BioSource is a clinical line of nutritionally-based products claiming to treat common health conditions by offering vitamin-rich products designed to treat a range of nutritional issues, ranging from skincare to vitamin supplementation. The entire brand was developed by a team of pharmacists claiming to use state-of-the-art clinical research and experimentation. Currently they only offer one product that targets skin care called Natural Acne Clear, which targets acne and uneven skin. This product is an emollient said to contain Glycomax Lactoferrin, Colostrum, and Immunoglobulins, which BioSource says contribute to healing skin abnormalities, including unevenness. Uneven, discolored skin is an issue facing many older women, and it can worsen the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

BioSource appears to be a credible clinical brand, and they clearly back up their claims with scientific evidence. Luckily BioSource is widely available online, and their skincare-related product, Natural Acne Clear, costs $17.99 per kit. This is easily affordable for those even on the tightest budgets; however, these products do not specifically target wrinkles and fine lines — something consumers may desire instead. Nevertheless, BioSource Natural Acne Clear will be evaluated for any secondary anti-aging benefits it may yield.

Product Details

BioSource lists Natural Acne Clear’s ingredients as the following: Australian Freeze Dried Glycomax Lactoferrin, Lactoferrin Bovine and Colostrum Powder-Bovine. Glycomax Lactoferrin, according to BioSource, is an extract from the whey protein chemical in cow milk. Bodybuildiers commonly use whey protein to help build extra muscle tissue and it plays a fundamental role in stabilizing blood sugars, but it is not directly correlated with any specific skin-related benefits. Lactoferrin Bovine is another extract from cow’s milk, and according to one Japanese study, it decreases the spread of bacteria when consumed. Colostrum Powder-Bovine had the same effect. It appears the ingredients included are aimed at controlling the spread of bacteria and infection, and since the formula is cream-based, it seems this effect was designed to be implemented on skin tissue. There are no studies presenting how these ingredients work topically, but early studies indicate these do have a strong effect when digested. It may help control the spread of bacteria on skin.

What these ingredients don’t prevent is the spread of fine lines and wrinkles, along with preventing other skin conditions such as rough or dry skin, an issue that plagues older women and men. None of these benefits are guaranteed through its ingredients, so it’s difficult to say if BioSource will have any effect on the skin.

The Good

  • Is moderately cheap and available through many online retailers.
  • Contains ingredients that may fight bacteria present on the skin.

The Bad

  • Ingredient do not lessen the appearance of wrinkles or fine lines.
  • Product focuses more on acne prevention than improving the skin’s appearance.
  • Currently only available in Australia.

The Bottom Line

Treating skin from the inside out is key to preserving a youthful appearance, but ingredients also must treat skin conditions directly. It appears that Biosource only treats the causes of skin conditions and not their symptoms. Fundamentally, BioSource really is more of an acne treatment than a wrinkle treatment.

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Revivasol 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. By recommending lifestyle changes like diet and exercise, Revivasol has firmly placed their customers health first. We never see skin care companies doing this sort of marketing. In addition, scientifically-proven results on how the formula works says it all, and the Revivasol website provides ample proof.
