B. Kamins Nia-Stem Serum Kx Review

B. Kamins Nia-Stem Serum Kx is a brilliant restorative serum that was created in order to improve "the tone and texture of the skin minimizing the appearance of age and sun damage. Algae extract, rich in omega 3 fatty acids, reduces fine lines and wrinkles while preventing dryness. Rice bran extract brightens the skin and shields it from harmful sun rays."
Nia-Stem Serum Kx is "the perfect skincare treatment program to reverse and protect from the signs of age and sun damage. All skin types, all ages."

This is a heavy hitting anti-aging product that utilizes cutting-edge technology and the highest quality ingredients to fight fine lines, wrinkles and sun damage. It adds radiance to dull aging skin, but likewise improves the texture of the skin, and is recommended for all ages and skin types. I noted that my combination skin immediately appeared more radiant, and my face had a healthy glow from within. While I do not have deep wrinkles, I do have some expression lines that are notably diminished from this magic potion. There is an evenness of tone, and an undeniable clarity as a result of regular use, and I definitely really see a difference in the quality of my skin. Lately, I am continually hearing that I have gorgeous and radiant skin (from non-beauty professionals, to Makeup Artists, to Aestheticians), and I in part attribute it to this serum.

This advanced, anti-aging serum helps to reduce skin reactivity and restore clarity for a brighter, more even-toned complexion. The unique combination of ingredients including niacin, plant stem cells and our exclusive Bio-Maple Compound minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and age spots.

Reduce the appearance of age/dark spots for brighter more even-tone. Revitalize the appearance of sun damaged skin. Restore healthier, younger looking skin.

• Niacin and plant stem cell stimulate cell metabolism.
• Initiates repair and reduces skin reactivity.
• Detoxifies the skin cells to exude bright, even-toned, young-looking skin.

According to B. Kamins, "Plant stem cells are also all the rage right now in actives, judging from the rash of recent skin care launches. B. Kamins skin care, Pointe Claire, Canada, company utilizes heartleaf globe daisy plant stem cells in its new Nia-Stem anti-aging products."

Applying 2% plant stem cells to the face will reduce reactivity and increase skin transparency, said Liga Upeslacis, an R&D specialist with the company. Skin will be less blotchy, less inflamed and less red. Glycation byproducts are removed to increase the amount of light that can pass through the skin. She explained that the primary mechanism of action is hormesis: providing controlled, low-level stress to the skin to stimulate a healthy response, so that the defense system is better prepared for the next, unplanned, external attack. Ensuring healthy cells and a strong skin barrier is the other half of the Nia-Stem name: niacin at 5%, added Upeslacis. Proven and used for decades in dermatology, niacin repairs stratum corneum integrity for a stronger outer layer and the results are increased hydration, reduced TEWL and beautiful skin. Plus, niacin at 5% is proven to reduce sun spots and pigment deposits in the skin, by inhibiting melanosome transfer, and is gaining a reputation for its protective role in sun damage, she explained.

The new Nia-Stem products—which range from an eye serum to moisturizer—contain B. Kamins’ trademark Bio- Maple compound, a naturally-occuring maple resin, with AHAs to exfoliate and sugars that will attract water to the skin’s surface.
Apply to cleansed face and neck. Avoid contact with eyes.

Ingredients: Acer Saccharum (maple Isolate / Isolat Derable), Glycerin, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Aqua/water/eau, Dimethylacrylamide/acrylic Acid/polystyrene Ethyl Methacrylate Copolymer, Oryza Sativa (rice) Bran Extract, Niacinamide, Oligopeptide-4, Sorbitol, Algae Extract, Globularia Cordifolia Ferment, Carbomer, Sodium Hydroxyde, Citric Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Methylisothiazolinone, Phenethyl Alcohol, PPG-2-methyl Ether.

  1. Interesting combination of ingredients...did you see any change in the appearance of your pores?

    1. Hi Kristie!

      It's hard to say whether it has impacted the appearance of my pores- because my pores have been generally looking quite good. I suspect that it is from a combination of products that I have been using lately, but it is entirely possible that this serum is contributing. However I also use retinol at night, and use scrubs and masks as well. I think that the combination of treatments is probably the key with respect to the appearance of my pores, but they definitely are not looking congested. I will pay closer attention to my pores over the next week, and if I notice any changes with respect to this serum- I will let you know. :-)
