Hyaluronic Acid Cream LibreDerm
When it comes to a substance such as hyaluronic acid, you should not be mistaken in believing that this component is an acid in the usual sense of the word. In fact, it is a powerful moisturizer, also called a water-retaining ingredient, which makes the skin supple, youthful and moisturized.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural carbohydrate in the human body. It is present in large quantities between the cells of the epidermis, where it provides moisture, providing turgor and skin elasticity.
The skin of a child always looks delightfully soft and supple, the reason for this is that children are born with a high content of hyaluronic acid in the skin, it is it that keeps it plump and smooth. Unfortunately, over time, our body produces it less and less. Particularly noticeable is a decrease in its amount in the skin with age, especially after 40 years, which is why the epidermis requires additional hydration.
Currently, skin care products containing this component are very popular. One of these drugs is the latest Russian cream LibreDerm with hyaluronic acid, which is a completely domestic development.
According to the manufacturer, this cream is distinguished by such features as:
- Possibility of applying to skin of various typesdry to greasy. Such versatility will especially please owners of combined facial skin, who usually have to use two care products at the same time.
- Suitable for people with sensitive skin.prone to redness, irritation, and inflammation.
- At the same time it can be used to care for thin and delicate skin. in areas near the eyes, thereby replacing a specialized cream for these unique facial fragments.
- Recommended for neck skin care. and neckline.
- Universal, can be used as a night cream, but at the same time it shows itself well both as a cream for day skin care and as a base for makeup.
- Effective when used by women and girls of various agesstarting from 18 years and older.
Summing up these statements, we can conclude about the multifunctional and impressive spectrum of effects of this cosmetic product.
Cream LibreDerm with hyaluronic acid has been on sale for a long time, so you can find a sufficient number of reviews that tell about its properties.
Most customers write that they are satisfied with the consistency and absorbency of this cream. They note that it has a light texture that does not leave after applying a greasy sheen, matts and hides bumps, but does not create the effect of a film or mask.
After application, after about 15 minutes, the smoothness and elasticity of the skin increases, its tone improves and the face acquires a more fresh look.
Absorbed completely in about 15 minutes, removing the feeling of dryness on the face, which confirms its moisturizing effect. It copes especially well with skin overdried by the southern hot sun, as often happens after a vacation.
All customers like the presence of a dispenser on the bottle, it allows you to use the contents economically, but still the consumption of the cream seems to many to be too fast, especially when it is used for the neck and décolleté.
Smoothing of small facial wrinkles on the forehead and under the eyes is noted. However, this occurs in relatively young girls whose wrinkles are just beginning to appear.
The smell has a neutral, almost imperceptible on the skin, with a barely noticeable soft aroma.
The unpleasant properties include the fact that, judging by the reviews, after a couple of weeks of use for owners of oily skin, it can cause the appearance of black spots and even pimples, which they directly associate with the increased comedicity of some components of this product.
The composition of any cosmetic product is indicated on its packaging, sometimes it is written exclusively in English or Latin. However, in the case of the LibreDerm cream, which is produced exclusively in Russia, some of the components are indicated in Russian, which facilitates understanding for the consumer.
According to international standards, ingredients are listed in descending order, starting from the component that makes up the largest percentage.
Therefore, it is not surprising that in the first place in the list of LibreDerm cream ingredients is such a component as demineralized water. The term "demineralized" means that the water included in the cream is cleared of all salts, which makes it very soft. Typically, this quality of water is used to create pharmaceuticals.
Next item goes camelina oil. The first association that occurs when the name of this oil is associated with mushrooms - saffron mushrooms. But this is absolutely not the case. Ginger, from whose seeds oil is obtained, is a plant of the cruciferous family, growing in eastern Europe, in Siberia and Southeast Asia; another name for camelina oil: "German sesame" or "sesame".
Camelina oil has a high percentage of polyunsaturated fatty acids (over 60%); minerals such as magnesium, and phytosterols. The properties inherent in this product, wound healing, antibacterial and antitumor, are fully transmitted to the means in which it is present.
