What You Should Know
Slim Green Reduce Cream is a nifty name for a useless product. According to the product description, the user should apply the cream to the skin and then wrap the area in plastic wrap – the same plastic wrap used to wrap food. The cream can be used without the plastic wrap when going to work or out of the house where plastic wrap may not be conducive. Despite the fact that the name implies reduction cream, there are no ingredients listed that would cause slimming – not even caffeine – though there could be some hidden ingredients in the mix.
List of Ingredients
- Purified Water
- Paraffin Oil
- Stearic Acid
- Sodium Chloride
- Green Blend
There are four ingredients in the Slim Green Reduce Cream that could have an effect on skin – menthol, Spirulina, Chitosan and green blend. The remaining ingredients are used to keep these active ingredients suspended or as the base cream.
Menthol is the ingredient behind the skin tingling mentioned in the product description. There is a connection between menthol and reduced cold symptoms, but we found no connection between the ingredient, weight loss or slimming.
Spirulina is commonly added to oral supplements as a lean plant protein, but there are no studies proving any benefit from applying the plant protein to the skin. The same can be said for Chitosan, an extract from shellfish. The extract is commonly used in oral weight loss supplements and a fat blocker. If you are allergic to shellfish you should not use Slim Green Reduce Cream.
The ingredient we are most interested in is the green blend. The term green could apply to plants, but it could also apply to green tea. Green tea can be standardized for caffeine and if Slim Green Reduce Cream contains caffeine it could cause a slimming of the skin where the cream is applied, temporarily. Caffeine dehydrates the spaces between fat cells leaving the skin looking smoother as the fat cells sit closer together. There is no long-term weight loss effect.
- Ingredients are listed online.
- The cream may cause a slimming effect if the formula contains a source of caffeine.
- May cause a dangerous allergic reaction if the dieter is allergic to shellfish.
Slim Green Reduce Cream is not an effective slimming cream. Slimming creams are generally nothing more than caffeinated creams that cause surface dehydration. Cellulite is minimized as the water between fat cells is temporarily removed or reduced. The effect will not be permanent.
