Does Lifecell Really Work?

Lifecell Skin CareThere’s a lot of stuff to sort through on the Lifecell official website. Testimonials, images, videos etc. It can be a bit much to try and take in. The fact is all most women want to know is does Lifecell really work?

I’ve been doing a lot of research on not only Lifcell but each of it’s active ingredients to try and determine conclusively if Lifecell works or not.

The short answer I’ve arrived at is YES, Lifecell definitely can work to reduce the visible appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone and reduce redness and moisturize wonderfully.

However, what I’ve also discovered in my research is that it isn’t going to work for every single person who tries it. Probably about 75% of women will experience some level of success using Lifecell, but there are always going to be some women who don’t see the expected results. This could be because they didn’t use it consistently or long enough to see results or their skin just didn’t react the same way to the active ingredients as other peoples.

Why Does Lifecell Work

So as I said I did some digging around to determine if Lifecell works, why and how does it work.

It turns out that while there website uses a lot of hype to sell the product, the raw ingredients (such as DMAE, Argireline and Vitamin C) have a lot of supporting evidence as to why they produce visible and favourable results.

Let’s take a closer look.


This is the first ingredient discussed at the bottom of the official Lifecell website. Deanol is another name for a very well known anti aging ingredient DMAE. This product has been called “face lift in a jar” and also recognized as a powerful anti aging ingredient by some well know individuals in the industry.

The studies I found on DMAE (one Canadian and another from Brazil) suggested that DMAE increased dermal thickness along with collagen fiber thickness. The results for you are that your skin appears “fuller” and the with consistent application wrinkles and fine lines are less visible.

Ubiquinone (aka idebenone):

Idebenone is a powerful antioxidant which helps protect from free radical damage. It also has great anti inflammatory properties when you apply it topically to the skin. Some studies have shown that Idebenone also boosts levels of other antioxidants in the skin such as Vitamin C and E.

Acetyl hexpeptide-3 (aka Agrieline):

This is another well known and widely used anti aging ingredient not just in Lifecell, but other anti aging creams. This ingredient works by relaxing the muscle below the skin. This is accomplished by blocking a protein which aids in communication between nerve endings. They Agrieline works is very similar to Botox®, except that Botox® destroys the protein which Agireline blocks.

The effects of consistent application of Agireline can reduce visible signs of wrinkles and fine lines thanks to relaxed muscles.

Dithiolane-3-Pentanoic Acid:

We’ll call this mouth full of an ingredient D3PA for short. When you read about the Nobel Price winning science that is included in Lifecell on their official website, this is the ingredient they’re talking about.

D3PA is only found in Lifecell from what I can see, however D3PA appears to be a closely related compound to a well known, used and studied ingredient in other anti wrinkle creams, alpha lipoic acid.

The purpose of D3PA is to bring back a healthy youthful glow to your skin. How does it do that? Well without diving into too much science, D3PA dilates capillaries in your skin which brings more nutrients to the skin. It achieves this by stimulating the production of another compound known as Nitric oxide.

There is evidence of how and why D3PA can stimulate Nitricoxide on the skin and also how and why it can dilate capillaries. While there is not concrete study done in an anti aging skin care scenario, piecing together what is known of this substance suggests that Lifecell made a good choice including this in their formulation.

Fumed silica and Silicon dioxide:

This is one of the most interesting ingredients in Lifecell, and it’s the one that works the quickest. Something I wasn’t aware of until I started diving into all this research is that we don’t actually see wrinkles, what we see are the shadows created on our skin by the wrinkles and lines. These small crystal like particles reflect light away from the wrinkles after you apply the cream to reduce the visible appearance of wrinkles almost instantly (does take a few seconds to absorb into the skin).

While the effects created by these two ingredients wash off each night, they also come back every morning when you apply Lifecell again.
