Immuderm: Does Immuderm Work?

Immuderm Overview

Immuderm is an anti-aging cream that uses beta-glucan extract from baker’s yeast. Its additional feature is that it also promotes a radiant glow to the skin. It claims to be more than just a moisturizer, and instead works with the skin to protect it against smoke, stress, sun and environmental factors.

The first impression I get is that ImmuCorp, its parent company, has a very, very flashy website, with a brightly-coloured background comprising lots of illustrated carbon-compound and DNA-helices popping out of the screen. Even the buzzwords are very powerful, with its product encouraging skin to “act younger” as well as look younger. Aside from this there is little in the way of scientific information – the main site states that is “the producer of the world’s leading immune system products” (they do sell an immune system-boosting formula, but it’s “not a drug, vitamin, herb or mineral”), but it’s not clear how this relates to an anti-aging cream.

There are no testimonials on the site, nor is there any information on ingredients other than the beta-glucan. There are also no photos or video to show the effect of the cream. The price is $89.95, but some of the copy is written poorly (“you save 0%!”). There is no information on shipping or returns, and no trial is offered. Their contact page, however, offers email, phone and postal mail communication options.

Immuderm – Product Description

Immuderm

The active ingredient is the beta-glucan derived from bakers’ yeast, but a quick look at the FAQ for clinical trial or ingredient-related information on the beta-glucans used just states that “we would have to give you a short course in chemistry”. Another question asking them to justify the superiority of their product simply makes a vague reference to the “molecular structure” of the beta-glucan without applying its relevance to the cream. Aside from this, there is no full ingredient listing, which could be problematic for any allergy sufferers or vegetarians/vegans.

There’s also no information as to how the extract even works, other than that is has the power to “repair, regenerate and rejuvenate” the skin. The site’s copy states that normal moisturisers simply plump up the skin on a cosmetic level, but doesn’t offer anything substantial to back up this claim.

Immuderm Advantage

  • 24-hour information telephone line
  • Innovative active ingredient
  • Can be used daily

Immuderm – Drawbacks

  • Complete lack of clinical information, which is odd considering it’s from a company providing “immunity”-related products
  • No testimonials
  • High price $89.95 for a 6oz tube

Immuderm – The Bottomline

Immuderm’s 24-hour phone line is a helpful feature to get more information, but it would have been more useful to have included some of that information on the site. The absence of a list of ingredients or potential allergens, or any information on clinical trials makes it difficult for potential customers to discern whether or not the product is suitable for them. And, with a complete lack of testimonials, it also makes that decision difficult for anyone else. Considering there’s no money-back guarantee, the prospect of shelling out $89.95 for a mystery cream without any solid back-up information is not something I’d recommend.

The cosmetic industry currently offers a variety of wrinkle creams from a number of brands. To make the process of selecting a wrinkle cream as simple as possible, we've evaluated each cream on its ability to fulfill our requirements for a quality wrinkle cream. To be specific, we believe that a wrinkle cream should include ingredients that offer antioxidant protection for skin, in order to delay the onset of noticeable aging. At the same time, wrinkle creams should be able to renew skin, typically by containing compounds with collagen-stimulating properties. Additionally, such a cream should improve both the texture and appearance of skin by offering both long term anti-wrinkle benefits and hydrating agents to create smooth, firm skin. Listed below are the top wrinkle creams, according to these important characteristics.

Dermatologist Recommendations for Maintaining Younger, Healthier, Vibrant Looking Skin:

  • Be certain to consistently apply the product(s) you choose in accordance with its directions for use;
  • Pay special attention to your neck and hands while applying the product(s) you choose, as these areas reflect your age;
  • Always use sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of at least 15;
  • Drink at least eight glasses of water a day to stay well hydrated;
  • Avoid excessive intake of caffeinated and alcoholic beverages, as they may contribute to dehydration and exacerbate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; and
