Jar Packaging:Yes
Tested on animals:Yes

None of the peptides in this moisturizer have research that proves they can affect deep wrinkles or expression lines. At best, this moisturizer will make normal to dry skin feel better, but the many antioxidants are subject to deterioration because of jar packaging, making this a mega waste of money. Some of the plant extracts in this moisturizer are known irritants, yet another reason to skip this pricey product.

This bio-chemical phenomenon is a result of the synergistic effects of combining these intensive anti-aging ingredients and a unique bio-processing method. Patent pending PTR Firma-CELL-4 peptide technology is a powerful anti-aging complex with four different molecular size 100% active peptides including Argireline (hexapeptide), SYN-COLL, pentapeptide-3 and oligopeptide that penetrate the epidermal layer. Collagen and elastin help firm, tone, smooth, lift and clarify the skin reducing the appearance of fine lines and the severity of deep wrinkles for younger looking skin.

Brand Overview

Peter Thomas Roth At-A-Glance

Peter Thomas Roth is a large but straightforward line with mostly uncomplicated formulations that, for the most part, are quite good and state-of-the-art. Unlike many product lines, most of the acne, AHA, BHA, sunscreen, and moisturizing products contain what they should to be effective and helpful for skin.

Even more impressive are the well-formulated cleansers, sunscreens, AHA products, and skin lighteners. The moisturizers have improved somewhat, and most are now packaged so that the light- and air-sensitive ingredients remain stable. In fact, Roth's packaging deserves special mention because it is exceptionally utilitarian.

After all that glowing praise, what you should be aware of are the instances of products containing potential irritants (noted in their respective reviews) as well as the products in jar packaging that contain ingredients which are sensitive to air and light.
