Robert Helford of Oregon created EB5 in the 1950′s. Apparently, he created in the 1950′s. But he’s updated it every year since. He claims to be the first to use vitamins B5 and E, which is why they named their product EB5.
They now sell a wrinkle cream, a throat cream, a firming cream, a 24 hour moisturizer, and a make up base. And frankly, companies reformulate products on such a regular basis, because their formula wasn’t innovative or worthwhile in the first place.
Ingredients and Mechanism of Action:
EB5 ingredients include Deionized Water, Propylene Glycol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Stearic Acid, Mineral Oil, Cetyl Alcohol, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Flour, Panthenol, Allantoin, Retinyl Palmitate, Cholecalciferol, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Potassium Sorbate, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.
The ingredients found in EB5 are by no means revolutionary. They use some moisturizers. But they also use retinyl palmitate, which is irritating to the skin and is mainly used against acne, not against wrinkles. But really, retinyl palmitate is the only active ingredient found in EB5.
Overall Impression of EB5:
EB5 is the basic formula used since the 1950′s. They claim that they have changed their formula. But all of the ingredients found in this formula have been around since the year it was originally created. If they have truly reformulated, adding and taking away different ingredients, their formula was behind the times in the first place. Either way, we would not advise using this product.
