The official website for the product manufacturing company Merino tells us that the company was founded in New Zealand in 1980. Merino manufactures a range of generally healthy skin care products as well as anti-aging products. One of the main anti-aging products in the Merino range is the Merino Collagen Cream. This seems to be their featured anti-aging offering.

Product Details

The official website for the Merino Collagen Cream tells us that this anti-aging cream will replace collagen in your skin with new, flexible collagen. We know as we age that the amount of collagen produced by the body decreases and that this can lead to signs of aging such as lines and wrinkles. Merino is certainly not the only company that produces anti-aging creams that contain marine collagen. There is some debate, however, as to whether marine collagen applied topically can be properly absorbed by the skin. The official website does not tell us why the manufacturers of the Merino Collagen Cream believe their product to be more effective than other anti-aging creams on the market which contain marine collagen.

The other ingredients in the cream include Vitamin E and parabens. Unfortunately some cancer experts are of the opinion that parabens are carcinogenic and it is for this reason that there are a number of manufacturers of skin care products that no longer include parabens as preservative ingredients in their products. The Merino Collagen Cream can be ordered directly from the official website. However, there does not seem to be an offer of a free trial sample, nor is there an offer of a money back guarantee upon purchase of a product within the Merino range.

The Good

  • There is an official website for the Merino range of skincare products.
  • Full and comprehensive ingredient details are given for the products.
  • Contact details are given on the website to enable you to contact a representative of the company.

The Bad

  • The Merino Collagen Cream is not the only anti-aging cream on the market which contains Marine Collagen.
  • The Merino Collagen Cream contains parabens.
  • We are given no information as to what makes the Merino Collagen Cream more effective than other anti-aging cream which contain collagen.
  • No word on whether those with shellfish allergies are ok to use marine collagen.
  • There does not appear to be a money back guarantee upon purchase nor is there an offer of a free trial sample via the website.

The Bottom Line

Firstly we are given no information as to what makes the Merino Collagen Cream more effective than other creams which contain Marine Collagen. Secondly, the Merino Collagen Cream contains parabens and we prefer to not recommend creams that contain parabens until there is conclusive evidence that parabens do not have a role to play in certain cancers or in skin irritation. Those trying to avoid synthetic creams should stay away from Merino Collagen Cream.

Top Wrinkle Cream for 2014: Revivasol

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Revivasol is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care. By recommending lifestyle changes like diet and exercise, Revivasol has firmly placed their customers health first. We never see skin care companies doing this sort of marketing. In addition, scientifically-proven results on how the formula works says it all, and the Revivasol website provides ample proof. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the clinical studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Revivasol is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Revivasol Go



Vivexin

(Optional- For Enhanced Results): Vivexin

Editor's Review: 4.6 / 5.0

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this! Vivexin is an anti-aging, eye treatment formulated to lighten dark circles, lessen the appearance of bags under the eyes and minimize fine lines and crow's feet associated with premature skin aging. The three active ingredients in Vivexin - Haloxyl, Eyeliss and Matrixyl - are backed with clinical research and positive consumer testimonials. If that's not enough to convince consumers to try Vivexin, the company offers a 90-day money-back guarantee so consumers can see the changes in eye appearance with the option of returning the product if they are not convinced >> Read more about Vivexin Go



One Comment/Question/Answer to Merino Collagen Cream

    Judy Reber

    The Merino Collagen Cream does not contain parabens. This product does contain marine collagen, but many other properties that help with protecting and revitalizing your skin. The combination is what makes this product so excellent for Men, Women and children. The SPF is the best and we’d hold this up against any product on the market. I’ve personally used it for over 16 years and cannot keep it in stock it is so popular with our customers. Thank you for taking another look and if you would like a sample, please contact us and we would be happy to send one! Take good care, Judy
