    Is Fusionbeauty Lipfusion really safe eg is it nano tech, etc?
    I asked the company 2x: Q1Have the Lipfusion ingredients been micronized or similar to your skin products that are ‘nano’? Its described as Tiny, dehydrated, marine collagen micro spheres. A1 Tiny, dehydrated, marine collagen microspheres are instantly absorbed by the lips, and seek out the body’s natural moisture. As soon as the spheres become re-hydrated, they plump and hold onto the moisture they’ve collected, creating a mild "swelling" of the lip tissue. The result is fuller, smoother, perfectly plumped lips in seconds. Results can last for up to 48 hours. Q2 I have noticed that a new face product of yours has the word nano in it -Is this used in your Lip Fusion plumper? A2 - The Nanospheres is the delivery system harnessed in Liftfusion Mtox Transdermal Face Lift. The word "nano"is for nanospheres these are particles that are even smaller than microspheres and release the Mtox formula in in order to actually absorb into the specific targeted areas upon contact.

    I feel any chemical solution that causes "swelling" cannot be positive.

    There have been many other scientific mistakes that have caused lost lives and distorted children.

    It's not nanotechnology they are just using it as a flashy and sexy marketting tool. Collagen usually acts in the extra-cellular matrix, so I don't see why they would want it in the cells, nor how dehydrating a macromolecule which never contained any water in the first place could help. It is just marketting nonsense. Collagen is perfectly safe but many people are allergic to it.

    Edit: You should note that collagen shouldn't really inflate your lips, it should just make wrinkles less apparent and fill in gaps.

    Yes, marketing ploys are very prominent.

    Its ridiculous the marketing crap they put on beauty products!

    The motto is 'science is the new God, so lets blind them with scientific technology and make their lips pout!

    The irony is beauty comes from the inside. Eat healthy, don't smoke, drink lots of water and you don't have to spend a fortune on useless products.

    Their success is based on gullibility and ignorance and an obsession with beauty in a tube.

    I was always suspicious of Anita Rodderick and her 'natural' substance marketing gimmick with the Body Shop, all it takes is a scan of the ingredients on the back of the bottles to see it is as full as the same harmful chemicals they all have with perhaps 0.1% of the supposed 'natural' ingredient.

    Then she sold out to L'Oreal and that said it all really.

    The best 'natural' beauty products I've ever discovered all came out of my kitchen cupboard or fridge.
