Z mei Skin Therapy is said to be designed by Dr. Janet Zand. It is presumed, according to available resources, that she is a doctor of Oriental medicine, an acupuncturist, naturopath, and an Herbologist. The product we will be reviewing is the Regenerating Night Cream. It is supposed to aid in reducing the signs of aging. Claims have been made that it can reverse damage done by overexposure to ultraviolet rays, polluting chemicals in our the surroundings, changes with hormones, and the natural process of aging. In this review we will take a closer at the ingredients in order to determine whether or not this could be an effective anti-aging product.
It appears that the Z mei Skin Therapy System is actually what we like to call a skin care regimen. It contains many steps using several different products. It is highly recommended that all 6 of these products be used in conjunction with one another in order to achieve maximum results. These products appear to be available either in all together in a kit, or purchased separately.
Since the Regenerating Night Cream appears to be the product in this regimen that seems to be most aimed toward decreasing wrinkles, it will be our main focus. The claim is that it can stimulate Collagen production causing the skin to appear more firm with improved elasticity. Some of the ingredients listed on the website are Sunflower Seed Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, Chinese Licorice, Retinyl, Sodium Hyaluronate, Xanthan Gum, Cetearyl Methicone, Dimethicone, Soy Amino Acids, Aloe Vera, Oat Beta Glucan, Zinc PCA, and Origanum Vulgare Leaf Extract.
The first ingredient we will examine is Retinyl, a.k.a. Retinol. It is often found to be used in the treatment of acne. It is also known to cause sensitivity to sun, and to cause dry patches on the skin. When using a product with this ingredient, it should be advised that sun block and moisturizers will be needed in order to counter react the side effects of Retinyl.
One more that we will take a look at is the Sodium Hyaluronate, a.k.a. Hyaluronic Acid. While there appears to be studies of this ingredient, and it has received good customer reviews, the possible side effects cannot be left unnoticed. While there may be proof developing of this ingredient actually being effective as a wrinkle agent, it can still cause skin rashes in the skin with certain people that are prone to skin allergies and that have sensitive skin.
- Appears to contain 2 possibly effective ingredients.
- Recommended to be used in a regimen, meaning there are many products to buy.
- No free trial sample that we could discover.
The Bottom Line
While this product appears to contain 2 potentially effective ingredients, both have been known to cause dry skin and rashes on people with sensitive skin, and increase sensitivity to the sun. It is also considered inconvenient by most that it has to be used in a regimen, which can be time consuming. So, even though it seems that it may hold some relevance as an anti-wrinkle agent, it is believed that if women were to research the product that they would find it to be too time consuming and to have too much of a risk factor in the area of the development of rashes.
