What does the product description say?
"Meanwhile, vitamin A (retinyl palmitate) improves the appearance of sun damage and offers free radical and UV protection to prolong lips’ youthful appearance, while vitamin E soothes and protects further."
WIMJ summary

This product contains retinyl palmitate. This ingredient 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.

What does the product description say?
"Shea Butter helps to nourish, repair and protect dry and chapped lips."
WIMJ summary

This product can help soften the skin and reduce its moisture loss with emollients and occlusives: butyrospermum parkii butter, persea gratissima oil.

Keep in mind that this product does not contain effective ingredients to attract water to the upper layer of the skin. This is why an additional product with humectants like glycerin or hyaluronic acid can be helpful (apply it before this product for the best results).
