Revision Skincare Nectifirm

Is a Solution for:
Dry Skin
August 10, 2010 Reviewed by Marta 11 Comments
It seems appropriate that I should embark on a new neck cream that has extract from the cork tree, since cork is what the skin on my neck looks like these days. The neck cream is by Revision Skincare and is called Nectifirm ($50).

The cork tree, phellodendron, is a stalwart of Chinese medicine and is gaining a reputation with researchers as an anti-inflammatory and important antioxidant. The extract is fairly high on Nectifirm’s ingredient list and it is preceded by sandalwood and yeast extracts. There is more to sandalwood than an exotic smell, it is another anti-inflammatory as well as soother of skin irritations.  Meanwhile, at least one study has shown that yeast extract (saccharomyces cerevisiae) is an antioxidant and improves moisture retention of the skin.

For a mid-priced product, Nectifirm appears to have a lot going for it. It has the two peptides that make up Matrixyl 3000 and even has a dash of SYN-COLL, which is palmitoyl tripeptide-3 and is supposed to outperform Matrixyl at boosting collagen production. Ceramide 2 is a useful inclusion, as is bamboo, a source of natural silica.

There are a few standard cream fillers such as a silicone and some stearates. But I’ve seen more offenders in potions twice as costly as Nectifirm. There are, however, a few of the usual suspects amongst the preservatives including triethanolamine, diazolidinyl urea and iodoprpynyl butylcarbamate.

I shall be trying out Nectifirm over the coming month. Who knows perhaps it will be an effective neck cream that won’t strain my credit card.

Ingredients:

Purified Water, Santalam Album (sandalwood) Extract, Saccharomyces Cerevisiae (yeast) Extract, Prunum Amygdalus Dulcis (sweet Almond) Seed Extract, Tricaprylin, Glycerin, Cetyl Esters, Phellodendron Amurense Bark Extract, Lauryl Lactate, Butylene Glycol, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Dimethicone, PEG-100 Stearate, Dihydromyricetin, Glyceryl Stearate, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-3, Squalane, Hordeum Distichon (barley) Extract, Cetearyl Alcohol, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Ceramide 2, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3, Algae Extract, Bambusa Vulgaris (bamboo) Extract, Steareth-20, Idebenone, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/sodium Acryloyldimethyltaurate Copolymer, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Pisum Sativum (pea) Extract, Tocopherol (vitamin E), Polysorbate 60, Glucoseamine HCI, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (vitamin C), Ceteareth-20, PEG-10 Rapeseed Sterol, Triethanolamine, Caprylyl Glycol, Tribehenin, Diazolidiny Urea, Carbomer, Disodium EDTA, Xanthan Gum, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Fragrance

    Can someone tell me if you are still suppose to use moisturizer with Necktifirm use? I searched the Revision website to no avail.

    Hi Stephanie, I haven't tried Osmotics Necollete. But I'm glad that you pointed it out as it has a new peptide in it: Tetradecyl Aminobutyroylvalylaminobutyric Urea Trifluoroacetate. I shall do some more research into that and in the meantime ask Osmotics for a sample

    Has anyone tried Necollete from Osmotics? I know TIA is a fan of the Osmotics line, and I'm wondering about this product.

    Thanks,
    Stephanie

    Based on what I have read, this product seemed to be very good and have anti-aging properties. I don't mind trying this and see the result for myself

    I am 65 yrs old and was getting the creepy crapies
    on my neck and lines in the decollete'. I started
    using Necitifirm about 1 month ago and noticed a difference withing a few days. This is one that really does what it says it will do. I will never
    stop using this product.

    I bought a jar a couple of months ago, my doctor told me about, so I tried it, and it does work. I was very pleased with the product. I have lost about 45lbs. and my neck had that extra skin hanging down which didn't look good. I used it twice a day like it said, and every day. Still looks good. It's been over 4 mos. now. I'm going to order another jar if I need too soon. Thanks Revision skins care, Nectifirm. Good job.

    That would be WONDERFUL if there was a "Miracle" Cream, Serum, Potion for Lifting and tightening of the Neck.... Well, for Everything Really : )

    I'm anxious as well to hear the results - it sounds too good to be true, but could be that diamond in the rough we all hope for!

    Marta- this one has "the feel" of a winner. I hope it performs! I love just the thought of bamboo, don't you? And the price is outstanding. Fingers crossed. ~jk
