Alaur Skin Care Solutions were created by Dr Albert Lefkovits and New York dermatologist. He originally created the line for his patients only. Soon, the products went public and can now be purchased on the official product website as well as several other internet retailers. This is an extremely long product line, which includes but is not limited to; masks, toners, cleansers, moisturizers and other therapies. The site also boasts of their new break through therapies in the anti-aging field. These include Virgin Skin, a product that we will review momentarily.
Finding a particular product on the website can be a bit tricky; the site is not easily navigated. This is yet another product line that does not offer a full ingredients list on their website, if anywhere. Plus it does not look like the company actively sells the Alaur skin care line. All the products on the company website are links to other retailers who actually take the orders and ship the product. You will not find any sort of corporate backing of the products in way of a money back guarantee or consumer reviews.
Virgin Skin Anti-Aging Cream from Alaur Skin Solutions claims what all other products claim, that it will smooth away your lines and or wrinkles making you look and feel younger. Now the Alaur website did not provide a list of ingredients to be checked for their effectiveness but an online retailer that sells the product did.
The anti- aging cream from Alaur includes the following: water, Water, propylene glycol, butylene glycol, squalene, cyclomethicone, sorbitan stearate, dimethicone, tocopheryl acetate, prunus dulcis, simmondsia chinensis seed oil, polysorbate 60, polyacrylide, c13-14 isoparrafin, butyrospermum parkii, palmitoyl hydrolyzed wheat protein, centella asiatica, mimosa tenuiflora, phenoxyethanol, aloe barbadensis, laureth-7, fragrance, benzyl alcohol, methyisothiazolinone, methylchloroisothiazolinone, benzyl salicylate, amyl cinnamal, alpha-isomethyl ionone, linalool, hydroxyisohexyl 3-cyclohexene carboxaldehyde, limonene, butylphenyl methylpropional, sodium hyaluronate, tocopherol.
This is quite a list of ingredients however, there is only one that has been shown to have any effect on fine lines and that is sodium hyaluronate. This substance works the best when combined with other great anti-wrinkle skin care ingredients such as argilerline and matrixyl. From the list above you can see this product contains neither.
- There are many online sites offering the Alaur Skin care line.
- The diverse product line covers many skin care issues.
- Alaur’s company website does not provide ingredient information on any of the products.
- There are no customer reviews or any guarantees readily apparent from corporate.
- The ingredient list for the anti-aging products is lacking any proven ingredients.
- The company does not sell their own products.
The Bottom Line
Having the badge of being “dermatologist created” could tempt any consumer. What could possibly be better than a product made by a doctor? That does not erase the fact that Alaur Skin Solutions is lacking in the anti-aging department. When a product does not contain proven ingredients like argireline or maytrixyl, it does not bode well for their effectiveness and would not be the best product available for a customer with those needs.
