Plexaderm Ingredients – The Breakdown

The ingredients in Plexaderm skincare consist of mostly synthetic materials. Here is a breakdown of some of the most important main ingredients:

  • Hydrolyzed Rice Protein – Hydrolyzed Rice protein is used in many cosmetic products as an absorbing agent, bulking agent and binder. According to Cosmetics Info hydrolyzed rice protein is generally safe and toxicity concerns are low.
  • Titanium Dioxide – This ingredient is used as a physical block to filter out harmful UV rays and as a whitening agent for the skin per Safe Cosmetics.
  • Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 – This is a common ingredient in skin care products. It is also known as Argireline and it is supposed to have anti-aging effects. Also used in a wide range of skincare and makeup products and has water(Aqua) binding properties.
  • Sodium Silicate – it appears as a powdered or flaked solid substance. Strong irritant to skin, eyes, and mucous membranes (source).
  • Magnesium Aluminum Silicate – Reviewed by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review Expert Panel, it has been found in the report that Topical application of Magnesium Aluminum Silicate to human
    skin daily for 1 week produced no adverse effects.
  • Ethylhexylglycerin – works as a skin conditioning agent as well as a preservative.
  • Phenoxyethanol – The Danish EPA suspected phenoxyethanol of being damaging to the environment and health. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) lists it as an irritant and toxic in varying concentrations (source).

Other listed ingredients: water (aqua), sodium silicate, magnesium aluminum silicate, cellulose gum, acetyl hexapeptide-8, Yellow 5 (CI 19140), Red 40 (CI 16035), phenoxyethanol and ethylhexylglycerin.

How Does it Work – The Science Behind Plexaderm

To understand how Plexaderm works, you have to look at the working of key ingredients as mentioned above.

One of the main claims of this product is to reduce the appearance of the bags we sometimes get under our eyes. The reason we get these bags become so apparent the connective tissue under the eyes weakens with age. This results in prominent fat under the skin of our under-eyes. That combined with mild dehydration or a touch of seasonal allergies one could look puffy.

These changes are due to genetics and aging. The Penn State University site published an article that confirms that genes may also play a factor and that it may be a hereditary condition.

In any case, Plexaderm skincare is supposed to help restore the connective tissues under the eye. It may also help reduce the darkness under the eyes through the utilization of titanium dioxide. Chemical Safety Facts points out that titanium dioxide has a whitening effect. It can brighten the skin and hide blemishes as well.

Plexaderm Pros & Cons

Pros

  • This product may be able to lighten the skin under the eyes.
  • At least one of the main ingredients has low toxicity concerns.
  • This product can be used for all skin types.

Cons

  • Most of the ingredients in this serum are synthetic.
  • Titanium dioxide has been ruled as a possibly carcinogenic substance to humans.
  • Some consumers may not like the consistency of Plexaderm.

How to Use Plexaderm?

  1. Wash your face and pat dry
  2. Use a small amount of the serum to start with. Dispense about half the size of a pea.
  3. Apply a thin layer. Spread the serum around your fine lines and wrinkles. Make sure to avoid it from getting into your eyes.

  5. Leave the serum for 10 mins and do not move your face.

  • It helped to reduce wrinkles on the face.
  • It helped to make a significant difference in under eye darkness.
  • It replaces the need for makeup under the eyes.

Others were not so happy with the way it worked and complained of:

  • Clay-like residues left behind.
  • The bottle being too small.

Overall, the reviews are not favorable on third-party sites. If taken as a whole (official site reviews and third-party site reviews) Plexaderm has had an overall negative response.

Plexaderm – Where to Buy and How to Save

Plexaderm can be bought on the official Plexaderm website or on third-party retail sites.

If you choose to buy on the official site, you can save a bit of money by buying 2 because you will get one for free.

If you do buy from third-party sites you might actually pay more since it is more expensive on most retail sites.

NOTE: Always check that a seller is an authorized distributor before purchasing any cosmetics from a third party site.

The Bottom Line on Plexaderm

The official site for Plexaderm Skincare Rapid Reduction Cream seems to be a little skewed toward the product. It boasts the wonderful benefits that the user can get from using their product.

These benefits include fewer lines around the eyes and the mouth area as well as fewer wrinkles on the forehead. It also reports the improvement of crow’s feet and under-eye bags and puffiness.

It also states that each bottle comes with a semi-lengthy return policy of 30 days.

On the other hand, there are a significant amount of negative reviews online. This leads us to believe that at least some of the claims are untrue.

There are also some potentially harmful, synthetic materials in Plexaderm. (Note: I personally have never tried the product.)

Is There Anything Else I Should Know about Plexaderm?

The manufacturers themselves warn that there is a potential risk of skin irritation and redness from using Plexaderm and that if it happens, you should discontinue use.

You should also be aware that Plexaderm’s effects will not last as long under conditions of extreme sweat, oil or moisture.

We believe this product has little potential upside in terms of its price. Maybe if it were less expensive it would be worth the trying.

Keep in mind that if you do buy it, you can return it within 30 days if you are unhappy with the results from the cream.

