The NEW science of patented skincare formula

There are more and more skincare products in the market making claims about how their products are special and different. However, did you know that a skincare formula can be based on NEW skin science? And that new science is a unique way to get softer, smoother skin. 

The science behind CLEARISTA®  is new, different, and a better way to treat your skin.  CLEARISTA’s science was even granted a patent by the US patent office. 


What is a patent?

According to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), “A patent is an exclusive right granted for an invention, which is a product or a process that provides, in general, a new way of doing something, or offers a new technical solution to a problem.”


Can a skincare formula be patented?

The answer is YES, skincare formulas can be patented but they have to meet the requirements set by the patent office to be eligible for a patent. 

The patented formula must be NEW. They must be backed up with PROOF.  And they must WORK in a new and different way. 


Why is the scientific patented skincare formula special?

In order to be patented, the formula must be:

  • Completely original
  • Not already in the use of someone else
  • Not patented before by someone else 
  • Fulfills its purpose
  • Must be useful
  • Must contain patentable subject matter, which also means it must be something that the patent office would grant a patent for.
  • Must be nonobvious; it has to be something that a person familiar within the field of skincare would not find to be obvious

CLEARISTA’s formula has met these scientific requirements.  It was issued a patent by the U.S. patent office.Nothing softens and smooths your skin like CLEARISTA®!


CLEARISTA’s Patented Skincare Formula 

Clearista’s patented formula was first developed by renowned, award-winning scientists Samir Mitragotri (Professor, Harvard University), Robert Langer (Department of Chemical Engineering, MIT), and Dr. Russ Lebovitz (M.D., Ph.D. Washington University). 

They were working on their research on how to preserve and analyze skin cells that had been shed. They discovered a scientific breakthrough, the formula they were using to preserve discarded skin cells was applied directly to the skin and EUREKA! It was found to soften and smooth the outermost layers of skin. 

They soon realized that this patented idea works on the skin’s surface without damaging deeper layers. It does not dry out your skin like cleansers.  It does not coat the skin with oils like most moisturizers. It uniquely softens and smooths skin. 

After years of work and testing, their work successfully shows that CLEARISTA® is able to effectively aid in the skin’s natural renewal process and reduce the appearance of rough patches, skin bumps (e.g. keratosis pilaris), surface blemishes, and pigmented surface spots. It also soothes itches, irritations, rashes, and other common skin problems.
