Overview

Pharmagel’s promise of a ‘younger, healthier skin in just two weeks’ is a dream of many women. Known the world over as a leader in skin treatment technologies, Pharmagel has been manufacturing pharmaceutical grade treatment since 1980s. The company boasts of its unique anti ageing treatment that’s made using pharmaceutical grade ingredients. Further blended with vitamins and herbs, the products qualify to be “the most important scientific innovations in the area of skin treatments in the past decade”, as the company puts it. The results are said to be immediate, effective and lasting, making them popular among celebrities, dignitaries and people all over the world.
It is worth visiting the official website for the exhaustive information about the company and its products; fact sheets; frequently asked questions; and most important, the promotional sales.

Product Details

Pharmagel offers a full range of anti-aging products that includes acne treatments, anti-aging treatments, cleansers and toners, eye treatments, moisturizers, scrubs and masques and, specialty treatments.
The product ingredients vary, depending on the purpose and so do the corresponding benefits. The active ingredient in anti wrinkle treatment is Retinol-A, an antioxidant that neutralizes ‘free radicals’, giving a smooth, young looking skin. Pharmagel also uses Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, and Collagen in its product formulations. These ingredients have a proven efficacy quotient. Besides, willow bark extract, green tea extract and other botanicals are also used.
Pharmagel’s website list the key ingredients used in their product range and their benefits. The product brochure provides the ingredient details for every product, directions for use and specific guidance that may be helpful in selecting a product.

What’s Positive

Product range is backed by over two decades of experience in skin treatment.
Detailed product information is available on the website which would be helpful in selecting the right product. Benefits of the various ingredients are also explained.
Products can be ordered from the website or from retail stores that can be located using the store locator feature.
The pharmaceutical ingredients are fortified with vitamins, which ensure that the products are pure. Extensive use of natural products is beneficial for the skin.
Use of advanced formulations in its products namely Retinol-A, Hyaluronic Acid, and Collagen ensures decent results.
The pricing is reasonable in comparison to its counterparts. The products range from $15 to $80. Promotional sales can further cut down the price.

What’s Negative

Pharmagel does not have a money back guarantee. It has a return policy in place but the terms are not very clear.
Products are not available for free trials.
Pharmagel does not offer any information on tests that have been preformed to develop their products.
Although loaded with information, the website does not include customer feedback to prove the product effectiveness. All the info could very well just be propaganda by the company.
Information on clinical trials is not available.
The pricing may seem reasonable in comparison to many others, but still the products prices are on a higher side.

Bottom Line

Pharmagel seems to be progressive in its approach with focus on innovation. Blending of natural and pharmaceutical ingredients seems appealing. The official Pharmagel website is very user friendly and contains lot of useful information about its product range and benefits of each ingredient.
At the same time, just by looking at the ingredients, it is difficult to assess if the product would actually work. Testimonials of product users would have been useful since it offers a better picture of how effective the product is.
Looking at the active ingredients, Pharmagel anti aging products are surely not the worst. Since the products are not very expensive, it may be worth trying- at least once. A money back guarantee or a free product trial would have, however, boosted the confidence enormously.
