Ultraderm Lux is a skin care range consisting of four products that promise to deliver the results equivalent to getting a Botox procedure.
Since the manufacturers of Ultraderm Lux have compared the results of their products to Botox, let us have a sneak peak at Botox procedure. Botox is a drug that is made out of a neurotoxin, a chemical that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. The aesthetic use of this botulinum toxin is to erase any wrinkles from one’s face by temporarily paralyzing the muscles of the troubled spot, primarily the periorbital area, around the nose or the labial folds. Botulinum toxin is the most poisonous toxin known to us, but it is the art of science that has enabled us to use this toxin to our advantage.
Where Botox is an invasive procedure and requires expert skills and practice to deliver, there are many options available in the form of serums and creams that do not carry any side effects associated with Botox course of action. Although Botox delivers its results within few hours and anti-aging skin line takes time to be effective, the results of anti-aging regime via non-invasive procedures are more lasting and durable.
The following review will analyze Ultraderm Lux for its worth and merit to be weighed against Botox that is the latest vogue.
The competence of the manufacturer
The manufacturer of Ultraderm Lux is a company known as Real Skin Labs with its contacts given at the official web page. The manufacturing of its products is based in the US, under the certification of Good manufacturing Practice. However, we could not find its profile among BBB accreditation.

Ultraderm Lux claims its products to be ‘proven formulas’ but gives no evidence of any research trial or studies involving their products. There are no independent third party evaluations by any other laboratory for the particular skin care range.
The ingredients of Ultraderm Lux
Despite all the bold claims, we were disappointed to see that the official web page of Ultraderm Lux contains no information whatsoever on the primary ingredient content of its serum and moisturizing cream. Therefore, as far as the matching of the claims of the product with its ingredients, Ultraderm Lux is not up to snuff here.
The Ultraderm Lux boldly represents their product line to be a recommendation by ‘experts’, here again, no introduction to the doctor, dermatologist or cosmetologist is provided. The name of the doctor is not mentioned on the website anywhere. Therefore, we cannot be sure if any such recommendation even exists.
Ultraderm Lux terms the ingredients in its products as ‘natural’; we researched the ingredients of Ultraderm Lux but no information could be gathered. Therefore, the authenticity of ‘natural’ ingredients of Ultraderm Lux cannot be established.
The cost of different products of Ultraderm Lux
The Rejuvenating Facial Serum costs about $99 and Rapid Age Defying Moisturizer will cost the customers $69. Wrinkle Freeze Peptide Moisturizer is available at a cost of $101 while that of Ageless Eye Restoring Serum is $127.
The cost effectiveness of Ultraderm Lux
The cost effectiveness of any product can be evaluated by getting a hang of its ingredients and customers feedback.
The case scenario of ingredients is cleared, the website provides insight into consumers’ testimonials but then, they are not independent reviews and a not make the grade of approval.
Our final say on Ultraderm Lux
The anti-aging formulas of current cosmetics are updating their research and ingredients utilized every passing hour. However, finding an anti-aging solution in a cream or serum container is a difficult task and most over the counter formulations available do a modest job. The effectiveness of an anti wrinkle and anti aging formula depends upon its ingredients, some of the most renowned are (according to a list provided by Mayo Clinic)
- Vitamin C
- Coenzyme Q10
- Hydroxyl acids
- Tea extracts
- Grape seed extract
Apart from these, many herbal extracts and hottest ingredients are seaweed and sea algae extracts. We are not implying that Ultraderm Lux skincare line is devoid of any distinguished ingredients but a deeper insight into some components could lead the consumers towards a better decision about a worthy purchase.
Furthermore, the over-the-counter anti-aging products do not require FDA approval and FDA support for any product is for its safety and not efficacy. Ultraderm Lux is not backed by any such support but claims that its ingredients are all natural and proven for efficacy yet do not have any means to authenticate their claims.
The cost of Ultraderm Lux products is quite expensive. There are skincare lines that are marketed with full verification of their ingredients at a cost range of $30-$100. But then there is no relationship of cost and effectiveness of a product, if a product is proved competent by consumers in delivering the desired results, it will be in demand.
As the Ultraderm Lux range is available online and not directly at some retail store, there is no way of finding if these products cause any side effects. However, there is a plus, Ultraderm Lux offers a 30-day money back guarantees in case of any dissatisfaction and discontent with any of the product.
The conclusion on Ultraderm Lux is that,
In a competitive and up-to-date cosmetic market, Ultraderm could do better with more insight into their products otherwise, the consumer world is better off with purchasing authentic ingredients for the most sensitive part of their body, the facial skin.
