Kara Vita Review

Overview

The Kara Vita product line is one that may provide some competition for other antiaging companies. The company specializes in Antiaging Treatments, Body Care, Fragrance, Acne Care and Sun Skin Care. The Antiaging product line is concise with not too many products and there are ingredient listings for each formula showing promising ingredient choices.

The Kara Vita product line is rather expensive with the antiaging line varying in price from $16.00 for a small tube of hand cream to $90.00 for 1 ounce of firming complex. There is no place to order the product on the website because the online store link is not working.

Product Features

In order to best judge an antiaging line like that of Kara Vita, the ingredients must be listed – including the non-active ingredients. Kara Vita only provides the Key Ingredients in their solutions. This is not a good practice, especially for people with sensitive ski. The Key Ingredients in the Up Tight Firming Peptide Complex include Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 (Argireline), Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 (Matrixyl 3000), Acetyl Tetrapeptide-9 (Dermican), Argania Spinosa Kernel Extract and Rumex Occidentalis Extract. We like the inclusion of Matrixyl 3000 and Argireline, but without any knowledge of the fillers, alcohols or oils used in the complex it is hard to judge skin reaction. The product is not listed as hypo-allergenic which is true of all the Kara Vita antiaging products.

Another negative to a product that seems to include good ingredients is the lack of clinical data referenced on the website. There have been clinical trials for some of the included ingredients, why are these not included on the website. This could mean there is not enough of the beneficial ingredients to affect the antiaging benefits.

The Good

  • A few of the ingredients listed are proven to improve the look of the skin.
  • Contact information is provided on the website.
  • There is an official website for the Kara Vita product lines.

The Bad

  • The product will not be available until May 1st.
  • All of the ingredients are not listed on the website.
  • The price for the products is higher than comparable products.
  • The online store link is not working.

The Bottom Line

The Kara Vita antiaging products include some beneficial ingredients, but the ingredient list does not divulge all of the ingredients which could mean some users may be prone to reactions from other ingredients not listed. This is a huge oversight by the Kara Vita company. The online store link is not working and the most beneficial products are not available until May. We cannot support an antiaging product, no matter how good the ingredients, unless they provide information and support to the consumer.
