Goldenlight is the most high-end and luxurious skincare product Crunchi has yet to create. But is it worth the $98 when you can get Olay’s Skin Serum for $30? Let’s take a deep dive into these ingredients and why $98 is a steal for the ingredients in this product.
Typical serums that include peptides in their ingredients also have harmful ingredients like:
Cyclopentasiloxane Linked to cancer and neurotoxicity
Aminomethyl Propanol High concerns for irritation and contamination
Phenoxyethanol Organ system toxicity, irritation, and use restrictions
PEG-10 Dimethicone Organ system toxicity and use restrictions
Polysorbate 20 Contamination concerns
Retinol Use restrictions, reproductive toxicity, cancer and cellular changes. This is in most of these serums, but studies show that when retinol is exposed to the sun, it speeds up the development of skin tumors and lesions
Chlorphenesin Immunotoxicity and irritation
Retinyl Propionate Reproductive toxicity, cancer, and organ system toxicity
Propylene Glycol Skin irritation
Titanium Dioxide Cancer and organ system toxicity, when not third-party tested for heavy metals
DMDM Hydantoin Formaldehyde Releaser, allergies, irritation, and cancer
These products also on average only contain a few peptides, while Goldenlight contains over a dozen. Peter Thomas Roth had the highest amount of peptides at 21, but it was also filled with the toxic ingredients mentioned above. Peptides are the magical ingredients that create a youthful, radiant look while visibly plumping and forming the skin. So we want plenty of those and we want them near the front of the list, but it's not worth it if they are loaded with toxins and cancer causing ingredients.
Crunchi’s Goldenlight is stacked with peptides and crafted with high-quality ingredients that are packed with phytonutrients and powerful antioxidants to restore and improve the look of your skin for a radiant, ageless appearance. No need to compromise your health for your beauty.
