The Elite Telomere Cell Cream, according to the company, is “a highly advanced formula designed to correct all signs of skin aging by promoting the skin’s natural protection and repair factors involved in detoxification, anti-stress, telomere maintenance and DNA repair.” The product claims to use teprenone to lengthen the telomeres found on the end of chromosomes to prolong the lives of the chromosomes, which die more quickly when the body ages. The cell is strengthened, and the skin looks healthier in every way. We are interested in this product, but before we would recommend it to the consumer, we need to look at the ingredients and see which ones are harmful and which are helpful.
Purified Water, Squalane, Hyaluronic Acid, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Teprenone, Polyacrylate 13, Plyiosbutene, Plysorbate 20, Xylitylglucoside, Anhydroxylitol, Xylitol, Phenooxyethanol, Elthylhexylglycerine
What do these ingredients mean?
These ingredients are actually fairly impressice. Squalane is an emollient and moisturizer. Hyaluronic acid has been proven to stimulate collagen production and deeply moisturize the skin. Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is fractionated coconut oil, which also moisturizes the skin. Teprenone is the ingredient that Elite claims to be responsible for the lengthening of the telomeres and improvement of the skin on the cellular level. While we don’t know if the ingredient works exactly the way it claims, we do know that it has proven to have many positive effects on the skin. It reduces age spots and redness, as well as fine lines, and also increases moisture and improves the pores.
We would recommend this product because the ingredients seem to be effective. The only reservation we have is that it is very expensive, costing $100 before taxes, shipping, and handling for only one fluid ounce. It might be a good idea to try a less expensive product that contains teprenone and seeing how effective it is before you invest in this product.
