Strivectin is now claimed to reduce signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles. The company claims you should allow 6-7 weeks before seeing results.
Strivectin was originally designed to diminish the appearance of stretch marks. However, it now claims to reduce signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles.
Klein-Becker, the company that manufactures Strivectin produces a number of anti-aging products that are to be used simultaneously. While that is a smart marketing and moneymaking strategy, it can be frustrating to the consumer as well as rather expensive.
Strivectin is to be applied to clean and dry skin three times daily. The tube is small, so use very little. If your skin feels greasy after application, you are using too much. The wrinkle cream should be massaged into the skin until it is completely absorbed.
Some users even experience a warm sensation shortly after Strivectin SD application. The company claims you should allow 6-7 weeks before seeing results. Since most retailers offer a 60-day money-back guarantee, that gives you time to test the product adequately.
Strivectin contains a rather lengthy list of ingredients. One of the primary ones is Deionized water. Water is thought to penetrate the surface layer of skin and plump up the areas of the face where creases appear.
This supposedly reduces the appearance of wrinkles. However, water is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream, so it is probably not in the skin long enough to be that effective.
Another ingredient that is cause for concern is various types of parabens. Parabens are carcinogenic, which means they can cause cancer.
The formula for Strivectin also contains concentrations of peptides. These are meant to encourage collagen production in the skin. Unfortunately, there has been very little research done to prove this method to be effective.
Negative Aspects Of Strivectin-SD
Strivectin basically does not contain any proven anti-wrinkles ingredients. Consumer reviews have been very mixed. While some users saw improvement in their stretch marks, most of them did not see any difference in their wrinkles at all. Some users experienced skin irritation and outbreaks as a result of using Strivectin SD.
Unfortunately, not only are some of the ingredients potentially dangerous (parabens), but there has been very little research done on the anti-wrinkle cream and its effectiveness. It might be a little comforting to the consumer to see a little scientific data to back up the manufacturer’s claims.
Another negative aspect of Strivectin for most people would be the price. A 6-ounce bottle costs $135.00! Since you need to use the product for nearly 2 months before seeing results, one can only hope that one tube goes a very long way!
Simply put, for a product that has virtually no scientific evidence to back up its claims, Strivectin-SD is expecting you to pay an exorbitant price on blind faith.
There is also a possibility that some of the ingredients could actually be harmful to your skin! To get rid of your wrinkles, you should definitely consider other options before using Strivectin.
