Transformula’s ‘Mid-Life’ line has targeted the early stages of skin aging, with a goal to heal and transform the complexion. The idea is to reduce wrinkles and fine lines and increase skin firmness and elasticity. The ‘Mid-Life’ line includes a cleanser, a crème, a serum, a cell tonic, and a cell serum.
Based on the name of the product, we can expect to see some undersea natural ingredients, but in order for the product to work effectively, it would also need to include some serious peptides or stem cells in order for it to do its job. Let’s see what’s inside.
What Ingredients are in Transformula’s Mid-Life Marine Miracle Crème?
The company does not provide a full list of ingredients, which is not optimal. Without a full list, we cannot know the quantities of the active ingredients, which would determine how effective they would be. The first ingredient listed is lysedine. Lysedine is a patented ingredient that “helps relax the dermal layer to soften the contractions caused by expression lines.” Since there is no information about what it is actually made of, we can’t know how well it works.
Next are algae & sea salt extracts cleanse and detoxify the ocean hydrate the skin. These are excellent exfoliates, but
besides removing read skin cells and softening the surface, they do not do much in terms of wrinkles. Giant sea kelp is the last ingredient listed. It is a macro algae, rich in minerals and active chemicals, supposedly ferments to moisturize and nourish the skin. This also contributes to the moisture and hydration of the body, but does little to smooth the skin and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles.
What Else Should I Know about Transformula’s Mid-Life Marine Miracle Crème?
This is a pricey product (£39 for 15 ml) and because we do not know what is in the primary active ingredient, there is really no way to know if it if effective. We would recommend buying a product that lists ALL the ingredients, and doing research beforehand to determine if the “active” ingredients are truly working.
