Jeunesse Global creates revolutionary Youth Enhancement System

Jeunesse Global is quickly becoming one of the most renowned household names in the global health and beauty industry. Founded in 2009 by inveterate entrepreneurs Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis, Jeunesse Global has grown from a tiny hobby business run out of the couple’s Florida mansion into a billion-dollar international health and beauty powerhouse. Few times in history has there ever been a company that has proven so disruptive to an established industry in so little time.

And the secret behind this tremendous success has been Ray and Lewis ability to spot underserved market niches and to then quickly develop revolutionary products that are both innovative and effective to address those unmet needs. Prior to founding Jeunesse Global, Ray and Lewis had enjoyed phenomenal success in a wide variety of other businesses. They then used those skills in building Jeunesse.

One of the things that helped Ray and Lewis greatly in the early stages of growing the business was the couple’s extensive contacts within the health and beauty industry. Specifically, the couple was able to contact some of the top product-development scientists, including organic chemists, nutritionists and biologists, creating some of the most innovative and effective products that the industry has seen in decades.

The culmination of this work has been the company’s Youth Enhancement System. Designed as a single package of products that meets all the health and beauty needs of consumers, the Youth Enhancement System represents one of the strongest efforts to adapt many of the cutting-edge advancements in anti-aging science of the last three decades into usable products. An example of this is the company’s patented anti-aging molecule. Known as APT-200, the substance has been clinically proven to reduce wrinkles, restore elasticity and promote a vibrant, youthful glow to the skin.

APT-200 can be found in a number of Jeunesse Global products where it serves to compliment the company’s already high-performing skincare products. Other examples of the company’s innovations include its M1nd cognition-enhancing energy drink and its heart-protective Reserve health drink, a product that confers all of the benefits of red wine consumption without any of the risks of alcohol.
