The GlyDerm product line carries a variety of skin care products and Hydrotone is one of those products. There is an official GlyDerm website offering information on the Hydrotone product. The website also provides contact information and prices on the products in the GlyDerm line.
GlyDerm Hydrotone sells for $16.20 per 1.5 ounces on the GlyDerm website. There are 5 reviews listed on the website for the Hydrotone product and all 5 reviews give the product 5 stars out of 5. However, when looking into the reviews – two are spam reviews with the user name as a long list of letters. One claims the ingredients include something that causes cancer and is asking for research on the prodcut and the remaining two love the product they are using.
According to the GlyDerm website, the Hydrotone is a skin moisturizer best used in conjunction with the GlyDerm cleanser. The Hydrotone ingredients are Water, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Cetearyl Alcohol, Propylene Glycol, Isopropyl Palmitate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Diazolidinyl Urea and Propylparaben.
The ingredient list does not appear to contain any ingredients having antiaging qualities. As a matter of fact, with Alcohol and Mineral Oil in the mix, people who have sensitive skin or skin prone to pimples may experience breakouts from using this product.
Looking more closely at the website, there are no clinical trials of studies listed to prove the GlyDerm Hydrotone works better than any other facial moisturizer on the market. While the facial moisturizer is priced within a normal range for fine skin care products – there is no real reason to choose the GlyDerm Hydrotone over a traditional moisturizer.
- The GlyDerm Hydrotone can be ordered directly from the website.
- The website provides a small amount of information on the product.
- The complete ingredient list is offered online.
- There are no studies listed to back up the claims on the website.
- The GlyDerm Hydrotone does not include antiaging ingredients in the formula.
- Mineral Oil and Alcohol could cause irritation and breakouts.
The Bottom Line
GlyDerm is an established and trusted skin care product line. The company runs a professional website, but the Hydrotone product falls short in the antiaging market. We cannot support using the GlyDerm Hydrotone as an antiaging skin care product because the ingredients do not support the user of Hydrotone in any manner other than as a moisturizer. Aside from the lack of antiaging ingredients, the reviews include spam and a user asking for research on the product. The reviews span over the last two years which means people are not flocking to the website to boast on the products effectiveness.
