Prevage Body Total Transforming Anti Aging Moisturizer
This lotion, sold by Elizabeth Arden in department stores, claims to reduce signs of aging, but is not just a face cream. It is designed to be used as an all-over moisturizer, which reduces wrinkles on the face, but reduces age spots and sagging skin in general. Claiming to use a Tripeptide Complex , it reduces the appearance of sun damage, relieves try skin, increase firmness and elasticity, and improves the texture of the skin, adding smoothness. We know that peptides stimulate collagen production, but we are interested in seeing what other ingredients are found in this product and if there are enough peptides to be effective.
This product contains many emollients and moisturizing ingredients, but only one peptide. It also contains butylparaben, ethylparaben, isobutylparaben, methylparaben, and propylparaben.
This product will probably be an effective moisturizer, since it contains many proven ingredients. It also contains a peptide and guanidine HCl, which makes the peptide more soluble – more easily absorbed into the skin.
This product contains five parabens, which are ingredients found in cheap cosmetics. They are known to cause irritation to the skin and have even been found to cause more serious problems, such as cancer. Though these allegations are largely unproven, parabens are ineffective at best, meaning that you are paying $135 for a product that contains chiefly useless ingredients.
If you are looking for an effective moisturizer, you might find that Prevage Body Total Transforming Anti Aging Moisturizer is effective. However, we would not recommend this product. You can find an equally effective moisturizer for a fraction of the cost. The only reason this cream would be first the price would be if it reduced wrinkles and age lines, but we see no evidence that this will function as an anti-aging treatment. You can find a peptide serum that will be more concentrated and truly effective.
