Frequently Asked Questions

  • What do the creams consist of?

    Swede Success consists of a world-patented formulation of ingredients. The active ingredients are Alpha Lipoic Acid, Coenzyme Q10 and Acetyl-L-Carnitine.

  • What is the difference between Swede Success and other anti-wrinkle creams?

    Most cosmetic preparations on the market only treat the epidermis (surface skin layers). They have ingredients based on substances, the molecules of which are too large to penetrate down into the Dermis layers of skin, resulting in no effect. In this context, the formulation of Swede Success is unique. It consists of specific active ingredients of very small molecules and, since it is fat and water-soluble, it has a unique capacity of penetrating the skin where it produces a true physiological result.

  • Are there any side-effects associated with Swede Success?

    Directly upon application, some people experience a slight tingling sensation. There may also be an itching or prickling feeling. This is a temporary and completely normal reaction, indicating the use of an active cream.

  • Briefly, how does the cream work?

    Swede Succes increases energy production of the cells and assists in age-related issues. Studies show that oxidised vitamins E and C in the mitochondria in the dermis layers of the skin are converted into an active form when the lipoic acid reaches the skin cells. Both vitamins are strong antioxidants and in addition, vitamin C contributes to the skin preserving its vitality. Swede Success works to produce a physiological effect unlike most creams which have vitamin C and E ingredients which stay on the skin surface and produce no effect. Studies also indicate that lipoic acid also stimulates the skin cells to convert the skin’s existing vitamin A into vitamin A acid which also has a repairing effect on wrinkles. In addition, the cream also has a muscle-astringent effect, thus increasing skin vitality.

  • How quickly does the product provide its effect?

    Some will notice the effect within 2-3 weeks whereas others may see results after one month. Most people appear to notice reduced pigment-spots and pore size relatively quickly.

  • Packaging and advertisement indicates that this product is intended for women. Wouldn’t it also be intended for men?

    Although our marketing communication is primarily targeted at women, this product is just as suitable for men.

  • Swede Success does not contain any UV-protection. What should I do when out in the sun? Can you combine skin cream with sun-protection? Should Swede Success only be applied at night?

    Swede Success deliberately does not contain any UV protection as most people apply the cream in the early morning and any UV ingredients would not be very effective many hours later when the sun is strongest. We advise Swede Success users to refrain from exposing their skin to strong sunlight or extremely cold weather directly after application. When going out into the sun, use your preferred sun block with the highest SPF rating.

  • Does this cream reduce pigment spots?

    During the clinical and photographic assessment, the number as well as the distribution of pigment spots have visibly decreased on several subjects. Many of those using Swede Success have been notably satisfied with this effect.

  • Could the cream affect superficial blood vessels?

    Swede Success increases the flow in superficial blood vessels, dilating these, possibly increasing visible flushing. For some people, using Swede Success may not be advisable if you are troubled by superficial blood vessels. However, some people with this problem have reported very positive results as the skin’s health has improved over time.

  • Does Swede Success contain any metals or mineral oils?

    No.

  • How long would a 50mL tube of Swede Success Day and Night Cream or Soft Cream last?

    Applied morning and night, a tube would last approximately 6 weeks.

  • What if the skin seems to stay too dry after using Swede Success?

    Swede Success is not a very “rich” cream. Some women, especially when they are 50+, find that they may require additional moisturising. The reason is that the skin gets dryer with ageing. For some people, it may be necessary to complement with applying a neutral cream after Swede Success.

  • What if the skin seems rough after use?

    There is a small percentage of women that experience side effects. (The percentage for Swede Success is in line with cosmetics and food), Some women experience redness and/or have a “peeling” effect in that their skin starts to exfoliate. This is not dangerous, rather it shows that the skin is responding a bit too well to the treatment. In some cases, they may not be able to continue using the Original D&N Cream but have to switch to the Soft Cream. However, as some customers have noticed, when the redness disappears, the skin is left in very good condition.
