Would you try to fix your television without knowing anything about televisions? In the best of the cases, you will simply make it unusable. In the worst, you will die by electrocution!
And yet, people feel free to play with the skin of others, like in this silly product. No, you can’t sculpt your face.
Yes, you can increase elasticity, improve hydration, rejuvenate your skin with actives such as Vitamin A, epidermal growth factor, essential fatty acids and more. But, what’s the fun in doing the right thing? Actually, at Skin Actives we do have fun while doing the right thing. Maybe other companies could try it?
So, what do they do? Let’s give the skin extra fluorine, extra copper, and maybe hope that some green tea, glycerin and fish egg puree will help reverse the bad effects of these metals on the skin.
Ah! By the way, choose some fancy names for the fluorine peptides (Progeline), Easyliance for the thickening gums, and Idealyft for the dipeptide of unknown composition). The good thing about this dipeptide is that it is unlikely to age your skin (as the copper gluconate will).
Here is the ingredient list:
Water, Butylene Glycol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Isononyl Isononanoate, Glyceryl Stearate, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Acacia Senegal Gum, Cyclopentasiloxane, Behenyl Alcohol, Pentylene Glycol, Caviar Extract 2, Hydrolyzed Silk, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Mayweed) Extract, Oat Kernel Extract, Allantoin, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Extract, Comfrey Leaves Extract, Trifluoroacetyl Tripeptide-2, Soy Isoflavones, Hydrolyzed Rhizobian Gum, Glycerin, Tocopherol, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Phenoxyethanol, Dimethiconol, Alcohol, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Hydroxyacetophenone, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Polysorbate 80, Sorbitan Laurate, Lecithin, Guar Gum, Xanthan Gum, Ethylhexylglycerin, Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate, Glyceryl Polyacrylate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Acetyl Dipeptide-1 Cetyl Ester, PVM/MA Copolymer, Dextran, Magnesium Aspartate, Zinc Gluconate, Copper Gluconate, Fragrance.
I know that we are living in stressful times (when was life not stressful?) but if you wish to be nice to yourself and your skin, please choose a skin care product that makes sense. And please, remember that a peptide can do good or bad depending on its sequence (composition). Don’t buy “peptide creams” just because.
