What You Should Know
The Natural Sculpting System was created by either Patty Zimmerman or Dr. Garza. The system combines essential oils and a long list of instructions to reduce the look of cellulite under the skin. No information could be found about the Patty Zimmerman Natural Sculpting System aside from a few questions on a forum. Dr. Garza, however, offers an official Natural Sculpting System website complete with instructions and online ordering. Before and after photos are also included on Dr. Garza’s website.

There are too many ingredients in the Natural Sculpting System for any dieter to trusts this product. Often, manufacturers will list many ingredients in order to convince the dieter the product is packed with herbs and solutions that are bound to increase weight loss, or in this case, decrease the look of cellulite. Pushing through the ingredient list brings us to a common weight loss ingredient that we often suggest dieters stay away from – Citrus Aurantium.
Capsules are not taken internally on the Natural Sculpting System plan. Instead, they are broken open and applied to the skin. While there are no known studies concerning the absorption of Citrus Aurantium through the skin, we do know that caffeine absorbs and is commonly used in cellulite creams to dehydrate space between fat cells to make the skin look slimmer. This could be the case with Citrus Aurantium.
There is a bit of green tea in the sculpting body cream, but the dieter has no idea how much is included and green tea is typically taken internally to increase weight loss, not applied to the skin.
The Natural Sculpting System sells for $119 per kit. Kits are ordered based on the area where cellulite reduction is needed. When ordering the Natural Sculpting System from Dr. Garza, orders will be auto-shipped until dieters cancel the product.
- Cellulite reduction systems do not increase weight loss.
- The dehydrating effects of the ingredients will only last a short time.
- All orders are auto-shipped unless the consumer cancels.
Whether the Natural Sculpting System is created by Patty Zimmerman or Dr. Garza, the fact remains that this product is overpriced and will not increase real weight loss.
