Skin Effects is a product that is manufactured by its own company that has the same name, Skin Effects. The company is located out of South Africa in Ersamusrand Pretoria. The intended purpose of this product is supposed to be to help aging women to reduce the appearance of the wrinkles on their face. There have been claims made that state things like it can deliver visible results, that it can smooth wrinkles, contributes to the elasticity of the skin, and provides moisture while tightening the skin and complimenting a new complexion and texture. Now it is time to take a deeper look into the ingredients that were listed on the website and see if we can fund anything in there that has been proven, patented, or backed by clinical results.
Here is a list of the ingredients that was available to us through the official website: Soybean Oil, Glycerin, and Retinol. There is reason to believe that this is not be the complete list of ingredients because there was a statement on the website saying that this formula may contain extra ingredients. However, it is believed that this may be all that we need to provide a proper assessment.
The soybean oil that is found in this product is still purely hypothetical as far as being an anti-wrinkle agent, but is considered to be a good moisturizer. There is also another ingredient known as glycerin that is contained in this product. The main function of this ingredient is thought to be a moisturizer. This ingredient is not backed by any studies and is still controversial in the skin care industry. Some experts says that it is a great moisturizer because it has the ability to absorb moisture from the air and retain it in order to hydrate the skin, and other experts say that if Glycerin can absorb the moisture from the air, then hypothetically it could even suck the moisture from your skin. The last ingredient is Retinol. This ingredient is also known as Retinyl and Vitamin A. The known side effects of this ingredient are dry patches on the skin, redness, swelling, and itching.

The Bottom Line
It appears as though the only ingredient that could hold any true relevance to fighting wrinkles is the same one that can cause numerous irritations to your skin. The other ingredients are purely hypothetical and also controversial with no scientific proof or clinical studies to back them up. It is hard to believe that women will buy this product knowing that it may be rated by some people as being low grade or ineffective. Most women will not buy on a hypothetical situation anyway.
