How would you like to put chemicals around your eyes?

Yes, we recently reviewed the WrinkleSystem’s eye cream, and before we proceed any further with the benefits, here are some of its listed ingredients:

Isopropyl Myristate, Glycosaminoglycans, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Squalane, Panthenol (Calcium Pantothenate), Allantoin, Polysorbate 60, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.

Well, at first we thought it was like a chemical composition of a serious pharmaceutical compound or something, then we started to break it down further into english like sentences:

Isopropyl Myristate is something we usually spot in mouthwash, and other oral hygiene products.  What is this have to do with skin care? The answer is it helps with the absorption.  So, you may have a wonderful product, what good is it, if does not get absorbed in a timely manner to prove its purpose?

GlycosAminoGlycans aka mucopolysaccharides, it is scientifically known as a GAG, it is an important component of connecting tissue, it attracts water and hence all the good qualities that is needed in an essential product.

Simmondsia Chinensis, let us call it Jojoba, is a desert plant extract, while Jojoba oil in large quantities can act as a bio-diesel, let us say this colorless odorless oil serves as a moisturizer and a carrier.

PolyDiMethylSiloxane (PDMS), is used as a silicon based organic polymer and is famous for its flow properties.  Believe it or not, it is in your shampoo, several lubricating products, and in food (as anti-foaming agent).  Here it serves as a protector, let us call it as Skin Protector.

PhenoxyEthanol, this is most likely omnipresent as far as skin care products and eye creams are concerned, as it is mainly used as a preservative.

Well, you may ask, does one need to know all the compounds and ingredients that are present in a typical eye cream?  Yes and no.  Yes because, it helps to understand key functions of a given cream and its value for its money.  As some of these ingredients are precious, it helps to understand why a given cream can be as expensive.  You can have hundred eye creams, while their composition varies, unique eye creams have unique purpose and they do show special results.  No because, an average person does not need to worry about jargons and scientific terms.  After all, who cares about their chemical composition and IUPAC names?

In conclusion, we approve this eye cream, and for the last several years it is proven to produce good results.
