“Inspired by Greek plant life”, Apivita is a line of both skin and hair products. They started selling in 1979, and since have grown to a company that distributes 300 different products in 16 different countries.
Typically speaking, Apivita tends to sell its products through pharmacies, and specializes its formulas to aid men and women with sensitive skin. Backed by clinical studies and recommended by dermatologists, Apivita is one of the few popular products on the market that doesn’t test on animals.
Despite its reputation for being a reliable product created by a reliable company, we can’t help but wonder if Apivita is the best wrinkle cream on the market? Or just another dud that deserves to be placed on the back shelf.
Overall, most of Apivita’s skincare products are classified as standard acne treatments with vitamin-based ingredients. The closest thing we could find in the Apivita line that has wrinkle-fighting abilities is their anti-spot treatment.
From what we can gather about their eye creams, these products generally contain ingredients such as salicylic acid, jojoba seed, almond oil, panthenol, apiwhite, grape seed, vitamin E, allantoin, and glycolic acid. Each of these ingredients are considered effective moisturizers and emollients, but unfortunately, they have very little to do with anti-aging (which makes sense because they’re not designed to be an anti-aging product).
An additional drawback about Apivita products is that the manufacturers rarely ever provide a complete and comprehensive ingredients list. This makes it difficult to determine how effective each ingredient actually is, because the concentrations determine the quality and efficacy of the product. Because many of the ingredients are designed to peel away dead skin cells (eliminating buildup and reducing the likelihood of clogged pores), Apivita products may cause irritation if used on the delicate skin around your eyes, accelerating the rate of aging rather than reducing it.
Price: vary according to product
Overall Impression of Apivita:
Apivita produces a line of different supplements, but the company tends to stick with their popular acne treatments rather than wrinkle and anti-aging creams. Without the backing a guarantee and the increased risk of causing damage to your already vulnerable skin, consumers should exercise caution before purchasing their products. The best way to fight signs of aging is to be certain that the products you’re using are designed specifically for the job, and using an acne product to treat wrinkles is like trying to fit a square peg in a round hole – possible, but not the most reliable method.
