Some consumers have questioned bold claims made by Jergens “Skin Firming” lotion. Is this yet another “anti-cellulite” cream? Respected dermatologists have firmly rejected the notion that any such product can produce the results promised, and consistently indicated that as a matter of accurate science and physiology, cellulite cannot be successfully combated by any skin cream.
Jergens Skin Firming Lotion, sold at national retailers such as CVS, makes a number of questionable claims, including but not limited to:
- “Reduces appearance of cellulite for visibly firmer skin.”
- “Helps you achieve deeply luminous, visibly firmer skin.”
- “Tightens and increases elasticity of cellulite prone skin for visibly firmer results.”
Jergens claims that the magic ingredients giving this otherwise ordinary lotion the ability to fight cellulite are its unique “Hydralucence blend,” collagen, and elastin. “Hydralucence” is a scientific-sounding word, but does it have any real meaning?
One thing is for sure – consumers who buy lotions claiming to have special properties that defy the boundaries of reality and science – i.e. “anti-aging” and “anti-cellulite” creams – spend lots of money, but may be extremely disappointed when they compare the benefits promised to the results obtained.
