I am currently trying out Cellbone's Hyper-peptide serum and, although I'm not yet ready to issue a final verdict, the early signs are good. Cellbone's schtick is packaging that came out of the science lab and relatively simple formulas (you are more likely to count 15 ingredients rather than 20) based on a potent dose of active ingredients, for example Matrixyl in Cellbone Super AOX,
or Cellbone High Potency C Serum
I don't really associate Cellbone with botanicals, but I'd have to make an exception for Cellbone Skin Nutra Night Nutrient Cream ($52), which has an aloe vera juice base and majors on inca inchi oil. The botanical name for inca inchi, with its star shaped seed pods, is plukenetia volubilis and although there isn't a great deal of research on to justify claims that it is a superfood, it has been established that this Peruvian plant is rich in omega 3 and 6, as well as vitamins A and E.
There is also tamanu oil (calophyllum inophylluma). This has traditionally been used to heal wounds and it does seem to have anticoagulant compounds, as well as the ability, according to one piece of research
, to fight leukemia cells.
With avocado, more fatty acids with rose hip oil
, evening primrose
, Cellbone's night cream looks to be very nourishing. A note to would-be reviewers that it has alpha lipoic acid and so will exfoliate the skin as well and Cellbone pitches this as a night cream that will make the skin softer.
