About Kra'sa Anti-Aging

By HighYa Research Team
Published on: Dec 23, 2017

Claiming to help you join the “ageless skin revolution,” Kra’sa Anti-Aging Cream promises visibly younger-looking skin, stating that its clinically-proven ingredient matrix can boost hydration, restore elasticity, and eliminate wrinkles and fine lines.

The website elaborates on the formula used in the product, stating that they target and treat the core aging mechanisms in the skin around your face, radically rebuilding, revitalizing, and rejuvenating damaged areas in the process.

Kra’sa is positioned as an alternative to injections such as Botox, as well as to other, more involved surgical procedures, with the makers claiming that it works on a cellular level to decongest the dermal matrix and reinforce its natural structure. They claim this rebuilds the skin’s collagen network, delivering hydration and nourishment while smoothing out its appearance.

These claims will be attractive to many, to be sure, but is this really what you can expect from using Kra’sa yourself? In order to answer this question, we’ll have to take a closer look at the ingredients used in its formula, but before that, let’s briefly explore what collagen is, and why it’s so crucial to the skin’s natural appearance.

Collagen: The Body’s Link to Youth

Collagen is a basic building block in the skin, making up about 75 percent of its mass, according to WebMD. They also say that it acts a natural barrier of sorts, keeping out harmful impurities and fighting against the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.

As we grow and age, we gradually lose the ability to replenish our own collagen stores, which explains why our older years are often associated with many of the things Kra’sa claims to be able to help with, like fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging. But can it really improve the appearance of your skin if you’re dealing with these blemishes?

Interestingly, based on our past experience reporting on anti-aging products, we’ve learned that collagen as a molecule is too large to pass directly into the skin’s structure when applied topically. A 1988 clinical study further ingrains this point, finding that even if a topical solution could deliver collagen molecules, whether in whole or fragmented form, there is insufficient evidence that they’d be able to form new fibers, or strengthen existing ones, as the makers of Kra’sa claim.

What does this mean for you? In the next section, we’ll need to take a closer look at the ingredients used in the serum’s formula to determine how effective it might be at delivering on these claims.

Kra’sa Formula Ingredients & Potential Side Effects

On the website, four main ingredients are listed as being used in the Kra’sa formula:

  • Phytoceramide
  • Retinol
  • Acmella Flower Extract
  • Black Currant Seed Extract

We reached out to customer support to ask if there were any additional ingredients, and they let us know that the formula also included cocoa seed butter, pyrus malus extract, and tomato fruit extract as well. When we asked multiple agents about the concentration amounts of each of these seven ingredients, none of them were able to provide a list or breakdown of how much of each is included.

Without this, it can be very difficult to gauge just how effective you can expect these ingredients to be. Why? To answer that, we’ll need to see what authoritative sources such as WebMD, Truth in Aging, and Examine.com have to say about these ingredients and their potential effects.

Based on information taken from the sources listed above, we found that two of the ingredients, phytoceramides and retinol, do show some evidence for supporting skin health. A French study found that topically-applied ceramides were able to improve the skin’s barrier that we mentioned above, and WebMD lists that retinoid substances hamper the breakdown of collagen and thicken the layer of skin where wrinkles form.

That said, they go on to mention that prescription retinoid products are often up to “100 times” as potent as over-the-counter products like Kra’sa. This is due to lower concentration amounts, and without this information from the manufacturer, it’s all but impossible to say if you’ll experience these benefits or not.

During our research, we didn’t encounter any serious adverse side effects associated with any of the seven ingredients listed above when topically applied.

That said, topically applied retinol is listed by WebMD as featuring some minor adverse effects, such as burning, warmth, stinging, tingling, itching, redness, swelling, dryness, peeling, irritation, and discoloration of the skin. Rarer side effects include hives, swelling, and breathing difficulty. No threshold dosage was listed at which these effects become more common.

Kra’sa Pricing & Return Policy

As of this writing, Kra’sa Anti-Aging Cream was available exclusively from the manufacturer’s website as part of a free trial. This means that when you attempt to checkout, you’ll only be presented with an initial shipping fee of $3.95 to get a month’s supply of the serum. Despite this, the terms listed in the terms and conditions state that this begins your 14-day trial period. Once this window is up, you’ll be automatically charged the full retail price of $103.93 and enrolled in the company’s autoship program.

