MC 2 Beauty - Future of Canadian Cosmetics
MC2 provides anti aging solutions for your complete optimum health. The skin is our largest organ and the accumulative process of aging starts from birth. Aging affects the structure, function and appearance of the skin which is the reduction in elasticity and viscoelastic properties of the skin. The natural biological progression of aging occurs over a lifetime and is also a result of environmental exposure. With the daily use of MC2 skin solutions, skin begins to destabilize the intrinsic and extrinsic processes of aging and proactively heal the skin.
Cosmetics were originally designed and marketed as formulations that temporarily enhance the appearance of the skin hair or nails. MC2Tech division is a hybrid industry that has emerged in the demand for health solutions that bear transformational benefits and clearly exhibit clinical effects beyond the effects of mere hydration or illumination. The resulting MC2Tech client demand is now growing at an astonishing rate and now designing solutions for the cosmetic, fashion and food industries.
