CBI Botanical Bio-Peptide Creme is marketed as an intensive conditioning cream that stimulates collagen re-growth and reduces and eliminates both shallow and deep wrinkles.
The CBI website focuses on retailers and wholesalers and does not provide much information for the consumer. There is no list of product ingredients, or any indication of clinical studies that prove the effectiveness of the active ingredients. The CBI website does not sell CBI products directly but there are several online retailers carrying the product. There is no indication of samples of CBI Botanical Bio-Peptide Creme offered so that the consumer can try the product before investing in an entire bottle. There also does not appear to be a money-back guarantee.
There are very few product details available on the CBI website. CBI Botanical Bio-Peptide Creme claims to reverse the effects of environmentally-stressed skin and to combat the negative effects of aging. The website does not explain which active ingredients are responsible for these actions on the skin. The product does contain peptides, according to its name. Peptides are commonly found in anti-wrinkle formulations and have been clinically tested as being an effective ingredient in skin-repairing lotions. There are many types of peptides, some more effective than others, so without knowing the specific type of peptide contained in CBI Botanical Bio-Peptide Creme, it is difficult to be able to assess the product’s effectiveness.
The description of the product does not include any information about potentially allergy-inducing ingredients.
- Contains peptides which have some clinical trials suggesting they are effective in wrinkle reduction regimens.
- Product stimulates collagen production and reduces even deep wrinkles according to retailer websites.
- CBI website does not provide a full list of ingredients.
- Cannot purchase product on CBI company website.
- No information appears to be available regarding effectiveness of the active ingredients.
- No product guarantee appears to be available.
The Bottom Line
CBI Botanical Bio-Peptide Creme contains peptides, which are commonly used in higher-end wrinkle reduction formulations. However, because of the lack of information on the official website regarding the type of peptides included and the other active ingredients, it is difficult to assess the effectiveness of the product or its ability to induce allergies. Those consumers who have had allergic reactions to skin products in the past should stay with a product that is proven non-allergenic and has no chemical fragrances or colorings.
The apparent lack of product samples available or a money-back guarantee makes buying CBI Botanical Bio-Peptide Creme a financial risk. There are several other products on the market that have clinically-proven ingredients and the ability to test first and get your money back if a product doesn’t meet your expectations.
