Abyssine Cream is an antiaging product created by Kiehl’s. The Kiehl’s antiaging products have been around for more than 150 years and that is a benefit for this antiaging product. There if an official Kiehl’s website providing information on the Abyssine Cream. The product is supposed to achieve the same broad results as many other antiaging products – the reduction of wrinkles and lines with protection against future free radical damage. The claims may be common but the ingredient list offers a few new ingredients.
The Abyssine Cream is offered in a traditional cream and a daytime cream with added SPF for sun damage protection.
The untamed ocean is the source of the mystery ingredients in the Abyssine Cream. Abyssine 657 is an ingredient found in the hypothermic vents of the ocean. This ingredient is supposed to soothe the skin and provide protection. Red coral is the source for the coralline extract in the Abyssine Cream. This ingredient claims to give strength to the moisture barrier of the skin. Apricot kernel oil and various antioxidants round out the ingredient list.
The official Abyssine Cream ingredient list is found on the Kiehl’s website. The ingredient list is rather long and that can be a negative in antiaging products. Often there are more ingredients added to products containing ingredients that are less effective. There is no collagen in this antiaging cream which is another shot against the Abyssine Cream.
- The company manufacturing Abyssine Cream has been around for more than 150 years.
- The sun protection and added antioxidants are of good benefit to skin health.
- The $45.00 price for 50 ml is comparable to other antiaging creams.
- There is an official website for the Abyssine Cream.
- There is no collagen in the ingredient list for Abyssine.
- There are no free trials offered on the official website.
- There is no clarity to the return policy.
- No scientific studies supporting the ingredients are listed on the website.
The Bottom Line
Collagen and peptides are the two main ingredients in all effective antiaging creams. Abyssine Cream, or any of the Abyssine products for that matter, do not contain with collagen or peptides. The ingredient list, while long, is not backed with proof that they work – another big negative.
In a world full of antiaging products, finding one with scientific and clinical studies backing the antiaging benefits is an option and one the consumer should look for. The Abyssine Cream and various Abyssine products offered by Kiehl’s may have 150 years of positive branding behind them but the solutions are not the best on them market for the money. Choosing a more effective product will offer better results to the consumer.
