|Life Without Wrinkles||
Life without Wrinkles is a product by iQ Derma, a company that claims to use a high concentration of “intelligent” ingredients. The company defines intelligent ingredients as substances that have been scientifically proven to act with your body’s natural processes to produce healthier, younger looking skin. It is recommended that most products are given four to six weeks before full benefits are seen. This company provides a number of skin care lines, including one for anti-aging. One such product, Life without Wrinkles, promises to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles while protecting skin from the harmful rays of the sun. We will take a closer look at this formula to see if it can deliver on these promises.
The product is sold through the iQ Derma website and through a number of online retailers. At the time of this review, a one-ounce container of the day cream sells for about $45, putting this product in the mid-price range for comparable formulas. We are pleased to see the iQ Derma does provide an unconditional money back guarantee on all purchases.
Unfortunately, the iQ Derma website does not provide complete ingredient lists for their products. We find this to be concerning, since consumers need this information to determine a product’s safety and effectiveness. We were able to find a complete list on the website of a retailer selling this product. The active ingredients listed were all substances used for sun protection, making us wonder if Life without Wrinkles was more about preventing wrinkles than making present lines disappear.
Other ingredients in the formula include Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3. Palmitoyl oligopeptide is also known as matrixyl, a substance that has been proven to stimulate collagen production in the skin and eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-3 is also found in many anti-aging formulas because it is thought to support collagen production. However, tests have not been as conclusive with this substance. We would prefer to see proven anti-winkle ingredients like argireline and hyaluronic acid to support the function of the matrixyl in this formula, but these ingredients were not found on the list.
- Life without Wrinkles is affordable and readily available.
- The company does provide a money back guarantee.
- The formula includes the proven anti-wrinkle agent matrixyl.
- Not much information about the company or clinical research was included.
- The company does not appear to offer free trials of this particular product.
- The company does not post a complete ingredient list for products.
- Life without Wrinkles does not contain argireline or hyaluronic acid.
The Bottom Line
For the price, Life without Wrinkles may provide adequate wrinkle treatment and sun protection at the same time. However, we believe there are other formulas in the same price range that will include other proven wrinkle ingredients, like argireline and hyaluronic acid for a better value for your anti-aging dollar.
