Bellaplex is yet another product to call themselves specifically a “botox alternative”, because they use a muscle relaxant known as argireline. They are sold by an Urban Nutrition LLC, and they also promise to reduce wrinkles, age spots, and moisturize at the same time. It is supposed to also be appropriate for any skin type.
Ingredients and Mechanism of Action:
Bellaplex has argireline as we expected. But it also has matrixyl, hyaluronic acid, collagen, and currently unnamed ingredients.
We definitely see a problem with the fact that they don’t provide a full ingredients list, which would give us an idea of if they might use 1% matrixyl or 10%, how many fillers they use, how many irritants, etc. The 4 named ingredients are good, but again, they are putting their best face forward.
Overall Impression of Bellaplex:
Bellaplex is one of those formulas. It has a great start, but it falls asleep just short of the finish line. There is no full list of ingredients or really any complete set of information. Our assumption is that the “active ingredients” are probably at the bottom of the list, meaning only microscopic concentrations. Either way, we would not buy Bellaplex at this time, especially not for such a high price.
