Parthena Cosmetics are described on the official website as “world-class-skin-care.” This company is over eight years old now and is claimed to cater to hundreds of consumers at this point. Unfortunately it is stated on the website that “no products are actually sold through the site.” The five main lines offered by Parthena Cosmetics are Cleansing Products, Resurfacing Products, Repair Products, Eye Care Products, and Face & Body Makeup. There is a convenient contact email address posted on the website for potential customers or anyone with questions about Parthena Cosmetics.
Under the Cleansing Products, you’ll find the Multi Action Cleanser, Resurfacing Enzyme Cleanser, and Multi Action Marine Cleanser; under the Resurfacing Products, Parthena Cosmetics offers the 7 Day Mega Peel Serum and Toner 5% or 10%; the Repair Products consist of five different treatments (Wonder Serum, Adult Oil Controlling Gel, Longevity Cream, Youthology Lotion, and Anhydrous Extreme Cream); while the Eye Care Products provide treatments like the Daisy Gel, Eye Wonder Serum, Eyelasticity, and Dissolve Eye Make Up Remover. Major ingredients incorporated into these Parthena Cosmetics range from Grape Seed Extract, to Wild Yam Extract, to Willow Bark, to Vitamin C, to Keratoline, to Green Tea Extract, to Alpha Hydroxy Acids, to Safflower Oil. There are no free trial samples of these treatments offered at this time.
The full Parthena Cosmetics line endeavors to address all common skin types with issues like dry complexions, irritation, acne breakouts, fine lines, facial sagging, clogged pores, collagen loss and deep wrinkles. Currently it doesn’t look as though any of the Parthena Cosmetics skin care treatments can actually be acquired via the website, nor are there any customer testimonials supporting the products. These treatments are directed to be used daily as part of a regular skin care regimen. Naturally the goal is to make your complexion look younger, brighter, smoother and more radiant than before. Sadly, there are no actual clinical studies presented on specific products or ingredients found in Parthena Cosmetics topical treatments.
A full list of ingredients for Longevity Resource Cream is as follows: Purified Soft Water, Glycerin, Safflower Oil, Stearic Acid, Aloe Vera Gel, Isopropyl Palmitate, Caprylic Capric Triglyceride, Glyceryl Stearate & PEG-100 Stearate, Cetyl Alcohol, Triethanolamine, Phenoxyethanol, Wild Yam Extract, Evening Primrose Oil, Borage Oil, Carbomer, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Tocopheryl Acetate, (Vitamin E), Fragrance, DL Panthenol, FD&C Yellow #5, and FD&C Yellow #6.

The Bottom Line
In the end, the Parthena Cosmetics line of skin care treatments is rather small, in comparison to many other brands out there these days. Not to imply that this makes them inferior. However, it would be refreshing to see some consumer reviews added to the official website, along with a money-back/satisfaction guarantee. Just because a skin care line is pitched as “world-class,” doesn’t mean that people will buy it automatically.
