In addition, Pensida products also cater for signs of aging affecting eyes and face with its anti-aging eye renewal cream and age-defying formula.
While the aging process is an inevitable medley, it affects the internal and external systems of our body quite differently. Where the internal processes are silently taking place, our skin starts to bear the verification of aging patently. Therefore, the landmarks of our general well-being are, mostly judged by the condition of our skin and physique and these two characteristics are the focus of the cosmetic and aesthetic industry.

About the company
Pensida claims of ‘bringing the beauty from within’ with the help of their anti-aging tools that are designed by an extensive research conducted by their team of doctors.
The company is US-based and the ‘trialed and tested’ products of Pensida are the outcome of arduous research and ‘absolute expertise’ of three doctors who share a common last name, Cappuccino, that gives an obvious impression of them being related to each other ( a family name). However, each of them is an expert in his/her own and entirely different fields, they are somehow ambitious and motivated enough to get a skincare line going.
About the Pensida skin care line
The Pensida skin care products target four primary areas of focus that are affected by aging and these include
- The classical of any anti-aging regime ‘ Pensida Age Defying Formula’
- For The prime focus of all facial features ‘ Pensida Eye Renewal Cream’
- For a flawless and even toned skin ‘ Pensida Anti-Redness Cream’
- For the most stubborn of all problems ‘ Pensida Anti-Cellulite Cream’
Anti-aging defense is an approach that seems to work wonders for the cosmetic companies in luring the customers into purchasing their products. According to Euromonitor International, anti-aging products are occupying a 9.8 billion dollar share of the cosmetic industry. That is an overall increase of 109% increase since 1997 (WebMD).
A little detail about the individual product and its ingredients will be offered as below
Pensida anti-cellulite cream
Losing weight and cutting off the resistant cellulite becomes a cumbersome issue as we age but Pensida has some tall claims to make about its anti-cellulite cream. A combination of caffeine, Provislim, and Reguslim, it helps in the breakdown of accumulated fat and checks in further accumulation of fat in the body. Provislim is an active ingredient that silhouettes your figure by reducing the edema, skin roughness and thickness associated with cellulite. Reguslim is another ingredient that reduces the accumulation of fat within cell layers and the orange peel appearance of cellulite-affected skin.
What is cellulite? Cellulite is a condition that is related to fat accumulation, affecting females after puberty. 90% of women face this problem sometime in their lives with irregular fat depositions under the skin giving it an orange-peel like appearance, mostly affecting the thighs and buttocks. Many physical and mechanical therapies are under research for effective removal of cellulite but none has been reported to deliver the desired results. Recently cosmetic companies have launched topical creams to combat cellulite but the role of such creams is questionable because they lack the backing of any scientific study or research.
“Dr. Lisa M. Donofrio, an assistant professor of dermatology at Yale University School of Medicine, and Tulane University School of Medicine said in 2003 that there is no scientific proof that anti-cellulite creams work, and there is no concrete way to measure cellulite, either. She tells her patients that cellulite is normal, and is likely the product of genetics and hormones.
Dr. Garry S. Brody, a professor of plastic surgery at the University of Southern California agrees with this statement: “Women who believe that they can eliminate cellulite through creams, or even weight loss, are likely to be disappointed.”
He continued: “So-called cellulite is the natural anatomic contour characteristic of many women’s thighs and buttocks. It is unrelated to weight gain or loss. There is absolutely no surgical or medical solution to women’s dislike of this appearance except for the psychological self-deception of wanting to believe the ads.” MEDICAL NEWS TODAY”
Pensida Age-defying formula
Claims made by Pensida about its Age-defying formula are based on its three active ingredients
The first one promotes the production of collagen, fibronectin and hyaluronic acid in the skin thus easing away any fine lines and wrinkles appearing with age. Our research about this peptide has shown that it is a potent combo of two peptides actually that can increase the amount of collagen in the skin twofold (put forth by researchers at Reading University, 2013).
The second in line ingredient protects the skin from the damaging effects of sun rays while regulating the pigmentation of skin at the same time.
The RonaCare cyclopeptide-5 helps in skin repair processes by actively reactivating the cell regeneration mechanisms endogenously.
All the three ingredients are supported by scientific research and explorations in the relative fields. However, the Pensida age defying formula is not backed by any trials for its effectiveness.
Pensida eye renewal cream
The particular eye cream under review has the almost perfect combination of retinol, glycerin, and dimethicone to reduce eye puffiness, dark circles, fine wrinkles, and lines form the most sensitive eye locality.
Pensida anti-redness cream
Redness of the skin and particularly of the facial skin is not a topic that is addressed by cosmetic companies because it is generally a medical issue, which should be dealt as such. However, Pensida anti-redness cream is a basic anti-inflammatory application that makes use of Coralline extract, haloxyl, and quercetin to reduce the signs and symptoms of general inflammation.
What we like about Pensida
- Quality ingredients used in their products
- A 30-day refund and return policy
- Dermatologist tested
What makes us skeptical about Pensida
- Products are not tested for their effectiveness by any independent third party laboratory
- The concept of cellulite treatment is still under scrutiny of tests and trials, although the company claims its product for cellulite reduction to be proven effective
- Allergic reactions to any of its ingredient may occur so the company advises using a cautious approach
- The fact that the anti-redness cream by Pensida is being advocated as a cosmetic item
The cost of Pensida products
The cost details of individual items by Pensida can be accessed at their website with the complete payment and delivery particulars. The average cost range of the products is from $79-$129.
Our final pronounce on Pensida
Most of the anti-aging skin care lines improve the hydration status of the skin and thus temporarily arrest the signs and symptoms of aging or bring about improvements in skin texture as a whole. FDA approval is not required for the cosmetic skin care but recently it sent a cautious warning to such companies for making claims about bringing actual structural changes in the body (as skin collagen and elastin). The reason behind such an approach is the fact that such products are labeled as drugs and must pass through the scrutiny and control of FDA. In the same context, FDA sent a warning to a prominent cosmetic company for its anti-redness cream, which should be labeled as a topical therapy for a medical skin condition.
“There’s definitely an overabundance of products and ingredients that promise to deliver, said Dr. Elizabeth Hale, a dermatologist at New York University Medical Center.”It can be overwhelming for patients and doctors—it’s hard to know which works, and which doesn’t.”
Therefore, where the responsibility lies with the manufacturers to deliver quality products, the same lies with the customers to research ingredients that may work best for them.
Pensida offers a skin care line that makes use of tested ingredients for their products though we could not find independent customer reviews and testimonials. If you are enjoying a healthy skin otherwise, Pensida products may give you an edge over the passing years.
