We are going to analyze the ingredients of the best-selling eye contour on Amazon, a brand that is not well known, but that has very good opinions from users who have tried it.
As I always tell you, analyzing each of the ingredients is the only way to know if a cosmetic is worth it or not. And that is why we have analyzed all the ingredients of the most popular brands in the article Best Eye Contours , I recommend that you do not miss it! So let’s get down to business.
INCI Analysis Triple Action Eye Contour Nutreplus
- Caprylic / capric Triglyceride : Tested in ClarinsMen anti-wrinkle cream as Caprylic / capric glycerides.
- Butylene glycol : Analyzed in ClarinsMen’s anti-wrinkle cream .
- Argania spinosa kernel oil : Derived from the seeds of the argan tree, argan oil is a hydrating oil composed of essential fatty acids, among which are linoleic acid and omega oleic acid, and tocopherol (vitamin E), a powerful antioxidant. These components serve as emollients, attracting and retaining moisture in the skin, and have powerful anti-inflammatory properties.
- Glycerin : Tested in ClarinsMen’s anti-wrinkle cream .
- Polyglyceryl 3- methylglucose distearate : It is a plant-based emulsifier and emollient. It is considered a glycerin ester, an ingredient composed of fat and oil that can be altered (to liquid or solid) depending on the temperature. It combines stearic acid (a potential irritant) with the condensation product of methylglucose and polyglycerin-3. It is also used as a sunscreen ingredient due to its ability to provide water resistance when serving as a lipid-based surfactant. However, it has a low resistance rate of around 50% – 65%. The inclusion of stearic acid can cause irritation, although its other lipid components can diminish this effect.
- Butyrospermun parkii butter extract : Analyzed in the Nezeni Cosmetics Intensive Antiage eye contour .
- Glyceryl stearate : Analyzed in the Fiori di Cipria anti-wrinkle cream .
- Stearic acid : Analyzed in the Fiori di Cipria anti-wrinkle cream .
- Palmitic acid : Analyzed in ClarinsMen’s anti-wrinkle cream .
- Phenoxyethanol : Analyzed in ClarinsMen’s anti-wrinkle cream .
- Acetyl Tetrapeptide-5 : Also called Eyeseryl. It is a well-known moisturizer that helps reduce eye puffiness, improve skin elasticity, as well as overall smoothness. This is done by attracting water from the deepest layers of the skin, towards the outermost layer (stratum corneum), taking advantage of the hydroscopic properties of this compound. It is also used to successfully treat xerosis (abnormally dry skin). Humectants can also play an important role as emulsifiers within a general formulation. Some humectants can be irritating in extremely high concentrations, but acetyl-tetrapeptide-5 is not dangerous to the body or the environment.
- Dimethylmethoxy chromanol : Also called Lipochroman-6, it is a synthetic analog of vitamin E. It is a high-potency antioxidant that is believed to inhibit tyrosinase activity and the formation of peroxynitrites (one of the main culprits in the peroxidation of lipids and cell damage), two responsible for skin aging. It works by capturing oxygen and nitrogen molecules from free radicals in the body. It is a synthetic analog of gamma-tocopherol, but it has been shown to have more than 20 times its antioxidant activity. Therefore, it can be used in very low concentrations.
- Tocopheryl acetate : Analyzed in ClarinsMen’s wrinkle cream as Tocopherol Acetate.
- Disodium EDTA : Analyzed in ClarinsMen’s anti-wrinkle cream .
- Perfume .
- Ethylhexylglycerin : Analyzed in Nezeni antiage cream .
- BHT : Tested in Shiseido Men’s Anti-Wrinkle Cream .
Summary Analysis Contour of Nutreplus
This is a fairly good cream, with few ingredients and several active ingredients, although the proportions of some of them are not as high as you would like.
It has a high proportion of argan oil , and shea butter; and it also has Eyeseryl and Lipochroman-6, antioxidant ingredients that improve skin elasticity. In addition, it does not have parabens or dyes, the perfume does not include allergenic aromas, it is not tested on animals, and the brand says that the ingredients are natural and organic.
I don’t really like that it has Phenoxyethanol, a preservative that can be dangerous; nor BHT, a somewhat controversial ingredient.
Although it is a contour that is quite good, now I am using another contour that has more effective ingredients, of higher quality, and with active ingredients in greater proportions. It is about Nezeni Cosmetics Intensive Antiage Eye Contour, and in the Best Eye Contours article I analyze all its ingredients and why it is the one I like the most.
