The Detailed Review
Composition: What is in the Elastiderm eye cream?
- Proprietary Bi-Mineral Contour Complex.
- Emollients and glycerin.
- Antioxidants enriched Vitamin E and blueberry extract.
- Soothing licorice root extract.
Ingredients: Obagi elastiderm Eye Cream is a high-end cream formulated with a proprietary Bi-Mineral Contour Complex as the main ingredient, synthetic emollients, humectants, and natural extract. The Bi-Mineral Contour Complex has zinc, copper, and malonic acid, which together conduct the restoration of elastin for firm, smooth and resilient skin.
While the emollients soften the skin and reduce dryness, the humectant glycerin moisturizes skin, making wrinkles and fine lines less visible.
The cream also has antioxidants enriched Vitamin E and blueberry extract, and licorice root extract. Antioxidants combat free radicals, and licorice soothes and brightens skin.
Besides these super-ingredients, the formulation of the Elastiderm eye cream contains parabens preservatives. On that note, research and studies have sometimes affirmed and sometimes falsified the potential health hazard of paraben used in cosmetics.
However, the American Cancer Society has discredited the risk of breast cancer caused by paraben.

The cream not just solves the issues it prevents their recurrence.
