My Stemuderm Review (2022) – Is It A Scam?

It’s time for my Stemuderm review – an anti-aging cream that looks very promising.

But are there any chances that this product is a scam?:

  • super expensive
  • complex ingredients
  • small quantity

And what’s the deal behind this cream?

I tried to dig deep into details to give you the truth about this product.

Note: This review is based on my opinion + research on Stemuderm.

Review Summary

Full Name: Stemuderm Anti-Wrinkle Treatment by Solvaderm

Product Type: Anti-Aging Cream

Best Actual Prize: Around $80

Cheapest Place To Buy: The Official Website

Designed For: Improving the skin– it claims to:

  • give younger-looking skin
  • hydrate skin
  • reduce signs of aging

My Rating: 7 out of 10

Recommended?: Not really. It's a decent product, but it has some disadvantages:

  • lacks strong anti-aging components
  • high price tag
  • may cause skin irritations

I personally recommend a way better anti-aging cream instead.

 

What I Liked About It

  • Based on some major skin care ingredients
  • Contains several herbal extracts
  • Made by a trusted brand
 
What I Didn’t Like About It

  • Too pricey
  • Small quantity for targeted areas
  • Can cause an allergic reaction
  • Lacks other strong anti-aging ingredients

 

 


Stemuderm In A Nutshell


Stemuderm Anti-Wrinkle Treatment is a good product made to reduce signs of aging.

But in my own opinion, it’s not the very best.

It has limited positive reviews from people who tried it.

And it also comes from a credible company that sells skin care products.

Even if you consider these advantages, there are still some things that will make you think twice:

  • not that strong for anti-aging
  • works more as a moisturizer
  • expensive for its value
  • needs repurchasing more than once a month
  • comes in small quantity

This product is being presented in an inviting way (given that it comes from a trusted brand).

However – the amount of product is only 50 ml and it costs around $80.

Plus – it's advised to be applied to the face, neck and upper chest area.

Since it lacks strong anti-aging ingredients, it will take a long time for you to see the effects.

And given its quantity – you might need to buy more than once a month.

So even though this product is not bad, there are better alternatives out there.

 

 


#1 – Claims & Producer


First of all, here's what you should know about this product:

  • what skin issues it helps
  • how it works
  • who is the company behind
1. Claims

This product states to be a “concentrated treatment that addresses multiple signs of skin aging.”

It also says that it's specifically designed to target all types of skin damage.

Here's what it's supposed to mean:

  • reduces wrinkle depth, fine lines and crow's feet
  • boosts collagen and elastin
  • optimizes hydration
  • protects against further damage
  • delays skin aging

Plus – it also claims that this drastically reduces the visible signs of aging.

I personally don't believe in statements saying that a product can work quickly.

That's because it takes months to visibly see changes (in most cases).

So if a product could work so fast – it would be way more popular and used by everyone.

Makes sense, right?

2. Company Behind

The company behind this cream is Solvaderm USA:

  • known for its skin care products
  • most of them are designed for face and body
  • it has an official website

Based on the products and the whole interface of the brand itself, it looks legit.

And I noticed that the prices of its products lean more on the high-end side.

Still, overall – I would say that it's safe to buy from this brand.

 

 


#2 – Formula (8 out of 10)


The ingredients present in this cream look really promising.

Regarding the formula itself:

  • contains different types of peptides
  • incorporates fruit cell culture and plant extracts
  • is based on popular skin care ingredients

Let’s take a closer look at its major compositions – starting from the top ingredient.

1. Peptides

Here are the forms of peptides present in this cream:

  • Acetyl Hexapeptide-8
  • Dipeptide Diaminobutyroyl Benzylamide Diacetate (SYN-AKE™)
  • Acetyl Glutamyl Heptapeptide-1
  • Palmitoyl Oligopeptide
  • Pentapeptide-3 & Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 (Matrixyl 3000)

In general, peptides are amino acids that form proteins needed by the skin.

These proteins are collagen and elastin fibers.

The benefits of this class of ingredients include:

  • improves skin barrier
  • boosts collagen production [1]
  • hydrates skin

Basically – adding this component can improve the skin firmness and elasticity overall.

2. Malus Domestica Fruit Cell Culture

According to its official website – here's what this ingredient does:

  • protects cells [2]
  • reserves skin's youthful appearance
  • gives the cream its restorative, long-lasting and rejuvenating effect

This component is derived from an extremely rare apple found in Switzerland.

Other than providing antioxidants, its major role is to improve skin cells overall.

3. Additional Ingredients

These are some of the extra ingredients incorporated in this cream:

  • Squalene – has anti-inflammatory properties and plums skin [3]
  • Hyaluronic Acid – retains moisture and keeps skin hydrated
  • Jojoba Seed Oil & Apricot Kernel Oil – firms and clarifies skin

Adding herbal/plant extracts is quite common for almost all skin care products.

