Skeyndor was founded in 1966 in Terrassa Barcelona. The Skeyndor brand is now available in twenty-four countries and thousands of beauty salons. The Skeyndor vision is to offer innovative products with the use of the most up to date scientific ingredients. The products offered in the line are meant to address the specific skin problems of acne, hyper pigmentation, as well as products that address the unique challenges of aging skin. The products include Micro-Derm Filler, Lifting/Lightening, Anti-aging/Acne, Repair, Sensitive, Body and Biologic Sun Protection.
The Skeyndor product intended for anti-aging is called ‘Skeyndor Natural Defense Ultra Moisturizing Cream’. According to the manufacturer’s official website, Skeyndor Natural Defense Ultra Moisturizing Cream promises to smooth fine lines and wrinkles as well as provide a hydrating benefit to the skin. The official website provides the following information on the ingredients; plant and seaweed extracts, vegetal oriented proteins, amino acids, oligoelements, marine plankton and vitamins. One of the vitamins used in the product is Vitamin A which is in the form of Retinol. Retinol is used in many anti-aging and acne skin care products. Retinol works by causing the top layers of the skin to peel away revealing the new skin beneath. This process can be irritating to those who have sensitive skin. Retinol has been known to cause redness, itching, peeling and photosensitivity of the skin. Usually an SPF lotion is recommended while using a skin care product that contains Retinol. Because of the use of Retinol in the Skeyndor Natural Defense Ultra Moisturizing Cream, the product may not be right for everyone.
- Skeyndor may contain antioxidants and moisturizers that will benefit dry skin.
- The product may work to revitalize dull looking skin based on the fact that Retinol is a main ingredient in the formula.
- The official website does not have a checkout option and so products can not be purchased directly from the manufacturer.
- No advanced ingredients appear to be included in the anti-aging formula.
- No customer testimonials or before and after photos are posted to demonstrate product effectiveness.
- Skeyndor does not publish the clinical research for their products for consumer review.
The Bottom Line
Skeyndor products may appeal to consumers looking to address the issue of skin acne but the products fail to address the issue of premature aging, mainly due to the lack of advanced ingredients in the formulas. Since the official website does not make public the clinical research associated with their products, it is impossible to substantiate the claims. Consumers appreciate it when a manufacturer offers the products directly to the public as opposed to having to seek them out from alternate retailers. It would helpful if Skeyndor had an online checkout option as well as before and after photos and customer testimonials to further educate new customers about their products and their intended purpose. Consumers looking to purchase anti-aging skin care products want to look for advanced ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Real Collagen and Matrixyl 3000; these are the latest technological advances available in the fight against premature aging of the skin.
