About Innate Skin Care

Innate Skin Care is a vitamin C anti-aging cream that can help improve collagen production, visibly tighten and soften skin, and create healthy, long-lasting cells. As a result, you’ll restore your soft, smooth, healthy skin and your natural, youthful appearance.

How? Innate Skin Care features a powerful blend of Trylagen, retinol, and vitamin C that create tougher layers of skin that smooth and push back wrinkles. They’re also “designed to create a more efficient polymer change within your skin,” but without injections or surgery!

So, can you really expect Innate Skin Care to work as advertised, or is the company using a bunch of scientific-sounding words to trick you? We’ll break everything down in this review.

First though, what is collagen and what role does it have in aging?

The Link Between Collagen & Aging

Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the human body, primarily within connective tissue and skin. Basically, collagen acts as a support mechanism, and is responsible for providing strength, waterproofing, flexibility, and elasticity.

As we get older and our skin is exposed to excessive UV rays (or through other factors like stress, smoking, not getting enough sleep, and more), less and less collagen is present in our skin, which leads to sagging, a dull appearance, and fine lines and wrinkles.

Clearly, replacing lost collagen is one of the best ways to reduce the signs of aging. But is there anything contained in Innate Skin Care that can help this process?

How Effective Are Innate Skin Care’s Ingredients?

Overall, we’re only told about 3 ingredients contained in Innate Skin Care:

Trylagen is a proprietary ingredient from Lipotec that’s claimed to increase collagen I, II, and IV levels and prevent the main causes of skin damage. The company even claims that Trylagen has been shown to decrease wrinkle depth by 29% in a month, although they don’t provide any clinical evidence to back it up.

The Innate Skin Care website does feature a Lipotec brochure, although again, no clinical evidence is provided.

Retinol is a form of vitamin A that’s approved by the FDA to fight wrinkles. Despite its widespread use though, not all individuals will be able to tolerate retinol, and may experience excessive dryness, irritation, and more.

However, the higher concentration of retinol present the more likely you are to experience side effects, so most formulations contain 0.5% or less (generally, the lowest dose is 0.01%). Unfortunately, we’re not told how much retinol Innate Skin Care contains, whether or not this is enough to provide results, or what kinds of side effects you might reasonably expect.

Finally, vitamin c is a well-known antioxidant that may be able to increase collagen when applied topically, although this only seems to be true when in the ascorbic acid form.

Given all of this, although Innate Skin Care appears to contain a couple ingredients that might provide some anti-aging benefits, the results you’ll experience will likely be mild. Considering this, is it a good value?

Is Innate Skin Care a Bargain Or a Ripoff?

Like most of the other online-only anti-aging creams we’ve reviewed (more about this in a second), Innate Skin Care can only be purchased through a free trial. And in general, we recommend staying away from products sold through free trials. Here’s why:

You might be tempted to place an Innate Skin Care order, since you’ll only have to pay $4.95 S&H, right? But the catch is that, 14 days after placing your order, you’ll be billed the eye-popping price of $96.86!

Pro tip: Don’t feel bad though, because these details are often buried deep within the fine print or Terms & Conditions.

Not only this, you’ll keep receiving a new bottle of Innate once every 30 days, and your card will be charged $96.86 each time.

Not pleased with your order? The manufacturer claims you can call 888-853-3821 or 877-216-6288 to cancel your trial or autoship program, or process a refund within 30 days. But in our opinion, your experience will be anything but pleasant.

Why? Let’s find out.

Customer Feedback For Products Like Innate Skin Care

Even though there weren’t any Innate Skin Care reviews at the time of our research (the product was brand new), the good news is that we’ve reviewed dozens of anti-aging products just like it (see, we told you we’d come back around to this!).

On the other hand, the bad news is that nearly all of them come with bottom-of-the-barrel customer reviews. Whether we’re talking about Encante Cream, SkinYouth Enhanced, NuPlenish Skincare, or many others, the most common complaints center around:

  • They don’t work. In many instances, customers had to visit their doctor to address side effects like redness, swelling, or rashes.
  • High price. As we saw above, Innate Skin Care isn’t exactly cheap. And considering that customers claim they often don’t work, they usually don’t feel these high prices are worth it.
  • Poor customer service. In our experience, poor customer service is the backbone of these enterprises. They probably know they’re charging way too much for an ineffective product, and that customers will soon be requesting refunds. Instead of allowing this to happen, people claim they’re met with rude personnel who constantly talk over you, yell at you, and might even hang up in your ear.

