      We'd like to salute a hard working group of people.

We get emails and orders from soldiers all over the world. We decided to find organizations that send packages overseas to our troops. There are many! We chose Blue Star Mothers. Maybe you know one. Their organization provides support for active duty personnel (most often their own children), as well as community care and outreach through veterans groups, schools, hospitals and more. They have been organized since 1942.

We began supplying Blue Star Mothers with NOREDOL® to be included in their care packages. So far we have distributed several thousand of individual packages of our cosmetic in their boxes of essentials sent to the troops. This group alone sends out 4000 care packages!

We encourage you to look in your area. There are many groups dedicated to aiding their son's and daughter's in the military. They will tell you what supplies are most needed. Though insignificant compared to what their child is doing for us, you just might make someone's day with your contribution. Just know they have an extra special connection, their child is serving all of us.

Favorite New Quotes:

“I just want to tell you how wonderful your product is. I bought Noredol for my rosacea to tone down the redness primarily. I decided to let my daughter try it for her acne. She loved the way it felt. It cuts down on the “stickiness”. It also helps to moisturize her skin without oil. I have to tell you that within a couple of weeks her skin looked flawless. I am amazed that this product is the only acne product she has used so far that has brought such dramatic results. It’s truly nothing short of amazing! Noredol also helps with my rosacea. I like the non-sticky feel of the product. It’s like a toner and light moisturizer in one that calms my skin and tones down redness. I have never used a product with such quick and dramatic results. Thanks for such a great product!“

“It is the only product that stops the redness and burning pain of rosacea for me. Also, your website has been one of the easiest to place an order on.“

                                    How to keep your skin as young and beautiful as you are

Nobody knows the whole story about aging. What we know is that our genetics, the internal factors, have a lot to do with the way we change as we get older. We also know that the so called extrinsic factors: the environment we live in, the food we eat, and first of all, the sunlight we are exposed to, affect aging of the skin. Therefore, the appearance of skin is a result of the inevitable, chronological aging intertwined with photoaging, the premature aging due to the life-time of cumulative sun ultraviolet radiation. Regardless of some differences, chronological as well as photo-aging can be explained by the same basic mechanism: oxidative stress building up in our body as we get older as well as that generated by sun UV radiation. Oxidative stress can account for most of skin aging symptoms: loss of skin tone and elasticity, increased skin fragility, skin blood vessel weakness, age spots and wrinkles. This is why antioxidants are main components in rejuvenating cosmetics, and rejuvenation works basically by reducing oxidative stress and reversing skin damage already done by the oxidants’ build-up.

Our Rejuvenation Antioxidant Noredol® Gel delivers antioxidants to the skin in our proprietary formula of Noredol® Cosmetics for skin redness, blemishes and flare-ups. Our proprietary antioxidant blend includes the antioxidant action of retinyl acetate enhanced by a well balanced mix of complementary antioxidants: vanillin, ferulate, sorbate and oleyl alcohol. This innovative formulation of Noredol® with a blend of natural antioxidants effectively accelerates the skin’s renewal and improves its appearance beautifully. Retinyl acetate is a retinoid, or derivative of vitamin A, that has a special place in anti-aging cosmetics. Retinoids are natural constituents of skin and a source of skin vitamin A as well as a part of the skin’s antioxidant defense against oxidative stress buildup. In cosmetic applications, retinoids help restore a healthy level of vitamin A in skin exposed to UV sunlight and for that reasons they have been used in prevention of photoaging. Now they have also become leading components in rejuvenating cosmetics as vitamin A depletion is blamed for aging skin appearance. Retinoids rejuvenate skin and make it regain a beautiful appearance because they restore a healthy, youthful balance between degradation and new production of collagen and elastin, two proteins responsible for skin firmness and elasticity. Also, retinoids restore a youthful balance to skin regeneration keeping the skin beautifully fresh and radiant. All this makes retinoids perfect rejuvenating cosmetics for everyday skin care and the best choice for protection against unwanted effects of oxidative stress build up, like in aging and photoaging, or acne and rosacea, the two oxidative skin conditions. Specialists call retinoids ‘cosmeceuticals’ for attenuation of dermal aging ( Bruce, 2008), because they renew skin, making it smooth, firm and supple, and act as effective UV filters while preventing the build up of skin oxidative stress and inflammation.

