Face Gum is a product from Andrea Abbott, a cosmetic company located in Canada. Unfortunately, there does not appear to be any information currently available for Andrea Abbott or for the Face Gum that the company offered. We did find information on other websites in regards to the product, and we primarily had to go with that information for the purpose of this review. Andrea Abbott Face Gum may still be available through online auction houses and resale websites, so we feel that it is important to educate consumers about the pros and cons of this product to the best of our ability.
We would first like to caution consumers against purchasing products from companies that no longer appear to have an official online presence. This may mean that the company’s products did not sell well or even that the products were deemed ineffective or even potentially dangerous. We suspect that this may very well be the case with the Andrea Abbott Face Gum. According to some websites, this product was designed as an exfoliation treatmet, used to slough off the top layer of dead, dry skin cells, leaving smoother, younger-looking skin underneath. The company claims that their Face Gum can exfoliate the skin safely and effectively, without irritation or flakiness.
Based on information from other websites, it appears that the Andrea Abbott Face Gum contains few effective anti-aging ingredients, and may include some substances that are potentially harmful. We are specifically referring to a variety of parabens that seem to be in the formula. While parabens have not been banned by the FDA at the time of this review, some studies have suggested a link between high levels of paraben use and some types of cancer. We believe it is best to avoid parabens in skin care products as much as possible.
Besides the possibility of parabens in the formula, we would strongly caution consumers from purchasing any skin care products where full ingredient lists are not disclosed. This information is essential in determining the effectiveness and safety of products. We always look for proven anti-aging substances like matrixyl, argireline, soluble collagen and hyaluronic acid. Without a complete ingredient list included for the Andrea Abbott Face Gum, we are unable to ascertain whether the product contains any of these substances.
- The Andrea Abbott Face Gum is a topical solution designed as an exfoliation treatment.
- The company appears to no longer have an official online presence.
- Consumers may be unable to find the product for sale online or otherwise.
- The lack of information suggests that Andrea Abbott may no longer be in business.
The Bottom Line
There may be a good reason why information on the Andrea Abbott Face Gum is sketchy at best. The fact that an online presence is no longer available for the company may suggest that the products were below quality standard or possibly dangerous or ineffective in some way. We would urge consumers to look for current, proven products and companies for all of their skin care needs.
