It contains some ingredients marketed as effective in reducing wrinkles, specifically Caffeine, Calcium PCA, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7. 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.
