Key Ingredients In Cellulite Creams
Aminophylline: Aminophylline is a well know asthma reliever that is used to relax the lungs in asthma patients. Aminophylline is a spin off of a common muscle relaxer Theophylline. For years cosmetic companies have claimed the Theophyllline when added to cellulite treatment creams would break down fat cells in the body, scientific tests however showed it would not.
Retinoids: Although its claimed cannot be backed up be any scientific studies Retinoids are claimed to reduce wrinkles on human skin. Consumer feedback on Retinoids is that they do work well and are often the main ingredient in other skin smoothing creams as well as cellulite treatment creams. Retinoids are a derivative of Vitamin A and can be destroyed by exposure to light, because of this Retinoids should only be applied at night before bed.
Although these are not the only ingredients in cellulite treatment creams they are the main ingredient in almost all the cellulite creams available. Will a cellulite cream work for you? The answer is every person reacts differently to different things and the best thing to do is experiment with well known creams and gels and judge the results for yourself.
