I created this lotion as an experiment. I wanted to use something that was a little closer to nature and every product that I bought had so many ingredients that I couldn't pronouce. After 2 weeks of using this nightly I actually saw a difference and knew I was onto something, and had to get this out to share with everyone! This doesn't compare to professional procedures but for those who are not ready to go that route or even want to use in addition with professional procedures then give this lotion a try
