Eb5 is a facial cream developed by Robert Heldfond. Heldfond is a noted pharmacist and a chemist based in Portland, Oregon. Eb5 was created in the 1950’s as an ointment base formula that allowed topical medicine to be applied to skin more effectively than the greasy ointments that had been used previously. In the 1980’s, more vitamins and other beneficial ingredients were added to the formula to make it even more effective.
EB5 is now sold all over the place and you can find it on the Internet, as well as at many retail and department stores in your area. EB5 is billed as a combination of five creams in one formula. The cream elements incorporated into EB5 are: wrinkle cream, firming cream, makeup base, neck cream, and a 24-hour moisturizer.
In addition to the standard EB5 cream, there are many other branded products available on the official website. These range from a cellulite cream to assorted bath and beauty products. There is a very handy “sold in stores” area on the official website that lets you find out what retailer near you carries EB5 products. There is also a thirty-day money back guarantee if you don’t like any of the EB5 products.
The most popular product available from EB5 is the facial cream. This comes in a two or four ounce jar and is reasonably priced at $10 per ounce.

The Bottom Line
EB5 bills itself as the only facial cream you will ever need to buy. It’s supposed to firm and hydrate the skin and combat aging, but it doesn’t have any proven cutting edge wrinkle fighters or skin firmers in the list of ingredients. EB5 doesn’t separate itself very well from the standard facial creams that you can buy at any local drug store, and the cream doesn’t advertise very much. Maybe this is because they are very confident that the brand’s popularity will spread through word of mouth and that the product doesn’t need advertising. We like the price of this product but it just doesn’t stand out in a market saturated with more effective, specialized wrinkle fighting products.