Retinoids are especially helpful when applied in formulations with other antioxidants. In our Rejuvenation Antioxidant Noredol® Gel, we blend retinyl acetate with a well balanced complement of antioxidants and our proprietary, all-natural aloe vera and odorless garlic extracts of Noredol® Cosmetics. When used daily, it visibly helps skin stressed by age, skin challenged by redness, blemishes like in acne or rosacea, or extreme weather. Rejuvenated skin radiates with good energy and a new appearance as youthfull and beautiful as you are (more information at our home page

Noredol® helps cool down skin with  redness from sun exposure.


"Our Noredol® Cosmetics help me improve appearance of my rosacea skin at the time of flare-ups, and benefits of Noredol® skin care expand so the flare-ups are kept under good control."

Dr. P. Chomczynski


I am like most Americans and love to start my day with a cup of fresh, hot coffee. I treat that morning ritual as a promise for the coming day to be great. When I realized that I have rosacea, very soon I also discovered that coffee is not for me anymore. First, I hoped I might have coffee if only it is not hot, as I found that many sources list hot beverages as rosacea triggers. When I found this information I thought, "Oh! I can drink iced coffee." I soon discovered that it doesn't matter if I drink cold or hot coffee. The results were the same. Two days after drinking either one, red blemishes appeared on my face. Then I tested how much coffee (or rather how little) it takes to trigger my rosacea. Unfortunately, it is very little. Half a cup of coffee every 3-4 days is my limit to stay without rosacea symptoms. Decaffeinated coffees seem to have the same triggering potency as the regular ones. Also, there was no escape to the tea kingdom; green and brown teas, regular or decaffeinated have similar triggering effects on the appearance of my rosacea symptoms. Apparently, caffeine plus certain antioxidants (otherwise healthy) over-activate the human immune system resulting in blemishes and inflamed skin.
When evaluating the caffeine limit your skin will tolerate before triggering your skin problems, remember that it usually takes two days to see the effect after a triggering event. Unfortunately, you also have to put to the test soft drinks, energy drinks, mate beverages, and many more caffeine-containing food products. Your skin will tell you which of them have to be added to the long list of your personal triggers of redness, blemishes, and skin pinching and itching. Our Noredol® Cosmetics help me improve appearance of my rosacea skin at the time of flare-ups, and benefits of Noredol® skin care expand so the flare-ups are kept under good control. If I only don't allow my passion for a good, refreshing cup of coffee to take over the sensible advice from my own skin.

Sincerely yours,

Dr. P. Chomczynski


A message from Jacquelyn:

                                            Our Antioxidant Vitamin C-Calcium-Ginger Blend
                                               complements skin rejuvenation from the inside.


Our antioxidant blend of vitamin C, with the mineral calcium, and ginger, makes a perfect supplement for your skin rejuvenation. Vitamin C, a natural component of skin and its most efficient antioxidant, is an integral part of skin health and appearance. It is one of the nutrients that has been identified as critical in healthy skin, and its deficiency shows as visible changes in skin appearance. Lower intakes of vitamin C are strongly associated with the prevalence of a wrinkled appearance and so called senile dryness of skin, showing in vitamin C deficiency regardless of age. On the other hand, higher intakes of vitamin C are associated with a lower likelihood of aged skin appearance with wrinkles and dryness. These associations are independent of intrinsic factors, like age, race, menopausal status or body mass index as well as extrinsic factors, like sunlight exposure or life style habits, including physical activity or energy intake.

In skin, vitamin C supported by calcium is necessary for synthesis of collagen and healthy collagen turnover. It also supports skin regeneration by which skin is rejuvenated in a process of shedding off the most top skin layer of dull, dead cells and replacing it with a layer of new, young cells. Good collagen and timely renewal of the top skin layer are crucial for skin appearance, and can diminish the most telling signs of aging: wrinkles, skin sagging, skin atrophy, elastosis and telangiectasia. That’s why our Antioxidant Vitamin C-Calcium-Ginger Blend can be a perfect complement for our Rejuvenation Antioxidant Noredol® Gel in your skin rejuvenation. With our rejuvenation gel routine and daily dose of our vitamin C, the skin and stress pill, your skin will get a healthy, renewed, beautiful appearance. Obviously, that radiant, youthful appearance will change the way you see the world around you. With self-esteem and social well-being strong again, you will be a happier person, ready for the challenges and pleasures your life may bring.

