How Does It Work? | The Science Behind Genucel

As we age, muscles weaken around our eyes which leads to puffiness and eye bags. The skin around our eyes loses elasticity which causes wrinkles and fine lines.

Genucel contains ingredients that claim to target eye bags and puffiness. The cream includes Eyeseryl, a peptide that reduces inflammation

The product also contains PhytoCellTec Malus Domestica plant stem cells which can tighten the skin around the eye area.

Genucel Ingredients – The Breakdown

There are several primary ingredients in this product. They include:

Eveseryl peptide – Is made by Lipotec. It is a tetrapeptide that reduces puffiness and dark circles around the eyes. It decreases edema secondary to poor lymphatic circulation. It prevents collagen glycation and therefore, helps the skin around the eye from losing its elasticity.

Malus Domestica apples – In a study by Future Science OA, an extract from apple stem cells reduces wrinkles and crow’s feet in the eye area.

Goji berry extract – According to Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity, goji berry extract suppresses the formation of sun induced collagen damage and wrinkle formation.

Green tea leaf extract – Was found to have anti-aging and photoprotection benefits against harmful effects of the sun according to a study in Molecules.

Algae extract – According to a study in Marine Drugs, algae extract has antioxidant, anti-melanogenic and anti-aging properties.

Hydrolyzed marine collagenMarine Drugs has a study on marine collagen that indicates marine fish-derived peptides have antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-photoaging activity.

    Doesn't work at all. Will not continue to use.

    I have been using this product for over a month and it has not made a difference at all. I will not continue to use it. They supposedly have a money back guarantee, but I can’t find out how to get it.

    By Diane Bowers 

    Poor customer treatment: Genucel did not work

    Didn’t work for me. Poor customer service. Somehow they said I was a preferred customer, and said I could not receive the warranty. Isn’t that preferred treatment. If I didn’t like the product, why would I want to be preferred?

    By Linda Werntz 

    I'm pleased with Genucel

    It has helped my skin feel a bit more elastic, so I’m pleased with that. I’m 64 and an ex-smoker so am encouraged to see the wrinkles around my mouth not so obvious. I’ll continue use if this product to see if it will help other areas like in the triceps area.

    By Angela 

    It looks like my skin is off to a GOOD START

    I’m using this product to improve my skin overall. This product seems to be helping…it’s off to a good start. My skin feels better and looks better..just need to see longer-term!

    By Marjorie Mahoney 

    Completely Worthless Product - Don't Waste Your Money

    Genucel Chamonix Skin Care is just plain useless, recommended by Mark Levin from the radio so I purchased it. Did not do anything to help my face at all and I’m not sure how something like this can even be for sale.

    By Linda Lugo 

    Stop Autoshipment

    I’m sure the product is great but I don’t want to have it automatically come! Please confirm before sending this product to me.

    By Carolina 

    Save your money, It did not help.

    My puffiness (and it was mild) did not improve one bit. I was putting it regularly for 3 weeks and did nothing. It does not deliver what promised. The official site will reject any bad reviews. It happened to me.

    By Diana Brest 

    Genucel is a big ripoff and scam, not worth it

    Genucel Chamonix Skin Care is not free. You will get charged without knowing. They put chargers coming out of your card every month without you knowing.

    By M Grzybowski 

    Hard to cancel- tried many times

    Hard to cancel despite many attempts to cancel. Poor product…No change in any skin, jawline, eyes. The product leaves one greasy. Someone TELL me HOW to CANCEL Genucel Chamonix Skin Care

    By Deborah Gole 

    It is a waste of money when you move your face it flakes off and it does it last

    Waste of money…Sure it works and seconds it just dries your skin real tight and then when you move your face after it’s dry it gets all white and flaky it’s a waste of money don’t be a fool I’ve tried to my sisters tried it my mothers tried it it’s horrible.
