All about Anti-Ageing Supplements

 

Active Ingredients:

If you see this anywhere remember that these 'actives' are the only thing within the beauty supplement that 'works' so in a list of 10, if there are only 4 active ingredients, you need to research what else is in there.  Be aware of companies whose ingredients lists are difficult (if not impossible) to find on the web.

Dove Spa

 

No, this product isn’t soap. We all know Dove have ventured away from the lovely soaps they’re so well known for and into the beauty business but now they’ve taken on the anti-aging supplement world with their DoveSpa Strength Within Anti-Wrinkle Supplement.

To their credit they’ve done a whole lot of research and have brought out independent studies showing links between ingredients like soy isoflavones and lycopene and a reduction in wrinkle production, which they include in the anti-aging supplement. Unfortunately they’ve been a little stingy in the amount of these amazing ingredients that they actually put in their product.

They do however also include some other useful ingredients such as fish oil, which is great for reducing dryness and protecting skin against sun damage, and vitamin C, an anti-oxidant great for reducing the effects of free-radicals in the body and essential to the production of collagen.

Product Name: Strength Within Anti-Wrinkle Supplement

 

Ingredients List: Fish Oil (660mg), Bovine Gelatine, Vitamin C (30mg), Beeswax, Humectant (Glycerol), Soy Extract, Sweetener (Sorbitol), Natural Orange Flavouring, Tomato Extract (3mg), Vitamin E (180mg), Emulsifier (Lecithin), Colour (E172), Soy Isoflavones (40mg).

 

Cost +1 Month's Supply: £35.00 (3 Capsules Daily)

 

Pros:  In doing their research they found a connection between soy isoflavones, lycopene and anti-aging skin care. It’s also relatively cheap for an anti-aging supplement.

 

Cons: Despite discovering a link between two key ingredients and anti-aging, DoveSpa haven’t really put much of either in their supplement, and they haven’t included many other ingredients either.

 

Our Verdict: 6/10 If you’re looking for a cheap supplement, this is probably the best of the bunch, but there are better ones out there.

Imedeen

 

Having been around for over 20 years, Imedeen is the grand old Dame of the Skin Beauty world. In its golden era Imedeen was groundbreaking but sadly a lack of further innovation means many younger companies have surpassed Imedeen and now produce far superior products.

One thing Imedeen have got right is that they’ve latched on to the idea of anti-oxidants and they’ve stuck with it. Whilst this might not be great for reducing and reversing wrinkles and skin damage, anti-oxidants are key to the prevention of premature aging. Unfortunately, this is all they’ve really put in their Prime Renewal product and they seem to have forgotten about new skin care techniques designed to reduce wrinkles and improve collagen production.

 

www.imedeen.com

Product Name: Imedeen prime Renewal

 

Ingredients List:  Bulking agents (maltodextrin, soy fibre), Soy extract 350mg, Marine Complex 210mg, white tea extract  62.4mg,Vitamin C 60mg,Tomato extract 28.8mg, grape seed extract 27.5mg, Vitamin E 10mg, Dried Glucose syrup, Chamomile extract 40mg, glazing agents - methylcellulose, mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids, glycerol, shellac, vegetable oil), anti-caking agents - silicium dioxide, talc, Zinc 5mg, colours - titanium dioxide, ammonia caramel (contains wheat), gelatine.  Firming agent Pectin

 

Pros: They were innovative in the beginning and they are the company that started it all which counts for something, we’re just not sure what.

 

Cons: With few ingredients, and less that are actually useful this is a company that is well and truly stuck in the middle ages of skin care.

 

Our Verdict: 2/10 We’re being generous here. Your skin only needs so many anti-oxidants to keep the free radicals at bay and that’s all Imedeen seems to have put in their products.

 

 

Perfectil

 

Produced by Vitabiotics, Perfectil Platinum Beauty capsules is their offer of a premium

skin vitamin supplement. The formulation contains some good active ingredients – Marine Collagen, Grape seed extract, Pinebark extract (sometimes known as Pycogenol), Green tea extract, Alpha Lipoic acid, C0 Q10, Lycopene. But it’s dramatically let down by the low doses of the expensive ingredients(compared to the high doses of cheapo vitamins) and by the amount of fillers, caking agents and bulking agents used.  Wecounted over 24 different non-active(see side-bar for explanation of what an active ingredient is) additives. It is slightly cheaper than other skincare oral supplement brands but then we find ourselves thinking‘there really is a reason for that’.

Product Name:                       Perfectil Platinum Skin Radiance

Ingredients List:                       www.vitabiotics.com/Perfectil/platinum_formula4.aspx

Cost +1 month’s supply:        £40.35 (2 anti-ageing skincare capsules daily)

Pros:                                           Quite a lot of ingredients.

Cons:                                         None of the best and newest (presumably because these are

                                                           price-y) ingredients - not great doses of the ones they do have.

Our Verdict:                             4.5/10.        These ingredients may  help your skin look  

                                                          better in some way. But this is mainly just a multi Vit.

