Please refer to the Ratings section below for details of the moisturizing rating calculation.

Anti-wrinkle efficacy

According to CreamScan analysis, Olay Regenerist Whip Face Moisturizer Fragrance Free has a high anti-wrinkle rating of 6.0 out of 10. It contains one ingredient with proven anti-wrinkle efficacy: Niacinamide (est. ≈4.0%),
one of the most effective and well-researched anti-wrinkle ingredients.
Among others, Olay Regenerist Whip Face Moisturizer Fragrance Free also contains Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, an ingredient marketed as effective in reducing wrinkles. However, the studies supporting the anti-wrinkle claims of Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4 provide insufficient evidence of its efficacy according to CreamScan Research Evaluation Standards. Therefore, this ingredient does not contribute to the anti-wrinkle rating.

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

Antioxidant benefits

We estimate that Olay Regenerist Whip Face Moisturizer Fragrance Free is rich (> 3%) in antioxidants, specifically Niacinamide (est. ≈4.0%).

A key benefit of antioxidants is their ability to reduce oxidative stress caused by free radicals and therefore prevent accelerated skin aging. Studies also show that antioxidants can protect against environmental damage such as UV radiation and pollution, and help reduce inflammation and skin redness.

Skin soothing

Based on the ingredient list analysis, Olay Regenerist Whip Face Moisturizer Fragrance Free is rich (> 5%) in soothing ingredients, particularly Niacinamide (est. ≈4.0%) and Panthenol (est. ≈2.0%).

When applied to the skin, compounds of soothing ingredients, such as triglycerides, phospholipids, fatty acids, phenolic compounds, and antioxidants, work together to soothe the skin through various mechanisms: reducing inflammation, promoting wound healing, repairing the skin barrier, and providing antimicrobial and antioxidant activities.
