Everderm CL comes from Vitabase, claiming great products at affordable prices. Everderm in particular is supposed to reduce wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks all in one amazing product. The truth is, if they used the right kind of peptides in the right concentrations in combination with certain advanced technologies, increased skin turnover could certainly lessen the appearance of all three. But what are the chances that a company uses all of these? Realistically, were they to do that, it would cost them at least $50 to manufacture if not more. Either way, they offer you a 60 day money back guarantee.

There are quite a few moisturizers and even a couple peptides in the Everderm formula. But their formula is not one which could even come close to attacking wrinkles, stretch marks, or acne scars or really increasing skin turnover. Their peptides are more of novelty ingredients, found only in negligible amounts, and therefore you can see why it cost them less than $20 to manufacture rather than the realistic $50 or more it would cost to manufacture what they describe.
Overall Impression of Everderm:
Everderm uses a weak formula with novelty amounts of a couple important ingredients. It is filled with moisturizers and preservatives instead of peptides, DMAE, or even retinol(which would increase skin turnover, but not necessarily get rid of wrinkles or the like). They promise high quality at affordable prices. But there are some things you simply cannot find or create for that low a price.
