Exuviance Skin Care Foundation

March 25, 2008 Reviewed by Marta 1 Comment
Exuviance Skin Care Foundation claims to be war paint that is actually good for your skin and "visibly reduces signs of aging". I'm not sure about that, but this is a good foundation for anyone with rosacea for acne. The good-for-you claim rests on two ingredients: a non-chemical sunscreen (SFP 15) and gluconolactone, which is a polyhydroxy acid that has anti-oxidant properties. AHAs (of which this is really one) are good for clearing up acne. The concentration of gluconolactone is 4%.

Most of the rest of the ingredients are neutral, in that they don't do any good but nor do they harm (most of them are emulsifiers and emollients). Apart from the ubiquitous parabens, there is only one thing I don't like and that is talc (the amount depends on the shade). Talc is one of those controversial ingredients that may, or may not, be harmful. It has been fairly unequivocally linked to cancer. In 1993, a US National Toxicology Program report found that cosmetic
grade talc caused tumours in animals, even though it contained no asbestos-like fibres. However, the FDA considers non-asbestiform talc to be safe for use in cosmetics.

    <p>Most types of antiaging wrinkle cream simply act as a cover-up to the wrinkles. They provide a mask on top of the wrinkles but do not "gently massaging out wrinkles" as many advertisements claim. The reality behind this and most other anti aging supplements is that wrinkles cannot simply go away and the signs of time cannot be fought back with any permanent degree of success.</p>
