    Neoretin

    Recently had a conversation with a skin specialist with 18 years of experience.

    He mentioned that the one product he found works (for Asian skin anyway) is Neoretin.

    He mentioned how he had experienced patients trying everything under the sun from lemon juice to vitamins to caricogenic chemicals, and that this 'natural' product was the one thing that worked.

    Has anyone tried or know anything about this product?

    I've heard of it, its a European brand. It's nothing I've used, the ingredients are not impressive at all. Its a low % retinol product, filled with a bunch of other fluff ingredients.

    Which product is this person referring too having results with? This is the very long list of fluff ingredients.....I'm the more bang for the buck type. RA/HQ/KA works great, none of the other 50 plus ingredients below needed to accomplish things.


    Aqua; Dimethyl lsosorbide; Butylene Glycol; C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate; Titanium Oioxide; Polysilicone-15; Glycerin; Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine; Butyl Methoxydibenzoylme- thane; Glyceryl Stearate; PEG-100 Stearate; lsoamyl laurate; Oiethylhexyl Butamido Triazone; Dipropylene Glycol Dibenzoate; C14-22 Alcohols; C12-20 Alkyl Glucoside; Ethylhexyl Triazone; Caprylyl Methicone; Physalis Angulara Extract; Caprylyl Glycol; Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate; Retinol; Phenoxyetha- nol; Propylene Glycol; Kojic Acid;Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate; Dimethylmethoxy Chromanyl Palmitate; Hydrolyzed Caesalpinia Spinosa Gum; Silica; Caesa/pinia Spinosa Gum; PPG-15 Stearyl Ether Benzoate; Tocopheryl Acetate; Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate; Ethylhexylglycerln; Hexylene Glycol; Pentylene Glycol; Fructose; Acetyl Hexapeptide-37; Lactitol; CaprylidCapric Triglyceride; Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer; Sodium Carbomer, Trehalose; Sorbitol; Methyl Gluceth-20; Methylsilanol Hydroxyproline Aspartate; Sodium Metabisulfite; Dimethicone; lecithin; Palmitoyl Hydroxypropyl Trimonium Amylopectin/Glycerin Crosspolymer; Xanthan Gum; Polysorbate 20; Hydrogenated lecithin; Parfum.

    The two products he says has worked '100% in all clients' and part of the regimen he advocates are Neoretin Discrom Gelcream (with SPF50) to be applied in the morning, and Serum Booster Fluid at night. He also advised to use SPF throughout the day as required.

    Apparently I should see significant results over a period of 12 weeks. Could all be bogus of course and tbh I am pretty skeptical (hope willpower has no correlation with melanin production). The 2-3 products I have tried intermittently over the years have not made any difference to my skin tone. And frustratingly I only ever get told I've gotten darker when I've been on a hike, outdoor trip etc despite assiduously using sunblocks with zinc oxide etc.

    It's costing £60 for the twelve week course that he recommends, so not the biggest investment in the world. Given that his clinic does have great reviews online for a variety of skin procedures and I dont have time to dabble with a million different products. I figured nothing to lose...

    Anyhow, if I see any results will post on here.

    I still find it hard to believe as there isn't anything powerful in it.......but yes, best of luck to you with it.