So it's somehow a basic requirement for any cream, serum or mist.


Conclusion

Stemuderm Anti-Wrinkle Treatment has a good formula overall:

  • based on different forms of peptides
  • contains plant/herbal extracts and common skin care ingredients

But honestly – it needs to have strong anti-aging ingredients…

At least if it wants to live by its claims of being a concentrated serum that can give drastic changes.

For now, it looks more like a moisturizer (in my view).

Overall – if you're looking for a strong anti-aging cream, switch to a better alternative instead.

 

 


#3 – Consistency & Dosage (8 out of 10)


Here are some facts about this product's texture.

1. Consistency

In terms of texture, Stemuderm can be described as:

  • slightly thick and whipped 
  • light chemical scent
  • white cream

The whipped texture might be due to the pressure from the pump.

But it still looks a little thick – which can take some time to be absorbed by the skin.

Also, you need more than 1 pump if you want to to apply it to your face, neck and upper chest area.

2. Dosage

Here’s how you should use this cream – according to its instructions:

  1. Cleanse and tone your face first.
  2. Pump a small amount of the product into your fingertips.
  3. Massage the product t your face, neck and upper chest in a circular motion
  4. Focus on areas that have visible signs of aging.
  5. Apply daily during the morning and before bed.

It is advised to start using it every other day first.

When your skin gets used to it, you can then use it twice daily.

The recommended way of application is to massage in a circular motion.

 

 


#4 – Results (8 out of 10)


To see how this cream works, look for the reviews given by the customers who tried it.

That's exactly what I did – in order to avoid giving you an unbiased view.

I checked out Stemuderm’s reviews on Amazon because those tend to be more authentic.

Note: I only analyzed authentic reviews, not promotional or fake ones.

1. Positive Opinions

Shortly, you can buy this cream from these places:

  • Solvaderm's Official Website
  • Amazon

For this reason, you can expect to read customers' reviews on there.

However – I don't really trust the ones written on the official site (because they tend to be biased).

So let's focus on Amazon and here’s what most satisfied users say about it:

  1. A lot of people say that their skin felt smoother and softer.
  2. Some notice their fine lines and wrinkles have reduced.
  3. Other customers say that their dark spots lighten up.

This cream got 4/5 stars overall rating from the 40 people who reviewed it.

So I don't consider it a scam, but it looks like it's still establishing its name.

2. Negative Opinions

Since it still has limited reviews, I only encounter one negative review:

It's understood that a comment like this may arise because the product costs a lot.

I checked out Solvaderm's official website and as expected, there's no 1 star review.

Still – I wouldn't say that this product is exceptional, since there's only a limited number of reviews available.


Conclusion

Overall – I consider this product's current feedback very reliable.

We need more reviews from people in a long run, in order to see if it really works.

But I would say that the positive reviews say this product is legit.

Still – I suggest that you invest in a cheaper product that works and has a better user feedback.

 

 

 


#5 – Side Effects (8 out of 10)


Upon checking Stemuderm's reviews from people who tried it, no one mentioned side effects.

I still don't consider it a good thing, because there are still limited testimonials available.

But if you ask me, here are some negative reactions that may appear:

  • skin irritation
  • allergic reaction
  • burning sensation

I assumed these because they are very common in skin care products.

Now – the allergic reactions might appear if someone is sensitive to an ingredient from this cream.

But it should appear very rarely.

Still, I suggest you to read the list of the ingredients before buying any product.

 

 


#6 – Price (4 out of 10)


Stemuderm is quite expensive – considering that we now know what it's made of.

In my view, I don't really consider it such a good option.

1. The Exact Price

You can purchase this cream from:

  • Its own website
  • Amazon

There's only one size option for this product and it's 50 ml (1.7 fl. oz.).

Both sites sell this product for $79.99 (with free shipping promo).

The only difference is that the Official Website offers free samples of the product and other items.

Regardless of these perks, I would still say that this cream is too expensive.

That especially for those people who need more than one pump because of larger area coverage.

This only means that more product is needed in a month – which requires repurchasing.

So overall – I don't see this as a good deal.

2. Competitors’ Price

I only want to compare this cream with the #1 anti-aging product I know.

This is Kollagen Intensiv:

  1. Kollagen Intensiv has the best formula backed with clinical studies.
  2. Stemuderm has a good formula too (but not even close as potent).
  3. Kollagen Intensiv's Standard Price is around $60 but you can also get it for about $36.
  4. On the other hand, Stemuderm costs $80.
  5. It has a higher quantity, but you also need to use a higher amount.

Between these two creams, Kollagen Intensiv is clearly the better deal.

It has strong anti-aging ingredients and a little amount goes a long way.

So in my view, it’s a way better choice overall.


