Fadezyme is a product designed to improve the appearance of the delicate skin around the eyes by eliminating dark circles and puffiness. According to online retailers who sell the product, the end result of using Fadezyme is “brighter, more youthful looking eyes”. The issues of fine lines and wrinkles do not seem to be addressed by the retailers of this product. This may be a concern for some consumers, since lines in the corners of the eyes, known commonly as crow’s feet, are often a focus for many wanting to turn back the clock on their eyes. However, we will explore the formula in Fadezyme to see precisely what benefits might be offered.
We were unable to find a product website for Fadezyme or a company website for the manufacturer of the product, MJL Stern Laboratories. We believe that companies who are professional and stand behind their product will ensure an official online presence that provides consumers with the ability to research and purchase their skin care line. The lack of such a presence is a possible red flag that the company may be riskier to work with. It also means that we could not find customer testimonials or a money back guarantee for Fadezyme. This leaves the customer to absorb all of the risk in purchasing a skin care product for the first time.
Based on information we obtained from some online retailers, the ingredients in Fadezyme are: Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Sorbitol, Aloe Barbadensis, Leaf Juice, Glycyrrhiza, Glabra Root Extract, Cucumber Fruit Extract, Matricaria Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract, Morus Abla Root Extract, Wpanax Ginseng Root Extract, Caffeine, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Xanthan Gum, Potassium, Hydroxide, PPG 5 Ceteth 20, Carbomer, Dmdm Hydantoin, Ethylparaben, Methylparaben, Chrysin, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide 3, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Hydroxyisohexy 3 Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Yellow 5, Blue 1, Benzyle Benzoate, Benzyl Salicylate, Citronellol, Hydroxycitronellol, Linalool, Fragrance.
We are happy to see peptide complexes like pamitoyl tetrapeptide 3 and palmitoyl oligopeptide in the Fadezyme mix. Palmitoyl tetrapeptide 3 can increase skin’s elasticity and tone, while palmitoyl oligopeptide, also known as matrixyl, can stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. However, there are other ingredients in this mix that we are not so pleased with. For example, ethylparaben and methylparaben are both included on this list. There have been some studies done on parabens that suggest that these substances may be potential carcinogens. We are also concerned about the possible allergens in the Fadezyme formula such as artificial fragrances and coloring agents that could cause reactions.
- Fadezyme includes some proven peptide complexes.
- There is no official online presence for the company or the product.
- We were unable to find a money back guarantee policy on purchases.
- There are artificial ingredients in the formula that could be harmful.
The Bottom Line
While Fadezyme does include some potentially potent ingredients, it also contains a few that could irritate sensitive skin or cause an allergic reaction. In addition, the company does not appear to have any sort of official online presence. We would advise consumers to look for professional companies that offer proven formulas without the potentially harmful ingredients in the mix.
