Increasing breast size is an issue that has been on women’s minds for centuries. From the early implant attempts in the 1800s to the modern breast implants today, breast augmentation has always been an invasive plastic surgery procedure that includes incisions, placing breast implants, healing and recovery time. So when we hear about a natural breast enhancement product that claims to increase the bust size without the commitment required for surgery, it’s easy to become intrigued.
Earlier this year Boob Job®, a topical cream produced by the British beauty product manufacturer Rodail, hit the European market as a breast augmentation in a bottle. The company claims that by rubbing the cream on the breast and decollete areas the breasts will increase up to a half cup size, tightening and firming the breast tissue. How? It claims to work with your fat cells, blocking them as they move throughout the body after eating to stay in the areas the cream has been applied, namely the breasts.
With reported celebrity clients like Victoria Beckham and Scarlett Johansson it’s easy to see why the product hit the market with a splash. But does it really work?
Non-surgical breast enhancement products have been on the market for years in the forms of creams and pills. However, despite the hundreds of different natural breast enhancement products on the market, both the FDA and the Better Business Bureau have yet to find evidence of these products actually producing results. In some instances these products claims have been found to be defrauding customers. In 2003, the Federal Trade Commission filed a lawsuit against the makers and marketers of Bloussant for false and unsubstantial claim. The old adage, “If it looks too good to be true, it probably is” still applies to these products today.
Despite the numerous natural breast enhancement products on the market, breast augmentation surgery is the only proven method for breast enlargement.
