Ceratopic, a SkinMedica product, can only be found through your physician, and as such, they claim that their product is automatically the best. This even though it is not technically FDA approved. In addition, though they claim it’s only sold through physicians, physicians must be selling online, because you can find Ceratopic products through third party retailers. This review will cover the skin repairing lotion.
Ingredients and Mechanism of Action:
Ceratopic Skin Repairing Lotion ingredients include Water, cetearyl alcohol, PEG-20 methyl glucose sesquistearate, glycerin, hydroxypropyl bispalmitamide MEA (ceramide), petrolatum, dimethicone, olea eruopaea (olive) fruit oil, glycine soja (soybean) oil, ceteareth-20, avena sativa (oat) kernel extract, glycine soja (soybean) sterols, carnosine, squalane, sodium hyaluronate, tocopheryl acetate, methyl glucose sesquistearate, carbomer, aminomethl propanol, phenoxyethanol, methlparaben, propylparaben, disodium EDTA. The only wrinkle fighting ingredient found in Ceratopic is Ceramide. But it isn’t found until the middle of the list, when it should be at the top, considering ingredients are listed in order of highest concentration to lowest. The rest of the ingredients are just moisturizers, which mean nothing in terms of wrinkle care.
Overall Impression of Ceratopic:
The Ceratopic Skin Repairing Lotion is a descent moisturizer, but not a wrinkle fighting agent. It has only one of the right ingredients, and in any industry, that is simply not enough. They claim it is only sold by doctors, but that obviously doesn’t hold up, considering it can be found on many different websites for prices similar to over the counter products, whereas without insurance, most prescriptions and doctor dispensed products come with a considerably higher price tag.
