Ultra-Lite Anti-Aging Cellular Repair makes the same antiwrinkle, our-peptides-pack-a-punch claims as several other Peter Thomas Roth products. Peptides are present in this product, but there is no proof they can affect collagen and elastin production or improve the appearance of wrinkles and expression lines. The smattering of antioxidants is not helped by jar packaging. All plant extracts, vitamins, antioxidants, and other state-of-the-art ingredients break down in the presence of air, so once a jar is opened and lets the air in these important ingredients begin to deteriorate. Jars also are unsanitary because you’re dipping your fingers into them with each use, adding bacteria which further deteriorate the beneficial ingredients. Lastly, this contains a skin-confusing blend of helpful and irritating plant extracts, making it a poor contender for anti-aging and cellular repair.

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.
