Kingsport, TN – New River Naturals is pleased to announce the launch and availability of its new skin care line, SKINTRA™ Cosmeceuticals, consisting of five products that work to cleanse, hydrate, and repair aging skin. The products are currently available for purchase in select locations across Tennessee, and online at In celebration of the launch, three special holiday packages are available on the website at significantly discounted prices.

The AHA Rejuvenating Cleanser is formulated for deep cleansing while gently exfoliating with AHA, BHA, and natural enzymes. This foundational product removes excess cells, surface impurities and makeup to increase the efficiency of natural cell turnover.

The Extra Gentle Hydration Lotion is an oil free, non-comedogenic, fast-absorbing lotion that soothes and moistens the skin. It’s lightweight, long-lasting hydration is great for all skin types, and is hypoallergenic for use by even the most sensitive skins.

RejuvaStem Anti-Aging Serum is a breakthrough, plant-based stem cell formula containing DermCom and is designed to fight the effects of aging skin by stimulating the communication between skin cells. In clinical studies, DermCom demonstrated greatly improved skin firmness as well as increased collagen and elastin contents in the skin. RejuvaStem Serum is SKINTRA’s flagship anti-aging formula.

For those looking specifically to treat the eye area for fine lines, puffiness or dark circles, Intensive Eye Crème makes a great addition to the regimen. It contains select proteins, Vitamins A, E and K, carrot seed and green tea extracts, and shea butter and hemp oil. The Intensive Eye Cream strengthens and thickens skin in the eye area, greatly improving firmness, and provides deep hydration for an anti-aging moisturizer.

The Glycolic Cellular Turnover Treatment is a leave-on, superficial peeling solution for the rejuvenation of sun-damaged and aging skin, helping to minimize the appearance of fine lines. It is excellent to help balance skin tone and color while increasing new cell growth and epidermal cell turnover.

Outside of select retailers, New River Naturals plans to sell direct to consumers via its website and online marketing channels. Contact us for wholesale pricing or if you are interested in promoting the SKINTRA brand on your website.
