People will say anything to get a rise out of everyone. People also make terrible scientists, which is why we usually leave testing of skincare ingredients up to trained professionals who work in controlled environments.
Reviews have been written all over the web, and these brand is going boo-koo.
Case in point: a woman recently made a casual observation that Argireline, dubbed “Botox in a jar”, actually made her wrinkles worse. Well word got ’round and soon people were all over the comment section of a popular skincare blog. False rumors get spread this way…”oh, I heard that stuff actually makes your wrinkles WORSE!”. The thread was actually removed apparently because it was just so ridiculous the blog administrator was embarrassed to have it on her site.
This is a case of Betteridge’s law of headlines at work, only in slightly altered form. Betteridge’s Law: you know: a controversial headline that asks a question, the answer to which is probably “no”…designed to suggest the truth of something that’s not actually true. Fox News uses this technique a lot. So do clickbait “news” websites…The Daily Mail is famous for this as well.
Argireline is a key component of the wrinkle-reducing cream sold by Jeunesse: Instantly Ageless™.
The forthright woman making the unfounded claim wasn’t actually talking about Jeunesse…just her experience with Argireline in an unnamed product. To get a fair look at Jeunesse’s product, however, rather than referring to the madness of crowds it’s always better to turn to science…especially when chemistry, skincare, and money are in the cards.
Argireline: What is it?
For those who put their trust in the concepts of modern science, you’ll be glad to know that Argireline has a scientific name. Not only that, but acetyl hexapeptide-8, as Argireline is known in the lab, has been the subject of not just a few scientific studies.
The reason it’s called “Botox in a jar” is that Argireline works in very much the same way but without the neurotoxin risk that comes with injecting botulisim into your face (as is the case with Botox). That is, Argireline puts a major damper on reactions in your body which cause muscles to contract.
So: spread Instantly Ageless™ on your face and frown lines become less pronounced. Sounds absurdly impossible (bordering on magic?) but it’s true…and there are studies that have shown it to be true. The National Institutes of Health have published such studies, showing the “significant” anti-wrinkle efficacy of Argireline.
Relaxed muscles aren’t the same as sagging muscles.
By preventing the contraction of muscles, Argireline creates a smoother texture to the skin. Concerns about sagging due to “relaxed muscles”…well the absence of contraction is not sagging…it’s simply a muscle at neutral position.
Sagging is less than neutral: a negative state, if you will. Like Tru Vision.
Jeunesse’s Instantly Ageless™ is backed by sound laboratory studies- would you put one person’s totally subjective claim above all those scientists who worked so hard to bring you the real facts?
