Be it any newspaper article or magazines there’s always several popping up advertisements for anti cellulite creams. Promising to decrease spongy, dimply, cottage-cheese looking skin, causing distress to most women worldwide. Cellulite affects millions of women all over the world. Although it doesn’t pose any risk to your health. There are many methods of treating cellulite one of them being an anti-cellulite cream. However, there is no certain guarantee of the impact of such creams. It is often questioned by doctors and researchers. It can be true that anti-cellulite cream and skin firming cream along with exercise and good diet might add in decreasing cellulite. But how effectively they can really offer to your cellulite is a big question.

According to doctor Armando Soto, MD, FACS, “Caffeine, Retinol and Antioxidants are common ingredients in many of the creams, and will only temporarily improve the skin tone and texture but don’t really do anything to improve the cause of the cellulite appearance.” He adds saying, “since cream is applied topically it is not possible for the ingredients to penetrate deep enough through the skin to actually treat the fact that causes the dimpled appearance.”

Anti cellulite creams main ingredients

The reality is that none of the anti-cellulite creams are effective enough then just a skin moisturizer. Maybe they can make your skin look smoother and firmer, they cannot pursue the real problem. Which is cellulite formation caused by fatty deposits. You should first understand the basic science of cellulite before considering any kind of treatment. If you want to focus on the cream that really works, make sure the ingredients are powerful in impeding the deposition of fatty cells which causes cellulite.

The main ingredients for anti-cellulite creams:


Retinol is a strong form of ‘Vitamin A’ belonging to the family of ‘retinoids’. Retinol is safe and effective when used as ‘Retinyl Palmitate’. As it does not convert into ‘Retinol Acid’. Retinol increases production of collagen-that encourages younger look, helping in cell regeneration and hydrates skin.


Though it may sound weird coffee is very often considered as an effective ingredient for fighting cellulite. Most creams that show a huge difference in the appearance of cellulite contain caffeine. Caffeine being a diuretic agent combats cellulite marks. Alkaloid present in caffeine stimulates deterioration of fatty deposits below the skin. Caffeine helps in extracting excess moisture and increases blood flow that firms the skin. Do the effect is not long-lasting but good enough to remove cellulite temporarily.


BLADDERWRACK is a type of seaweed that increases metabolism in the body due to the presence of polyphenols and polysaccharides in high concentration. The extract also aids in removing fluids under the skin.


Aminophylline compound is often used in the formulation of anti-cellulite creams. It’s effective in the degradation of fatty accumulation underneath the skin. Aminophylline is an energetic antioxidant.
