Alba Botanica Complex was founded in 1989 to provide sophisticated, sensual body products to women. The formulas in this line combine pure botanicals, essential oils and a variety of nutrients to produce high quality skin, hair, bath and body, lip and sun care. The company also offers a line of Hawaiian products that feature tropical ingredients and organic aloe Vera. The Alba Advanced line provides a marine complex that blends five algae extracts for the ultimate moisturizing and revitalizing experience.

We are pleased to see that the Alba Botanica Complex website provides plenty of good information about the individual products, including full ingredient lists. We believe it is important for consumers to have this information in order to make educated decisions about their skin care needs. The company also offers a 30-day money back guarantee on purchases and allows consumers to buy their products directly from the company website. In addition, Alba Botanica Complex is available through many health food and vitamin stores as well as online retailers.

Product Details

For the purpose of this review, we will take a look at one particular Alba Botanica Complex; the Sea Plus Renewal Cream. This product is touted as an intensive moisturizer that can firm and tone the skin and noticeably diminish the signs of aging. The ingredients are listed on the company website, and the list is a long one indeed. Unfortunately, there was little on this list that convinced us that this would be the most effective anti-aging formula. While we appreciate that this product is chocked full of natural ingredients and botanicals that would undoubtedly look and feel good on the skin, the only proven anti-aging ingredient we found in the mix was sodium hyaluronate.

Sodium hyaluronate is an effective skin hydrator that can help the skin retain moisture and smooth the surface enough to diminish the appearance of fine lines. However, sodium hyaluronate is much more effective when it is combined with patented anti-wrinkle agents like matrixyl and argireline. Matrixyl has been clinically proven to stimulate the production of collagen, a substance that is lost as we age and contributes to the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkles. Argireline relaxes facial muscles that contribute to the formation of wrinkles and has been shown to reduce the appearance of those wrinkles by up to 30%. Neither of these ingredients appear to be present in this Alba Botanica Complex.

The Good

  • The Alba Botanica Complex includes many natural ingredients and nutrients.
  • The company provides complete ingredients lists and a money back guarantee.

The Bad

  • We were unable to find customer testimonials for the products.
  • The formulas do not appear to contain many proven anti-wrinkle ingredients.
  • The long ingredient lists may indicate a less effective formula.

The Bottom Line

The Alba Botanica Complex shows some promise as a general skin care regimen that may prolong the effects of aging to some degree. However, once those fine lines and wrinkles have already formed, there isn’t much in these formulas to suggest that the products will diminish them much. We would urge consumers to look for products containing patented anti-wrinkle agents like argireline and matrixyl for maximum benefit.


** Our Top Skin Care Choice **

Rejuval Skin Bottle

Top Anti-Aging Cream for 2014: Rejuval Skin

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Rejuval Skin is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care. Rejuval Skin contains the advanced scientifically proven ingredient Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the scientific studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Rejuval Skin is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Rejuval Skin Go



Vivexin

(Optional- For Enhanced Results): Vivexin

Editor's Review: 4.6 / 5.0

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this! Vivexin is an anti-aging, eye treatment formulated to lighten dark circles, lessen the appearance of bags under the eyes and minimize fine lines and crow's feet associated with premature skin aging. The three active ingredients in Vivexin - Haloxyl, Eyeliss and Matrixyl - are backed with clinical research and positive consumer testimonials. If that's not enough to convince consumers to try Vivexin, the company offers a 90-day money-back guarantee so consumers can see the changes in eye appearance with the option of returning the product if they are not convinced >> Read more about Vivexin Go

    RE: your comments that Alba Bot does not have the ‘proven’ anti aging effects, isn’t it possible for an organic product’s herbs,etc. can produce the same results, i.e. collagen promoter, etc?
