sensitive Skin - 10/15/2008 9:44:59 AM I was happily surpised by how well this product works. I have tried many other products that made my skin break out, but not this one. I am fair with freckles and it is working beautifully. I am pleased by how it goes on and penetrates my skin so I can put my makeup on right away. I am older, but this one puts a younger smile on my face!

Perfect! - 10/7/2008 8:25:38 AM This is the first cleanser I've used that I actually love. It deep cleans & leaves my normal-combo skin perfectly moisture balanced & soft. I have skin that's easily irritated, & this is very gentle. I only need to use a tiny amount of this at a time, so it's pretty cost effective. This is the perfect cleanser!

Pep up my Skin!!! - 7/2/2008 2:24:01 PM WOW! talk about super peptide goodness! My skin was horrible before using Photolagen! It has been about 3 months now, and I can't believe the difference. I still can't believe how much dead skin peeled away. It was actually scary at first, but the results were worth it! My skin looks amazing! Tighter, & more toned. There is a glow that wasn't there before! Even my pores aren't as noticeable. I am a convert!

Wonderful! - 5/22/2008 8:04:30 AM I am 40 and for as long as I can remember I have had dry, sensitive, flaky skin, prone to breakouts and allergic reactions. This cream is amazing. My skin is glowing, smooth and not a bit of redness or irritation in sight. What is more, it doesn't cause breakouts! I can apply as much as I like and it absorbs easily, leaving my skin silky soft.

AminoGenesis Products


This full-strength serum goes right to the heart of aging skin by focusing on the skin’s support system—the connective tissues. When these tissues break down, the skin begins to sag and lose elasticity. This serum will help to strengthen and lift the connective tissues, leaving the skin firmer and plumper.

This serum works in a unique way. After penetrating the uppermost layers of the skin, Tripeptinon undergoes hydrolysis, separating the fatty acids so they can be used to strengthen the skin’s support structures. Next, Tripeptinon organizes itself into bi-layers to contain moisture within the skin. Finally, amino acids bind with water to maximize the skin’s hydration levels.

Customer satisfaction across the web is high. Users state that their skin is much softer, the texture improved quickly and that one ampoule has a generous amount of product for full coverage of the face, neck, décolleté and back of hands. Most agree that it must be used first on clean dry skin so the serum penetrates efficiently.


Photolagen-AGF combines 17 proprietary amino acids with reparative peptides to repair photo-damaged skin, and can dramatically improve the look of sun spots, deep wrinkles and discoloration.

The pentapeptide contained in this Photolagen AGF serum – called Matryxl – generates a powerful repair response in the skin. Clinical trials have shown this ingredient to be superior to retinoids, glycolic acid and alpha hydroxy acids, without the negative side effects. It also provides the skin with hydrating humectants and beneficial nutrients chosen for their healing benefits. Individuals of all skin types can use this serum to smooth wrinkles, reduce discoloration, improve hydration levels and achieve an overall improvement in the skin’s tone and texture.

There is a general consensus among users that Photolagen-AGF has effectively improved their skin with “no break-outs” and has a nice fluidity which enhances application, coverage and feels silky soft.
