Mixed result for face creams

Half of all creams tested received a "very good" or "good" judgment. All thirteen "very good" products with natural cosmetics. The results of the study for the advertised age-reduction effects were not sufficient for any of the 22 tested anti-aging products from the point of view of Öko-Test.

"Very good"

Test winners include creams of different price ranges: Alverde "daily organic wild rose" by dm cut off the best. 50 ml costs 2.95 euros. The fragrances geraniol and ctronellol and the outer packaging, which would not protect the glass and were therefore redundant, were criticized. Annemarie Börlind's "Energynature Vitalizing Day Cream" was also rated "very good" with a price of 23.90 for 50 ml and Dr. Med's "Day Day Cream". Hauschka for € 36.50 for 50 ml. Cream reviews Dr. Med. Hauschka were perfumes – the product contains citronellol, geraniol, citral, farnesol and eugenol. Available at pharmacies, health food stores and drug stores, Weleda's "Iris Refreshing Day Cream" contains four different scents and one redundant Oeko-Test outer box. The product is priced at € 19.92 per 50ml and one of the test winners is Martina Gebhardt certified, “Demeter Cream” by Martina Gebhardt, available at health food stores. Price is € 23.99 for 50 ml.


Sebamed's "anti-aging body cream" landed in the middle of the field. 50 ml costs 6.65 euros. Sebapharm does not produce certified natural cosmetics, but the ingredients could be rated "very good" for themselves. The overall rating of 'satisfactory' is the result of further packaging deficiencies. The "Aqualia Thermal Moisturizer" from Vichy contains fragrances and plastic compounds – the overall rating is "satisfactory". 50 ml costs 19,90 euros.

"Does not satisfy"

"Cell Activating Day Cream" by Judith Williams (€ 8.95 per 50 ml), "L & # 39; Oréal Daily Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream" ($ 3.95 per 50 ml) and The Youth Drops Cream by The Body Shop (23 Euros per 50 ml) All creams are not certified natural cosmetics, they also contain fragrances with allergic potential Body Shop Cream also contains PEG compounds, paraffins and silicones.