Given everything we’ve discussed here today, is Innate Skin Care an intuitive choice for beauty—and for your wallet?

Is Innate Skin Care a Smart Beauty Choice?

Between not knowing how much of each ingredient Innate Skin Care contains, the fact that it’s only sold through a “free” trial (not to mention its ultra-high price), and that essentially identical products (with websites that make many of the same claims) come with ultra-low reviews, we’d recommend talking with your dermatologist instead of handing over your hard-earned money.

    Innate Scientific Ageless Facial Serum and Moisturizing Cream

    • Moss Point, MS,
    • Nov 8, 2016

    This is a total SCAM. Do not sign up to test their product. I signed up to get paid to take surveys and test products which I would only have to pay shipping, which was minimal $4 for each product. I placed my order and I received notice of what my total order came to, it showed the 2 shipping charges (I could understand 2 shipping charges if they were shipped separately, but they weren't and we are talking about two 1-oz bottles.)

    Then there was a $20 charge added on, with no explanation. I called to cancel my order. That cancelation did not go through as I received my order about 3 days later. I called to complain and I was assured that it was an internal glitch in the system and would only be charged for 2 shipping charges. Since I received my order and there were only the 2 shipping charges on my card, I was ok with that, until now.

    I'm charged with 2 additional charges of $89.99 and $98.95. I called my credit card rep and told them that I did not authorize these charges. He said that a lot of these companies reel you in on their advertising by not telling you that you have a few days trial period and if you do not return the product in the allotted time, then they send you a monthly product and charge full amount on your card each month. You only see that information if you go to their direct website, which was true in this case.

    My card has now been canceled so that they cannot make any more charges against my card and the charges they made will now be disputed by my credit card company.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Do not buy, rip off.

    • Northern Virginia,
    • Nov 2, 2016

    I, too, fell for their trial purchase and then noticed the additional charges of $89.99 and $ 98.95 18 days later on my credit card. When you call their phone numbers, do not press 3 for other options as you will be disconnected.

    Press the number for sales and you will reach a person. I was not able to get a full refund of $89.99 and $98.95 because it was day 31 when I realized this scam, but I was told I will get a partial refund.

    They offered me to send the product back but would charge a $20 processing fee and I said no.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Money taken from my account but no product shipped. This is nothing but a scam.

    My checking account was hit with a charge of $89.99. No product was sent to me. If you try their free offer it does not tell you that you will be charged $89.99 every month if you don't cancel within 30 days. Once I did finally get through to this company to cancel I was told that everything had been cancelled. I called them the first week that I had my free trial. They took unauthorized funds out of my checking account leaving me with 5 dollars for the rest of the month.

    I have reported them to my bank as a fraudulent charge. I have had to have my card cancelled, now I have to wait to see how long it will take to get the money back into my checking account. Don't do business with this company. They will cost you a lot of time and trouble having to get your money back and wait for new credit cards to arrive.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Rip off

    I saw that Dr. Oz and Oprah spoke highly of this product. I went through the entire experience but the product turned out to be a scam. I received my order one day before my Free Trial. So there was NO Free trial. When I called to cancel I was told that is be charged $89.95. I replied, “You're not charging me a dime.” I grilled the lady on the phone. She said that there would be no extra charges if I canceled before the end of the trial. I got very aggressive and told the sales rep that my bank would refund me completely, they they did and they also investigated this company. In short, it is a huge SCAM. Don't even think about ordering. You'll be taken advantage of unless you're like me. I'll take no crap!

    I was only charged shipping and they Instantly canceled my order. If you seem weak, they will prey on you. Stay clear. Don't believe Dr. Oz or Oprah because it's all bull! I won. Don't let this happen to you. Read my post if you've ordered, and stand your ground no matter what. They'll give in because they know this is a huge scam.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
