ShiKai is a skin care company which was founded in the early 1970′s by Dr. Dennis T. Stepp. His mission was to use the natural properties of plants to create a line of skin and hair care products.

The ShiKai Anti-Aging Facial Care system is based on the following ingredients: Vitamin C, Borage and Vitamin E. We will look into each of these ingredients to see how they help when trying to fight the signs of aging.
Vitamin C is a natural anti-oxidant which the body also uses help produce collagen. Collagen is needed in the skin to help it maintain its youthful appearance. Using Vitamin C topically on the skin is said to help to reduce the visible signs. Borage is said to help fight the signs of aging by increasing the moisture in the skin. Scientific studies have shown that Borage can help to prevent water loss to promote softer skin. The last active ingredient, Vitamin E, is an ingredient used to protect the skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

The Bottom Line
While it is commendable that ShiKai offers consumers an affordable choice in skin care in comparison to other products on the market, their products do not contain advanced ingredients which will produce noticeable results. Vitamin C & E are known to be beneficial to the skin however, consumers want to see dramatic improvement in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and the active ingredients in ShiKai Anti-Aging Facial Care can not accomplish this. ShiKai anti-aging products may be attractive to consumers who like “all natural” products but for those looking for the latest advances in skin care technology, we would recommend looking elsewhere.
