Beauty Noir is a distributor for skin care and makeup products formulated for women of color. In the Beauty Noir skin care line of products there are cleansers, toners, and moisturizers, and also a grouping just for mature skin. Unfortunately, the Beauty Noir website provides little information for each of its products. We were unable to locate a full ingredient list for each product and, in many cases, the active ingredients are not listed. The company refers to results from a “panel” but that is not the same thing as a clinical trial and there is no indication that the Beauty Noir products have been thoroughly tested.
All of the Beauty Noir products can be purchased directly from the distributor’s website through the shopping cart function. We are pleased to see a 30-day satisfaction guarantee being offered as we feel this helps the consumer to purchase with confidence knowing that if the product doesn’t live up to the promised results or if it triggers allergies, they can get their money back.
We will take a closer look at the Beauty Noir Advanced Formula Creme since this product is marketed as being for mature skin. The product claims to smooth lines, fade spots, and make skin look more youthful. Beauty Noir does not list any ingredients in the cream so it is impossible to determine whether the product might be able to deliver those results. At a retail price of around $28 for 3.25 ounces, it may be unlikely that the product would contain clinically-proven ingredients for such a low price.
When we look for an effective anti-aging or anti-wrinkle product, there are certain ingredients that appear in many of the top-rated ones. Matrixyl 3000 is a peptide that reboots the body’s ability to produce collagen and elastin which firm and tighten the skin. Argiriline is another peptide that smoothes wrinkles by relaxing the underlying facial muscles. The best products team these powerful anti-aging ingredients up with hyaluronic acid which holds moisture in the skin and helps restore skin’s moisture barrier. There is no indication that these ingredients are included in the Beauty Noir formulations.

The Bottom Line
The fact that the Beauty Noir products are specifically targeted to women of color may be appealing to some consumers in that market segment, however, the signs of aging occur in all skin types and colors so the most important thing is finding a skin care product that will provide significant results. We find it difficult to recommend the Beauty Noir products with so little information being provided by the distributor. We suggest that those wishing to find a clinically-proven anti-aging product continue their search.
