Surrean™ Youth Serum

Negative elements like over exposure to the sun's UV light, chemicals found in our food, and pollution in the air can all generate free radicals that negatively influence the quality of our skin. Scientists say that this permanent damage - known as photo aging - accounts for 90% of the skin's perceived aging, which includes wrinkles, roughness, pigmentation and loss of elasticity. 

​Surrean™ Youth Serum uses our patented signal molecules to promote the natural growth, organization and maintenance of your own skin cells. Our product contains high-purity human fibroblast signal proteins - which are genetically similar to the signal molecules that are naturally made by the body. As we age, the production of these growth factors decreases, resulting in the inability of the skin to rejuvenate. Supplementing the skin with the Surrean™ Youth Serum can help the skin naturally rejuvenate itself, returning the skin to its youthful state.

Surrean™ Benefits

  • Effectively decreases wrinkles and fine lines

  • Improves the appearance of skin texture

  • Unique signal molecules target skin cells

  • Natural skin rejuvenation, and helps to build collagen naturally

  • Helps fade sun damage / age spots

  • Accelerates our skin renewal factor as though we are in our 20’s-30’s

Surrean Youth Serum contains high concentrations of multiple peptides and signaling molecules that are found in healthy young skin as well as several plant-based ingredients that support the repair of DNA damage. Skin signal molecules are natural proteins abundant in young skin that are important for optimum skin health. They are involved in cell turnover and generation, collagen production, and elastin production. These functions help keep skin taut, firm, and smooth. As skin ages and/or suffers photo damage from sun exposure, it produces fewer signal molecules.

How to Choose a Signal Peptide Product like Surrean™

Signaling peptides (oligopeptides) are the cutting edge in anti-aging and rejuvenating skincare! Oligopeptides are a group of specialized proteins with many functions, the most important being the activation of cellular proliferation and differentiation – in other words, repair. Here is some information to help you make an informed decision in choosing the right oligopeptide products.


1. Do I need to be careful when choosing oligopeptide products?

Yes! Oligopeptides are very specialized proteins (polypeptides) and require a high level of technology for production. In recent years, several cosmetic companies are learning the benefits of advertising peptides and are capitalizing on their forward trend. As a result, they are mixing random peptides in their product to support the claim of having oligopeptides. Their peptides yield zero benefits to the skin and may even lead to damaged or irritated skin, as the random peptides can catalyze microbial activities on the skin surface causing unwanted breakouts and even scarring. Avoid suppliers with bad practices that will deliver a mediocre product that does not deliver results.


Ask your suppliers about the following variables:

  1. The type of cells used: Fibroblast cells are best as the source for the oligopeptides. 
  2. Media collection method: Should use a natural pH and no detergents and take measures to prevent protein breakdown (denaturing).

  3. The cells or conditioned media should come from within the U.S. as they are tested for bacteria, viruses, and other infectious diseases.

  4. Choose an FDA-licensed facility


2. What are the benefits of oligopeptide?

Oligopeptides have the ability to turn essential cellular activities “on” and “off”. They play a role in increasing cell functions, which include, cell division, blood vessel formation, and collagen and elastin production. The application of oligopeptide technology to skincare is helping to achieve a more youthful and vibrant look without plastic surgery or expensive cosmetic procedures. 


3. Do stem cells produce oligopeptides?

There are no scientific publications supporting the claim that stem cells in formulations produce oligopeptides beneficial to the skin. The inaccurate promotion of “stem cells” in cosmetic products is largely a marketing strategy used by cosmetic companies to create a “buzz” as stem cells are the “big thing” in medicine.


4. Where do Signal Peptides come from?

The best source of oligopeptides for skin is fibroblast stem cells. This finding has been supported by numerous scientific publications, and is considered the key cells in wound healing.


5. Do plants produce Signal Peptides?

Yes and No. Plants produce oligopeptides conducive to their biological functions and are a completely different organism as their biology is obviously far different from humans. More specifically, our cellular biological activities are different, including the way we repair cellular damage. Therefore, any Plant peptides do not work on humans and any claims made by other cosmetic companies are just marketing ploys aimed at uninformed consumers.

Oligopeptides are very specific peptides (proteins) that emit biological signals involved in the regulation of cell growth and


For Example: TGF-b is a potent stimulator of collagen production, promotes the synthesis of extracellular matrix proteins called glycosaminoglycan's (GAG’s), and inhibits extracellular matrix degradation (thinning of your skin).1,2,3


Cytokines are associated with immune system cells and play a key role in the modulation of inflammation.


​For example, PDGF (Platelet-derived growth factors) and GM-CSF (Granulocyte-Macrophage Colony-Stimulating Factor), can stimulate extracellular matrix production, reduce inflammation, and promote the formation of new blood vessels.1,3
