Glutathione: The Secret Behind Auro Skincare

October 26, 2022

The Auro GSH™ Antioxidant Delivery System, a patented, first-of-its-kind technology, optimizes antioxidant absorption for transformative skin repair

Every day, the skin is attacked by oxidative stressors – also known as free radical damage – like UVA and UVB sun rays, pollution, and severe weather, to name a few. Glutathione (GSH), often referred to as the “Master Antioxidant,” is a naturally occurring tri-peptide amino acid that is produced in every cell of our bodies and recycles all other antioxidants to provide maximum detoxification of, and protection from, free-radical damage. Unfortunately, as we age, we stop producing enough Glutathione to sustain adequate levels.
 

Before now, it has not been possible to deliver such high doses of Glutathione, or other antioxidants, to skin in a way that was absorbable for maximum benefits. The Auro GSH™ Antioxidant Delivery System, discovered and developed by pharmacist and Auro founder Dr. Nayan Patel, is a patented, first-of-its-kind solution to this challenge.  Powered by sub-nano technology, it delivers antioxidants, like Glutathione, Vitamin C, Resveratrol, and more, to the skin in a more potent way than ever before. Auro Skincare’s four new products launching this month harness this technology to help users improve the look of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, dullness, dehydration, uneven tone, and texture.

 AURO skincare is paving the way with a protocol of ultra-potent antioxidant formulas powered by the patented, first-of-its-kind Auro GSH™ Antioxidant Delivery System.

I just started my regime, and I’m already INTO IT. First off, this isn’t your mama’s skincare. AURO is the real deal – think sulfur smells and ingredients that mean business. Which of course, I love.

“Glutathione, the Master Antioxidant, is vital and essential for defending skin from the aging effects of oxidative damage caused by environmental stress. The patented, first-of-its kind Auro GSH™ Antioxidant Delivery System, developed by pharmacist and Auro founder Dr. Nayan Patel, provides skin with Glutathione, and other antioxidants like Vitamin C and Resveratrol, in a deeper way than ever before.”

     

The Four New Products:

 

G – Antioxidant Revitalization Serum

  • A groundbreaking high-potency antioxidant serum to transform and strengthen skin.
  • Powered by Glutathione, the Master Antioxidant, to dramatically help improve the look of both early and advanced signs of aging.
  • MSRP: $179

 

Citrine – Vitamin C Radiance Complex

The 28th edition will include a wide variety of exhibitions from Europe, Japan, North America, Latin America and South Korea, plus events and performances. Returning for 2023, the fair’s signature curated program DIVERSEartLA, a cultural anchor for the LA Art Show and the only educational project of its kind in the United States, will continue its curatorial focus on the global climate crisis.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® returns as the charitable partner with the LA Art Show donating 15% of all ticket proceeds to its life saving mission.

“One of the most powerful things about art is that it brings people together, and ignites transformative conversations about what it means to be human, which feels particularly relevant in a world that’s forever shifting,” says LA Art Show producer and director Kassandra Voyagis. “At the LA Art Show this year, we are thrilled to have a larger international presence than ever, ensuring conversations are expansive and inclusive, nuanced and bold.”

The LA Art Show is an unparalleled international art experience with over 100 galleries, museums and nonprofit arts organizations exhibiting painting, sculpture, works on paper, installation, photography, design, video and performance with all works available for purchase.

For the first time, there will also be over 10 galleries from South Korea, including LP Gallery, a contemporary art gallery from Seoul, and JJ Art Korea.

The hugely popular DIVERSEartLA, which began in 2015 and is curated by Marisa Caichiolo, returns for 2023 with an ambitious program, bringing together some of the most important local and international art institutions, museums and nonprofit organizations for elevated and thoughtful dialogue. Expanding on last year’s theme, DIVERSEartLA will address the impact of climate change through a variety of installations, immersive experiences, and performances.

