What does the product description say?
"It gets top marks for preventing free radical damage too, which degrades collagen and causes all sorts of unwanted side effects such as fine lines."
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 - butyrospermum parkii butter - could be helpful for preventing or repairing signs of aging in theory, but there is no evidence that it actually works.

This ingredient rubus idaeus seed oil 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?
"Cupuaçu butter Grown in the tropical rainforests of the Amazon, in some parts of the world this velvety butter from the Cupuaçu tree is used to make ice cream, but here we use it to keep skin hydrated and improve the resilience of your skin barrier so it can take whatever life throws at it."
WIMJ summary

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

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).
