|Bellanina Bio-Peptide Serum||
Bellanina Bio-Peptide Serum is manufactured by Bellanina Skin Therapy, which has face and body skin care solutions. Bellanina Bio-Peptide Serum claims to reduce or eliminate deep surface wrinkles with a combination of botanicals. There are hundreds of “natural” skin care products on the market today and they appeal to consumers who feel that natural ingredients are better than synthetic ones. However, we find ourselves disappointed with the lack of effectiveness of most of the “natural” skin care products. In the next section, we will take a closer look at the ingredients in Bellanina to see if it might be able to deliver results.
Customers can purchase Bellanina Bio-Peptide Serum directly from the company’s website. The website however is missing some important information that would allow consumers to get a better understanding of the product. There does not appear to be a money-back guarantee offered, which is something that gives consumers confidence knowing that if the product doesn’t work out for them, they won’t be stuck with a whole container of it. There are also no customer testimonials or before and after pictures to support the effectiveness of the product. More importantly, there do not appear to be any results from clinical testing of the product displayed. We feel the best skin care products are thoroughly tested to ensure that the promises made by the marketing department can be kept.
According to the company’s website, the ingredients in Bellanina Bio-Peptide Serum are: Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Palmitoyl – Pentapeptide 3, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon Bioflavonoids) Leaf Extarct, Equisetum Arverse Extract, Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract, Pinus Syvestris Cone Extarct, Rhamnus Purshiana Bark Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary ) Leaf Extract, Saccharromyces Lysate Extract, Allantoin, Glycoproteins, Sodium Hyaluronate, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Polysorbate 20, Carbomer, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Soduim Hyaluronate, Benzoic Acid, Chlorphenesin, Methylparaben, and Phenoxyethanol. Some consumers may feel that the more ingredients present, the more likely the product is to work. We find just the opposite in many cases. The best skin care companies include a few of the most effective ingredients and use only those.
The two stand out ingredients in Bellanina Bio-Peptide Serum are palmitoyl-pentapeptide 3, also known as Matrixyl, and hyaluronic acid. Matrixyl is a peptide that stimulates the body’s own production of collagen and elastin which gives the skin tautness and tone. Hyaluronic acid hydrates the skin and stores water. No other ingredient in the list peaks our interest or suggests that it could assist in the reduction of wrinkles- the product’s main claim.
- Contains Matrixyl and hyaluronic acid.
- Can purchase Bellanina Bio-Peptide Serum online directly from manufacturer.
- No money-back guarantee offered.
- Missing important anti-wrinkle ingredients like Argiriline.
- Not labeled as non-allergenic.
The Bottom Line
We feel that consumers could do a lot worse than Bellanina Bio-Peptide Serum but we feel they could do better as well. The product would have impressed us more if it contained fewer ingredients, did not contain parabens which are known allergens, and if it was backed by a money-back guarantee. The good news is that there are products on the market that meet these high standards and we recommend that you research these before settling on this one.
