Collagen Regeneration Cream Review: Is it Good or Bad? Is It Effective or Not? Reviva’s Collagen Regeneration Cream has got some positive reviews on some personal care sites and some online stores. Is it as good as it claims to be? Is it safe? Or is it bad for you?
Well, we will try to answer the above questions in this post.
Here’s what we are going to do. First we check out what the makers of Collagen Regeneration Cream are saying about what their product can do. Then we check out what some internetizens are saying in their Collagen Regeneration Cream Reviews. And, lastly, we will look at what government agencies (particularly regulators) are saying about the Collagen Regeneration Cream.
So what exactly does Collagen Regeneration Cream do according to the people behind the product? Here’s what they claim it can do (revivalabs.com):
Stimulating your skin’s own collagen and aiding new collagen production is a different story — and the focus of this cream.
Its Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 sends signals to dermal fibroblasts to synthesize new collagen (the peptide isn’t absorbed to reach fibroblasts; it acts like a messenger).
Result? After 4-6 weeks, you can see skin looking smoother, retexturized, any lines or wrinkles looking reduced… a substantially improved skin appearance.
So what are People of the Internetz saying in their Revivalabs Collagen Regeneration Cream reviews? Well, the product has a pretty good score on amazon.com (4.2 out of 5 stars). As may be expected, reviewers who gave the product 5 stars are saying that it worked on them and that it improved their skin. On the other hand, critical reviewers declare that it either does not work or the cream is not consistent or is a total waste of money.
Now, of course, we here are Health Side Effects are more concerned about what government regulators are saying about Revivalabs Collagen Regeneration Cream so we checked what the FDA has to say.
Turns out that the agency recently sent a warning letter to Revivalabs which says in part:
Your above-listed 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.
So there, you go! Turns out the FDA has not approved this product and that there may be no scientific proof that it is effective as claimed.
