In a review of Luzern facial cream by Anastasia Chemical Co., it’s stated that this cream contains Neurontin, a derivative of Vitamin A. The other ingredients in the product are Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Triloxane, Octyldodecanol, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Dimethiconol, Dimethicone PEG-10 Silicone, Glycerin, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Acrylates Copolymer, Butylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Triethanolamine, N-Butyl Alcohol, Benzyl Alcohol, Isopropyl Alcohol, Trimethylpentanediol, Carbomer, Sodium Benzoate, Fragrance, Cetearyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Benzyl Benzoate, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Propylparaben, Benzylparaben, Propylparaben. The review concludes that there is no scientific evidence to support these claims, however.
The review does not discuss the positive effects of the product and it also does not discuss the negative effects of the product. It may be that all of the ingredients listed above have documented anti-inflammatory effects. However, any product that can produce a chemical which has been shown to have significant anti-inflammatory effects will not be included in a list of ingredients for a facial cream that is supposed to be good for your skin.
The company uses two harsh chemicals, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate and Benzyl Benzoate, to soften the outer layers of the skin. These chemicals should be avoided if you are trying to reduce the effects of wrinkles, but you don’t find these ingredients listed in the products as ingredients because they are not harsh chemicals.
This company also produces eye creams that claim to help diminish under-eye bags and puffiness. In addition, the company suggests using the cream after each makeup application to “open up the pores” of the skin. It also says that it helps reduce dark circles. I don’t know if this works, but according to Anastasia Chemical Co., you can use the cream without a prescription.
I suspect that the ingredient list for Luzern Facial Cream has several more chemicals that you would prefer to avoid. This is the problem with beauty products that claim to help reduce wrinkles and prevent the formation of new wrinkles. You will get little or no benefit from them. However, you can’t be concerned about the products because they will never work for you anyway.
There is no debate about the benefits of Luzern Facial Cream. All of the products contain Retinol, a fusion protein complex that appears to cause collagen production. It is possible that Retinol works because it increases the production of elastin, an enzyme that repairs the collagen molecules that become wrinkled and fragile. My guess is that Retinol provides no added benefits at all.
The company suggests that you treat the product like you would treat your skin, using a moisturizer at night and a sunless moisturizer during the day. I am not convinced that these suggestions are sufficient to provide any real value. Many people who have used the product say that their results were not very good, although most of them have at least tried it before.
In the end, Luzern Facial Cream does not appear to be effective. This is true for any such product, even a highly touted product that makes outlandish claims about its health benefits.