The presence of camelina oil in the second position among the ingredients of the cream indicates its high percentage.
Drug called Sensiderm B, which is in third place, is an emollient complex developed by the Russian research and production company Teresa-Inter. An emollient is a medicinal substance that creates a film on the surface of the skin and, thus, does not allow moisture to evaporate and holds it in the upper layers of the epidermis.
If you look in more detail, then in the complex "Sensiderm B"includes synthetic and natural thickeners (cetearyl octanoate and capric-capric triglycerides), alcohol (isopropyl myristate) and directly mineral oil added to cosmetics to prevent oxidative processes.
The substance in the following place is absorbent and thickenerwidely used in the manufacture of children's goods (sodium polyacrylate).
Dimethicone It is a silicone of synthetic origin, widely used in cosmetology to improve gliding, but it is able to “clog” pores and cause allergies.
Phenoxyethanol is an antiseptic, preventing the cream from deteriorating, ethylhexylglycerol is a stabilizer and preservative. Both of them are widely used in cosmetic preparations of well-known foreign companies.
The smallest amount, judging by the location in the list of ingredients, in the composition of the cream takes directly itself hyaluronic acid. It is difficult to judge exactly what volume quantity this component should occupy in the composition, especially since some of the popular European brands are similar. For example, the packaging of the famous Lancome face cream “Visionnaire Creme Multi-Correctrice Fondamentale” does not contain hyaluronic acid at all, it is only mentioned in the annotation.
The manufacturer’s website LibreDerm reports that the cream contains hyaluronic acid in the form of three different fractions:
- High molecular weight hyaluronic acid works on the surface of the skin, its fairly large molecules are not able to penetrate deep into the epidermis.
They form a thin elusive film, which is an additional barrier to the evaporation of moisture from the skin, increasing the water content in it and increasing the absorption of other components of the cream into the skin;
- Medium and low molecular weight variants hyaluronic acid created by the cleavage of standard molecules. Such an acid penetrates the skin and begins to attract water from the capillaries, saturating it with cells deep inside the skin. It is this effect that explains the increase in elasticity, skin tone and rejuvenation.
Advantages and disadvantages
At the first acquaintance with this cream, customers pay attention to the packaging and design of the bottle. Without exception, everyone likes the appearance of the bottle, its noble and attractive design. The fact that LibreDerm cream is equipped with a dispenser is a definite plus, thanks to this, dust does not get into the bottle, the composition does not oxidize and retains its properties longer. The inscription on compliance with the requirements of GOST refers specifically to the design of the bottle, as stated on the official website of the manufacturer.
The consistency of the cream is also noted as its undoubted advantage: the product is not heavy, it resembles a gel, it is absorbed equally quickly and on the dry skin of the cheeks in the T-zone, which for many is characterized by excessive fat content.
You do not have to wait long until the cream is completely absorbed, it is especially convenient when using it as a base for makeup. Moisturization, which can be felt after application to the skin, affects the disappearance of the feeling of tightness and the absence of peeling on the surface of the skin.
During use, there is a decrease in redness on the skin, which at the same time becomes smoother and more even. Small wrinkles are indistinguishable on the face.
The cream smells almost nothing, the maximum is the gentle, barely perceptible smell of baby soap. There are no dyes or perfume in it.
The disadvantages include reports of the low effectiveness of this cream for use in the winter season. This is said by many customers, emphasizing that in summer the cream copes well with the moisturizing function. The explanation of this fact is quite trivial: in the cream there are water molecules that simply freeze at a cold temperature, which is why it is not recommended to use it as a winter means for makeup.
Also a minus can be called the fact that there is no cumulative effect.
The skin after refusing to use this product quickly lose its acquired gloss, although a similar remark can be addressed to manufacturers of almost every cream with hyaluronic acid.
As soon as they are no longer used, the skin returns to its original state. The reason for this action lies in the nature of the most active substance: the hyaluronic molecule. Introduced from the outside, it is able to exist in the depths of the epidermis for only two days, then dissolves under the influence of phagocyte cells.