This means that you’ll continue to be billed this amount (plus $6.93 for shipping) each and every month until you contact customer service at customerservice@krasa-skin.com or by phone at 855-746-0306 to cancel. You can also do this any time before the 14-day window closes to avoid being charged in the first place.

As for the return policy, the terms state that only unopened orders received within the last 14 days can be returned for a refund. No opened products will be given partial refunds, and to initiate the process, you’ll need to contact support using the information above and request an RMA number. You’ll be required to pay a 20% restocking fee, as well as any shipping fees needed to get the product back to the manufacturer.

Purchasing an Anti-Aging Solution Similar to Kra’sa

As we mentioned earlier on, here at HighYa we have years of experience reporting on hundreds of different anti-aging serums, and during our time researching their claims, we’ve come up with a framework for determining which of them, if any, are worth your time and hard-earned money. In fact, we’ve seen claims similar to the ones made with Kra’sa many times, in many different products. Why is this?

Simply put, the FDA doesn’t regulate supplemental and cosmetic health products the same way they do food and prescription drugs. They don’t require manufacturers to provide proof for any claims made about their products, and based on our previous experience, we’ve found that following this simple three-step approach can help you make a more informed purchasing decision online when looking for an ideal anti-aging solution.

1. Learn to evaluate a product from a distance. It’s all-too-easy to make a hasty purchase based on emotions and a gut-feeling, but if you’re able to resist this, you’ll be in a much better position to safely evaluate how effective you can expect a particular product to be for you.

2. Avoid free trials and autoship programs whenever possible. Our readers have told us that they experience numerous frustrations with these pricing setups, from difficulty canceling them to not even knowing they exist before the charges start rolling in.

3. Know all the details, and keep your expectations in check. Regardless of how confident you are in a given product, keep in mind that we are all different, and your skin may react differently to a solution like Kra’sa than others. It’s important to keep expectations in check and understand the return policy fully before entering in your credit card info.

The Bottom Line: Our Thoughts on Kra’sa Anti-Aging Cream

At the end of the day, can you really expect Kra’sa to deliver on their promises of helping you achieve visibly younger-looking skin with its topical formula?

On the one hand, we found that two ingredients used in its formula, phytoceramides and retinol, have been shown by sources such as WebMD and Truth in Aging to be potentially effective for protecting the skin’s natural barriers and hamper collagen breakdown. Despite that, without concentration information, and without testing it ourselves, we can’t say that this is what you’ll experience using the serum in practice.

When coupled with the autoship pricing structure and restrictive return policy, as consumers ourselves, we feel that a better first step might be to schedule a consultation with your doctor to discuss the issues you are facing directly. This way, you’ll be more likely to be paired with a solution that works well for you and is safe for use over the long-term.

    Fraud

    • Texas,
    • Oct 3, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    Beware, this company is fraudulent and their free offer is a scam. Nowhere in their advertisement did it say 14-day trial. All it said was free trial, just pay shipping. After 14 days they will bill you an enormous amount of money! The product SUCKS! I had to cancel my credit card to prevent them from ripping me off every month as they will not cancel without a fight. They have a middle-east accent and it’s very hard to understand their BS. Zero luck in getting a refund for their fraudulent charges. Do not do business with these scam freaks. They should be put out of business and thrown in jail!

    Do NOT order from this company

    • Elizabethtown, PA,
    • Sep 10, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I ordered the "free trial" of anti-aging cream and serum and paid the shipping only of $3.95 and $5.95. After receiving the serum and cream and reading the fine print, I realized that I would automatically be charged $109.00 a month to receive the cream and serum, so I immediately called within the grace period and canceled the order. Then, when I received my bank statement, I noticed the $109.00 charge from the Kra'sa Company, so I called to inquire. I was informed by the customer rep that I had only canceled the cream, not the serum, so they were still charging me the full price. When I canceled earlier, I had to pay $19.99 just to get out of the contract. The company would not refund my $109.00 and I recommend that unless you have lots of money to spend, stay away from this company. I believe they are fraudulent! I have a bad taste for the cream and serum, as well.

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

    Beware - false advertising!

    • Palm Harbor, FL,

    Ordered from Facebook what was supposed to be a "free trial", pay only shipping and handling. Ad did not state that it was a "14-day free trial" nor was there any paperwork received with the product indicating this. Two charges, one for $109 and the other for $103 just appeared on my card today. Based on the reviews which I’ve read, it will probably get me nowhere, but I am going to dispute the charges. PLEASE do not order ANYTHING from this company! Their ad is false advertising at its best and a total rip-off!

