What is Revitol?
Revitol natural skincare is a product line that includes anti-aging solutions, acne treatments, cellulite solutions, stretch mark prevention, hair removal cream, skin brightener cream, and a skin exfoliator. Revitol also manufactures and distributes a wide variety of herbal supplements, liquid formulas, and capsule products. All raw materials are tested for purity prior to production by their own quality control engineers.
Revitol’s website gives a detailed explanation of its quality control process from how the raw materials are chosen to how the final products are stored.
Revitol’s anti-aging solution includes three products: a moisturizing creme, an anti wrinkle complex, and an anti wrinkle treatment serum. The active ingredients are purported to help to firm, hydrate, and tighten facial and reduce the appearance of fines lines.It is sold at $20.99 at its official site.
The wrinkle treatment serum and the moisturizing creme have nearly the same ingredients. The main difference is that the moisturizing creme also includes Shea Butter, Squalene and Evening Primrose Oil, while both contain Argireline and the proprietary blend of Matrixyl, Hyaluronic Acid, Hydrolyzed Wheat Gluten, and Ceratonia siliqua, Macrocystis pyrifera, Edelweis Extract, Skin Tightener ST, Pentacare NA.However sometimes it causes bruising, redness and itching on skin. It should also be noted that all three of the anti-aging products contain Imidazolidinyl Urea, which is a cosmetics preservative that acts as a formaldehyde releaser. Imidazolidinyl Urea was recently re-classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer to its highest toxic class, IARC 1 (known human carcinogen).
Revitol’s serum and complex are to be applied by dispensing 1-2 pumps and massaging thoroughly over the face and neck during the day or night (night only for the serum), or as recommended by your skin care professional. For the moisturizing creme, place a small amount of cream on the fingertips and massage thoroughly over the face and neck each morning and night, or as recommended by your skin care professional. Avoid eye areas for all three products.

Final Verdict: Revitol Reviews
The Revitol website has a list of “Frequently asked questions,” including such inquiries as “What causes wrinkles?”, “Will Botox injections solve my problem with wrinkles?” and “Will skin peels solve my wrinkle problem?”. We doubt that these are frequently questions and are a bit bothered by this obvious attempt to discredit competitors. We would rather see data on why Revitol is a good product.
We were hopeful when we first went to Revotol’s professional-looking website and were further encouraged by the ninety-day guarantee and the openness of the ingredient listings. No matter how a product is developed or marketed, though, it comes down to its ingredients, plain and simple.
Revitol contains some very beneficial ingredients to be sure, but it also contains some very questionable ones as well. It does not offer a money-back guarantee.
