|Godiva Anti-Aging Skin Care||
Godiva Anti-aging Skin Care is a Philippine company that offers a range of personal care products. The company offers creams for dry skin, whitening ointments and lotions for acne, as well as anti-aging creams. However, recently the beauty firm has entered the field of anti-aging and now offers a number of anti-aging creams like the Godiva Anti Aging Skin Care Age Spot Lightening set, Face and Neck Firming cream, Godiva Fruit acid cream, Vitamin C serum, Green Tea Sun block and many others. In each case, it is claimed that regular use of these products can lead to a younger looking skin tone that is firm, smooth, and beautiful. Further, it is claimed that your fine lines and wrinkles will never come back.
Godiva Anti Aging Skin Care has a very long history in the Far East. The company was one of the first to use licorice extracts as a whitening agent and it then blossomed into a cosmetic company which now only uses natural ingredients.
The ingredients in Godiva Anti Aging Skin Care are listed for most products, include the following:
Active Ingredients: Centella Asiatica (Hydrocotyl) Extract, Echinacea Purpurea (Coneflower) Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Extract and Zinc Oxide, Propylene Glycol, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetyl Alcohol, Squalane, Allantoin, Stearic Acid, Carbomer, Methyl Paraben, Propyl Paraben, BHT, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate. Propylene Glycol, Glycerin, Sodium PCA, Sodium Citrate, Tetrasodium EDTA, Polysorbate-20, Imidazolidinyl Urea.
Other Godiva Skin Care formulations appear to have similar ingredients like: Fruit Acid from Sugar Cane Extract, Citrus Extract, Apple Extract and Green Tea Extract. Also contains: Water, Zinc Oxide, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetyl Alcohol, Trumethylpentanediol/Adipic Acid Copolymer, Triethanolamine, Squalane, Ceteareth and Stearyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Octanoate, Methyl Paraben, Propyl Paraben.
Most of the ingredients are naturally occurring but we see a lot of synthetic chemicals as well.
- Decent website and comprehensive.
- Good skincare reviews.
- Believes that the customer should know ingredients.
- Located in the Philippines, which could make it difficult to import.
- Relatively expensive.
- Formulations do contain a lot of synthetic chemicals.
- Exorbitant claims not backed by special ingredients
The Bottom Line
Godiva Anti Aging Skin Care is a decent cosmetic firm that offers a range of products. The company is located in the Far East but I am sure with the number of Philippine immigrants in the USA, there are ample spas which sell Godiva Anti Aging products. While most products are cheap, some are relatively expensive. When it comes to anti-aging, Godiva does market a few creams and serums but there is nothing special about the ingredients. Even though there are a lot of natural ingredients in the formulations, it does not mean that they have anti-aging properties. On the positive side, the website is very comprehensive and does give good information on a number of skin disorders like stretch marks, warts, freckles, varicose veins and so on. I doubt any North American consumer would order the products online from the Philippines. Godiva Anti Aging Skin Care can do itself a big favor by having names of dealers or spas that sell its products in North America. I do not think that any of the formulas listed have any anti-aging ability but if you were to visit a Philipino run spa anywhere in the US, you may want to see if you can get a sample first.
