Formulations: Skin-tightening products

There are not many product claims that appeal to the vast majority of consumers, but if there is one word that does just that, it must be “skin-tightening”. Until recently it was mainly facial care and anti-cellulite products that promised to revitalise the skin’s worn-out elasticity and give the user a cosmetic face-lift.

And theses are no longer just leave-on products ? we are seeing more and more rinse-off products in this category. Shower gels, used as part of the daily bathroom routine, that promise to rid the skin of unsightly wrinkles are becoming increasingly popular. There are shaving gels that make similar promises.

The formulation contains MPC (Milk Peptide Complex), avocado oil and carrot oil, all from CLR.
