Like many anti-wrinkle products available these days, Hydroderm makes the bold claim that it’s products are superior to Botox injections. Hydroderm is a product developer and retailer based out of Culver City, California. They currently claim that 750,000+ people have tried and loved their Hydroderm cream. The manufacturer claims that the thing that really helps Hydroderm stand out when compared to other anti-aging wrinkle treatments is that Hydroderm utilizes its own patented collagen delivery system, allowing “whole collagen molecules” to penetrate deep beneath the skin. Hydroderm Age-Defying Wrinkle Reducer is the manufacturer’s signature product, and they also offer an array of moisturizers, eye creams and exfoliants. The Hydroderm Age-Defying Wrinkle Reducer has been for sale since 2003.
Hydroderm Age-Defying Wrinkle Reducer actually claims that they are delivering “whole” collagen molecules directly to user’s skin. Furthermore, the makers imply that rival wrinkle treatments are only delivering “partial” molecules, resulting in less effective results. This is what they call the Hydroderm “whole collagen infusion system.” Application directions instruct users to gently rub Hydroderm into their skin twice daily. The manufacturers claim that, assuming proper use, users will see results within three weeks of their first application.
The first key ingredient in Hydroderm Age-Defying Wrinkle Reducer is the whole collagen infusion system. The manufacturers have paired this system up with a patented protein concentrate called Vyo-Serum. This serum is primarily a potent moisturizing agent, although it also claims to keep skin tightened. Essentially, the manufacturer claims that this Vyo-Serum works in tandem with the whole collagen infusion system and helps to preserve the cream’s results.
Additional ingredients found in Hydroderm Age-Defying Wrinkle Reducer are: Distilled water, Cephene, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Synasol, Purified water, Sodium Methylparaben, Imidezolidinyl Urea, Trisodium EDTA, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid and Ascorbic Acid.

- No money back guarantee seems to be offered.
The Bottom Line
We were initially intrigued by the Hydroderm Age-Defying Wrinkle Reducer’s claims to boost natural collagen product. After all, collagen is nearly synonymous with young, healthy skin. However, we were ultimately dismayed by the lack of information available. We would love to know some details about this system, and also about the companion ingredient Vyo-Serum. It would be nice if the manufacturers also provided product trials or other clinical data to back up their formula. The Hydroderm Age-Defying Wrinkle Reducer seems to retail for $79.95 from the official website, landing it in the upper-middle price range for wrinkle treatments. We do appreciate that they give users a 30 day trial period, but if it typically takes three weeks before you see results, we’d probably prefer a no questions asked money back guarantee.
