With the right product and the right ingredients it is definity possible to change the appearance of cellulite or the fat diformation under the skin.
With so many brands of cellulite creams on the market today, narrowing down the best cellulite creams can feel like an impossible task. Making the process even more difficult is the fact that many of the cellulite cream products are not as effective as the manufacturer claims them to be.
On the other hand, there are several all-natural and high-quality cellulite creams available. Rather than guessing, or having you go through an expensive and time-consuming trial and error process, we decided to review and identify what we think are the very best cellulite creams available today.
After considering a number of factors, including ingredients, price, manufacturer information, testing policies, and various user reviews, we then ranked the following top five best cellulite creams. Below you will find the top 5 products of 2020.

Crafted with the intent of lessening the appearance of cellulite and moisturizing the skin, 'beauxi®' combines the natural, high-quality active ingredients chenopodium quinoa seed extract, squalane, and hyaluronic acid with purified water to create the unique Cellulite Treatment Cream.
Unlike other cosmetic creams reviewed, 'beauxi®' Cellulite Treatment is the only product that uses the combination of chenopodium quinoa extract and squalane. Chenopodium quinoa extract is rich in the B vitamins, especially vitamin B12. While not widely known by name, squalane, or squalane oil, is a plant-based oil most often compared in similarity to coconut oil. In addition to being a plant-based oil, squalane is also naturally produced and found in the human body.
'beauxi®' Cellulite Treatment manufacturer has over 25 years of internationally recognized research, development, and production of technologically advanced skincare products.
In addition to being produced by an industry leader, our reviewers appreciate that 'beauxi®' Cellulite Treatment contains natural ingredients and is produced in an FDA registered and cGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practice) compliant facility.
Available in a 4 ounce pump for $35 USD, 'beauxi®'s' Cellulite cream works out to be $8.75 per ounce and can be purchased HERE. While this product is the most expensive of the cellulite creams we reviewed, our reviewers considered this product to be the best cellulite cream in terms of quality, natural ingredients, and the manufacturer’s staying power as an established industry leader centered around the simple belief that safe and natural products simulate and accelerate the skin’s natural healing processes.
Billing itself as the “Original Cellulite Gel Cream”, Body Merry’s Cellulite Gel-Cream cellulite remover boasts a unique, custom blend of natural ingredients.
Containing three types of seaweed, MSM & organic aloe, organic coconut oil and cocoa butter, the product is billed as all natural. Users have reported a tingling sensation during use; our research indicates this sensation to be a result of menthol and cayenne, which are both ingredients found in this product. With a hybrid texture of a gel and a cream, Body Merry’s product has been described as having a thick consistency that spreads more like an oil than a cream. The manufacturer suggests several ways to apply the gel cream, including a massager, brushes, wraps, or a mitt.
We appreciate Body Merry’s commitment to extensive, animal-free testing to ensure the product is safe and does not irritate hair and skin; The company stresses its commitment to cruelty free testing, highlighting that they are Leaping Bunny certified (the Leaping Bunny Program is the gold-standard in animal and cruelty-free certification for personal care products). The company also provides a 90-day money-back “happiness guarantee”.
Body Merry Cellulite Defense Cream does contain MSM, or Methylsulfonylmethane, which is a chemical found in animals, humans and many plants. MSM can also be produced in a lab setting and is often combined with other supplements that are taken by mouth or applied to skin for a variety of reasons, including arthritis, muscle cramps, wrinkles, or wound healing.
Available in a 4 ounce jar for $20.99, Body Merry’s Cellulite Defense Cream, which works out to be $5.25 per ounce – ranking it in the second most expensive cellulite creams reviewed.
InstaNatural’s Cellulite Cream contains a blend of retinol, caffeine, vitamin e. The product also contains what manufacturer refers to as a “nourishing ReguSlim blend” formulated to help diminish cellulite. According to the manufacturer’s website, this “Reguslim” formula is a 3% blend of guarana seed extract and caffeine. Our research into guarana seeds indicate that they contain caffeine and theobromine, a chemical that is similar to caffeine.
