For me getting older is awesome, except for looking older. Getting older, you are wiser and you understand life a whole lot better, than you did when you were twenty years old. The only thing about getting older is you may have more health problems and you may not look as young as you would like to. There are a lot of products to help you look younger, but then you get the problem of which is the right one for you. There are a ton of beauty products out on the market.
About the Skin Actives Vitamin A CreamFor this review I received a one ounce jar of Skin Actives Vitamin A Cream. The cream is odor-less and goes on easy. It may help to some degree and it has many awesome ingredients, but there are also many chemicals in the product. Since it does have the chemicals in the product, it would not be a product that I would choose. Each of the chemicals in the product has a link to what the chemical is and how harmful it is. I would not recommend the Skin Actives Vitamin A Cream, because of these chemicals.
Here are the ingredients:
Distilled Water, Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis) Seed Oil, Lactobacillus/Kelp Ferment Filtrate, Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Sorbitol, Butylene Glycol, Cetyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Stearyl Alcohol, Sesame (Sesamum Indicum) Seed Oil, Sweet Almond (Prunus amygdalus dulcis) Seed Oil, Avocado (Persea gratissima) Oil, Allantoin, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Retinyl Acetate (Vitamin A), Carnosine (L-), Hyaluronic Acid, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Juice (Endosperm), Tetrahydrocurcuminoids (Tetrahydrodiferuloylmethane, Tetrahydrodemethoxydiferuloylmethane, Tetrahydrobisdemethoxydiferuloylmethane), Pomegranate (Punica granatum) Seed Oil, Tocotrienols, Tocopherol (Alpha-D-Tocopherol, Vitamin E), Astaxanthin, Lycopene, Xanthophyll (Lutein), Alpha Lipoic Acid [R-(+)-], Beta Carotene, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4 (Pal-Lys-Ths-Ths-Lys-Ser-OH), Polysorbate 20, Citric Acid, Dimethicone, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Diazolidinyl Urea, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.
Skin Actives tell you that vitamin A is needed by the retina of the eye in the form of a specific metabolite, the light-absorbing molecule retinal. Vitamin A is also crucial for your skin, when oxidized to retinoic acid, it is a growth factor for epithelial cells, where it binds to two different nuclear receptors to control gene transcription.
Retin-A has been found to irritate the skin. Research by Fu et al. (2010) shows that retinyl ester at 0.3% leads to significant improvements in wrinkles, comparable to those obtained by using the prescription medication retinoic acid (Retin-A).
The Vitamin A Cream has sea kelp bioferment and everything it contains, niacinamide, natural active peptides, carnosine, sodium hyaluronate, coconut endosperm, pomegranate seed oil and other oils.
Allantoin will help with skin renewal, and tetrahydrocurcuminoids, astaxanthin, lycopene and others will provide their antioxidant power.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
