Celltrex is a product offered by Nu Skin Enterprises, a company that began in 1984 and that offers a variety of skin care lines. Celltrex Ultra Recovery Fluid claims to keep skin “looking supple, firm and healthy” with an ingredient that is not often found in anti-aging products. The substance that is touted in this formula is extra-virgin olive oil and the properties that are associated with it. We will explore this substance further as it pertains to winning the war on wrinkles later in this review.
Celltrex Ultra Recovery Fluid can be purchased through the Nu Skin website. We were unable to find other online retailers that offered the Celltrex Ultra Recovery Fluid for sale. The Nu Skin product pages provide ample information about the product, including a complete ingredient list and usage information. However, we were unable to find customer testimonials to back up the claims of the product or information about a money back guarantee. We believe that a quality product will be offered through multiple retailers and will provide information like customer testimonials to help consumers make an informed choice in their skin care.
The ingredients in the Celltrex Ultra Recovery Fluid contains: Water, Glycerin, Sorbitol, Guar Hydroxypropyl-trimonium Chloride, Ethoxydiglycol, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Retinyl Palmitate, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavendar) Oil, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Oil, Isoceteth-20, Oleth-10, Sodium Hydroxide, Citric Acid, Sodium Chloride, Disodium EDTA, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben.
The main ingredient in the Celltrex Ultra Recovery Fluid appears to be extra-virgin olive oil, which is touted for its antioxidant properties. While antioxidants are a good way to fight the effects of free radicals when they are included in our diets, the jury is still out on whether antioxidants in skin care are really effective. At the very least, there is no evidence to show that antioxidants will do anything to reduce the look of wrinkles that already exist. We are also concerned with the fact that this product contains parabens, since these are suspected carcinogens and potential irritants. The only ingredient that seems to show promise in this formula is retinyl palmitate which can effectively resurface and smooth the skin. However, there are more potent anti-aging ingredients available out there, like matrixyl, argireline and sodium hyaluronate.

The Bottom Line
Celltrex Ultra Recovery Fluid has an interesting approach to the anti-aging process by using olive oil as a key ingredient. However, there is no evidence to prove that this substance will do anything to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the skin. We believe there are more potent formulas available in other products.
