Skingenic produces a moisturizer called Skingenic Regenerating Moisturizer. According to the company’s website, the moisturizer is based on a patented Lychee Complex which contains Vitamin C to fight free radicals. Skingenic also promotes several other products but we will focus on the Regenerating Moisturizer for this review. According to the Skingenic website, the moisturizer will tighten sagging skin, fight free radicals, and hydrate the skin. Many products have similar claims so we will review the ingredient list in the next section to see if the Skingenic Regenerating Moisturizer might be able to live up to its promises.
At the time of this review, several aspects of the Skingenic website were broken, including the shopping cart feature. However, you can purchase Skingenic products at many online retailers. The website itself provides very little information on the product. There are no links to clinical studies supporting the effectiveness of the moisturizer. Nor are there customer testimonials or before and after pictures, all relevant to a consumer when deciding on an anti-aging product.
The Skingenic website does not offer an ingredient list for the Regenerating Moisturizer. According to online retailer websites, the product might contain copper peptides, hyaluronic acid and lychee complex. If true, we like to see the addition of hyaluronic acid in the formulation. Hyaluronic acid is derived from desert plants and can hold over 1.000 times its own weight in water, deeply hydrating the skin. Copper peptides have been shown to be promising for anti-aging benefits but we prefer peptides like Matrixyl 3000 or Argiriline that penetrate deeply and stimulate the body’s own production of collagen.
Without a full list of ingredients, it is difficult for consumers to determine the quality of the Skingenic Regenerating Moisturizer. Some mediocre skin care products use synthetic “fillers” to stretch the more expensive ingredients. It also does not allow those with skin allergies or sensitivities to assess whether there is anything in the product that might react with their skin. Those with allergies may wish to be very cautious with this product and to check with their doctor or dermatologist before using.

The Bottom Line
With so many anti-aging skin care products on the market today, we find it very difficult to recommend one with unknown ingredients. The best skin care manufacturers list all of their products’ ingredients on their websites and stand behind those products with a money-back guarantee. Consumers may wish to continue their search for a proven effective product with clinical research to back up their claims.
