Yumei is marketed by a company called Lipsticknet. The product in the Yumei line that we will be focusing on is the Yumei UV Whitening Line Stop Firming Eye Cream. In this review we are going to examine the ingredients in order to determine whether or not this product can actually firm up the wrinkles that gather around the eye area.
First, we will look at the ingredients that are claimed to be in this product. Then, we will take a more in depth view of what the possibilities of these ingredients working together to be an effective anti-wrinkle agent are. The website claims that is has a so -called special complex formula. This formula contains Gingko Extracts, Scutellaria Baicalensis Extract, Ginseng Extract, Squalane and Jojoba.
The Gingko Extracts that are in this product have not been found to have any scientific proof that it actually works as a skin firming agent. There have been claims that it can be used as a powerful antioxidant. Contrary to this there are many people that claim that it has worked for them. Ginseng Extract is another well known supplement that was introduced to America through the Asian culture. Although it is said o reduce wrinkles, it is not apparent exactly how it does work. As far as it is known to us, there are no clinical studies to back up this claim.
While the ingredient Scutellaria Baicalensis Extract has shown to have positive effect on a few neurological disorders, there is still no evidence supporting the idea of it being a wrinkle reducing agent. Then, we have Squalane. While there may be proof that Squalane could be a great moisturizer, its role in smoothing out fine lines is uncertain at this time. Last, but not least, we have Jojoba. Jojoba is derived from the Jojoba plant that is native to western United States. Jojoba has been used for years by the Native Americans not only as a type of skin care, but to also for medicinal purposes. It contains a variety of complex vitamins and minerals and is said to be so close to the original make up of the human skin that it can prevent skin from becoming too oily. However, there is still no scientific proof to back up the claim of it being used as an anti-wrinkle product.
It is thought that it is a good possibility that more ingredients could be found in this product, but there is was no information found that could reveal what the other possible ingredients could be.
- Seems to contain many vitamins and minerals that could promote some type of healthy skin care.
- Appears to be good for all skin types, even sensitive skin.
- Ingredients seem to be lacking clinical evidence in the area of wrinkle reduction.
- It appears as though all of the ingredients may not be disclosed in the advertisement of this product.
The Bottom Line
While most all of the ingredients seem to contain healthy benefits, and the idea that is presented in the advertisement sounds good, we can’t help but notice the lack of scientific proof that someone could base these ideas on. Most women will probably look elsewhere, particularly at those products that contain clinically proven ingredients, when choosing a anti-aging product that can best suit their needs.