“The ethnic backgrounds of the people in Los Angeles are varied and vast, just like its natural environments,” says DIVERSEartLA curator Marisa Caichiolo. “To honor this unique biodiversity, we’ll continue our curatorial focus on diversity and inclusion—both within human communities, and in global ecosystems. We’ll encourage visitors to confront the complex challenges of our global climate crisis and also to imagine solutions. 

Since 2015, the LA Art Show has been a strong and unwavering supporter of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® as it leads the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. In 2023, the LA Art Show is donating 15% of all ticket proceeds to St. Jude and its life saving mission. The LA Art Show is proud to bring together St. Jude and the art community. 

Owners of the LA Art Show, Scott Diament and Rob Samuels of the Palm Beach Show Group, have recently acquired Art Palm Beach, which will be presented under the innovative leadership of LA Art Show producer and director Kassandra Voyagis, marrying the two fairs in a dynamic state-of-the-art bicoastal enterprise.

THIS CAN SAVE YOUR DOGS LIFE AND YOU NEED IT RIGHT NOW

October 15, 2022

If you own a dog in Los Angeles, then you’ve probably heard and read a ton of harrowing stories about coyotes snatching dogs from backyards, attacking them on residential streets, and stalking pups on hikes. It’s out of control. I see coyotes daily, on the sidewalks in the city – they have come down from the mountains into residential neighborhoods and are utterly fearless. They can jump and scale up to around 16 feet, right up and our fences.

I have grown so terrified that I get anxious when Lolo wants to hang out and play in my yard. I used to let her hang out there all day, but now, after two friends losing their animals – a god and a cat, to coyote attacks, I don’t even let her out.

A friend sent me a link to Coyote Vest and I truly lost my mind with the genius of this product. I thought to myself – I need EVERYONE TO GET ONE!  The vest and collar are literally saving our dog lives. It doesn’t hurt that the vision of a pup in one of these is the most punk rock bad-ass coolness I have ever seen. I literally can’t get over the cutness.

I keep the Coyote Collar on hand, everywhere. By my back door for when Lolo goes out to pee outside. The collar and vest is for dog walks and hikes. I am obsessed.

Check our more about this most genius invention below – and please enjoy these delightful photos I pulled from their website. If you’re looking for the absolute perfect gift for a doggie parent – look no further. The collar is a no-brainer and a great piece too, at $20. How about this for a doggie stocking stuffer!

DESIGNED TO PROTECT

Are you concerned for the safety of your dog? It’s a dangerous world where coyotes, aggressive dogs, and even birds of prey can injure or kill your small dog in the blink of an eye. We know because it happened to us, and that’s why we developed our patented CoyoteVest. Its purpose is to help slow down or prevent a surprise attack and give you enough time to react before a serious injury occurs. The CoyoteVest gives us peace of mind knowing that our dogs are not utterly defenseless.

While nothing can protect your dog completely, the CoyoteVest offers multiple levels of protection that can help. The unusual appearance makes your dog look strange in the eyes of a predator and may cause them to hesitate before attacking. If they do attack, a formidable array of shiny spikes defends the back and the neck – which is where most injuries occur – and the vest is made with stab-resistant materials that can withstand sharp canine teeth.

ENDORSED BY VETERINARIANS

Veterinarians around the world endorse and use the CoyoteVest for their own dogs.

LIGHTWEIGHT AND COMFORTABLE

The CoyoteVest doesn’t slow your dog down or impair their ability to run and play. It’s easy to take on and off.

STYLISH AND BRIGHT COLORS

The CoyoteVest is available in yellow, red, pink, blue, tan, turquoise or safety orange. We make protection look good.

OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES

The highly visible CoyoteWhiskers and the sturdy HawkShield help protect against dangerous predators.

CoyoteVest

The original stab-resistant CoyoteVest that attaches with straps and snap buckles.

SpikeVest

All-around stab-resistant protection  that attaches with with wide velcro flaps.

CoyoteWhiskers

Bright nylon bristles on the back of the vest can make predators hesitate.

Hawkshield

Stab-resistant shield protects against sharp talons and provides a chance to escape.
