|A&G Skin Solutions||
A&G Skin Solutions is a company based out of California that produces a very small line of anti-aging products. According to the website, the founders of A&G Skin Solutions are Dr. Al-Qahtani and Dr. Greg Maguire. Both of these doctors claim to have many different certifications and credentials. It appears as though the products may be derived from certain types of stem cell research and also could be considered cutting edge. We will examine this further in this review.
There are 3 products in the A&G Skin Solution line of anti-aging products. These products are Active Serum, Eye Serum, and Recovery Serum. It is believed that all 3 of these products contain either some or all of the following ingredients: Pycnogenol, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Evening Primrose Oil, Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins, and Antioxidants.
The function of the Active Serum is said to help repair damaged skin cells and generate skin tissue in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The purpose of the Eye Serum, as claimed on the website, is to reduce the dark circles and wrinkles around the eyes. Recovery Serum appears to have been designed specifically to aid in the healing process after undergoing certain facial procedures in a doctor’s office. It is also said to stimulate Collagen production. Pynogenol is said to be a patented ingredient that is one of the most studied in the natural marketplace today. The source shows there may be clinical proof that it can be useful as a skincare product, but it does not specify which area. The extract comes from the bark of the maritime pine tree that is found only on the coast of southwest France in Les Landes de Gascogne. It has 4 basic properties: antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, binds to Collagen and Elastin, and aids in the production of endothelial nitric oxide. Vitamin E is said to help protect the skin from possible free radical damage. Vitamin C is thought to be required for the synthesis of Collagen. However, if it has not been preserved properly in a product it may actually cause free radical production.
No evidence was found supporting Evening Primrose Oil as an anti-wrinkle agent, however, it does aid in reducing several types of inflammation, possibly making this an effective ingredient in the Recovery Serum. Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins is said to an antioxidant that is 20 times more powerful than Vitamins E and C put together.

The Bottom Line
At first glance, A&G Skin Solutions appears to be a potentially great effective product that very well may deliver what it promises. However, it is surrounded by potential controversy. First, it may not appeal to animal rights activists due to the fact that it conducts lab tests on animals, particularly mice. Then, it may be considered offensive to those who passionately oppose stem cell research. A&G Skin Solutions may even be worth the money, but it may pose a problem for people who are opposed to animal and stem cell research.
