|Colonial Dames Vitamin E Complex||
Colonial Dames is the manufacturer of several skin care products, including the Colonial Dames Vitamin C & E Age Defying complex. It seems that Vitamin E is one of the focuses of this brand, because it is also included in several other topical Colonial Dames products. In addition to selling the product online, Colonial Dames also offers consumers an affiliate program if they are interested in selling the product themselves. In addition to the Colonial Dames Vitamin E Anti-Aging cream, the brand offers a men’s product line, a set of toners, a set of aloe vera based skin care products and an extensive line of Vitamin E based products. It seems like Colonial Dames are aiming to position themselves as an affordable skin care choice, and most of their products seem to fall into the $10 range.
The Colonial Dames Vitamin C & E Age Defying Complex seems to be one of the leading anti-aging products from this manufacturer. Vitamin C and Vitamin E are both known to fighting free radicals when applied topically. Free radicals are found in air born pollutants, and they are known to age the skin and contribute to symptoms like dry skin or irritated skin.
Colonial Dames claims to use only “pharmaceutical grade” ingredients in all of their products. A product like the Vitamin C & E Age Defying Complex looks like a solid preventive product, but as far as we can tell, it has little to offer in terms of treating existing wrinkles. Sun protection and free radical protection are both good idea, but we see nothing in this product that will aid collagen production, which is one of the only known ways to get rid of wrinkles. The Colonial Dames Vitamin C & E Age Defying complex is in the brand’s “specialty products” category, not in it’s Vitamin E line. It seems that Colonial Dames offers changing website “specials”, so some products are on sale or on clearance.

- All Colonial Dames products are available online from the official website.
- Does nothing to stimulate collagen production.

- No full ingredient lists that we could find.
The Bottom Line
In our opinion, Colonial Dames Age Defying Complex doesn’t bring anything very new to the table. This product looks like a basic, affordable preventive skin care product. If you’re serious about treating wrinkles, it’s best to go with a product that actively boosts the body’s collagen production. As we age, collagen production slows, which is what can lead to find lines and wrinkles, especially on the face. Products that boost collagen production will restore a youthful texture to the skin and begin to noticeably soften these lines.
