This product goes to the head of the class for marketing fakery. As is often the case in the cosmetics industry, facts are continually ignored. To wit, here is another product launch that will utterly disappoint the user.
Scars, stretch marks, and surfaced spider veins (technically known as telangiectasias) are common skin complaints and, of course, the cosmetics industry must have, or at least claim to have, products that can solve the problem.
Without question, lots of skin-care products do offer real solutions for problems, such as dryness, acne, and excess oil, but the problems this product claims to alleviate cannot possibly be resolved with skin-care products of any kind.
There are too many issues about this product to discuss them all, but primarily, scars, stretch marks, and spider veins have nothing to do with each other and cannot be treated the same way. Think about it this way, a broken leg, a cut on your arm, and a lower back muscle spasm—you cannot take care of them the same way.
Stretch marks have to do with broken strands of elastin beneath the skin that cause tire-like marks, most often on the thighs, stomach, back, and upper arms. Scars are slightly raised areas of too much collagen where a wound has healed. Spider veins are surfaced capillaries. There is no research anywhere showing that skin-care products can deal with any of these issues, and it is impossible for one product to address all three. Not even one medical procedure can address all three.
Despite the idiotic claims, this formula does contain some intriguing ingredients, such as peptides and antioxidants, but it also contains some potentially harmful ingredients that cause irritation, such as lavender, citrus, and geranium, none of which are helpful for scars. Over time, the irritation will cause collagen to break down, which won’t improve what you’re hoping to correct. Chalk this one up to a great big “Why bother?”
