|Leaf & Rusher||
Leaf & Rusher is another line of “natural” skin care products that claims to work better on aging skin than other products because natural ingredients are more effective. However, there are many high-quality and low-quality natural products on the market, so we will examine the Leaf & Rusher line to see how well it might be able to live up to its claims. The Leaf & Rusher products are split into four segments: Original Tx, DNAResolve, DermalDelivery, and Tx Acne 1.2.3. The Original Tx line includes toners, cleansers, moisturizers, and serums that are formulated to provide dramatic professional results, according to the company’s website.
Leaf & Rusher skin care products are available for purchase on the company’s website. We were unable to find any reference to a money-back guarantee, which is a feature that we look for in skin care products. Also, there do not appear to be product samples available.
The Leaf & Rusher skin care line is based on botanicals such as green tea extract and seaweed, along with Vitamins A, C, and E. These are ingredients that we find quite often in natural skin care products. Green tea extract is commonly used as an antioxidant. Most research to date has focused on green tea’s beneficial properties when taken internally. There is very little research on the benefits of applying green tea topically.
Vitamins A, C, and E, which are also used in Leaf & Fusher, are also common ingredients in many skin care lines. They may or may not have benefits for the skin based on their concentrations, however, Leaf & Rusher does not provide enough information on its website to allow us to determine whether these might be beneficial. This line does not appear to contain clinically-proven anti-aging ingredients like collagen, which replenishes the skin’s natural supply, or Argiriline which relaxes facial muscles and smoothes wrinkles. What concerns us most about the Leaf & Rusher skin care products is their lack of full disclosure of ingredients. This means that those with skin sensitivities and allergies will have a difficult time assessing whether these products will be appropriate for them. It also doesn’t allow consumers to evaluate the effectiveness of the formulations or determine whether there may be lower-quality “fillers” included.

The Bottom Line
The word “natural” is a trendy one in the skin care product marketplace today. However, natural is not the same thing as effective. There is nothing that excites us in the active ingredients listed in the Leaf & Rusher products. The fact that the company does not disclose all of its ingredients makes it difficult to recommend. If you are seeking an anti-wrinkle or anti-aging skin care product, look for one with proven ingredients like collagen, Matrixyl 3000 or Argiriline. The best of these products will be backed by a money-back guarantee.
