The Evan Healy skin care line was developed with the theory that skin needs to breathe, which is why the line includes all natural ingredients that are certified organic whenever possible. The founder of the company, aesthetician Evan Healy, says that allowing the skin to repair itself through ingredients from nature is the best way to help the skin achieve balance and ward off the effects of aging. The skin care line includes a number of products that are stated to be acceptable for all skin types. These include cleansers, tonics, moisturizers, creams and serums.
The Evan Healy website is fairly easy to navigate and comprehensive in the information it provides about each of the products. We are happy to see that the company has chosen to disclose complete ingredient lists for all of the products, since this allows savvy consumers to make the best choices about their skin care. The products contain numerous herbal extracts, vitamins and other nutrients to feed the skin. However, we believe that women can get these essential nutrients through diet and supplementation and that there are more effective substances that can be used in skin care. It does appear that the company offers a return policy on all purchases, but we could not find any customer testimonials listed on the website.
For the purpose of this review, we will look at the Evan Healy Sea Algae Serum. This product claims to replenish skin and is recommended for use with the French Rose Clay product for an anti-aging regimen. The ingredients in the Sea Algae Serum include Sea mineral complex including Hawaiian red marine, laminaria digitata and blue green algae extracts, aloe vera gel, seaweed extract, glycosaminoglycans, honey, soybean protein, green tea, thyme, sea buckthorn, gotu kola, horsetail extracts (silica), vitamin E and pure essential oils of lavender, tea tree, clary sage and geranium.
While we appreciate that Evan Healy provides numerous natural ingredients in this formula, we were disappointed that the mix did not include any proven anti-aging substances. While this serum is to be used to protect and soften skin, we prefer to see hyaluronic acid used for such a purpose. To eliminate lines and wrinkles, we like to see ingredients like argireline and matrixyl added to the mix. This formula is loaded with antioxidants that can protect the skin from damage but won’t do much to reduce or eliminate damage and aging that already exists.
- The products are made with all natural ingredients.
- Evan Healy sells the products on the company website.
- No proven anti-aging ingredients are included in the formula.
- We were unable to find customer testimonials supporting the effectiveness of the products.
- There are numerous products available, some with similar formulas, which makes it tricky to figure out which one might be best.
The Bottom Line
If you are strictly looking for skin protection, Evan Healy provides products loaded with antioxidants and other types of nutrients. However, if you are hoping to diminish the signs of aging that have already occurred, we believe that there are more effective formulas available than those in the Evan Healy product line.
