Marketed by SkinMedica, Ceratopic Replenishing Lotion is designed for severely dry skin. It will relieve itchy and irritated skin. It will help to heal cracked skin on elbows, knees, hands, and feet. The manufacturer claims that to obtain optimum results, one must use a multitude of products from the SkinMedica Line.
The Ceratopic Replenishing Lotion is designed not only for the face, but also for other areas of the body such as the hands and feet, making it a diversified product. It also contains a number of emollients/moisturizers and antioxidants such as olive fruit oil, soybean oil, avena sativa, kernel extract, carnosine, squalene, and tocopheryl acetate. It therefore moisturizes the skin while fighting off potential pollutants on the surface of the skin. Finally, it contains one anti aging ingredient, hyaluronic acid, which has been shown to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and fill them when injected.
Ceratopic contains hyaluronic acid, but that is unfortunately the only anti aging ingredient it contains. It is missing other vital ingredients such as acetyl hexapeptide-3 and matrixyl. It is also mainly sold through physicians’ offices, and the return policy requires that you make the return through the prescribing physician, which may mean purchasing it through the internet voids your money back guarantee. They also state that this product works best when in conjunction with other SkinMedica products, which means the price will jump due to the fact that multiple products have to be purchased.
Ultimately there are products besides Ceratopic which provide more proven anti aging ingredients, more venues to purchase their product, a reliable money back guarantee, and single products that operate unto themselves. There are too many options to waste effort on Ceratopic.
