|Age Decelerating Cream||
Age Decelerating Cream with kinetin is an Almay skin care product that does not appear to be offered by the company any longer. However, the product is still available through outlet website and online auction houses, so we feel it is important for consumers to know precisely what this anti-aging cream is all about. The Almay Kinetin Age Decelerating Cream claims to deliver dramatic results to the skin without the potential irritation risk of alpha hydroxy acids or retinol. It does so with what it touts are two newcomers to the anti-aging spectrum; kinetin and gluconamide.
Unfortunately, since it appears that Almay no longer carries the Kinetin Age Decelerating Cream, we were also unable to find important information like a complete ingredient list for the formula, customer testimonials or a money back guarantee. The good news is that if consumers do find the Kinetin Age Decelerating Cream for sale, they will undoubtedly find it at a greatly reduced price. However, without important information like the ingredients included in the mix, it is very difficult to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of this product.
Without an official website providing a complete ingredient list for the Almay Kinetin Age Decelerating Cream, we are unable to accurately determine whether this product will be safe for all skin types or particularly effective. The only two ingredients that we were able to identify in the formula include kinetin and gluconamide. These two “wonder” ingredients are touted as “powerful line-smoothing” substances on one website that still offers the product for sale. We will look further at these two substances to see if they really can deliver on their promises.
Kinetin, a substance found in plants, is known as a super moisturizer in skin care formulas. However, as other substances have appeared on the market with equal or better skin hydration abilities, kinetin is not frequently found in anti-aging products. We believe the best skin hydrator for anti-aging purposes is hyaluronic acid, due to its ability to help the skin retain moisture, smooth the skin’s surface and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Gluconamide is a common substance found in numerous hair care products and cosmetics. However, we were unable to find any research to support this ingredient as an effective anti-aging substance.
- The Almay Kinetin Age Decelerating Cream can be found on some websites for a discounted price.
- The product comes from a major company with a reputation for quality.
- Almay appears to no longer offer the Age Decelerating Cream for sale.
- We were unable to find a complete ingredient list for the product.
- The cream does not appear to include proven anti-aging substances like hyaluronic acid, argireline and matrixyl.
The Bottom Line
The Almay Kinetin Age Decelerating Cream appears to be lacking some key anti-aging ingredients that would boost its effectiveness in this area. Since the product does not seem to be offered by the company any longer, we believe consumers should look elsewhere for more potent formulas that are currently available.
