|EpiElegance Skin Firming C Serum||
Epi-Elegance markets a number of skin care products through online retailers, but an official website for the company does not appear to be available. We were able to locate only a few online retailers who carry the Epi-Elegance Skin Firming C Serum product, so there is a possibility that it is being discontinued.
The Epi-Elegance Skin Firming C Serum is marketed by online retailers as a product that firms aging skin and repairs environmental damage. According to the retailers, it contains a more stable form of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is generally unstable in solution and loses its potency quickly so it is positive to hear that the stability issue has been addressed in this EpiElegance product. Unfortunately, no full ingredient list appears to be available so it is difficult to assess the effectiveness of the formulation. It also means that the Epi-Elegance Skin Firming C Serum could also contain lower quality ingredients and “fillers”. Those with skin allergies and sensitivities should exercise caution when using this product until you know how it will react with your particular skin makeup.
Very little information is available regarding the Epi-Elegance Skin Firming C Serum. It is reportedly based on a more stable form of Vitamin C that may make it last longer than the usual 4-6 weeks before losing its potency. Vitamin C has been clinically proven to provide antioxidant benefits to the skin by removing free radicals that can damage skin.
However, the best skin care products that have been clinically-proven to firm and repair aging skin contain some of the following ingredients: hyaluronic acid for deep hydration, collagen for skin elasticity and peptides like Matrixyl 3000 and Argiriline for stimulating collagen production and reducing wrinkles. The Epi-Elegance Skin Firming C Serum does not appear to contain any of these ingredients.
- Contains a more stable form of Vitamin C.
- No official web presence located.
- No money-back guarantee apparent.
- Does not contain other proven anti-wrinkle ingredients.
- Difficult to locate online retailers that carry the product.
The Bottom Line
There are many Vitamin C serums in the anti-aging skin care arena today. It is certainly difficult to recommend one whose company does not have an official website and who doesn’t stand behind its product with a money-back guarantee. Although Vitamin C is an effective ingredient when used in the correct formulation, there is not enough information available to be able to assess the effectiveness of EpiElegance Skin Firming C Serum. At a retail price of around $63, there are many other options available to consumers. If you are seeking an anti-aging or anti-wrinkle product, look for one that contains clinically-proven ingredients and that displays studies to support the product’s claims.
