I have left both my youth and the humidity of Hawaii behind. These days my skin feels one size to small. Not only that. I have spots around my eyes that pretty much look and feel like alligator skin. I need some decent skin care products. Does anybody have anything in mind?
I have been looking at cosmeceuticals, or cosmetics with active pharmaceutical ingredients. One cosmeceutical company that caught my eye was Dermajuv because they have done laboratory studies to gauge the success of their products, and because they offer a 30 day money back guarantee. Try the product for 30 days and if it doesn’t work, return it for a refund.
I started looking at cosmeceuticals with a great deal of skepticism. Medical cosmetics. Was that just a fancy claim, or is there some weight behind the term? According to Wikipedia, the name has validity and is a marketing ploy — it is up to the consumer to judge the companies that lay claim to the word.
Since Dermajuv offers a 30 day money back guarantee, I know they believe in their products. Moreover, Dermajuv is willing to describe and explain their product ingredients in detail. In fact, they have dedicated an entire section of their website solely for the purpose of showcasing their cosmeceuticals. You can even view PDFs of the clinical study results.
From the Dermajuv website:
Is Matrixyl (palmitoyl pentapeptide-3) an effective anti wrinkle product?
Yes. In clinical studies, Matrixyl was shown to:
increase overall collagen synthesis by up to 117%
increase collagen IV synthesis by up to 327%
increase hyaluronic acid synthesis by up to 267%
Deep wrinkles were reduced by half. Smaller wrinkles and fine lines sometimes faded completely away. And what’s even better, every participant in the study showed noticeable improvement within two weeks. The result was fewer wrinkles and younger-looking skin.
