Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I need an anti-aging skincare product?  I’m only 20/30/40.
A: Anti-Aging skincare isn’t just for when you see signs of aging; it’s for keeping your skin healthy so you don’t see signs of aging. Moisture, Vitamins, Anti-Oxidants – these all keep your skin healthy and happy, so you don’t see signs of aging or irritation and other skin issues. eb5’s products also include gentle AHAs and peptide complexes to promote cell growth and regeneration, and to support collagen and elastin production – both of which are helpful at any age.

Q: Is this the same eb5 I have known for decades?
A: Absolutely. eb5 has been around since the fifties. Our headquarters used to be located in Portland, but we packed our bags and moved out East to Charlotte, North Carolina, where we take the same care with our product and our customers as we always have. If you ever have questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out! Back to Top

Q: What is the difference between the Classic Cream and the 5-in-1 Intense Moisture Anti-Aging Cream?
A: All of the main ingredients are the same as when Pharmacist Heldfond sold this cream out of his drugstore in Portland. The only difference between the two creams is the preservative. We upgraded the preservatives from synthetic parabens to a paraben-free preservative blend. This change has not affected our cream at all, but if you would like to compare for yourself, try each! We guarantee all our products, so if you find our new cream unsatisfactory, send it back for a refund within 60 days of purchase. Back to Top

Q: What product do you recommend I start with?
A: Our 3 Step System is a perfect product for any new customer to try. Cleanse your skin with our gentle, soap-free AHA Cleansing Lotion; Tone your skin with our alcohol-free, non-irritating Toner; and treat your skin with the 5-in-1 Intense Moisture Anti-Aging Cream. Back to Top

A: Absolutely. We are so confident you will love eb5 products that we offer a full 60 day money back guarantee on all our products. eb5 cannot guarantee the quality of products sold by non-authorized retailers and from Internet sites not legitimately representing eb5.

A: We love animals! We have never tested on them and never will. Back to Top

Q: Why are you called eb5? What does eb5 mean?
A: When eb5 was originally developed, it was used as a base cream for medicinal use. The base cream became so popular, people asked for it alone, without medication. Pharmacist Heldfond improved the formula and added two of the best ingredients for skin: Vitamin E and Vitamin B5, and called it eb5. You’ll find those two simple ingredients in each and every eb5 product. Back to Top

Q: Does your Facial Cream contain an SPF?
A: Our eb5 SPF 15 Ultra Light Face Cream boasts broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection in a daily moisturizer that keeps your skin hydrated and protected from the sun's harmful rays. Our Intense Moisture Anti Aging Face Cream and Classic Face Cream formulas do not contain SPF. Back to Top