Conclusion

To wrap it up – Stemuderm is quite expensive for the ingredients it has.

I would understand if it contained strong anti-aging ingredients (such as Retinol, Collagen, Caffeine, AHAs, etc.).

But it contains ingredients that focus more on hydration.

So it will take longer to see any reduction in the appearance of signs of aging.

That's why I recommend you to buy a better alternative that is strong enough to combat signs of aging.

 

 

 


#7 – Stemuderm Anti-Wrinkle Treatment In 3 Ideas


Here’s how I would sum up my opinion on this cream.

1. Basic Formula

I will not lie, this cream's composition is good:

  • has different forms of peptides
  • contains herbal extracts and common skin care ingredients
  • incorporates a plant cell culture

However – I don't find it strong enough as an anti-aging treatment.

Yes, you can see the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles but I think that it won't be drastically as it claims.

It may take some time and more product before you achieve it.

But as a product that provides hydration, I would say that this is a potent product.

2. Legitimate Product

I included this feature because it's important to only buy a product from a trusted company.

Solvaderm is known to sell products that focus on skin and body care.

Although the customers' reviews are quite limited, I would still consider it as proof that this is not a scam.

It has an official website where you can buy its products directly.

And you also reach the brand through the contact details on their website.

3. Quite Expensive

I consider this cream expensive compared to other anti-aging ingredients:

  • 1 bottle costs around $79.99
  • quantity is 50ml (1.7 fl. oz.)
  • needs to be applied twice daily
  • areas of coverage include face, neck and upper chest area

Other than that, since it has a weaker anti-aging formula, it might take you a long time to use it.

That means you need to buy a lot of products to see changes.

Still – I think that there's a better alternative out there.

 

 


My Verdict – Worth It Or Not?


Short answer: Not quite.

I would say that this product is not a scam and it comes from a legit brand.

However – there are reasons to think twice about it:

  1. Works better as a moisturizer
  2. Small quantity for the area of coverage
  3. Quite expensive for its value
  4. Requires to be repurchased more than once a month

Again – I don’t consider Stemuderm a scam.

But there are better options in the market with strong anti-aging benefits.

I'm talking about Kollagen Intensiv:

  1. Best anti-aging formula backed with clinical studies
  2. Strong form of ingredients
  3. A little product goes a long way
  4. 1 jar can last a lot longer 
  5. Less expensive

It may look like it has a smaller quantity – but its actual potency makes it work faster.

Considering its composition as well, I would say that it has some bigger anti-aging benefits.

Overall – it's cheaper in price and has a stronger formula which makes it a good deal.

So if you want to make the most of your money, I suggest you better go for this product.

16 thoughts on “My Stemuderm Review (2022) – Is It A Scam?

  1. Hey there, as a makeup artist, some of my clients ask if I have some good skin care recommendations to make their face good canvass for the makeup. Stemuderm looks very good in the first look. The good thing is you tackle it in every category, it now gave me an idea that some products are not really good even if it comes from a known company. Not hating Stemuderm in general, they actually have a very good product range but I just want to say there are other creams or serums which work better. I am still researching good products so I will have a list of recommendations. Thank you in advance if you have some.

    1. Hi, Marshall! Thank you for appreciating our review. So in order to really know if a product is worth it or not, you should always read and do your careful research. Luckily on this website, we narrow down the important details for you so you can read them easily. If you don’t mind, let me give you an article you can read and maybe some products to consider. Here are the 10 Best Anti-Aging Creams (2021 User Guide) that we rate in our Anti-Aging Creams category. I hope you’ll soon find good products you can recommend to your clients. Good luck!

  2. I am a very suspicious person when it comes to comment anti-aging cream and this is because I used brands such as Guerlain, Stendhal, Jeanne Piubert, YSL, among other brands in the past. One thing that I also learned through out that life was that there is no perfect cream, it all depends on how your skin reacts to the cream, on the healthy habits that a person has if they exercise or not, and so on. The price is really not the basis of the product’s effectiveness so you can buy something with lower prices but still worth it.

    1. Hello, Abegail! I agree that you can’t really find a perfect cream or perfect product at all. As we always say, not all expensive products work better than products with lower prices. It’s just a matter of researching and looking for the best product you think will match the needs of your skin. Of course, the price is also a factor so be smart on where you should invest your money. Have a nice day!

