Avotone is a wrinkle fighting cream that considers itself an alternative for those that may be considering injections such as Botox or Artefill. Avotone claims that it can smooth wrinkles by causing a slight paralysis of the facial muscles under the skin. This is accomplished with the use of a peptide called acetyl hexapeptide-3 (argeriline) which is one of the main active ingredients found in Avotone. The argireline peptide is licensed for use by a third-party European lab, and can be found in several different wrinkle treatments currently on the market. This peptide is supposed to lessen how strong your facial muscles contract and limits production of muscle-stimulating neurotransmitters as well. If your muscles aren’t contracting as much as usual, this might help your skin look a bit smoother, as well as stop wrinkles from forming in the future.
Avotone has around 15 different products available for purchase on the official website but they all contain very similar ingredients. Avotone offers everything from the wrinkle cream to an eye cream to a shaving cream for men.
Avotone contains Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 which is also known as argireline. This compound has been studied and does help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by inhibiting muscle contractions. Another main ingredient is avocado oil. Avocado oil is extremely rich in vitamins and lipids, which are very popular in all types of skin treatments and have anti-oxidant properties.
In addition to these two main ingredients, Avotone also contains: Propylene Glycol, Acrylamide Colopymer, Fragrance, Ethyparaben, Methyparaben and Propylparaben. These are just your standard ingredients that help make the cream smooth and fragrant.
Avotone does contain some ingredients that people can be allergic to and these are the paraben preservatives. There are also some potential users out there that may be allergic to avocado products but not many. Avotone is also pH balanced so it won’t cause any type of skin irritation and you can use it in conjunction with other wrinkle creams and sun protection lotions.

The Bottom Line
Avotone does contain argireline which is proven to help reduce wrinkles. However, the inclusion of this well-known peptide does not really set it apart from the crowd, since argireline can be found in other products as well. The avocado oil may have moisturizing and nourishing properties which is a good addition to any type of body lotion or cream. The problem with Avotone is the price combined with the lack of positive testimonials around the Internet. At close to $90 for less than an ounce, you may be better off finding a product that also contains Matrixyl 3000, collagen, or other compounds that have been studied and provide results.
