Prevage Body Total Transforming Anti Aging Moisturizer
This cream, generally sold in department stores by Elizabeth Arden, is said to be a high-performance moisturizer which will reduce not just wrinkles, but all signs of aging. Using a peptide complex and other ingredients, it claims to improve the effects of sun damage such as age spots, alleviate dryness, increase firmness and radiance, and improve the texture of the skin. Peptides are proven to increase collagen production and make the skin look younger, reducing wrinkles and fine lines. We are interested in seeing if this product has enough active ingredients to be effective.
Benefits of Prevage Body Total Transforming Anti Aging Moisturizer
Peptides are effective, but this product only contains one, meaning that it will be relatively useless. It also contains active ingredients that make the peptide more soluble, meaning that it will more easily be absorbed by the skin. Still, we don’t think it will be as effective as other products.
We do believe that this will be a good moisturizer. It has several emollients and other ingredients that are designed for hydrate the skin.
Possible Side Effects for
This product contains 5 parabens. These are ineffective ingredients which can be harmful to the skin. They have been linked to fatal conditions, but even at best they are just a waste of money and cheap ingredients found in ineffective cosmetics. We would always recommend checking your products for parabens and avoiding them if possible.
We would not recommend this product. It may be a good moisturizer, but it costs several times the amount of a generic brand moisturizer, and is probably no more effective. We recommend looking for a peptide-based anti-aging treatment that contains at least three peptides in high quantities.
