Cellulean is a topical gel that might improve the appearance of areas plagued by excess adipose tissues; particularly the swollen, uneven fat cells known as cellulite. When applied daily, significant improvement could be obtained in approximately two weeks.
Like most products of its kind, Cellulean promises to make the skin in conflictive areas such as abdomen, thighs and buttocks look smoother and tighter. This creates the impression that there is less cellulite than before. In addition, Cellulean could diminish stretch marks and make them “fade” through the same skin toning process. Cellulean does not claim to “burn” or otherwise eliminate cellulite and excess body fat; it simply promotes itself as a means to a sole end: sleeker skin that is more even in texture and less lumpier to the eye.
The product is said to be promoted by medical professionals internationally, although there are no clinical or independent studies to substantiate the medical community’s supposed enthusiasm for this beauty product.
Cellulean is sold online and very little information, if any, is known about the product’s manufacturer.
Cellulean has over 45 active ingredients in its formula. Many of them are botanical extracts, but the gel incorporates other chemical substances that can be found in most skin products. The product content reads as follows:
Aloe Barbadensis (Organic Aloe Vera) Leave Juice, Water, Camellia Sinesis (Green Tea/EGCG) Leaf Extract, Algae (Seaweed) Extract, Theophylline, Caffeine, Soy Lecithin (Phosphatidyl Choline Liposomes), Ginko Biloba Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, L-Carrnitine, Butylene Glycol, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E Acetate), Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A Palmitate), Retinol (Vitamin A), RNA, Pyridoxine HCI, Phenylalanine (L-Phenylalanine), Mannitol, Linalool, Macadamia (Nut) Ternifolia Seed Oil, Inositol, Histidine HCI, Fucus Vesiculosus (Bladderwrack) Extract, Foeniculum Vulgare (Fennel) Fruit Extract, Enteromorpha Compressa Extract, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Extract, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Sterols, Arginine (L-Arginine), Allantoin, Aesculuc Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Extract, Tetrasodium EDTA, Tilia Cordata Wood Extract, Capsaicin, DMDM Hydantoin, Cupressus Sempervirens Seed Extract
Among these substances, green tea extract is a powerful antioxidant that has been proven to protect skin from free radicals and therefore help prevent premature aging of the skin.
Significant among some of the less natural and more purely chemical ingredients is Tetrasodium EDTA (Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid). Just to give readers an idea of how this acid works, it is commonly used by dentists to strip and dissolve the inside of root canals during endodontic treatment so that these canals become softer and more easily widened.
Cellulean contains no parabens, but Tetrasodium EDTA is used cleverly by many beauty product manufacturers as a conservative in lieu of controversial parabens.
How Cellulean works?
Cellulite is the result of inevitable hormonal influences that make a woman’s body accumulate fat in order to prepare for reproduction and nursing. The end result of this biological process is bulging adipose (fat) cells which, due to their high content in both intra and extracellular liquid and toxins, tend to distend the membranes surrounding them and make them very noticeable through the skin. This is what creates the well known “orange peel” or “cottage cheese” skin that affects nearly all women and some men.
Cellulean will not destroy or eliminate any of this excess fat content. What it might do moisturizes the skin, make it tighter and more toned on the surface and, therefore, more inclined to hold the distended fat cells in and reduce the apparent volume of troubled areas. Optically, moist skin refracts light better and makes cellulite less noticeable.
Cellulean is expensive: a 6-ounce supply costs over $100. Based on what the gel promises to deliver, it appears to be strikingly similar to many other such products, albeit with a much higher price tag. Anyone who is interested in trying Cellulean should be aware that they may obtain similar results, or none at all, for a lot less money.
Cellulean touts a Trans-Derma-Fuze Delivery System that ensures that the vast array of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, peptides and botanical ingredients in the gel penetrate deeply into the skin.

Many other anti cellulite products could achieve the same results for a lot less money.
Cellulite refers to fat deposits under the surface of the skin giving it a dimpled, irregular appearance. The vast majority of women have cellulite, some estimates are as high as 90 percent.