  3. Good day,
    In my opinion some of the best anti-aging ingredients for skin are ceramides, coenzyme Q10, green tea, vitamin C, and hyaluronic acid, do you agree? You should also be sure to wear sunscreen each day, since protecting yourself from the sun is one of the best things you can do to prevent the appearance of aging. Moisturizing ingredients like ceramides and hyaluronic acid can help reduce the appearance of fine lines by hydrating and plumping the skin. Also people should be aware that when using hyaluronic acid, that components should be used very carefully in summer because instead of helping your skin it can make it worst. In the case of Stemuderm, I was actually expecting it have a lot more major skin care ingredients but not. We have different preferences so it might not be good for me but you might find it excellent.
    – Ms. Tyra

    1. Hi, Ms. Tyra! I agree with almost all of your points but let me add another ingredient called Retinol. There are a lot of studies proved that retinol and its derivatives are very good in reducing wrinkles and sun damage to the skin. Honestly, there’s still not a lot of people who are aware of its wonders to the skin. Thank you for leaving a comment. I hope you read more of our reviews under this category and have a nice day!

  4. As a previous user of this product, I did thought that this product is the answer to my saggy under eye bags. I was wrong. It did not do much and it was super expensive. Time to switch to another product, I guess.

    1. Hey Len, Angelica here. Apparently, there are also many of its previous users saying the same thig as you. This is precisely why we don’t really see it as the best and also not the worse even though there were also positive opinions about it. And so, if you are looking for a much better product, I really recommend trying out–even just checking out–Kollagen Intensiv. What you did expect but did not happen in Stemuderm might just be in Kollagen Intensiv. Thanks for sharing your experience!

  5. I’ve been using stemuderm for so long that I did not even consider other products. It does produce some result but now that I am looking at your review, I am now starting to doubt this as my first choice… If possible, aside from your #1 recommended product, is there any other products that you recommend?

    1. Hello Owen, thanks for sharing your experience with this product! It really looks good at first sight so I cannot blame you. Also, if a person is comfortable with a product, it’s no surprise that he or she will continue using it. There is no problem with that however, there is also no issue in changing what you use especially if it doesn’t seem as worth it as before. If you want to look at the products that we found effective against aging, I suggest that you look into this list of anti-aging creams that we recommend. We are not in any way connected with any of the products there but we simply just recommend it for their effects and quality. Hope this helps.

  6. I’m tired of seeing products like this. Can you maybe recommend a alternative/natural solution to remove/reduce wrinkles? I hate seeing my saggy face… Wish I was young again.

    1. Hey, Selina. I’m Angelica and all I can say is that age is really part of life but don’t let that pull you down. A lot of women and men can definitely relate to you and honestly, there are now a lot of products that you can use to prevent or reduce aging. But since I can read that you are tired of going through these products, I can say that there are also an effective way to reduce wrinkle. In fact, we have a guide about it here. This are some of the recommendations that we found but if you would explore our page and utilize the search bar here, you would definitely find more. Anyway, all the best and be confident because it radiates beauty too. Thank you!

  7. I think it all depends on your skin. I really believe that it is either hit or miss for products like this so I guess I am lucky enough to have been able to find what works for me. Thanks for the review and I totally agree with it.

    1. Hi there, Mik. This is Angelica. Thanks for sharing your insight. Yes, I do believe that it also depends on your skin type because not all skin care/anti-aging product works for all types. Sometimes it also becomes a hit or miss because of this. Anyway, so glad that what you found works well with you! Take care.

  8. I am 55 – horrible horrible dry saggy skin, I lost all of my collagen and I went through menopause 39. I have spent thousands of dollars on products promise that don’t deliver, I need a product that is going to help my skin to him and fix my saggy lines around my cheeks and top lip. I have no self-esteem, it’s extremely embarrassing and I’m truly sad that masks are no longer required because I gotta hide it for so long that made me feel so much better. I am waiting patiently for your reply.

    1. Hi Melissa, first of all – I’m sorry for all the issues you’re going through, it must be very hard mentally. But try to not let this bring you down – I know it’s hard, but at least try to. Now, since you say your skin is very saggy, I don’t know if there’s a problem that will bring it back to how it was before menopause. That’s simply because topical products cannot make miracles (no matter what some of them claim). If you want some huge changes, aesthetic procedures are the best bet, I know they can be a bit expensive, but their results are much better than those of any cream/topical products. I recommend anti-aging creams as a prevention method or for people whose lines aren’t very severe. But if their skin is very saggy, I warn them not to expect miracles from creams.

      Now, I would recommend you to try the best anti-aging cream I know, which is Kollagen Intensiv. It’s based on some clinically studied ingredients and it’s backed-up by some specialists, so it’s definitely not a basic product. But again, don’t expect it to make miracles – because it won’t. I could also recommend you to combine it with GenF20 Plus, which is an HGH boosting supplement, so it increases your body’s production of human growth hormone naturally. It has an anti-aging effect from the inside, so it may be really effective (especially if you combine it with Kollagen Intensiv). But even so, I would expect these 2 products to get rid of your saggy skin completely, but they could definitely improve it.

      Additionally, you can also check some of our guides about getting rid of wrinkles</strong> or reversing aging (as much as it’s possible).

      Hope this helps and all the best for you, Melissa!
