Ella Bache Review
Begun in 1936 France, Ella Bache introduced itself as a family owned and run company. More than 90 years later, they boast sales to over 40 different countries and 5 categories of skincare products including cleansers, classic range, soin bio repateur, radical age defiance system, and hydra. So as you can see, pending the idea that they have descent formulas, you could find anything for your skincare needs in one place. But there are no customer testimonials and no full ingredients lists to be had.
Ingredients and Mechanism of Action:
It seems a common trend with companies that have been around for 10 years or more. They feel like everybody knows them, so they don’t need to provide ingredients lists anymore, because nobody will ask and those that will are insignificant anyway. This they really do, however, to ensure that you never know that they have no active wrinkle fighting ingredients or extremely small portions thereof. This also applies to other categories. In short, they don’t have the ingredients that would attack the mission at hand. As an example, they put their best face forward when they tell you that the main ingredients of the Ella Bache Radical Age Defiance products include Grenoble walnut and celery. Those are nothing even close to wrinkle fighters.
Overall Impression of Ella Bache:
Ella Bache is another company that has been around for a long time and so thinks themselves above the times, above the rest of the market, and ultimately above the consumer. There is nothing to suggest that any of their products would do anything for your skin, and yet people keep buying it, because that’s what their mothers used. To some degree, our skin types are still the same. But wrinkles were not reduced or positively affected by these formulas 20 or 30 years ago, why would that change now, especially when we have more impressive technology available to us?
