If you are reading the I assume you have watched my Skincare Analysis video on Sublimage!
If you haven’t, watch the video below and this post will make a lot more sense.
Sublimage Essential Regenerating Cream doesn’t contain any known carcinogens, other products in the line do, and the regenerating cream does contain harmful endocrine system disruptors.
- My main issue with the moisturiser is that Chanel has a whole heap of claims about this product that it simply cannot back up.
- The JAR PACKAGING makes the ‘Active’ Ingredients redundant/void and pointless.
- Chanel is trying to rely on selling you the story of the moisturiser as opposed to the benefits of the moisturiser.
- The product IS tested on animals
- The ingredients in this product (anti oxidants and Vanilla) are AIR SENSITIVE and are USELESS once you open it.
- Chanel have essentially MADE UP ‘Polyfractioning’ as their fractionation method, (the word is not found in any dictionary or scientific research) but they are essentially isolating the active ingredients and pairing down the molecules to a handful – which is not in any way new or unique.
- Ironically, the product contains barely ANY Vanilla Oil, which WOULD be highly moisturising for the skin
- It contains fragrance.
- Most of the ingredients are ingredients which will make the skin FEEL and LOOK softer and smoother but unfortunately thats about all you are paying €310 for.
Here are the Ingredients:
Aqua (water), Squalane, Simmondsia Chinesis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Octyldodecanol, Glycerin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetearyl Alcohol, Butylene Glycol, C13-16 Isoparaffin, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Phytosteryl Canola Glycerides, Beheneth -25, Dimethicone, Canola Oil, Camellia Kissi Seed Oil, Jojoba Esters, Ammonium Acryloydimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Pentylene Glycol, Cetearyl Glucoside, Phenoxyethanol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Urea, Glucosamine HCL, Methylparaben, Parfum (Fragrance), Propylparaben, Benzophenone-3, Centella Asiatica Extract, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Oil, Xanthan Gum, Algae Extract, Faex (Yeast Extract), Propylene Glycol, Tetrasodium EDTA, Citric Acid, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Cl 15985, (Yellow 6), Cl 19140 (Yellow 5), Cl 14700 (Red 4).
The BOLDED ingredients above are parabens and preservatives. They affect immunotoxicity and are endocrine disruptors as well as cause many people to have allergies. The endocrine system regulates many of the body’s functions, including growth, development and maturation, as well as the way various organs operate. Parabens are deemed agents that mimic estrogen consequently they may factor in on issues relating to early pubescent development in girls (around 10 years old now versus 13 years old years ago), breast cancer and reproductive issues.
I’ve also bolded and italicized ‘Fragrance’. The major concern with fragrance is that the law does not require companies to disclose exactly what ingredients make up a ‘fragrance’ as it’s considered a trade secret. Up to 3,000 fragrant ingredients could be included in skin and personal care products to add scent or to mask odors caused by other chemicals in the formula. As a result, many ingredients are lumped under the word ‘fragrance’ and may be harmful and worse, are omitted from the label. I personally stay away from fragrance at all costs.
Considering Vanilla Planifolia is the *Star Ingredient that Chanel push heavily in the advertising of this product, It is listed Verrrrrryyy far down the list of Ingredients. The ingredients are listed in order of how much of that ingredient is IN the product. so for example: There is more water then any other ingredient in this product.
The product is listed with a shelf life of 18 months
