I recently spent four weeks testing Osmosis Catalyst and I wish I could say I came away with a definitive feeling about the product one way or another. Catalyst uses what Osmosis calls “Zinc Finger” (ZFT) to repair DNA damage and assist in the production of proteins and antioxidants within the cell. I read this and got excited because don’t we all want to repair and rejuvenate our aging skin?

I faithfully used Catalyst morning and night for four weeks per the instructions. My skin, which is fair and sensitive and relatively wrinkle-free for its 40+ years, didn’t show any signs of change during that time. It did not break out or change in texture, and the product did not lighten pigmentation (I would love to lighten some freckles), add or decrease moisture, etc. There was no improvement nor was there a decline in my skin’s condition while I used it. To be fair (and as Marta pointed out in 2010 when she reviewed this product), everyone’s skin is different and I am sure some will notice changes to their skin as a result of using this product. Maybe the product requires more time to achieve its claims. Regardless, the four weeks I invested in using Catalyst didn’t impress or disappoint, but at $90 per bottle this isn’t a product I will be keeping in my skincare routine.
