Cuticura has been in the business of cosmesis longer than most similar companies. Over the years, Cuticura has become quite well known for it extensive line of skincare and beauty products, the most famous of which are the medicated soaps. In the last few years, Cuticura has transformed from hand products to a long line of hair, face and body care creams. Cuticura products are widely available in most departmental stores and are affordable. One of the latest Cuticura product that is being advertised is the Hydrating Facial Moisturizer. This multi-function products is claimed to treat minor skin disorders like minor burns, abrasions, lacerations, allergic rashes, and is also claimed to revitalize the skin at the same time. Cuticura claims that daily use of this product can help nourish and replenish new skin so that it appears refreshing, appealing, soft and soothing. Other related Cuticura products include the hand sanitizer, medicated face wash, and makeup removers.

The Cuticura website does mention that it’s new avant-garden manufacturing and warehouse facilities have helped in the creation of these novel products.

Product Ingredients

Unfortunately, Cuticura does not mention all of the ingredients that go into their individual products. The chief ingredients include Aloe Vera, unknown antioxidants and phenol.

Phenol is a frequent ingredient in skincare products. It has the ability to kill micro-organisms and can help clean the skin. Phenol is sometimes used as a peeling agent, but because it has profound side effects, its use is limited. In small concentration, phenol can help remove dead skin and help stimulate the growth of new skin cells. Aloe Vera is most likely responsible for the healing properties of Cuticura products. While Cuticura does contain some “anti oxidants” it is hard to make any judgments on the product unless one knows more about these.

The Good

  • Widely available.
  • Relatively inexpensive.
  • Favorable testimonials.

The Bad

  • Ingredients not listed.
  • No clinical trials.
  • No photos.
  • No specific anti-aging formulas to treat wrinkles.

The Bottom Line

Cuticura does not claim that its products can eliminate fine lines/wrinkles, and the brand’s products are not designed to reverse aging. Cuticura has long established itself as a maker of decent moisturizing creams, medicated soaps, and ointments that can rapidly heal minor skin injuries. The ingredients are very basic and both Aloe Vera and phenol probably play a role in infection control. Depending on the concentration of phenol, it may also work as a peeling agent. Cuticura products are for everyday use on the hands and body. The one group of individuals who may benefit from Cuticura are health care professionals and individuals who work in a health-based environment. The constant washing of the hands leads to dryness and Cuticura acts both as a moisturizer and has anti-bacterial lotion. However, for diminishing facial wrinkles, you’d be best looking elsewhere.

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Rejuval Skin is our top choice.

Editor's Review: 4.6 / 5.0

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this! Vivexin is an anti-aging, eye treatment formulated to lighten dark circles, lessen the appearance of bags under the eyes and minimize fine lines and crow's feet associated with premature skin aging. The three active ingredients in Vivexin - Haloxyl, Eyeliss and Matrixyl - are backed with clinical research and positive consumer testimonials.
