Ageless Derma Stem Cell: Safe and Effective?




Is the Ageless Derma Stem Cell and Peptide Anti Wrinkle Cream safe and effective? Well, if you ask the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) there is no proof that it is safe and there is no proof that it is effective as advertised either.

First, what are the claims made by the manufacturer and/or distributors of the Ageless Derma Stem Cell and Peptide Anti Wrinkle Cream? What can it do? What does it suggest to buyers as to what it can do?

Well, the FDA has compiled a list of claims from various websites and product labels. Here’s what advertisements are claiming about the wonders of Ageless Derma Stem Cell:

  • Clinically proven to reduce all types of hyperpigmentation…to lighten the skin.
  • Improves the firmness and elasticity of skin, removes crow’s feet.
  • Reduces the depth of wrinkles…by attenuating muscle contraction
  • Prevents damage to collagen and elastin production…reduction in fine wrinkles…application before sun exposure protects against sun damage
  • Significant decrease in wrinkle density, depth, volume roughness
  • Decrease in wrinkle depth
  • Is an effective and needle-free alternative to collagen injections…increased collagen sysnthesis (sic)
  • Significantly reduces muscle contraction as an injection-free alternative to Botox
  • Eradicate your lines and wrinkles
  • Revitalize your body’s natural abilities to heal itself…proven in laboratory studies to stimulate growth in cultures of aged human epidermal stem cells…demonstrated measurably reduced wrinkle depth
  • Reduces the depth of wrinkles…by attenuating muscle contraction
  • Significantly reduces muscle contraction as an injection-free alternative to Botox

And many more…

So have the makers of Ageless Derma found the formula to the Fountain of Youth that would make our wrinkles fly away and free us from the tyranny of crow’s feet forever?

Eh, not really. As we stated in the first paragraph, there is no proof that Ageless Derma stem cell is effective. In fact, it can be harmful to your health. It is for this reason that the FDA issued a letter warning to the company marketing the Ageless Derma (Crescent Health Center, Inc). Here’s the relevant portion of said letter:

Your “Ageless Derma Stem Cell and Peptide Anti-Wrinkle Cream” and “Ageless Derma Face Brightening Cream” products are not generally recognized as safe and effective for the above referenced uses and, therefore, the products are “new drugs” under section 201(p) of the Act [21 U.S.C. § 321(p)]. New drugs may not be legally introduced or delivered for introduction into interstate commerce without prior approval from FDA, as described in sections 301(d) and 505(a) of the Act [21 U.S.C. §§ 331(d), 355(a)]. FDA approves a new drug on the basis of scientific data and information demonstrating that the drug is safe and effective.

The agency also warned Crescent Health Center that Ageless Derma Stem Cell is misbranded. Read:

Even if your “Ageless Derma Face Brightening Cream” and “Ageless Derma Stem Cell and Peptide Anti-Wrinkle Cream” products did not make therapeutic claims, which make them unapproved new drugs, they are misbranded within the meaning of section 602(b) of the Act [21 U.S.C. §362(b)] in that the label does not include: your firm’s current address, and, if the distributor is not the manufacturer, a statement on the label with the qualifying phrase “manufactured for…” or “distributed by…”, as required by 21 CFR 701.12.

That’s it for now. Proceed with caution in buying a product that is misbranded and which makes unproven claims.
