    Default Anti aging cream:

    Hello Everyone,

    This is Michelle, new to this forum, I hope I can exchange products/ideas with everyone on this forum.

    I don't have wrinkles, but I am beginning to have the appearance of fine lines. After doing some homework, on the ingredients that are most effective, I learned of a cream called Preve from Isabella Pelle. After 2 weeks of usage the fine lines have disappeared. I learned of this company from a friend in college.

    I emailed the company and asked them what is it that makes their product different from those found in mass market retail, or high end stores, and they replied that they use the maximum allowed ingredient called palmitoyl tripeptide-5, along with watermelon and algae extracts as antioxidants. In English, this translated to me saying "adios" to the fine lines. Mass market creams simply have fillers instead of the maximum portions active ingredients hence the cheaper pricing. So I hope my experience helps other. I look forward in hearing from others. take care michelle.

    This seems to be very exclusive ingredient. Alpha hydroxy acids and antioxidants work well as anti aging agents too. Try using products containing them. Also its never too early to start using anti aging skin care products!

    this also could be a chemical name for a regular ingredient used in the cheaper creams. marketers always have ways to trick you into buying their product. it might be special but i would investigate it myself.

    Hi Brenda,

    I have to tell you that is why I like the Isabella Pelle line. All of their active ingredients are there on the website . It tells you what each ingredient does etc.
    If a manufacturer especially one making multi-million dollar ads, celebrity endorsed products uses, "and we use a special secret formula" right there and then I change the channel, turn the magazine page, or change the radio station. Transparency is the key point here.

    I think the only place that the "secret formula" applies is in KFC chicken.

    Don't fall for "secret ingredients" nonsense. It's a scam. If you see an anti-aging treatment with the same ingredients as another one, you can be sure the levels of concentration are much lower in the cheap one. That is why if you go to walgreens or another local drugstore you will see wrinkle cream formulas or eye creams that have the same ingredients as expensive online versions. You can know that there is about a 50% base of water in each formula for one, and the rest of it is broken down into different levels of the remaining ingredient, plus something to hold it together. A site I found informative on this subject is an authority blog on eye serum. Check it out and read about ingredients and concentration levels for a brief overview of the subject at hand.

    vencasand, i am very excited to tell you that we, VALENCE opened a store and we specialize in selling the latest skincare products from japan and korea.

    although the fda has been very strict, we were able to have everything approved. it was a lengthy process but it was worth it in order to share the goodness of japanese and korean skincare products to the united states...so we can no longer say we are missing out!

    Default Asian manufactured cosmetics

    The problem with products manufactured in Korea (assuming South), and Japan, I do not know of their "FDA" and procedures. Yes I know our FDA is not perfect, but it better than "anything goes" manufacturing practices. Most of the cosmetics here, ( and I researched this) comes from China, not Japan. A minority of cosmetics in the USA, and Canada are actually made in USA/Canada. You don't see American companies with plants in Japan, or South Korea. You see them in China. Look, I don't mind buying a lawn chair made in China, but having makeup made in China is simply too risky for me.

    I guess most women either do not care, or think it not to be of importance the origin of manufacture. You can get contaminated makeup batches. What the USA, and Canada should do is make mandatory in big red letter, "made in china", or "china junk". The large cosmetic companies are really gutter trash, they make their junk in china for pennies, sell it in Sephora for 1000% profit margins. No wonder they make millions off the ignorance of others.

    For years I always wondered what MAC stood for, now I know: Made All in China"

    Agree with you 100%. Look at the link I posted my prior post. There is an entire part of the site devoted to "Why buy USA-made anti aging creams." It's a good read if you are in the market for an anti aging cream.
