|Ceutox Biological Cream||
Ceutox Biological Cream is a product from Cellnique, a Malaysian company “devoted to the revolution of result-oriented yet personalized beauty solutions”, according to the Cellnique website. Ceutox Biological Cream is found in the anti-aging category of this company, claiming to help smooth expression lines and assist with the overall smoothness of the skin. We found the Cellnique website difficult to navigate, with pages that didn’t seem to work and little information about the individual products. We were not able to find a money back guarantee policy or customer testimonials on any of these products. The price of the Ceutox Biological Cream is rather high, selling on the company website for about $228 US dollars at the time of this review.
In addition to the lack of information about the Cellnique products on the company website, we believe that another concern is the lack of availability of the Ceutox Biological Cream on other corporate retail websites. We found that ordering this product is mostly limited to the Cellnique website, with the exception of a few offerings on auction websites, which puts the consumer at an immediate disadvantage in terms of convenience.
Cellnique does not appear to offer a complete ingredient list for the Ceutox Biological Cream or any of their products, which is a big concern to us. We believe that a complete disclosure of this information is essential to ensure that a consumer can make a discerning choice in skin care. Listing ingredients in a formula lets the consumer know that the active ingredients included can deliver on the promises of a product. It also alerts a consumer to potential allergy issues, which is especially helpful to those with sensitive skin.
The one ingredient that is listed in the Ceutox Biological Cream is palmitoyl pentapeptide-3, also known as matrixyl. This substance can effectively stimulate the production of collagen in the skin, which is lost in the aging process and leads to fine lines and wrinkles. However, matrixyl is more effective when it is combined with other proven anti-aging ingredients like argireline or hyaluronic acid. We do not know if the Ceutox Biological Cream contains any of these substances.
- Ceutox Biological Cream contains palmitoyl pentapeptide-3.
- The Ceutox Biological Cream does not seem readily available for sale other than on the company website.
- The corporate website is difficult to navigate and doesn’t provide much information.
- The product is very expensive.
- We could not find a money back guarantee or customer testimonials.
The Bottom Line
We are happy to see that palmitoyl pentapeptide-3, a proven anti-aging peptide, is included in Ceutox Biological Cream. However, the lack of information about the rest of the formula, coupled with a high price tag and no apparent money back guarantee, gives us significant pause. We believe consumers can find more effective formulas for lower prices from companies that are more forthcoming with information.
