What is Venox?

Venox is an advanced blend of age-defying ingredients formulated to provide the ultimate skincare experience without cosmetic surgery. Since Venox is infused with Botox®-like SYN-AKE® peptides, it helps reduce muscle cell contractions to promote smoother skin while decreasing the visibility of surface wrinkles. Effective as both a short- and long-term solution, results become more and more apparent with continued use.

SYN®-AKE, a manmade version of viper venom helps to gently relax facial muscles and ultimately diminish the appearance of even deeper lines and wrinkles, while helping to prevent knew creases from forming. This effect is similar to Botox®, but without the potential side effects, pain, or bank account drainage.

Other ingredients help mimic the effects of collagen injections and other dermal fillers. SYN®-TC is formulated to help increase the formation of stable, healthy collagen that can help beautify and support skin for a firmer, more youthful look and feel. SYN®-TC even contains Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, a peptide whose collagen-stimulating abilities are so powerful, they can help contribute to a “filler effect” that could replace injectable fillers.

How does Venox work?

Much like Botox®, Venox smoothes skin by hindering the muscle contractions that create lines and creases – without the injection. Four powerful ingredients make this possible:

  • SYN-AKE®, a synthetic snake venom that inhibits wrinkle-causing muscle contractions while increasing skin elasticity;
  • Aloe Leaf Extract, which contains several antioxidants that help replenish aging skin’s moisture and improve its natural firmness;
  • Palmitoyl Peptides which aid in activating the synthesis of skin-plumping collagen;
  • Extracts from the Ginkgo Biloba Tree which contain antioxidants that help slow down the aging process by protecting against free radicals.

But SYN-AKE® isn’t the only reason Venox is an excellent anti-aging product. Venox combines the strongest anti-aging and skin-protecting ingredients available to deliver maximum results. These peptides and compounds work together to create a visible result that is dramatically superior to using any of its ingredients individually. In addition, since the advanced technology in Venox helps to boost collagen levels, fill in wrinkles, and improve skin elasticity over the long term, these dramatic results will last instead of fading at the end of the day like less advanced products.


Pesky ingrown Bikini hair keeping you off the beach? emerginC to the rescue!

July 8, 2014

We all have them, those pesky ingrown hairs that come along with shaving and waxing.  Stop them before they start with these tips and tricks from Kimberly Sampson, National Training Director for emerginC.

  1. Exfoliate skin 1-2 days prior to shaving or waxing. Exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells, oil and debris that may get trapped into hair follicles.
  2. Shave in the direction of hair growth.
  3. Apply soothing aloe, botanical oils and/or tea extracts to skin after shaving, waxing to help prevent skin irritation and ingrowns.
  4. Natural and organic antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredients such as tea tree help prevent ingrown hairs and razor bumps. Apply products with tea tree oil 1-3 days after shaving/waxing to prevent ingrown hairs.

She also recommends the following products from the emerginC line for preventing ingrown hairs:
