Anti-wrinkle efficacy

According to CreamScan analysis, The INKEY List Hemp Oil Moisturizer has a zero anti-wrinkle rating.

It contains Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, an ingredient marketed as effective in reducing wrinkles. However, the studies supporting the anti-wrinkle claims of Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract provide insufficient evidence of its efficacy according to CreamScan Research Evaluation Standards. Therefore, this ingredient does not generate the anti-wrinkle rating.
