Lavera was founded in 1987 by Thomas Haase. Mr. Haase had dermatitis since he was a toddler and grew up using topical creams made from synthetic ingredients. He suffered many different skin irritations and as he got older he decided it was time to create a better product for himself, as well as for others with sensitive skin. Lavera means “the truth” and this name is claimed to be a representation of the company’s commitment to use very pure and organic ingredients.
Lavera has a complete line of products that were specifically created to care for people who suffer from allergies and have sensitive skin. The official Lavera website claims that Lavera was ranked #1 in 2008 by a consumer reporting magazine, Oeko-Test, based in Germany. Lavera’s official website uses a different approach when it comes to recommending skin care regimens for potential users. They have anti-aging and skin care regimens for skin 30 and up, 40 and up, and 50 and up. There are many different categories on the Lavera website that range from bath to hair to makeup products. There is even a men’s category.
As far as the anti-aging department goes, Lavera offers a few different products under the product line Lavere. These include lifting serums, cleansers, moisturizers, and creams. Let’s take a closer look at the Lifting Serum Hydro-Gel.
The Lifting Serum Hydro-Gel claims to improve the firmness of skin by over 90%. This product contains many different anti-oxidants as well as hyaluronic acid to help moisturize the skin and fight free radicals at the same time.
Though the ingredients aren’t listed on the official website, they are posted on third party sites. The Lavere Lifting Serum Hydro-Gel contains: Water (Aqua), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice*, Sodium Lactate, Glycerin, Alcohol, Saccharide Isomerate, Glucose Glutamate, Lecithin, Bambusa Vulgaris Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Rhizobian Gum, Sodium Hyaluronate, Xantham Gum, Fragrance (Parfum), Benzyl Salicylate, Citronellol, Geraniol, Limonene, Linalool.

The Bottom Line
The use of all natural ingredients and having products specifically designed for those with allergies and sensitive skin is very nice. The website is very informative and states Lavera’s goals and passions clearly. The ingredients should be prominently listed, but Lavera only seems to hint at what is in each product. We like how specialized Lavera products are and the fact that they use all natural ingredients, but it might be a good idea to find some anti-aging products that utilize some of today’s more potent wrinkle fighters and have cutting edge peptides clearly posted in the product ingredient lists.
