The main product from the major beauty care manufacturer Klein Becker is the anti-wrinkle cream Strivectin-SD. This Strivectin-SD cream retails from the manufacturers for $135.00 for one 6 ounce tube of cream. This is a bit expensive compared to rival products. Strivectin-SD’s main product claim is that the cream is “better than Botox.” Certainly, consumers looking to erase facial wrinkles would be happy to see an alternative cream that worked as well as a costly in-office procedure involving needles. But how likely is Strivectin-SD to live up to these claims?
Strivectin-SD certainly offers one of the more entertaining product development stories that we’ve read. Originally, this formula was intended to help fade stretch marks. However, unmarked trial tubes of the cream were passed out to Klein Becker’s employees, and many assumed it was some kind of new face cream or moisturizer. According to the manufacturer, these people began noticing a pronounced reduction in wrinkles. Soon, Klein Becker shifted their focus to the very lucrative wrinkle fighting market.
The main active ingredient in this Strivectin cream is a peptide name Pal-KTTKS, but unfortunately we could find no list of other ingredients. It states on the official Strivectin-SD website that the product came out on top in blind trials featuring retinol based creams and vitamin C based creams. These are traditionally two of the most popular ingredients found in more generic wrinkle creams. The forefront of anti-aging research is definitely in peptides, which are specially engineered molecules, but we’d like to point out that there are other peptides made available in rival high-end wrinkle creams that could potentially rival Strivectin-SD.

The Bottom Line
We’d love to find a topical cream that can compete with Botox, and the story offered about how Strivectin-SD came to be used to fight wrinkles is certainly a good one. But once you get past the story, we still had too many questions to justify the high price tag. For example, what else goes into Strivectin-SD besides the main active peptide? And how does it compare to some of the other cutting-edge peptides currently on the market? Strivectin-SD could be a strong competitor, but we’d at least like to see a product trial offer so we can check it out for ourselves without paying $135.
