WHAT IS IT?
Centellian 24 Madeca Derma Cream claims to protect the skin from the harmful effects of the external environment. With key ingredient TECA (Titrated Extract of Centella Asiatica) — which is known to effectively heal wounds, minimize scars, and promote skin regeneration — the cream gives the skin the immediate moisture it needs, all while relieving freckles and dark marks. It also claims to be suitable for all skin types.
This cream has a whopping amount of 88 ingredients, yet none of it is an actual anti-acne. (But for the record, it doesn’t really claim to be an anti-acne product, some beauty stores just claim it is. You can see the entire list in CosDNA Analysis.) If you’re someone into skincare, professional or not, you’ll know that 88 is quite a lot for a product. Some of you might be thinking, “that sounds good, it contains a lot of stuff.” I already discussed this in my previous post and in there I mentioned, the least the number of ingredients in a skincare product, the better. It means the product is purer. Need more convincing? Read this detailed post from Geeky Posh why less is better.
But out of those 88 ingredients, only five are notable which are Achillea Millefolium Extract and the Centella Asiatica Leaf Water which is the main ingredient, it promotes wound healing, meaning they are anti-inflammatory which can at least reduce the redness on the skin. Adenosine, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), and Niacinamide which have anti-aging benefits while the latter, also doubles as a brightening product.
Having said that, this cream also contains a bunch of ingredients not suitable for those with sensitive skin such as essential oils like Orange Oil & Extract, Lavender Oil, Jasmine Oil, and Cananga Odorata Flower Oil. Plus, it also has Alcohol Denant. So YMMV! If you want to learn more about good and bad alcohol, check out this post.
Also, make sure to double cleanse day and night when using this twice a day, because this product also contains Shea Butter and Synthetic Beeswax which clogs pores.
APPLICATION: Apply an adequate amount of the Centellian 24 Madeca Cream onto the skin. Gently massage/pat the cream all over the face to aid speedy absorption. Or you can just directly apply it in areas where you need improvement like a spot treatment.
SCENT: It has the exact same scent as the Madeca Derma Mask, which resembles Klairs Supple Preparation Toner, the original formula. But it kinda resembles an ointment for burns as well.
PACKAGING: It is packaged in a tube that resembles an ointment or a toothpaste. But it does not feel or look cheap either. It also comes with a box with the same design and colors.
FORMULA: Well, speaking of ointment which I already mentioned twice, the Madeca Derma Cream’s formula really resembles an ointment. It is creamy yet a little greasy and thick. It takes a while to be absorbed in your skin if you have an oily skin. It feels a bit greasy like a physical sunscreen and it leaves a donut glaze-like finish. Avid users have dubbed it “Madeca Glaze”. I may hate the feeling but in fact, creams with a formula like that actually work as a shield to protect skin moisture barrier and from other harmful effects of the environment.
