Esotique is made by a company called Chamonix and is supposed to be a very advanced anti-wrinkle treatment that comes in the form of a cream. It contains grape seed extract and retinol. Grape seed extract is an anti-oxidant while retinol, a form of Vitamin A, is used in many products as an anti-aging property that is said to increase the rate of skin turnover and provide a boost in collagen production, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
The key ingredients used in Esotique are listed as grape seed extract, retinol, vitamin E, and hyaluronic acid. Esotique is said to cause no irritation or drying to the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a moisturizing ingredient that is found naturally in human skin and is used to repair tissue damage. Esotique also contains Matrixyl, and claims this ingredient has been proven in clinical trials to decrease wrinkle depth. The Esotique website states that this anti-wrinkle cream does not contain mineral oil, petroleum by-products, pharmaceutical preservatives, and does not perform testing on animals. Websites other than the manufacturer’s claim that Esotique also contains Jojoba Oil, Avocado Oil, and Calendula Extract.

The Bottom Line
Esotique claims to have proven ingredients that can help to visibly reduce the signs of premature aging and wrinkles. The only “before & after” photo that was available for Esotique was a “dramatization” however, and did not accurately depict the claimed improvements to wrinkled skin. Esotique claims to increase collagen production by over 327%, and does offer a money back guarantee if you are unhappy with the product. There are several favorable customer testimonials and online reviews for the Esotique product. Other products which use Hyaluronic Acid and Matrixyl have been shown in clinical trials to be highly effective in treating wrinkles on the skin. While the ingredient list for Estotique does look fairly promising, there’s a lot more information we would like to see from the product manufacturer. For the prices that Esotique is asking, we would like to see a full list of ingredients, as well as some accurate results photos and an easier method for obtaining the products.
