Based in Malaysia, Cellnique would like to provide “result oriented yet personalized beauty solutions aimed at absolute beauty.” One of the ingredients used by Cellnique is retinol to reduce wrinkles and firm skin. Results are promised within 2 weeks of applications, and it is said to be suitable for all skin types. Items can be bought through the company itself or through ebay, which also seems to be the original company. They state that it promotes anti aging by promoting collagen production and relaxing the skin surrounding the eyes.
The two main ingredients are hexapeptides and phyto-estrogen. Hexapeptides covers a wide range of potential ingredients. However, they may be referring to the most popular of the hexapeptides, acetyl-hexapeptide-3, which has also been called argireline. Should this be the case, the Cellnique Firming Serum would have a good base to jump from. When clinical studies were conducted, it was found that after 30 days, wrinkles were reduced up to 27%. It works by relaxing muscles and reducing the effect of muscle contractions that occur with common facial expressions. Phytoestrogens also cover a large umbrella of ingredients. But in general, they are known to preserve the skin’s collagen content and its elasticity. In addition, a 3rd ingredient listed by ebay sellers, retinol, has been known to increase the turnover rate of skin and increase collagen production.
The Cellnique Firming Serum is sold through the manufacturer’s website and on ebay. But it is difficult to find elsewhere. And while the general assumption stands that they are using acetyl hexapeptide-3, one cannot be certain. I also don’t see any reason why they would not specify the hexapeptide if that were the case considering its established credibility. There is no full ingredient list. And the product is only sold through the manufacturer’s website and of course ebay. So it will be difficult to get a competitive price on Cellnique. The testimonials are questionable, which could mean they’re fake. Finally, they do ship from Malaysia, which means either the shipping method will not be reliable, it will take an extended period of time to get your product, or shipping costs will be extremely high. There are a number of ingredients elemental to the success of a similar wrinkle product missing from this particular product such as Matrixyl, which can aid the usefulness of argireline.
If Cellnique Firming Serum uses acetyl hexapeptide-3, it would be a potentially useful product in producing an anti-aging effect. However, they do not specify which hexapeptide they use, which to me means it is not that one. The company is vague on details, and they ship from Malaysia. Given the evidence provided, I believe you could get more bang for your buck elsewhere.
