About the Brand

Excelagene Intensive Hydration Serum Review

Solvaderm Skincare is a well-known brand in the industry for their ability to combine science and nature in their products. They utilize natural extracts and ingredients that have been tested and proven effective through several scientific studies by top dermatologists.

Main Ingredients

Excelagene Intensive Hydration Serum is packed with 7 really potent ingredients. It’s this blend that enables the serum to work like magic in fighting signs of skin aging and protecting the skin from the inside out.

Let’s start off with hyaluronic acid.

Hyaluronic acid comes in two forms: low molecular weight and high molecular weight. Both of these forms exist in the serum.

Low molecular weight HA works to correct moisture loss from the deeper layers of the skin while the high molecular weight HA locks in moisture on the skin’s surface. Together, these two leave the skin properly hydrated, supple, and radiant.

Another ingredient you can find in this serum is Ameliox which is actually a complex that fights both skin aging and glycation. It’s made up of Tocopherol, Carnosine, and Silybum Marianum fruit extract.

And then there’s PerfectionPeptide P7 that is also a complex. It’s composed of shea butter, glycerin, and Acetyl sh-Heptapeptide-1.

The names may sound intimidating but they’re actually a great help for the skin. The complex ensures that the skin isn’t just properly conditioned but protected, too.

Uses and Effects

Excelagene Intensive Hydration Serum is one of your best options if you are looking for an effective anti-aging solution. Because it addresses skin aging at the surface and cellular level, you can expect it to preserve your skin’s appearance and texture.


Well, because it contains potent antioxidants, the serum is able to fight the negative effects of free radical damage and oxidative stress. They are two of the most common causes of premature skin aging.

They can happen when you’re chronically exposed to stress, cigarette smoke, pollution, UV rays, and alcohol.

The serum can also stop the glycation process. Now, what is that?

Glycation happens when sugar molecules bombard your cells, including the ones that make your skin elastic and plump (read: elastin and collagen). Those molecules weaken your skin’s protein, causing wrinkles, fine lines, and dullness to appear earlier than they are supposed to.

And you know what else this serum can do?

It can really hydrate the skin. So, apart from keeping the skin plump and radiant, it can also prevent dryness and flakiness.


Formulated by dermatologists, the serum is one of the few products that went through strict safety tests to assure you that it won’t compromise your skin.

It’s free from potential irritants like parabens, sulfates, and synthetic perfumes, making it great for all skin types.

How to Use

The serum is very easy to use. You just have to take a small amount of the product and apply on your clean face.

Make sure to apply to your entire face as well as your neck to reduce visible signs of skin aging. You can use a patting motion to allow the product to really penetrate the skin.

For best results, use the serum twice a day. For morning use, don’t forget to apply a sunscreen after to ensure maximum protection.


The serum is part of Solvaderm’s Daily Hydration Treatment. If you want to get the best results, you should definitely consider using it with the other products in that line.


Excelagene Intensive Hydration Serum Review

Excelagene Intensive Hydrating Serum comes in an amber glass bottle which is really great for prolonging the shelf life of the product and preserving the ingredients inside. You see, antioxidants degrade faster when exposed to air and light.

The serum also comes with a dropper that allows precision when dispensing. It prevents contamination of the product, too.
