Collective Wellbeing is a company dedicated to producing high quality products for the hair, skin and body. The company website is well organized and the skin care products are categorized both by category and by solution. The anti-aging line by Collective Wellbeing consists of a day moisturizer with an SPF, a night quenching cream and a maximum strength eye cream. For the purpose of this review, we will focus on the maximum strength eye cream that claims to firm the skin around the eyes while diminishing the look of wrinkles and dark circles.
The products offered by Collective Wellbeing are reasonably priced and available both through the company website and online retailers. If ordering is done through the Collective Wellbeing website, there is a 30-day money back guarantee. While we were unable to find customer testimonials listed on the company website, there was access offered to much of the media coverage for these products in magazines like Cosmopolitan, Allure and Redbook.
The ingredients in the Collective Wellbeing Category 5 Maximum Strength Eye Cream are: Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Certified Organic Euphrasia Officinalis (Eyebright) Extract, Certified Organic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Punica Granaztum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Ceramide-2, PEG-10 Brassica Rapa (Canola) Sterol, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vit. E), Retinyl Palmitate (Vit. A), PEG-3 Benzyl Ether Myristate, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oilm Laureth-23/-4, Titanium Dioxide, Mica, Silica and Iron Oxides.
One of the ingredients that stands out to us in this Collective Wellbeing formula is palmitoyl oligopeptide, a substance that can stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. Collagen is naturally produced by the body, but decreases as we age, leading to thinner skin and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Most effective anti-aging products will include some type of collagen stimulator if they are to be as effective as they promise. Retinyl palmitate, also known as vitamin A, is also found in a number of anti-aging products. While it has not been proven as effective in eliminating the appearance of wrinkles, it can successfully improve the appearance and texture of the skin. However, it can also be irritating to those with sensitive skin.
- The Collective Wellbeing eye cream contains a peptide to stimulate collagen production.
- The company provides a 30-day money back guarantee on all products.
- Other proven anti-aging ingredients like argireline, collagen and hyaluronic acid are missing from the formula.
- Some ingredients in this Collective Wellbeing formula may be irritating to sensitive skin.
- No customer testimonials for the products could be found at this time.
The Bottom Line
While we like the fact that Collective Wellbeing includes a peptide to stimulate collagen production, we wish they would have used additional proven anti-aging ingredients that would have boosted the effectiveness of the products. There are also some ingredients that may be irritating to sensitive skin types. While this eye cream may offer some benefits, it probably doesn’t have the oomph of other anti-aging products on the market today.