The disadvantages include the lack of components in the cream LibreDerm, which are SPF filters and can protect the skin from the harmful effects of sunlight.
The LibreDerm line of creams is developed taking into account the requirements for the care of all skin areas, so every woman can choose the product according to her preferences.

It is used both as a care product and as a base for makeup. The next time you apply makeup, you must allow the cream to completely absorb, but this usually does not take a long time.
When applied before bedtime, cosmetologists advise doing this at least 30 minutes before bedtime, because otherwise it is possible to get a slightly swollen face in the morning.
Taking into account consumer reviews, it is advisable to recommend applying the product to slightly moistened skin, this will contribute to its more economical distribution.
Cosmetic preparations of the brand, especially face and skin creams near the eyes with hyaluronic acid, are of great interest to customers of all ages, as well as to cosmetologists and doctors.
In many ways, this is facilitated by the reviews of consumers who have tested the effect of this cream on their skin. This product has been on the market for more than a year, this time is enough to be tested by a significant number of picky and thinking women who are used to monitoring the condition of their skin.
It should be noted that it is on this cream that there is the largest number of responses, and almost every one confirms the effectiveness of its use as a moisturizer.
Buyers note that the cream manufacturer does not make any particularly attractive promises, for example, does not guarantee a noticeable smoothing of wrinkles. But the fact that the skin will change for the better and will feel hydrated and more toned, advertising does not fool.
It is worth highlighting such opinions:
- This cream is considered minimal in the presence of chemical components compared to similar products that do not contain any dyes or perfume compositions;
- When applied around the eyes, it does not cause mucosal irritation, which often happens with other face creams;
- The result is visible in the mirror, others also note positive changes;

- When used as a makeup base, the pores are not clogged, in the evening the makeup is washed off more easily;
- If used regularly, the skin actually feels better.
There are a certain number of girls disappointed with this cream, their opinions boil down to the following:
- The skin still lacked moisture, after a short time the girls want to apply something else;
- It can only moisturize the skin, but no more;
- Few directly hyaluronic acid;
- Dries the skin around the lips, after use, rashes and irritation appear.
An interesting fact is that in the comments on such dissatisfied reviews there are whole disputes, and many immediately talk about their successful experience using this tool.
It is worth saying that there are few unsatisfactory reviews, in general, buyers give a positive assessment to LibreDerm cream with hyaluronic acid, and recommend it for use, noting that every woman herself should try its effect, for comparison and understanding.
The medical community has a double approach to this development of Russian scientists, recognizing that there are cases of allergic reactions to this cream, but they are within the normal range and relate to individual intolerance to the components. To avoid this, cosmetologists recommend that you definitely test the probe before buying.
There is controversy over the amount of the most effective of the components of the drug, hyaluronic acid, which is listed last. Since the manufacturer does not provide additional information on its content anywhere, there are doubts that it is in this cream in the concentrations necessary for the therapeutic effect.
Cosmetologists also comment on the lack of information provided regarding the molecular structure of hyaluronic acid, which is part of the drug, in particular, the size of the molecules, on which the degree of penetration of low molecular weight HA into the deep layers of the epidermis, is not indicated.
There are also doubts about the price of the cream, which is significantly lower than its foreign counterparts. This is due to the fact that the production of low molecular weight hyaluronic acid requires significant power, and this is a very expensive process. Therefore, pharmacologists and cosmetologists are perplexed how the LibreDerm cream manufacturer manages to keep the price of his product at such a low level, which contains such an expensive component as low molecular weight hyaluronic acid. For comparison, similar products from well-known European brands are several times more expensive.
Buyers are quite happy with the price: they believe that the price-quality ratio in this case can be called successful.
Regarding the comparison with the prices of similar creams from foreign manufacturers, it is noted that for the Russian consumer this is significant money, which not every woman can spend on the cream.
The reviews pay special attention to the exceptionally successful and attractive packaging design, the presence of a well-functioning dispenser and the ability to remove it from the bottle in order to extract the remaining cream.
There is confidence in the quality of the product and the fact that this cream is sold exclusively in pharmacies, subject to all storage and transportation conditions.
