Three key competitive advantages of Alina Skin Care

We are a science-driven company that believes damage and premature aging of skin are primarily caused by three key issues: dehydration, inflammation, and collagen and elastin breakdown. All of our products are specially formulated to directly bring relief and support to these three key areas of skin damage. We have two patented ingredients unique to our products and our Alina Proprietary Antioxidant Blend that give us a scientific and clinically proven advantage over other anti-aging skincare brands.


Inflacin® is a patented, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory that has been clinically proven to calm irritated skin. Keeping your skin calm and less irritated on a daily basis is critical to maintaining healthy looking, vibrant skin. Alina Skin Care truly delivers innovation and superior skin care products through the use of proprietary ingredients like Inflacin®.


We utilize a proprietary patented and clinically proven technology called Qsomes®. Qsomes® is an organic fatty acid based technology that improves the penetration of ingredients into the skin. Many skincare ingredients have a large molecular weight that prevents them from penetrating deep into the skin compromising effectiveness. Qsomes® enable us to deliver a higher percentage of active ingredients deeper into the skin than other brands, thus creating a more effective product. It’s simple, the more active ingredients you can get to penetrate deep into the skin the greater results you will see.

Alina Proprietary Antioxidant Blend

All Alina Skin Care products contain our proprietary Alina Antioxidant Blend of green and white tea extracts in addition to Vitamin E and Aloe to help protect your skin against oxidative stress and free radicals.


Review:  The one constant in my daily skin care regime is moisturizer.  I don’t wear a lot of make up or have some elaborate process I go through to keep my skin healthy.  So for me, finding a quality moisturizer is key.  When the request to review this product came across my desk, I figured it couldn’t hurt and description piqued my interest.

It is a nice little container with a pump top.  I’m not sure how useful that pump will be when I get to the bottom of the bottle.  But for now, a pump gives the right about of moisturizer so that I’m not slathering too much on my face.

The moisturizer itself if creamy and goes on smoothly.  It’s not greasy and it leaves my skin… well, moisturized.  I’ve been using it for about 2 months now and while I can’t say that my skin is healthier or softer, I’ve not seen any adverse affects.

I really only have one complaint and it’ll probably be the thing that prevents me from buying more in the future.  There’s a slight scent to it.  It’s not a bad scent and I’m generally not all that sensitive to scents, in fact, I lean towards scented lotions for my body… BUT not my face.  However, it’s there and occasionally I’ll find myself sneezing right after I put on the moisturizer.

All in all, I liked this moisturizer.  The only thing keeping it from being a must-have in my beauty arsenal is that scent.  It might be for you, but it’s not for me.
