Dove ProAge Day Moisturizer product is one that has been a mainstay of the Dove line for a number of years. Now it is time to take a thorough look at the ingredients in this moisturizer. We are going to determine if this cosmetic product is really effective at performing those claims of reducing fine lines and facial wrinkles.

Product Details

There are statements made on one of the websites that report Dove ProAge to be an excellent moisturizer to use to combat dull, lusterless skin, darkened spots that appear with age and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. The claim says this is not one of the common “skin preparations.”

The list of active ingredients includes Octinoxate (6.00%), Zinc Oxide (2.00%), and Glycerin. Let’s take a look inside these scientific names to discover what purpose each ingredient serves…or if they serve any useful purpose at all.

Octinoxate a key ingredient used in many commercial sun block formulas. Zinc Oxide is another ingredient that is added to many sun block preparations and it is a barrier to the UVA sun rays.

Then we come to the Glycerin that is used in Dove ProAge. It is purportedly used as a moisturizer. Many people are not thrilled about using Glycerin as a moisturizer. While there are those who think this ingredient is a useful moisturizer, others believe that Glycerin removes the available moisture from the skin. There is a good reason for this idea, if you place pure Glycerin out in the open it will absorb moisture from the air to become 8/10 Glycerin and 2/10 water. A small bit of this substance on a person’s tongue will absorb the moisture and leave a blister behind due to intense dehydration.

Another of the ingredients mentioned in Dove ProAge but listed as inactive is Dimethicone. Researchers have discovered that this inactive ingredient causes burning, stinging and urticaria in lab tests. When Dimethicone is mixed with Zinc, it can create more intense side effects including rashes, hives, respiratory problems, chest pain, swelling of the tongue, face, and lips, and generalized burning and irritation.

The Good

  • Dove ProAge is a skin product that has ingredients that make it useful as a sun block preparation.

The Bad

  • This product has ingredients with a track record of irritation.
  • Does not have any “proven” ingredients to back the claims.
  • Some of the ingredients can create severe allergic reactions or painful side effects.
  • The Glycerin moisturizer in Dove ProAge may dehydrate the skin instead.
  • Consumers have repeatedly noted an unpleasant smell with the product.

The Bottom Line

Normally when anyone sees the name “Dove ProAge”, they will think of anti-wrinkle, youth renewing products. This one product appears to have nothing in common with facial rejuvenation and fine line diminishment. It seems as though it is best suited as a possible sunscreen. Glycerin is supposed to be the active moisturizer agent and even that claim is still debatable. It would seem that the respected Dove name would be placed on a product containing safe, well-researched ingredients that really worked. It is very unsettling to see that mixing two of this product’s ingredients (Dimethicone and Zinc) are known to create severe and dangerous reactions. Many consumers who use Dove ProAge will be displeased or disappointed by the effectiveness of this highly touted anti-aging product. It is still not clear how these ingredients could ever provide any help with lessening the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles.
