|Babor Vita Balance||
Babor Vita is a German-based company devoted to a natural approach to beauty and skin care. It combines a European botanical approach with the latest in cosmetic technology to produce products that are claimed to be safe and effective. The Babor Vita Balance line of products is designed to treat extremely dry skin, leaving it softer and younger looking. According to some of the websites that sell this line, the night cream can minimize fine lines and wrinkles, while it delays light induced aging. The concentrate actually contains an anti-aging ingredient that may have some effect on turning back the clock. However, these products are primarily marketed to those with dry skin, as an effective moisturizing treatment. Anti-aging properties are not the central focus of Babor Vita Balance.
The Babor Vita line consists of five products; a day cream, a night cream, lipid plus capsules, a concentrate and a mask. You can also purchase a travel package that includes all of the products in handy 3-ounce or smaller containers for carryon bags. This might be a good way to try out the entire line for a fraction of the cost as well. The products can be purchased from the company’s website, which is currently offering free samples with every purchase. You can also find the Babor products at online retailers.
While the company website does not list all of the ingredients for the Vita Balance products, you can find complete listings on some of the websites that sell these items. The Babor Vita Balance Concentrate does contain hyaluronic acid, which is a proven anti-aging ingredient. This substance can reduce wrinkles through injection, or provide ultimate hydration when applied topically. While the night cream claims to reduce the appearance of lines, the product list is primarily geared toward hydration of the skin. We could not find known cutting-edge anti-aging ingredients like matrixyl 3000, collagen or argireline. While hydration can help the skin look younger, it is not the most effective way to reduce the look of wrinkles that have already formed.
The lipid plus capsules contain vitamin E and other antioxidants that can prevent additional sun damage to the skin, but aren’t the most effective in reversing damage that has occurred previously. The Babor Vita Balance website talks about the research that is done for their products, but specific data does not seem to be available on the Vita Balance line. There is also no money back guarantee offered through the company website.
- The products are readily available through many sources including the company website.
- You can purchase a travel sized package of the entire line for convenience and sampling.
- There are no proven anti-aging ingredients in these products, with the exception of hyaluronic acid in the concentrate.
- There is no money back guarantee for the products on the company website.
- Research to back claims appears to be sketchy at best.
The Bottom Line
Babor Vita Balance products contain plenty of quality ingredients to keep the skin soft and supple. However, for anti-aging purposes, this line just doesn’t have the oomph necessary to erase the effects of time from your skin.
