Question: I hate my dimpley thighs and butt! I have had cellulite since I was a teenager and can’t seem to get rid of it. I have heard of this product called Cellutone that uses egg as the basis for its anti-cellulite formula. How does this product work? What do eggs do to break down cellulite?


Answer: Cellutone is an anti-cellulite cream that claims to use the scientific properties of eggs to reduce cellulite. According to their website, Cellutone is different from other anti-cellulite creams because it does not dehydrate the skin like other products containing caffeine and aminophyllines. According to their site, the product’s active ingredients will remove toxins and fat cells from problem areas rather than temporarily tightening or dehydrating problem areas. The manufacturers of this product claim that this cream will help permanently rid you of cellulite rather then experiencing temporary results.

Although the website makes some pretty exciting claims, they do not offer an ingredient list or any clinical trial data as to the cream’s effectiveness or ability to treat cellulite. There is also no scientific explanation as to how egg extracts, Cellutone main claim, reduce cellulite. It is hard to recommend a product that does not disclose its ingredients or its methods.
