Dimples are cute on your face, but not on your thighs. Cellulite is a problem that effects as much as 85% of the world’s female population and some men have cellulite as well. That lumpy, bumpy, cottage cheese type fat that gathers around the belly, on the hips, thighs, and fanny is all too common. There are conflicting thoughts on its cause with fingers pointing at excess weight, poor circulation, heredity, diet, and other factors. We do know that heredity does play a role in cellulite’s appearance and that cellulite gets worse as we age. There are multiple products on the market that say they can help reduce the appearance of cellulite. Lipolene is a cream that claims it can dramatically improve the skin’s appearance and lessen cellulite. Does it work?
No official website was found for Lipolene so there is a limited amount of information available about this cellulite cream. Here’s what is known:
Lipolene is manufactured by a company named Skin Doctors Cosmeceuticals. The product does contain some ingredients that have been clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite. Some of those ingredients include caffeine and Theobroma cacao, other wise known as cocoa. These two ingredients are xanthenes and scientists know that xanthenes help speed up circulation and act as diuretics, which helps eliminate excess fluids and restructure cells.
Some of the other active ingredients in Lipolene include:
- Forksolin – an herbal ingredient that is believed to stimulate fat loss
- Seaweed – to restore elasticity to the skin and detoxify and cleanse
- Gotu Kola – for strengthening connective tissue and improving blood circulation
- Rosemary oil – a natural diuretic
- Salicylic acid and apple juice – used as exfoliants
- Aloe Vera – a natural moisturizer that helps re balance the skin’s PH level
The theory is that this combination of ingredients works to break down fat, decrease water being held in fat cells, and smooth, tighten, and firm the skin, making the cellulite less noticeable. Lipolene manufacturers promise you will see optimal results within 8 weeks of begining regular topical applications to cellulite trouble spots.
Where to Buy Lipolene

Lipolene anti cellulite cream does contain ingredients that are known to temporarily improve the appearance of cellulite. Unfortunately, there is no official website to provide us more facts about this product. We’d really like to see more information about Lipolene before recommending it. Because it is not available from US retailers, it seems to us it makes more sense to try one of the many other cellulite creams available to purchase in this country.
