Does Your Wrinkle Cream Really Work?

The FDA says, no, that skin cream cannot repair DNA damage, reverse aging, or cure your rosacea. The FDA warns of many false claims when it comes to these de-aging products on the market today. They cost, mostly women, a lot of money and cannot deliver on their promises. The Food and Drug Administration has waged war on the beauty industry, researching and investigating one product at a time.

For those who are familiar with the anti-aging company Strivectin, sold only at high-end stores like Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom’s, they were the most recent company to receive a warning letter from the FDA. There are a few claims that Strivectin makes on their products that the FDA demands be removed. One of those claims is that the skin cream will change the anatomy of a wrinkle. Customers may not even know what that language means but it sounds good enough for women to drop approximately one-hundred bucks on the product daily.

The FDA’s main objections surrounding Strivectin’s claims, were that the company kept promising in different phrases to change the structure of your anatomy, which no cream or any other product can do. Strivectin’s Advanced Tightening Neck Cream was also singled out for its marketing language which included the claims that it will “restore the elastin fiber architecture”, and “while improving resistance to gravity.”

Of course, it is not just Strivectin that is being investigated for its marketing language, many other anti-aging products are under the spotlight. The fact that the FDA is trying to get across to potential customers, is that there is no cream that can change the structure of your anatomy, which includes your skin. Only plastic surgery can produce some of the results many of these customers are seeking. From wrinkles to age spots, there is no mixture in a tube that can vanish these aging skin problems. For some women who have, and who have maintained healthy skin, a simple regular moisturizer can give them the glow and youthful skin they desire.

According to co-author of the Original Beauty Bible, Bryan Barron, the only thing anti-aging creams do is moisturize the skin. Therefore, the FDA is correct in saying that women may as well purchase a good moisturizer than spend their money on these anti-aging products marketing themselves with a lot of words that many customers don’t understand anyway.