 Help your acne skin.   Rejuvenate it.

Why does rejuvenation help acne-stressed skin? Healthy skin rejuvenates naturally all the time, as it sheds dead cells off the top skin layer and lets newly generated cells replace it. This perpetual skin renewal slows down when we age or when it is disturbed by certain skin conditions, e.g. acne. Acne skin shows a predisposition for the dead cells to adhere strongly to the skin and not shed in a timely fashion like in healthy skin. Dead cells attached to the follicular lining sludge up pores and form impacts that develop into visible comedones, with following inflammation leading to papules, pustules and scars. In acne skin care, vitamin A helps generate new cells that do not adhere and sludge the pores. It restores healthy turn-over of maturing skin cells by regulating their differentiation and apoptosis (death), and in consequence facilitates healthy skin renewal.

Vitamin A in high doses has been used to manage of several skin disorders, including acne, however none of it is FDA approved, as high doses of vitamin A supplement are not recommended for toxicity concerns. On the other hand, studies show that skin can be easily loaded with vitamin A by topical application. Derivatives of vitamin A, like retinyl acetate in our gel, are natural preformed vitamin A, and when applied topically, can be absorbed into skin and converted to active vitamin A. While in the skin, vitamin A helps renew acne skin stressed by redness, inflammation and blemishes. Our Rejuvenation Antioxidant Noredol® Gel is an excellent source of vitamin A for everyday care of your irritated, acne stressed skin. It is blended in a well balanced composition of antioxidants with proprietary aloe vera and odorless garlic extracts. This all natural formula promotes skin rejuvenation, prevents oxidative stress build-up, and additionally helps control skin bacterial flora. Results are truly great making acne-stressed skin relaxed, with a healthy, beautiful appearance. Obviously, a rejuvenated appearance also helps renew self-confidence and optimism in life that sometimes is taken away by the stress of suffering with an acne skin appearance.

How much caffeine is in your daily diet?  Your skin may be doing the counting for you.         



If you are like most Americans, caffeine is a part of your everyday routine. We are not alone, as global caffeine consumption has been estimated at 120,000 tons each year. In the U.S., the average person ‘drinks’ 200 mg caffeine a day in a daily cup of coffee. We consume caffeine mostly in coffee (71%), but also in some soft drinks (16%), tea (12%), cocoa, chocolate, and in some drugs: when all is summarized, it comes to almost 400 mg daily per person. We value caffeine because it makes us mentally alert and, as scientists say, more efficient in mental speed-related tasks. It also helps to stay long hours at night without sleep. It reduces fatigue and increases endurance and muscle performance during endurance sports, like running, cycling or exercising. Caffeine, though, is a drug, and we become addicted to it; those who stop using it may suffer quite unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.

If you have a problem skin, you better know how much caffeine is in your diet. It is so important because caffeine can make problem skin miserable, particularly skin with rosacea or acne, triggering redness, itching, and all full blown, unpleasant and stressing symptoms. (Read more in Noredol® News No.11 and in our Face Time issues on Rosacea and Diet and Acne and Diet). Therefore, overly sensitive and reactive skin can put a limit on your caffeine consumption or make you to avoid it completely.

If you are a coffee aficionado, you need to know the limits of caffeine your skin can tolerate. Unfortunately, safe personal limits for caffeine consumption have to be found by trial and error, and you will need patience and reliable information on caffeine in your everyday diet. It is necessary to learn how much caffeine is in a cup of coffee, how much in soft drinks or energy drinks, and what to expect in chocolate and all the scrumptious things that come with coffee or chocolate for richness and taste.

Start your Skin and Caffeine Trial with coffee. Observe your skin appearance and note how much coffee you drink every day. Then make your own calculations using data on average caffeine content in coffees. Basically, different coffees, served as brewed, instant, cappuccino/latte or espresso in 8 or 2 ounce drinks, contain on average 75-85 mg caffeine. Decaffeinated coffees, brewed or instant, have about 3 mg of caffeine.

The same volume of teas, on average, contain half the caffeine found in coffees; decaffeinated teas have caffeine content similar to decaffeinated coffees. However, you need to be aware that the caffeine content in your cup of tea depends on the blend of tea leaves, method of preparation and length of brewing time and can be much different from the average values.

