|Lexmo Renewal Cream||
Lexmo is a Malaysian company specializing in placental injections using sheep fetuses. According to the company’s website, these injections strengthen the immune system and help the body to regenerate cells. Lexmo also produces a line of skin care products including the Lexmo Cell Renewal Cream.
The Lexmo products do not appear to be available for sale on the company’s website and it is not clear where one can purchase them. There is no indication of a money-back guarantee if you are not happy with the Lexmo products. We also cannot find references to product samples that may be available. Trying out a product before purchase is especially important for those who have sensitive skin or skin allergies.
,p<>The Lexmo Cell Renewal Cream comes with many claims. According to Lexmo, it re-textures skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, clears up acne, corrects hyperpigmentation, and fixes ingrown hairs and large open pores. The full ingredient list for Lexmo Renewal Cream is: enzyme essence, pure Vitamin A and E, highly active placenta live cell, PHA (Polyhydroxy acid), and tartaric acid. We have a number of concerns with many of these ingredients. “Enzyme essence” unfortunately does not outline what enzymes are involved, which does not allow us to assess the possible effectiveness of this ingredient.
Vitamins A and E are commonly used in skin care formulations. Vitamin A (usually as retinol) has significant clinical proof of its benefits when taken internally but little research has been done on Vitamin A as a topical application. What we do know about Vitamin A is that it can trigger skin sensitivities in many users and can increase photo sensitivity (sensitivity to sunlight.) The placenta live cell simply has no information attached to it to support its effectiveness in a cream. The polyhydroxy acid and tartaric acid are sometimes used in skin care products to chemically peel the top layers of skin. They can be very drying to the skin and can also trigger skin sensitivities. Those with sensitive skin should exercise caution with this product before knowing how it will react to your particular skin type. Unfortunately, the company does not appear to offer product samples for customers to be able to try it out before purchasing.

The Bottom Line
There in nothing of particular interest in Lexmo Cell Renewal Cream. The only unusual ingredient, placenta cell, comes with no proof of its effectiveness in this type of formulation. Those seeking anti-aging skin care products may wish to seek one that has proven ingredients like Matrixyl 3000 and Argiriline. The best skin care companies will also stand behind their products with a money-back guarantee.
