"Exposure to UVA can intensify signs of ageing over time, meaning the serum can help you to achieve a more youthful illusion for longer."
WIMJ summary

This product contains ferulic acid, retinyl palmitate. These ingredients might be able to help reduce and prevent fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin elasticity and firmness, but there is not enough evidence that it actually works. The biggest anti-aging effect in this product comes from sun protection. Sun damage is the main factor causing early signs of skin aging. We, however, do not recommend using this product as a sunscreen because the protection it offers is not strong enough).