Of course, it may take longer than 30 days to see any results so make sure to use daily as directed by the package insert and try to photo document your progress of the condition of your skin while using Plexaderm.

    No changes at all in my eyes!!!

    If someone asked to give me ratings about Plexaderm, I will rate this product 1 out of 5. This dried out my under eyes. It didn’t even feel moisturizing when I first applied it, it just felt thick, when it dried down it was flakey. Not only was I not able to apply makeup over the top of it, but it also made my under eyes drier than when I skip the moisturizer. I developed two lines under my eyes from it dehydrating my skin. I am so disappointed with this product. I would never recommend this product to anyone.

    Big Big Big Disappointment for me!!!

    I have done a lot of research about this product before buying it, I have read some plexaderm complaints also, but it has some positive reviews also, that’s why I decided to give it a try. I’ve used this product for a month but am not pleased with this formulation. After using this product, brown rings under my eyes after using for about a week and wrinkles are noticeably worse. My face still looks sleepy and tired. Sad to say I have stopped using this product and I’ll have to find another product. I would never recommend this product to anyone.

    This product is not that good!!

    I have been using this eye cream for a couple of days now. I don’t like the formula. The scent is too strong. There are so many Plexaderm side effects that I had faced. It makes my eyes watery & itchy in the corner of my eyes. This formula is also very greasier and does not set easily. It moisturizes but it is almost sticky. When I put my concealer over it, it makes my concealer crease and makes my face look more oily. It looks as if my concealer is melting! I will not purchase this eye cream again.

    I'll try another options available!

    I tried this in the store and it felt great. Then, I got it home and used it for a week. Other reviewers said it made their face feel greasy, and I couldn’t figure out why. Then, the stuff just started to sit on top of my skin and it felt grossly greasy. It barely soaked into my skin, and I have dry skin! The one point the seller made was that this isn’t a water-based moisturizer, so that’s the main reason I think it wouldn’t absorb. Also, as others have noted, the smell of it isn’t so great. I took it back and exchanged it for another moisturizer.

    Your skin DONT bounce back!!!!

    You may not realize this, but as you get older, your skin starts to lose its elasticity naturally. Sometimes you have to help it along. I have found Plexaderm and got to know how good is Plexaderm. Believe me, when you hit your 40s and 50s, your skin really needs good nourishment. Don’t ignore your skincare or you’ll be sorry later! Plexaderm doesn’t work for me but maybe It can goes with your skin.

    Do not buy Plexaderm!

    I received my Plexaderm serum yesterday and could not wait to try it. It was very disappointing. I got my daughter to take a before & after picture of the one eye I used it on, and there was zero difference. Then I got my 21 year old son to see if he could pick out which eye I used it on (that was about 15 mins. after I put Plexaderm on) and he couldn’t tell a difference. It feels like you put crazy glue under your eye. The serum dries up hard and when you squint that hard skin does not move, so you look really crazy. I don’t know why there are so many good reviews on this product because it sure did not work for me.

    It’s a pretty good eye cream!!!

    I really love this product! I have combination skin and I’m 36 years old. I noticed a significant difference after using Plexaderm for a month. It’s creamy, hydrating and it’s not sticky or oily, which I like. It does great with moisturizing my skin and treating dark under-eye circles.

    Didn't work for me.

    I purchased this product after reading the great reviews. I have been using it every morning and night. I have found no change at all. This did not help my dark circles or my fine lines under my eyes.

    I saw no improvement after months of use.

    I am very disappointed with this product. I read mixed reviews and really wanted to love it. I don’t mind spending a lot of money on something that works great. I do like that it goes on nicely … not greasy but light. It is extremely expensive and it did nothing to improve the appearance of the area around my eyes. I just turned 40 and have nice skin in general but noticed some eye puffiness. I have used this product for several months and have not noticed any improvement around my eyes.

    I started feeling it is working

    I’m a lady in my late 40s, and I had crow’s feet that I hate. I began utilizing Plexaderm about a month prior as I continually search for creams. When I put on the product, I started feeling it is working, indeed pulling back my skin to cause the lines to vanish. Yet, it’s a decent quick fix for wrinkles and my under eyes.

    I'd say it's OK!

    I purchased this item as a swap for another brand I have used for two or three years. It has ended up being a viable item, works rapidly and you need just utilize next to no of it, making it an incredibly decent worth. For me, I just use it for a night out, or any unique time I have to put my best self forward, and I am content with the outcomes.

    Don't spend your money on this product!

    I was curious about the product after seeing it several times in advertisements. I purchased 3 of them since they were 50% off and gave one for my sister to try as well. We both saw NO change at all!

    I do not recommend this product, too good to be true!!!

    Plexaderm didn't help my dark circles

    I purchased Plexaderm because it was supposed to be able to help with the dark circles under my eye, and I was looking forward to something because of the presence of effective ingredients. However, it failed to do anything for me. I have seen the development of many new fine lines around my eyes and the dark circles seem to have even gotten worse. I won’t be purchasing it again because it failed to live up to its claims. The puffiness is still evident and I am becoming frustrated because nothing seems to work that I have tried.
