|Dr. Feders Younger Now And Forever||
Dr. Feder’s Younger Now and Forever skin care line comes from this eponymous New York plastic surgeon, Dr. Lewis Feder. The Dr. Feder Younger Now and Forever group of products includes Facial Therapy, Super Peel, Eye Renewal, LifTight, and Sta-Tight. The LifTight is marketed as being able to erase lines and crow’s feet in under two minutes. The Sta-Tight claims to be a Botox alternative that relaxes facial muscles over a three to four week period to reduces deeper lines and wrinkles. The Sta-Tight product includes hexapeptides, which we will look at in more depth in the Product Details section.
The Dr. Feder’s Younger Now and Forever Skin Care line is sold as a package on television infomercials and through as-seen-on-TV websites. Individual products are sold on the official Dr. Lewis Feder website, but are not packaged together in the same configurations. The Dr. Feder website specifically states that “Dr. Feder’s products are neither returnable nor refundable under New York State Health Department regulations.” That means that there is no money-back guarantee on any of the Dr. Feder skin care products, including Dr. Feder Younger Now And Forever.
One of the most surprising things about the Dr. Feder’s Younger Now and Forever skin care line is the lack of detail on any of the websites we found about what is actually in the products. There is no full ingredient list, even on Dr. Feder’s website, and in some cases, even the active ingredients are not disclosed. This concerns us for a number of reasons. The main one is that those with sensitive skin or allergies will have a very difficult time determining if these products are appropriate for them because they will not know what synthetic colors, fragrances, or preservatives are in the formulations.
Another reason why knowing what’s in a skin care product is important is to be able to determine the effectiveness and the quality of the product. The best anti-wrinkle products contain peptides, such as Matrixyl 3000 and Argiriline, which have been clinically tested and proven effective. There is no indication that the Dr. Feder Younger Now and Forever products have these ingredients, although the Sta-Tight product refers to hexapeptides. There simply isn’t enough information available to be able to assess the claims.

The Bottom Line
It is very difficult to recommend a skin care line of products when the manufacturer not only does not provide a full list of ingredients prior to purchase, but they also do not stand behind the product with a money-back guarantee. Those who have skin allergies or sensitivities may want to avoid the Dr. Feder’s Younger Now and Forever line until they can obtain and review a full ingredient list. There are many skin care products on the market targeted specifically to reducing and eliminating wrinkles. It is recommended that, when figuring out a long-term skincare regimen, you choose a company that uses high-quality proven ingredients and offers samples before purchase and a satisfaction guarantee after purchase.
