  • 28. RegeneMax™ provides ch-OSA® (cholinestabilized orthosilicic acid), that helps naturally nourish your body’s beauty proteins. Regular orthosilicic acid is highly unstable, leading it to form polymers. These polymers are too large for the human body to absorb. But the patented “choline stabilization” technology in RegeneMax prevents the polymers from forming, ensuring optimal absorption. RegeneMax has been formulated with clinically proven ch-OSA for your assurance.
