Yalmeh Aloe Super Youth Eye Cream – Look at the label

This Yalmeh eye cream is one of the top selling beauty products on Amazon this week. I would love to look at the label and tell you all about the ingredients but I can’t find a complete ingredient list ANYWHERE on the web.

This is one of my pet peeves – companies that don’t disclose the ingredients in their products. Or rather, companies that only tell you about the ingredients that they WANT you to know about.

According to every website I found here’s the scoop on what makes this product tick:

“The ingredients in this product are primarily plant based. They contain organic and natural oils and extracts along with plant based ingredients used as binders, stabilizers, thickeners and natural preservatives.Our customers see results normally after three months of daily use both morning and evening. Results include reduction of fine lines around the eyes. People also use it around the mouth, forehead and cheek area and have seen similar results in those areas. The main ingredients are Organic Aloe Vera, Organic Green Tea, Organic Glycyrrhiza Glabra ,Organic Euphrasia Officinalis (Eyebright), Organic Mahonia Aquifolium (Oregon Grape), Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba Oil), Organic Rosa Canina (Rosehip Seed Oil) and Vitamins E and C with many other great moisturizers.”

So we know that the ingredients are “primarily” plant based and we know what the “main” ingredients are. However the plant ingredients which they list above are not capable of moisturizing skin by themselves nor are they able to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

My question is what ELSE is in this product that really makes it work and why is the company reluctant to share that information with us? Is it because the other ingredients don’t appear so “natural?” At any rate, I certainly don’t recommend buying any product that is so coy with such important product information.

So, I recommend that you click our link to Yalmeh Eye Creamand go to Amazon and buy ANY OTHER PRODUCT. You’ll be helping to support the Beauty Brains and maybe, just maybe, the company will get the message and start to share more product information.

      @Jacklin: Thanks for taking the time to provide the ingredients in your product. I do have a follow up question about the ingredient list, if that’s okay with you.

      Does your product contain water? I don’t see it listed yet water is typically the first ingredient in products like this because it is used as the diluent for the herbal extracts as well as the solvent for water soluble ingredients (in this case, glycol acid lactic acid, for example.)

      By the way, in case you’re not aware, I’d like to point out that you’re not consistently following the proper ingredient naming conventions as established in the International Cosmetic Ingredient Dictionary & Handbook which is used for the US, Europe, and other countries.

      Thank you.

      Is the product vegan? (Tested on animals at all? Are any of the ingredients derived or processed using animals?)