Caudalie

 

The vineyard people.  This is actually a decent product for a dietary oil supplement – it contains a good amount of borage and evening primrose oil – 146mg of each, not great but certainly not bad.  The ingredients list claims that this skin care capsule has grape extract of 80mg but we want to ask what does that mean exactly – is that grapeseed or are they offering an extract of grape flesh (cheaper, obviously, and not as effective as grapeseed extract).  Apart from that, however, for a specifically anti-ageing supplement it doesn’t hold a candle to some others in the list since it contains only 1 key ingredient – grapeseed oil.  The rest are oils amounting to only about 300mg.

Product Name:                     Vinexperts Anti-Ageing Supplement

Ingredients List:                     Total grape extract 80 mg, Grape-seed oil 240 mg, Virgin borage  

                                                         oil 146 mg, Virgin evening primrose oil 146 mg, carrageenan,

Cost +1 month’s supply: £40.50 (2 skin beauty capsules daily)

Pros:                                          They’re good on the grapes and the vegetable oils.

                                                         made the younger ones try harder.

Cons:                                              They’re only good on the grapes and the vegetable oils.

Our Verdict:                            4/10.  These ingredients will definitely help your skin look better    

                                                         in some way. They just haven’t gone far enough.

Perricone

 

Lot of respect due to the glamorous doctor.  He has built an empire from selling skin beauty anti-ageing supplements and creams.  Also he does put good ingredients in.  Admittedly he has no anti-ageing supplement pack and the one we’ve used in this selection is actually for acne and clear skin.  But he does put in some great doses and he puts the amounts too.  Right on, Doctor.

Dove Spa

 

Nope – not a soap.  Actually a supplement for anti-ageing.  Dove has ventured away from creamy, luscious soap and into the world of anti-ageing.  A little further investigation reveals that Dove Spa is infact owned by the mighty Unilever - they own the ‘dove’ and ‘ponds’ brands AND Unilever also own spas in the UK, Spain & Canada.  So it goes without saying that beauty supplements might be a bit of a money spinner for those self same spas.  

 

However, one of the benefits of being as big as  Unileveris that you have a lot of money to spend on R&D and then a lot more money to spend on publicizing that R&D. And, frankly, Unilever have done well.  They’ve brought out independent studies that show prove a definite link between soy isoflavones, lycopene and ……..a whole lot of wrinkle reduction.

 

Hooray for nutraceuticals and a little bit of a congratulatory slap on the back for Dove Spa.  The one thing we would say though is that Unilever has been a little stingy with the amounts of soy isoflavones and lycopene and they haven’t really put much else in either.

Product Name:                       Strength Within anti-wrinkle supplement

Ingredients List:                fish oil (660mg), bovine gelatine, vitamin C (30mg), stabilizer    

                                                         (beeswax), humectant (glycerol) soy extract, sweetener (sorbitol)

                                                         (40mg).

Cost +1 month’s supply: 3 Skin Vitamin Capsules per day:  £35.00

Pros:                                         They have found a bona fide connection between soy isoflavones,  

                                                          lycopene and anti-ageing skin benefits.  We thank them for the      

                                                          study.

Cons:                 The ingredients are otherwise quite weak.

Our Verdict:                        6/10 – If you’re going to take a beauty skincare supplement  

                                                          then this is one of the better ones out there but, then again, there      

                                                          are better ones out there.

                                                          lycopene and anti-ageing skin benefits.  We thank them for the      

                                                          study.

Cons:                 The ingredients are otherwise quite weak.

Our Verdict:                        6/10 – If you’re going to take a beauty skincare supplement  

                                                          then this is one of the better ones out there but, then again, there      

                                                          are better ones out there.

BioCorrex

 

We’ll start by just saying wow. How many anti-aging ingredients can you pack into one box? BioCorrex have a 5-Capsule system with each capsule dedicated to a different anti-aging task. From sun protection and sun damage repair capsules to anti-wrinkle and firming capsules they really do seem to have tried to put everything they can into their skin care products, which is a good thing since they’re pretty pricey.

With Vitamins A, B, D and E as well as Lycopene, Ginseng, Aloe Vera, Hyaluronic acid, Grape-Seed Extract and quite literally a whole list more BioCorrex have filled their products with ingredients that anti-oxidant rich, sun protective, collagen stimulating, skin firming and wrinkle reducing. With so many active ingredients you can see why they have such a price tag.

Annoyingly, their website doesn’t list the amount of each ingredient in their capsules but we emailed them and they happily sent us over a photo of the back of the box which helpfully does tell you all the doses. Don’t worry, we won’t go through them all, suffice to say you get a lot for your money.

Product Name: BioCorrex Skin Beauty

 

Ingredients List: There really are too many for us to list here. You can, however find a full list of ingredients on their website here: http://biocorrex.com/products/skin-beauty

 

Cost +1 Month’s Supply: £69.95 (5 Capsules Daily)

 

Pros: BioCorrex have gone out of their way to fit as many active ingredients into their capsules as possible to give you the best anti-aging supplement they can.

 

Cons: It is rather expensive, but we can forgive them for the sheer amount of ingredients they give you for your money. And if you buy it in bulk you can get some great offers so you needn’t break the bank.

 

Our Verdict: 10/10 This product really does have it all. They’re only missing listing their doses on their website. We don’t mind emailing them but it really should be readily available.
