What does the product description say?
"Deeply penetrating, the solution promotes smoother, supple-looking skin and helps to improve elasticity and the natural moisture barrier while defending against external aggressors."
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 squalene might be able to help neutralize free radicals in skin and help it fight off some of the sun damage.

"Deeply penetrating, the solution promotes smoother, supple-looking skin and helps to improve elasticity and the natural moisture barrier while defending against external aggressors."
WIMJ summary

This product can help soften the skin and reduce its moisture loss with emollients and occlusives: caprylic/capric triglyceride, helianthus annuus seed 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).