This cellulite cream also contains jojoba seed oil, which is extracted from a shrub native to southern Arizona and southern California. While referred to as an oil, jojoba oil is really a liquid form of plant wax commonly used as a moisturizer for skin. Unlike some of the other creams featured in this review, InstaNatural’s Cellulite Cream requires no wrap, mitts, or brushes and is recommended to be applied twice a day (morning and night).
The company indicates that the jojoba oil found in this product helps to “reverse the appearance of cellulite on the skin and defend against the formation of more cellulite on the legs, arms, or tummy areas”. Our findings indicate that Jojoba oil is used primarily as a skin moisturizer and not as a weight loss product, which caused us to question the company’s claim that this oil “defends against the formation of more cellulite on the legs, arms, or tummy areas”.
While the product’s manufacturer’s website promises that the product contains no parabens, sulfates, mineral oils, formaldehyde releasers, MCI/MI or synthetic dyes, the product does have an extensive ingredient list.
Available in a 4-ounce jar for $15.17 InstaNatural’s Cellulite Cream works out to $3.82 per ounce – one of the more affordable creams in this review.
New York Biology’s Anti Cellulite Treatment Massage Oil contains a number of all natural ingredients, including grape seed oil, eucalyptus, citrus lemon and grapefruit. According to the company, this product also contains a proprietary formula known as “d-limonene”.
The manufacturer of this product indicates that d-limonene is found in grapefruit and lemon and is considered to be an effective ingredient. However, d-limonene is actually the oil found in the peels of citrus fruit and is commonly used as a flavoring in some medicines and fragrance in perfumes, lotions, and personal care products.
We appreciate that New York Biology’s Anti Cellulite Treatment Massage Oil is produced in made in a FDA-approved cGMP facility and is alcohol-free, contains no parabens or sulfates. We also appreciate that this product is cruelty free and certified by the Leaping Bunny program.
Available in an 8 ounce bottle for $14.95, New York Biology’s Anti Cellulite Treatment Massage Oil works out to be $1.86 per ounce – and is the least expensive, and ranked fourth out of the five products in this review.
Majestic Pure™ Cosmeceuticals Hot Cream Cellulite and Muscle Cream contains 87% organic ingredients and can be used as both a muscle treatment and a cellulite cream.
With ingredients such as menthol, capsicum, camphor oil, black pepper, peppermint, pine, chamomile, eucalyptus, and cinnamon oil, this product appears to be primarily focused on soothing and relaxing tight or tired muscles.
However, the manufacturer advertises that this product can also be used as an anti-cellulite cream, indicating that it contains additional ingredients such as juniper, grapefruit, and rosemary.
The product is 87% organic, which means it is really not an organic product. The reviewers were also concerned with the extensive safety warning included on sites selling the product, which reads:
SAFETY WARNING: External Use Only; Keep out of the reach of children and pets; POSSIBLE SKIN SENSITIVITY: Avoid contact with eyes and mucus membranes including ears, nose, mouth, face, genital, urethral, anus and other sensitive areas.; Use a little amount first on a small area to test; Discontinue use if uncomfortable or if irritation occurs; Continue if you are comfortable to proceed; Do not use on the spots with injury, burns, eczema, or dermatitis; Wash your hands after application
Reviewers acknowledge that the warning most likely stems from the capsicum, camphor oil, and menthol contained in the product; however, the level of detail and number of potential uncomfortable interactions with the product gave the reviewers cause for concern.
We like that the product is made in the USA and that the company is dedicated cruelty free and does not test on animals, but we found ourselves questioning the number of different ingredients and multiple stated uses of this product.
Available in a 9 ounce bottle for $28.50, Majestic Pure Cosmeceuticals Hot Cream Cellulite and Muscle Cream works out to be $3.17 per ounce, and is lowest rated product in our review.
