Hailing from the German cosmetics company Kessep-Klein comes Botulex, a cream-based formula that claims to work just as effectively as Botox without injections or toxic side effects. According to Botulex, the product works by quickly penetrating the skin cells with its potent formula, revitalizing weak skin cells and making skin appear young again. Like Botox, it also claims to block neurotransmitters, signals which cause muscle contraction in the face. Botulex is a topical formula, unlike Botox, and it is claimed that by using this formula and by blocking neurotransmitters from activating, users will see more youthful, wrinkle-free skin.

You won’t find Botulex in your local retail store, but there are plenty of retailers online selling this Botox knock-off, usually priced at around $50.00 per bottle. They also offer free samples and a lifetime money-back guarantee for those not confident about its product. Botox alternatives are extremely popular in today’s market, and all types of consumers are willing to pay anything for wrinkle-free, firmer skin. Skeptics question how effectively Botulex works in non-injection form, however.

Product Details

Botulex, according to its website, contains these ingredients: Purified Water, Acetyl Hexapaptide-3, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3, Sodium Hyaluronate, Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE), Coenzyme Q-10, Hydrolyzed Marine Collagen (and) Silanetriol (and) Glutamylamidoethyl Imidazole (and) Fructose Oligossacarides (and) Porphyridium Cuentum Extract, Acrylamide Sodium Acrylate Copolymer (and) Paraffinium Liquidium Myristate, Silk Aminoacids, Avocado Oil, Methylparaben, Imida Zolidinyl Urea, EDTA, Propylparaben, Tocopheral Acetate, Thyme Extract, Citric Acid.

Botulex’s formula is mainly comprised of amino acids. Its main ingredient, Acetyl Hexapaptide-3, is an amino acid that is said to relax facial muscles, therefore preventing the formation of wrinkles. Not much evidence supports this theory, however, except for one obscure study conducted by an unknown group. That study stated continual, high dosage use of Acetyl Hexapaptide-3 reduced the appearance of wrinkles by up to 30% after one month of use. This does provide positive benefits regarding the amino acid, but further testing will be needed to verify its authenticity and any lingering side effects. Currently there are no side effects associated with it, but this does not guarantee that it does not have any.

Botulex appears to be another typical Botox knockoff, but this one contains some credible evidence of its potency. Furthermore, it is not clear if it contains enough of the Acetyl Hexapaptide-3 to be truly effective and we’d like to see more about the concentration of this ingredient that’s used in the formula.

The Good

  • Contains Acetyl Hexapaptide-3, an amino acid said to decrease the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Botulex offers free samples and a money-back guarantee for those not willing to buy the full product.

The Bad

  • Its effectiveness is not concretely proven, along with any side effects. Proceed with caution.
  • Is sold only online.
  • Botulex may not contain enough of its main ingredient to be effective.

The Bottom Line

Most Botox alternatives fail to deliver, but evidence supports some anti-wrinkle benefits for Botulex. It is hard to say how effective it is, but early studies say this might be a winner. Still, it is wise to proceed with caution – scientists have not been able to identify any possible side effects, but there could be some since it is still a relatively new ingredient.
