Anti-wrinkle efficacy

According to CreamScan analysis, Clinique Moisture Surge Pop Triple Lip Balm has a zero anti-wrinkle rating.

It contains some ingredients marketed as effective in reducing wrinkles, specifically Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Extract, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, and Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1. However, the studies supporting the anti-wrinkle claims of these ingredients provide insufficient evidence of efficacy according to CreamScan Research Evaluation Standards. Therefore, these ingredients do not generate the anti-wrinkle rating.

Please refer to the Ratings section below for details of the anti-wrinkle rating calculation.