Caffeine content in carbonated beverages, pre-packed national brands or private labels, varies and ranges from 4.9 mg (IGA Cola) to 74 mg (Vault Zero) for 12 oz container. Usually, store brand carbonated beverages contain less caffeine than their national brand counterparts. For example, the Wal-Mart store beverages, Sam’s Cola and Diet Sam’s Cola, contain 12.7 and 13.3 mg caffeine in 12 oz can, respectively. The wide range of caffeine contents in carbonated beverages should be a warning for those who need to control caffeine consumption. When your skin calls for limiting your caffeine, find first the caffeine values for a beverage you are about to enjoy on hot summer days.

In your calculations remember about energy drinks. One can of Red Bull contains 80 mg of caffeine, equivalent to one cup of coffee and double the dose of Coca Cola.

Another source of caffeine are cocoa beverages, though on average their caffeine content is at the level of decaffeinated coffee or tea. A rich caffeine source is dark chocolate which contains 20 mg per 1 ounce.

Do not forget in your calculations about other stimulants containing caffeine, e.g. mate.

Keep detailed notes on your skin appearance and caffeine consumption for the time period you set for your Skin and Caffeine Trial. Draw conclusions from the trial and then decide if your skin lets you have a cup of coffee or tea, a piece of rich chocolate cake or a refreshing soft drink on a hot summer day, or if everything with caffeine is passé for you.

Asafetida plant, a source of ferulic acid.
Ferulic acid chemical formula.           Ferulic Acid



Our new product, Rejuvenation Antioxidant Noredol® Gel, includes ferulic acid, a new and exciting, some say a miraculous, natural antioxidant. It was first isolated by a 19th century Austrian chemist from Ferula assa-foetida L., an unassuming common plant known by the name asafetida in English, but also by the name ‘food of the gods’ in other languages (e.g. in Dutch). A natural product, ferulic acid is found in the leaves and seeds of many plants, and presently is obtained mostly from wheat or maize bran.

Ferulic acid, the phytochemical from the same family as hydrocinnamic acid or curcumin, is a very efficient antioxidant. The extraordinary efficiency results from the fact that ferulic acid’s own antioxidative potency is actually boosted by ultraviolet light (UV). The sun's UV light, when absorbed by ferulic acid, transforms molecule into a stable radical and actually enhances its ability to suppress radiation-induced oxidative damage to the skin. For that reason, ferulic acid is used in anti-aging and rejuvenating cosmetics, as it not only neutralizes the skin’s own oxidants, but its antioxidant action is actually amplified while protecting skin from direct UV sunlight damage. Our skin ages in two ways: naturally (intrinsically) as we are getting older, and extrinsically, mostly as a result of everyday contact with the sun’s UV radiation. Some say that oxidants are the main culprits in both types of aging, and antioxidant protection effectively rejuvenates the skin. Ferulic acid limits UV light induced oxidants, the main cause of the extrinsically induced skin aging. Doing so, it helps fight the signs of skin aging: wrinkles, dark sun spots, and even skin cancers, often a result of oxidative damage to the skin.

Additionally, it was found that the extraordinary properties of ferulic acid provide unmatched antioxidant protection and skin recovery thanks to doubling the benefits of other antioxidants in cosmetic products, e.g. alpha tocopherol (vitamin E). No other antioxidant delivers comparable levels of photoprotection against UV light-induced erythema and stressed skin recovery. More protection means more youthful looking skin and better defense against environmental (extrinsic) aging, and better recovery for age stressed skin and the skin stressed by rosacea or acne, the oxidative stress skin conditions.

The protective antioxidative effect of ferulic acid extends to melanocytes. It effectively quenches the UV-light induced formation of thymine dimmers, a product of cancer-causing mutation in cell DNA and a marker of cancerous changes in skin. That’s why scientists suggest that ferulic acid potentially can reduce the risk of malignant melanoma, the most dangerous skin cancer induced by skin’s overexposure to UV sunlight.

Once absorbed into skin, ferulic acid doesn't wash off and effectively minimizes new damages to the skin, and actually repairs damages that already there. By doing so, it turns the clock back by helping rebuild collagen losses and gives the skin a beautifully youthful and firm appearance.
