Marketed as “scientific skincare that works”, Bioque was developed by Dr Martin Rodbell. They claim these formulas will “drastically stimulate the production of collagen and elastin fibers.” His research began as a search for cancer treatments and ended with a Nobel prize in relation to skin care.
The Bioque Serum XL claims to be an alternative to botox offering a “peptide punch.” It contains a 20% concentration of argireline, higher than any other product on the market, which offers muscle relaxation comparable to botox results. In addition, it uses Matrixyl, another valuable anti aging component, to accomplish the desired results. Finally, they provide a 60 day money back guarantee for those not satisfied with their product.
There is something to be said about following the yellow brick road or the crowd. Most manufacturers use a maximum of 10% argireline in their formulations for a reason. While argireline relaxes muscles to effectively reduce wrinkles, too much argireline can relax those muscles to the point of facial sag, the exact opposite of what we are aiming for. This product may also be difficult to find with limited stock available with retailers and third party sellers. There is also no complete ingredients list to be found on the official website or any third party seller’s website.
Bioque Serum XL has potential, with a Nobel prize winning developer. However, they go too far in the use of one ingredient and could very well not provide enough of other important ingredients they claim to use. There are enough red flags to cause serious concern with Bioque Serum XL.
