What does the product description say?
"Improved elasticity means stronger skin cells, less wrinkles, and firmer looking skin !"
WIMJ summary

This product does not contain ingredients that are able to reduce fine lines and wrinkles or help with skin elasticity, but it can improve the look of the skin temporarily through moisturization. Well-moisturized skin might also be able to repair the sun damage better.

This ingredient camellia japonica flower extract might be able to help neutralize free radicals in skin and help it fight off some of the sun damage.

What does the product description say?
"Ingredients including four kinds of flower extracts (apricot flower, lotus flower, chrysanthemum flower, and camellia flower) provide moisture and nourishment."
WIMJ summary

This product can help improve hydration of the skin with the two types of ingredients.

The first type is called “humectants”:
these ingredients help attract water. When humectants are on the surface of the skin, they “pull in” the moisture from the outside environment, or from within deeper layers of the skin. The following ingredients in this product do the job: betaine, althaea rosea root extract.

This product also contains ingredients called “occlusives”. They help reduce the speed with which our skin loses moisture to the outside environment. These ingredients also help soften the upper layer of the skin, so it feels less tight and nicer to the touch. The following ingredients in this product do the job: dimethicone, caprylyl glycol.

WIMJ summary
