Amatokin: Can it be the Fountain of Youth?

As early as 2006, rumors on a new revolutionary anti-aging product named Amatokin has been circulating. According to press releases, Amatokin was discovered 62 miles north of St. Petersburg, Russia (really now?). The original research was aiming to improve and heal the skin of burn victims by harnessing the power of stem cells. Most of you remember that stem cell research has been the focus of debate for years. Many questioned the use of stem cells from a fertilized human egg to aid several research on several incurable diseases. Now, they claim that the human skin is the largest repository of stem cells and Amatokin will stimulate these cells to divide and regenerate faster. Wow! If all these were true, it could be the discovery of the century. Maybe that is how they justify the steep price tagged to Amatokin. A 30 ml tube cost a whopping US$190. Mothers may start selling off their youngest kid just to afford them.

I surfed the net looking for serious reviews on the product. But like other products like Stri-Vectin SD, reviews are varied. Some say it delivers, others say nay. What am I left with then? Does it work only on some skin types? Or did the negative reviews come from manufacturers or marketers of competitors? Or maybe those who say it did wonders were in denial and will not admit that they wasted precious money? It is confusing. I always get these kind of reviews on high-priced products. The same thing happened when I researched on Creme de la Mer. Some say it is a miracle, others say hype. One of our VPs had a sister who got into an accident and suffered burns all over her face. The doctor recommended La Mer and it cost about US$125 per ounce. According to them it worked — they bought several ounces (wouldn’t mind being that loaded).

The only way to find out is to buy it yourself and test it. That means risking almost US$200 just to find out if it is a miracle or not. As I am not yet sure I am ready to take out my wallet for this, I will continue to search for reviews, hoping something credible will come out. But if I do become brave enough to test it, rest assured I will give everyone an honest review.
