Louise Bianco is a line of skincare products based on holistic practices developed by Louise Bianco, who became interested in skincare during her work as a weight control counselor. She states she learned about how skin was affected by nutritional factors during that time, and decided to apply these techniques to her skincare products as a revolutionary way to treat skin ailments. Currently the Louise Bianco skincare line features serums, creams, and cleansers infused with amino peptides, papaya enzymes, retinol, and antioxidants, which are believed to promote elasticity and skin improvement.
The clear difference between Louise Bianco and other products is its completely all-natural approach to skin (fragrances are eliminated from its creams, and they do not test on animals) and a diverse selection for all skin types, ranging from acne-prone skin to “mature” and sensitive skin types. They also clearly list what each key ingredient is supposedly intended to do in a scientific and holistic sense. Additionally, they offer product lines catering to different skin ailments, from sagging skin to deep down moisturization. Their Vitamin Treatments Line is the line that specifically targets wrinkles and fine lines. Each product is priced under $80 also, so it is not too expensive — but probably not the cheapest product available. Let’s review Louise Bianco’s ingredients in-depth.
According to their website, Louise Bianco’s Vitamin Treatments line contains various ingredients, including Vitamin C, Pentavitin, and Hyaluronic Acid. Vitamin C is not new to the skincare market, and it is featured extensively in “all-natural” creams as a better component than Vitamin D, supposedly promoting collagen growth and allowing skin to naturally tighten. In truth, Vitamin C is not that effective. Certain studies do say it helps improve the skin’s ability to regenerate, but this can only be gained by consuming it, not applying it. Some research indicates that consumers will have better luck eating oranges than seeing any results from topical Vitamin C cream. Hyaluronic Acid is another important component more effective than Vitamin C, and it has been recognized for its abilities to heal skin tissue for decades. The FDA recently approved its use in injection form, but no studies specify if it has the same effect when applied. Nevertheless this is a very intriguing ingredient and should delight consumers.
Louise Bianco’s products may have some scientific backing, but generally speaking, one effective ingredient is not enough to promote overall skin health.
- Contains Hyaluronic Acid, which is shown to heal skin tissue.
- An extensive product line and safe ingredients will appeal to consumers.
- Vitamin C has little proven effect when applied topically.
- It is debated if Hyaluronic Acid is effective when used as a cream – it is usually injected to eliminate wrinkles.
- It is probably not the best choice for consumers on a budget.
The Bottom Line
When it comes to proper, safe skin care Louise Bianco definitely has some credibility, but the real science is where this company dwindles. There are a few key ingredients which may provide wrinkle relief, but many other ingredients provide little or no benefit – definitely something consumers don’t need. There are definitely worse products out there, however.
