Ceramide-C is a wrinkle cream from Rozge Cosmeceutical advertised as being able to help you get rid of the wrinkles on your face, hands, and/or neck as well as the upper chest.
Let’s look more closely at Ceramide-C and see if it will actually work or if you would be better off with a different wrinkle cream.
About Rozge Cosmeceutical
The Rozge Cosmeceutical company says their mission statement is “to be innovative in the world of health and beauty products.”
They also say their laboratory is FDA-approved, meaning that “proper controls are in place for manufacturing so processing in a consistent manner meets quality standards”.
Unfortunately, an FDA-approved lab does not necessarily guarantee an FDA-approved or endorsed product, so I’m definitely going to have to take a peek at the Ceramide-C formula.
Ingredients in Ceramide-C
The most heavily emphasized ingredient in the Ceramide-C formula is Ceramide, which is a lipid found in the cell membrane. When your skin is low in Ceramide, your skin cells become weak and wrinkles start forming on your face, hands, and neck, among other places.
The problem with Ceramide-C’s Ceramide content is the product does not contain as much Ceramide as they would have you believe. According to ThePerformanceLeader.com, Ceramide falls about halfway down the wrinkle cream’s ingredient list, meaning it is definitely not Ceramide-C’s primary ingredient.
The Rozge Cosmeceutical developers have focused instead on vitamins A and C, which work as antioxidants and to increase skin cell shedding. However, neither vitamin A nor C has the strong wrinkle-fighting abilities you see in peptide compounds. They will thus help your skin feel soft and smooth but will have little effect on your wrinkles.
Additionally, Ceramide-C contains grape seed extract, which was actually previously banned by a lot of natural health companies because of its tendency to cause negative side effects, such as headaches, itchiness, dizziness, and nausea.
Needless to say, I am not overly impressed with Ceramide-C’s formula.
Potential Side Effects
As I mentioned, Ceramide-C contains grape seed extract, which puts users at risk of irritated skin, itchiness, headaches, and even feelings of nausea.
Pricing of Ceramide-C
On the official Rozge Cosmeceutical website, you can order one jar of Ceramide-C for $49.50.
However, I was also able to find Ceramide-C on Amazon.com for a mere $29.11.
Yay or Nay?
I do not think you should try Ceramide-C.
Its ingredients are not nearly as impressive as the ones found in the leading wrinkle creams on the market right now. While it does contain Ceramide, which has been shown to have wrinkle-reducing powers, it does not contain enough of it to have a dramatic effect on your skin.
Plus, it contains grape seed extract, which is known to cause unpleasant side effects. Why would you want to use a product that will cause negative side effects without bringing about any real benefits?
There are plenty of more impressive anti-wrinkle treatments on the market, and I think you should look for one of those instead.
