About It Works! Skinny Wraps

It Works! Skinny Wrap the next time you need to fit into a little black dress or expose your arms in a sleeveless top for a dramatically firmer, smoother, and more contoured appearance. It is effective on specific areas below the neck that require tightening and toning, such as the stomach, upper arms, thighs, sides, and back, to help your clothes fit better and increase your confidence.

How It Works

It Works! Skinny Wrap are designed to firm and tone excess body fat by compressing the skin and applying a mixture of ingredients formulated to reduce cellulite and fat lines. The ingredients in the wraps will work for at least 72 hours after applying the wraps.

It’s advisable to leave It Works wraps for around 45 minutes, allowing you to know your skin’s sensitivity to the ingredients present. While some prefer leaving the wraps overnight only to remove them in the morning.

Active Ingredients in It Works! Skinny Wrap

Research on Topical Skin Toning Ingredients

Study design

The current trial, No 12F-0201, was a randomized, parallel-group, double-blind, placebo-controlled investigation, with one group receiving the active gel and the other receiving a placebo gel. Neither the participants nor the evaluators were aware of the type of the product being used (active or placebo). Subjects were told to apply the gel (active or placebo) to clean and dry skin on their hips, stomach, buttocks, and thighs, and to gently massage with the palm only until complete skin penetration. For a total of 84 consecutive days (12 weeks), the process was done twice a day (morning and evening).

Results of Topical Application of Caprylic / Capric Triglycerides

At the conclusion of the study it was found that the topical gel containing a blend of capric triglyrcerides and other ingredients exhibited tighter skin tone when compared to the placebo. Additionally, a greater proportion of participants exhibited reduction in cellulite compared to the placebo  (1).  The topical gel was better performing than placebo at reducing the circumference of the abdomen and thigh areas (Table 4).
