MT Metatron is the authority when it comes to skin anti-ageing, and is trusted by more than 5,000 Japanese doctors and beauty experts for proven anti-ageing products that show results.

MT Metatron founder Masatoshi Nakanishi first came across a skincare ingredient called DMAE, or dimethylaminoethanol, in his previous business importing supplements and cosmetic ingredients from the US to Japan.

The study said that a diet high in DMAE (from say, salmon) could improve memory, protect cells from free radical damage, and improve muscle tone. One could apply the same theory when using DMAE in skincare, its author said.

The concept intrigued Nakanishi and in 2004, he founded MT Metatron in Japan, rolling out its first skincare line, the MT Firming Care Line, featuring DMAE.

The brand has since become the top professional skincare brand in Japan, available exclusively at doctor’s clinics and beauty salons.

It is known for its expertise in skin anti-ageing, using cutting edge scientific research and advanced technology to develop its products. Its promise: formulas that work quickly while being safe for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

Your Skin’s Best Friend: MT Essential Serum

Of course, a successful skincare brand can’t have a star ingredient without a star product. That product is MT Essential Serum, which is built around DMAE.

Studies have shown that topical application of DMAE can improve the firmness and tone of the skin. With its significant anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing properties, it is able to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging while brightening the complexion at the same time.

MT Essential Serum also contains the antioxidant carnosine, which protects skin against free radical damage, as well as collagen and elastin damage. Rounding up the trio is alpha-lipoic acid, an antioxidant-rich enzyme that helps protect skin against photo-ageing. Skin texture is refined, smoother and brighter.

You can even use the serum on the eye area to help reduce the look of crow’s feet.

Users in Japan often rave about the serum, such as this one from a 32-year-old woman: “After using MT Essential Serum for five days, I can see a difference in my face contours, and my cheeks also feel firmer and lifted.”

In fact, the serum is even recommended by aesthetics doctors in Japan as post-treatment home care for Ultherapy and Thermage, to help maintain and prolong the lifting and firming effects of these treatments.

The MT Essential Serum is part of the MT Firming Care Line, which includes MT Essential Lotion, MT Essential Cream, and MT Activate Mask, to meet all your anti-ageing needs.
