|Elene Collagen Capsules Day Cream||
Elene Collagen Capsules Day Cream is a puzzling product. There are dozens of Elene skin care products available through online retailers but there is no apparent English-language website for this French skin care manufacturer. Online retailer websites have very little information presented about the product. It is said to protect the skin from UV rays, moisturize cells with NMF, and leave the skin refined and luminous. There is no description of what NMF is or what is in it, which is something we’d really like to know.
One would expect Elene Collagen Capsules Day Cream to be in capsule form but it appears to be strictly a cream. This might be confusing to consumers. Also, because there is no ingredient list available, it is impossible to determine if this product even contains collagen or whether it contains ingredients to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen. Because the product is not sold through the manufacturer, there is no official money-back guarantee if the product does not work for you or if it induces skin allergies.
Collagen is naturally found in skin. It helps keep skin toned and firm. As we age, our ability to produce collagen slows down, so facial skin droops and sags, allowing lines and wrinkles to form. Skin care products with collagen can replenish that natural collagen and stimulate the body’s own collagen production.
It is unknown whether Elene Collagen Capsules Day Cream contains collagen or not, even though the name implies it. The only ingredient listed on the online retailers’ websites that we found is called NMF, but there is no explanation of what that is. Those with skin sensitivities or skin allergies should be cautious of this product until they are able to review a complete ingredient list.
- May contain collagen.
- Available from online retailers.
- May not contain collagen.
- No full ingredient listing available.
- No official website apparent.

The Bottom Line
Because Elene does not appear to have an English-language website for its products, it is difficult to learn much about the company or the products. Higher-quality skin care developers will dedicate an entire website to their best products and include ingredients, benefits of each ingredient, customer testimonials, before and after pictures, and links to clinical studies showing the effectiveness of the active ingredients and of the product itself. None of that is apparent with Elene and it therefore is almost impossible to trust in the Elene Collagen Capsules Day Cream. Those with skin allergies should choose a product that is labeled non-allergenic. A good approach would be to seek out an anti-wrinkle product with proven ingredients like the peptides Matrixyl 3000 and Argiriline from companies that stand behind their formulations with a money-back guarantee.
