Our Review of Mannatech Optimum Skin Care System™
Mannatech Inc. is a large manufacturer of health products, including weight, fitness and skincare formulas. It offers a range of skincare products, from cleansing oils and eye creams to after shave formulas and skin serums. It promotes these products as part of its Optimum Skin Care System™, which is claimed to have been designed to “hydrate, nourish and revitalize the skin.”
Products at a Glance
As such, those looking for a complete set of skincare products from a single manufacturer may find the system appealing. However, many people may be hesitant to spend a lot of money on a range of skincare products with similar ingredients. Therefore, we will take a look at Mannatech Optimum Skin Care Systemto determine whether or not it is capable of producing the types of results it claims to.
There are 7 Skin Optimizing System™ products, which are as follows: Face Cleansing Cream, Cleansing Oil, Skin Lotion, Skin Serum, Eye Cream, Skin Cream and After Shave Milk. Using these products as part of the “system” or regimen is claimed to work at the cellular level for a healthier, youthful looking skin. The specific lists of ingredients contained in these products are not disclosed at this time.
Products in Focus
None of these products are specifically claimed to reduce the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. The main focus seems to be on moisturizing dry skins and providing health benefits of antioxidants to the skin. As such, we could not find much to be excited about any of these products. However, we do remain open to the possibility that these products may be beneficial to the overall health of the skin.
We believe that the best products will incorporate only the minimum number of ingredients needed to exfoliate the skin, boost Collagen production and reduce visible signs of aging. Furthermore, we like an anti-wrinkle formula with Argireline®, which is the patented form of Acetyl Hexapeptide-3. Today, the ingredient seems to have become very popular among those interested in reducing the visible signs of aging.
We believe that the manufacturers could have gained people’s trust more if they had put up an exclusive and official website for each of the products. However, we could only locate the official Mannatech website and an exclusive website for the Optimum Skin Care System™, as of this review. Nevertheless, testimonials were unavailable; return and refund policies were not readily and easily accessible; and before and after pictures were not posted.
• Manufacturer has official online presence Final Thoughts
• Product line has an exclusive online presence
When it comes down to it, a potential customer may want to look at the manufacturer as much as at the ingredients. We believe a really good product will not only have an exclusive online presence and excellent customer service, but that it will also be backed by testimonials and real results. In these regards, the Mannatech Optimum Skin Care System™ fails to be an impressive product line.
Instead of having to buy over half a dozen different products and formulas as part of a skincare “system,” it may be a better idea to first try out a specific, all-purpose, anti-aging cream. Such specialized products may also come with free trials. The best of them will probably be featured in numerous magazines. Thus, products with specialized ingredients like Argireline®, along with components of the skin tissue like Sodium Hyaluronate may be worth a trial, as they are both safe and proven to be effective.
