For the past 25 years, Silk Skin products have been produced with the goal to increase the moisture and slow the aging process by moisturizing and rehydrating the skin. Most of the products on their website claim to have anti-aging ingredients in them.
The founder of Silk Skin, Bob Siddell, claims three minutes per day is all it takes to achieve younger and smoother skin in a week. Ultra Skin Smoother, Ceramide Plus, Lift Complex, Regenacel, Serum 15, and Night Shift are some of the ingredients contained in some of the Products. The Silk Skin Anti-Aging line includes Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Rose Hips, Chamomile, Grape Seed Extract, Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Glycolic Acid, Elastin, Royal Jelly, and Jojoba Oil, natural moisturizers and exfoliates.
Good anti-aging products are considered to have effective peptides, such as Matryxil 3000 and offer a free trial sample, and Silk Skin offers a return policy, but we did not find peptides. However, it does contain Alpha Hydroxy, which is a known exfoliate that sloughs off the top layer of skin to reveal younger skin underneath. Caution-Some people cannot tolerate it, however, and the face can become irritated.
- They have a 2 day shipping time from order date on the Silk Skin website.
- They also offer a six month return and refund policy, which is not like a free trial, but close.
If a product contains parabens and is considered a moisturizer, then it is not considered to be an effective wrinkle fighting product. It is more of a moisturizer, which is an important part of skin care. It is possible that it contains parabens, which have shown an increased risk of breast cancer.
- The official product website is unprofessional looking and navigation is confusing.
- Before & after photos of consumers who have tried the products are not available.
- Ingredients include Alpha Hydroxy acid, which can cause facial redness and irritation.
- No advanced anti-aging ingredients such as Collagen, Argireline, Hyaluronic Acid, or Matrixyl-3000 were found in Silk Skin.
The Bottom Line
Silk Skin products do not contain a very extensive ingredients list but the ingredients are typical of the ones found in some anti-aging formulas, purchased over-the counter. Sensitive skin does not tolerate Alpha Hydroxy Acid, which is a known irritant, so it may not be right for everyone. No before or after photos of what type of results consumers can expect makes one wonder whether there is any difference before and after. Several positive customer testimonials are listed on the website, at least. Silk Skin offers a generous refund policy which gives consumers six months to try the products. They can send them back if they are unhappy, although it does not appear that Silk Skin can deliver any more dramatic results than any other moisturizer as far as reducing wrinkles is concerned. It lacks the advanced ingredients for anti-aging in all of its formulas.
