Skincare is something you don’t compromise. From anti-acne to anti-aging, all-natural to organic, drugstore to luxury, there’s a wide gamut of products you can choose from. What it takes is a matter of preference which is largely influenced by experience. Following my delightful experience with Stemology, a brand hinged on stem cell-based peptide complex (human and plant stem cell technology), I am pleased to introduce Cell Revive Collagen Complete, a facial serum which features proprietary Stem Core-3 (anti-aging efficacy, ethically formulated, contains no DNA/ stem cell matter, all-natural and organic).
If you’re skincare-savvy, then you know that collagen is our skin’s foundation. Unfortunately, it does follow the law of diminishing return; as we age, the supply slows down which inevitably results to saggy and dull skin including wrinkles.
Per company’s claim, Stemology Cell Revive Collagen Complex contains Neodermyl which accelerates collagen production, with results comparable to one injection of collagen filler in just 2 weeks. The botanical ingredients stimulate cell renewal similar to what retinol does minus the irritation. I haven’t done fillers yet so I don’t have something to benchmark on personally; however I can say that when it is used in combination with a moisturizer, I notice slightly tighter pores and well-hydrated skin. As it is plant-based, the fragrance reminds me of some grassy concoction, definitely not a nuisance to my sense of olfactory. It feels lightweight and makes the skin appear dewy under makeup. The list of ingredients is quite extensive, here’s a snapshot:
Aloe Barbadensis (Organic Aloe Vera) Juice, Water, Soluble Collagen, Propanediol, Cyperus Esculentus Tuber Extract, Selaginella Lepidophylla Extract, Artemisia Abrotanum Extract, Potassium Olivoyl Hydrolyzed Oat Protein and Cetearyl Alcohol and Glyceryl Oleate and Glyceryl Stearate, Dimethylsulfone, Sea Kelp (Lactobacillus/Kelp Ferment Filtrate) Bioferment, Phospholipids and Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Extract and Tripeptide-29 and Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate and Hyaluronic Acid and Tocopherol, Sodium Lactate, Medicago Sativa (Alfalfa) Extract, Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate, Nannochloropsis Oculata Extract and Pullulan, Hydrolyzed Pumpkin Seedcake, Sodium Hyaluronate, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, Centella Asiatica Extract, Lactobacillus/Arundinaria Gigantea (Bamboo) Leaf Ferment Filtrate, C13-15 Alkane, Glycine Betaine (Beta Vulgaris (Beet)) Sugar Extract (Ecocert), Phospholipids and Ursolic Acid, Glycerin and Boswellia Serrata Gum Extract, Corylus Avellana (Hazel) Nut Oil, Polydimethylsiloxane/Polymethylsilsesquioxane Copolymer and Phospholipids and Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin and Benzyl Alcohol and Salicylic Acid and Sorbic Acid, Tripeptide-29, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Oil, n-Acetyl Glucosamine, Phospholipids and Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Niacinamide, Glycerin and Methylglucoside Phosphate and Copper Lysinate/Prolinate, Cetyl Esters, Natural Fragrance, L-Arginine, Xanthan Gum, Symphytum Officinale Root Cell Extract, Phosphlipids and Growth Factor Enriched Conditioned Media, Coffea Arabica Extract, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Ubiquinone (Coenzyme Q10), Crocus Chrysanthus Bulb Extract and Acacia Senegal Gum
