Cellgenesis Eye Serum is designed to reduce the signs of aging around the eye. The price tag is a whopping $65 per half-ounce – much higher than comparable products from other trusted companies. We’d love to tell consumers there are tons of positive reviews, but we were able to find just a few. There is a complete list of ingredients online and consumers can review each of the ingredients before making the final purchase to ensure only safe ingredients are used. There are no parabens in the formula. The suggested use claims consumers have to apply the serum twice each day. Only a tiny amount is needed, according to consumer reviews, but the effects are dependent on using the product twice a day.
We searched through the entire ingredient list and thought we might make it through without concern, but we did find two ingredients with potential side effects. Steareth-20 is commonly tainted with ethylene oxide and/or 1, 4-dioxane. These ingredients may be carcinogens, according to various international associations.
Phenoxyethanol may be associated with allergies, but it is the classification as a toxin if ingested after application near the mouth that concerns us the most. While most consumers would not apply an eye serum like Cellgenesis Eye Serum around the mouth, there is no warning that the product should NOT be applied to the fine lines of the mouth. If the consumer notices changes in crow’s feet they may think this product is safe for use on laugh lines and that is not the case.

The Bottom Line
Not only are consumers concerned with the color and absorption of Cellgenesis Eye Serum, they are not warned of potential side effects or health considerations associated with some of the ingredients in this product. Parabens are not the only potentially dangerous ingredients used in cosmetics and anti-aging products. It is best to research each ingredient in a formula individually to better understand the dangers of a given product.
