Hi,
Does Skin Actives have the ingredients to make an eye cream similar to this?  Any response is greatly appreciated.
Thank you, Leslee

Hi Sassycat52,

I recommend going with the Skin Actives Bright-I Cream. It has many similar ingredients and some that are even better! It is definitely the best product to use for the same issues this Dr. Dennis Gross product is aiming to address.

Thanks,

Kathryn

I use Skin Actives I-Bright and it is wonderful; I used Dr. Dennis Gross' eye Cream and my under eyes swelled and turned red, and my eyes itched.

Interesting.
Here are the ingredients of the Ferulic and retinol eye cream:

Water, Isododecane, Cetearyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Glycol Crosspolymer, Lauryl Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Ceteareth-20, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Sodium Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Glyceryl Behenate, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate, Collagen Amino Acids, Ferulic Acid, Gallic Acid, Ellagic Acid, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Retinol, Aminobutyric Acid, Caffeine, Euphrasia Officinalis Extract, Sphingolipids, Phospholipids, Tetrapeptide-21, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Algae Extract, Sodium PCA, Sodium Hyaluronate, Saccharide Isomerate, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Tocopherol, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, Glycerin, Acrylates/Carbamate Copolymer, Bis-Vinyl Dimethicone/Dimethicone Copolymer, Tetrahydropiperine, BHT, Hexylene Glycol, Caprylyl Glycol, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Isohexadecane, Benzophenone-3, Behenic Acid, Polysorbate 80, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Citric Acid, Cyclodextrin, Sodium Citrate, Tetrasodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Mica (CI 77019), Annatto (CI 75120).

It contains a lot of unnecessary ingredients. But the surprise is the tetrahydropiperine! It is a derivative of pepper. Who had this brilliant idea?

Pepper?  Maybe that's why my eyes watered and itched.
