Madara Organic Eye Repair Cream
Part of the new organic cosmetics craze that has hit the shelves in the past few years, Madara Organic Eye Repair Cream is described as being a rich, deeply hydrating cream that firms, lifts and repairs skin in the delicate eye area.
It also claims to boosts natural collagen production and thereby helps to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. In order to boost collagen production, it would need to contain some peptides or stem cells or other active ingredients in large doses in order to truly be effective. Let’s see what’s inside, and if Madara’s Organic Eye Repair Cream truly delivers.

What Else Should I Know About Madara Organic Eye Repair Cream?
The first three ingredients, which are the most prevalent in the cream, are water, rose water, and coconut oil. Beyond that, we know that there are many extracts, which cannot penetrate the skin and therefore cannot effectively moisturize the skin and definitely cannot stimulate collagen production.
While we appreciate the fact that this product is organic, and that the company provides a full list of ingredients, we feel that this product could be used as a moisturizer at best. Furthermore, there is no special attention paid to the under-eye area in the ingredients of this product. It is just a lotion made from extracts and oils. It is an expensive product – about $40 for .5 fl. oz – and is just not worth the money.