    Total scam, zero stars

    • Florida,
    • Aug 8, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    Was redirected to an ordering website with none of the "fine print". Had I known the 14-day trial began as soon you order, I would have never ordered as my wife was out of town for 3 weeks. Got nailed with the $109 charge and after loudly complaining, they refunded half. BFD, still a rip-off. Offered to start trial period when wife returned, no luck. Offered to send back unopened, no luck. If the product was any good, they would not have to steal from the general public. STAY AWAY.

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

    Warning! Scam scam scam! And they have the worst customer service EVER!

    • Rising Sun, IN,
    • May 20, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    Don’t buy it! Don’t waste your time and money! I bought into this scam. I bought it on a "trial" basis. I missed the deadline to send it back and forgot about it. I get a collections letter, which is fine, I’m the one that forgot about it. However, I called to try and make it right, all to be put on hold FOREVER! Then once you finally get through they say you can pay half and give this BS story that they can’t take my money yet that someone will call me back in 24 to 48 hours...guess what, no call. So I call back after the 48 hours and the exact same thing happened. And mind you, none of them can speak clear English so that’s adding to the fuel of the fire because you can’t understand what they’re saying.

    So after the third time of 24 to 48 hours, I asked to speak to a manager because they kept telling me I can pay but no one would take my damn money. After throwing a fit they finally sent me their accounts receivables and they wanted me to make two transactions because I got two different products. Okay fine, I entered all my info, then the guy got back on the line and said okay, now we’re ready for the second transaction, I entered my info again. He gave me a confirmation number and I told him I wanted an email confirmation and guess what, he said you’ll receive an email in 24 to 48 hours. I NEVER GOT MY EMAIL.

    Fast forward a week, something told me to call and check on it and now they’re saying only one transaction went through.

    Bank automatically informed me of fraud, so I canceled the purchase before it went through. They sent the cream anyway. It's been about 3 months. Now they are trying to get the $103 for the product I didn't even follow through with ordering. They have sent my name to Armadillo Collections Agency, Pinnacle Law Group! They are probably in cahoots with this scam. Not going to happen!

    Bad experience with Kra'sa

    • Indiana,
    • Mar 27, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I bought this product, Kra'sa Anti-Aging cream thinking that this product could be used on any type of skin tones. It was an advertisement showing women of color and darker skin tones. I'm African American, I used the product, and within three days my face became extremely irritated and discolored. I contacted the company to find out what ingredients they used. I could not get a proper answer, only that all ingredients were natural. I'm still suffering. I called my bank and they put a stop payment on the company. I was also told that they are a fraudulent company. Please, please do not buy this product.

    Make sure you read the fine print on the website. The trial period is 2 weeks. On the 15th day, they have your money for good. You have no rights.

    I tried the products and did not like the results. In dealing with the company, I only could get some of my money back. Certainly not anything I was happy with.

    Bad customer experience

    • Illinois,

    • Verified Reviewer

    I order some product and didn’t even had time to try it. I call to cancel and the reps are so pushy, they wanted to extend the tryout. I call to cancel and they never explain I had a certain time to send it back. Well, we had some bad snow storms in Illinois and it was hard for me to get out, well, they took over $200 from my account. I called and they said I needed to provide a tracking number. I call back with the tracking number and they tell me well, it is over the 30 days, we cannot issue a credit back...I’m like, I sent you the product back and you are going to keep my money also? A product I didn’t even try I had a bad experience with. They push you so much to keep the product when you call, and when you call, they don’t explain. The worst experience ever. So, they have the product and my money.

    Company is a fraud

    • Georgia,

    • Verified Reviewer

    I have read all these reviews about this company and they are a total rip-off. I have been to my bank and they have put stop payments on it. I am returning their unopened product and these charges better be returned to my bank account. They are a bunch of foreign people you can't understand, and there will be a suit filed if they don't return the money to my account. They overdrew my account and I am furious. So and saying all this, I better have those charges reversed ASAP or a big claim is going into the BBB and they will post their site as a scam. They put no paper insert in their product so there's no phone number. Oh, they are trying to be as sneaky as possible and they aren't going to get away with it. It just makes me furious thinking what crooks they are.
