|Esthederm Bio Youth||
The Esthederm Bio Youth line of skin care is offered by Institut Esthederm, a Paris-based company that claims to provide a new approach to skin care. This particular company appears to market their products through sales points across the globe, although there does not appear to be any locations in the United States to choose from. The products are also apparently used in many spas, mostly those located overseas.
Since the Esthederm Bio Youth products do not seem to be available through online retailers or locations within the United States, the first problem may be obtaining these items in the first place. Therefore, we will explore whether the products would make the necessary research worth the time and effort for the consumer to get a hold of them. Fortunately, the Institut Esthederm website provides adequate information to help us make such a determination.
According to the Institut Esthederm website, the Esthederm Bio Youth line includes the Absolute Serum Lift, Restructure Day and Night Cream and an Eye Contour Gel Cream. For the purpose of this review, we will take a closer look at the Absolute Serum Lift, since it promises to “instantly halt” fine lines and wrinkles. The ingredients listed for this product include milk bio-peptides, matrixyl, centella asiatica, silicon, superoxide dismutase, vitamin C derivative, apple oligonucleotides, blackberry leaf extract, vitamin E and creatine. The final ingredient listed for this serum is cellular water; an ingredient that is said to have been created by Institut Esthederm in 1999 to more closely resemble the natural water in our skin.
It is important to note that the Insitut Esthederm products are said to work by getting underneath the surface of the skin to teach this large organ to repair itself. The company refers to the skin as an ecosystem and supposedly works with the natural seasons and cycles of the skin to heal and repair it at a cellular level. While this sounds good, we are skeptical that the formula list we are looking at for the Esthederm Bio Youth serum will really deliver so much with such basic ingredients. However, we are pleased to see matrixyl in the mix, and believe this ingredient can have some effect on wrinkles – even if it is not to the degree that Institut Esthederm promises.
- The product contains matrixyl.
- It is difficult to find the Esthederm Bio Youth line available for sale in the US.
- The company makes grand claims that the formulas do not seem to back up.
- We could not find customer testimonials for the Esthederm Bio Youth line.
The Bottom Line
Since sales of Esthoderm Bio Youth in the US appears to be greatly limited, the facts about the line may be a moot point for many consumers. We believe there are many good formulas that can provide positive results and that are more readily available for purchase for customers across the globe through Internet sales options.
