Cellulean Cellulite Cream Review

Every manufacturer of cellulite products has to focus on something unique to make their products better than their many competitors. Yet there are a base number of ingredients that are commonly known to be somewhat effective as a treatment of cellulite. In order for the product to meet the popularity needs from a marketing point of view they should have these well known ingredients in them. From this point they must then strive to be unique by offering additional ingredients that may be beneficial, as well as their own development of a delivery system to have the ingredients penetrate the area being treated.

Cellulean

This product is heavily promoted on the basis that it contains 45 cellulite fighting ingredients and also on its unique delivery system.

The major focus of Cellulean is centered around is its ability to greatly increase a positive appearance of the cellulite area with results being achievable in as little as two weeks in some cases.

Ingredients

45 ingredients in one product to treat cellulite is impressive. However, it depends on what these ingredients are, how effective they really can be, and in what quantity the product possesses of these.
These are the major products that are commonly used in the treatment of cellulite. As noted many of them are extracts from superior botanicals that each have specific benefits. They will have the ability to soften the skin and make it suppler which in turn makes it look smoother in appearance.

Why Cellulean may work

The product has a lot of very beneficial ingredients plus two other important features. One is that it is a gel base which may mean easier penetration of the skin area and second its trademarked delivery system Trans-Derma-Fuze Delivery System™ which is reported as being able to allow for deeper penetration of the active ingredients

Why it may not work
If the user is putting all their faith in that the product will work because it contains almost everything that is being hailed as being beneficial for cellulite, then they may be disillusioned. The cause of the cellulite would dictate what would be the most beneficial treatment, and the causes are controversial, as there can be many different culprits. So if one specific ingredient was most beneficial as a treatment for a particular case of cellulite and this product did not have a substantial amount of this ingredient then the results would be limited.
Pros

The good feature about this product is not the quantity of products but the quality of them. There is a good mix of compounds that each have a specific action to perform on the cellulite. The delivery system with a gel base may be a good thing as well.

Cons


Sometimes too much of a good thing can be bad. It is not known with their being so many ingredients if they would be working against each other. The other factor is that with some individuals, using a gel base leaves their skin feeling tacky.

Summary


Overall, all of the ingredients being used in Cellulean appear to be of good quality. My concern would be is just how much of a quantity would there be of these ingredients to really produce the maximum potential that they are capable of. It would seem that if there are 45 product contents, that there would be many that really would not have the quantity needed for full benefit, and perhaps minimal amounts are being used merely for marketing and promotional standpoints.
Usually product ingredients are listed according to their quantity. In the case of this product if water were the second ingredient on the list then that may mean the majority of the product would be water with the rest of the ingredients following in order of quantity.
Overall one may want to adopt the attitude that something is better than nothing, or every little bit helps. This can be very true when it comes to treating the look of the cellulite and not expecting the elimination of it. If this is the attitude that is used when contemplating on buying this product then overall it would be a good choice to make. It most likely would mean though that the product would have to be used on a continuous basis unless other constructive measures were put in place to actually combat the cellulite, which would include diet and exercise.
There are many things that have to be considered for cellulite treatment. Setting reasonable expectations is the starting point. Then analyzing the product to see if it has what it takes to meet those expectations and to what degree, is a helpful in deciding whether you want to invest the money the product is asking for.
