Tensage by Biopelle skincare is one of the most unique anti-aging products advicesisters.com has reviewed in ages Here’s why:
Can You Really Turn Back the Hands Of Time With a Tiny Snail?
We’ve seen a lot of skincare products that include unusual ingredients, but Biopelle’s Tensage formula includes a natural ingredient extracted from the eggs of the cryptomphalus aspersa snail.
This tiny little creature is no escargot (it is a farmed snail but you wouldn’t want to eat it).
From this snail’s eggs is created a proprietary “CellPro Technology” that helps your skin do a very beautiful and remarkable thing. It assists your body’s stem cells in creating new, healthy skin cells. It doesn’t just make your skin look better, your own skin actually becomes better!
While most skincare products might help your skin to look better on the outside, Tesage actually assists your body’s stem cells in creating new, healthy skin cells. It doesn’t just make your skin look better, your own skin actually becomes better!
In other words, thanks to the ingredient extrated from this little snail’s eggs, Tensage doesn’t just make your skin look better, it actually help your own skin actually become better!
What are Stem Cells (the very basic version):
Stem cells are undifferentiated biological cells that can differentiate into specialized cells and can divide to produce more stem cells. They are found in all multicellular organisms.
In mammals (that’s us, of course), there are two broad types of stem cells (this is important)!
n a developing embryo, stem cells can differentiate into all the specialized cells but also maintain the normal turnover of regenerative organs, such as blood, skin, or intestinal tissues.
Today, stem cells can now be artificially grown and transformed (differentiated) into specialized cell types with characteristics consistent with cells of various tissues such as muscles or nerves.
Why the Cryptomphalus Aspersa Snail Helps Our Skin Today:
Millions of years ago, during a period when our planet was bombarded by extreme radiation, the cryptomphalus aspersa snail developed a self-preserving secretion of growth factors and glycoproteins that covered its skin.
This might not sound glamorous, but the special fluid helped the snail heal damage from the sun’s rays.
Now that growth factor has been developed to help heal damaged human skin as well through Tensage®SCA Technology (which stands for Secretion of CryptomphalusAspersa, a type of snail).
Let’s get to the products! We were given samples of Tensage Stem Cell Eye Cream ($130.00 0.5 fl. oz.) and Tensage Stem Cell Cream $180.00 1 fl. oz.).
As you might expect from new, novel, skincare products, the Tensage Stem Cell Cream is elegantly and impressively packaged in ahard-sidedd round silver column container. Inside there is an oxygen-free pump in matte silver with a gold rim. The product has a slight floral scent and absorbs quickly without residue.
The paraben-free and very rich cream may be powerful, but it can be used by all skin types on the face, neck & décolleté. and there’s more than just the snail egg extract. It also features peptides, ceramide NP, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, antioxidants, soothing botanical extracts and retinol.
There is more than just that snail egg extract in the ingredients. It also features peptides, ceramide NP, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, antioxidants, soothing botanical extracts and retinol. All of these are proven powerhouses for good anti-aging results.
TIP: Ideally this paraben-free product should be used at night. Biopelle says if you use this during the day be sure to apply a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher (you should always wear SPF every day, anyway).
Tensage Stem Cell Eye Cream
The Tensage Stem Cell Eye Cream has the same rich nourishing formula but crafted for the delicate eye area with additional retinol, peptides, caffeine, sodium hyaluronate, antioxidants, humectants and brightening agents to deal with tired, puffy eyes.
We aren’t a fan of most eye creams but this one gave our sensitive eyes no issues at all. It was pleasant to use, and when something is pleasant, you are much more likely to use it regularly. Two thumbs up.
Will Tensage Be Your New Fountain of Youth Elixer?
We would really like to say cautiously “yes it might be.”
After years of testing all sorts of skincare products we can say that a lot of this makes sense as a powerful anti-aging regimen. It appears to have many good ingredients that can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, help skin to look more hydrated, firmer and smoother, and likely improve skin damaged by photo-aging.
When you look at the science behind this, and the ingredients contained inside, it has everything to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, help skin to look more hydrated, firmer and smoother, and likely improve skin damaged by photo-aging.
It was even suggested at the launch that Tensage might help speed the recovery of skin after dermal procedures. This makes sense too, although we can’t test this.
Tensage is a personalized regimen that is dispensed by a qualified doctor. Each person would be evaluated and receive different strengths depending upon what is determined is best for you. And even with one strength.
We can’t insist with certainty how well Tensage will work on your skin, or how quickly, or to what degree.
The Bottom Line:
Tensage is new and novel and it’s pricey. We liked it at lot. We really did. We think that these products have a lot of potential.
We think the best way to try them is to first discuss them with your doctor or dermatologist. In fact, these are the people who will be dispensing Tensage to patients.
