Dr. Barbara Sturm Eye Cream - The Dermatology Review

Dr. Barbara Sturm Eye Cream



Dr. Barbara Sturm Eye Cream is formulated to target the dark shadows, bags, and puffiness around the delicate eye area. One of the key ingredients in this eye cream is the botanical extract purslane. Purslane has strong regenerative effects on a cellular level, and is rich in antioxidants as well as omega-3 fatty acids (alpha-linolenic acid in particular). Dr. Barbara Sturm Eye Cream also contains a high concentration of macadamia seed oil, a lightweight oil that is well absorbed by the skin without feeling greasy. The high content of fatty acids found in macadamia seed oil enables this ingredient to nourish and hydrate the skin by replenishing the skin’s barrier. Lastly, this eye cream contains a complex of golden root, sugar beet, and yeast to provide a soothing ‘de-puffing’ effect.

While some brands rely on unnecessary fillers and scents, Formulyst focuses on ingredients that help create results, such as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Many of the Formulyst’s products harness the power of plant and citrus extracts as well as gold-standard workhorses such as retinol. Read More
