What does the product description say?
"Not only is alcohol known to cause skin dehydration, but there are many studies that show it also prohibits the biosynthesis of collagen in fibroblasts, which means in plain English, that it accelerates skin aging!"
WIMJ summary for anti-aging

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.

"Has powerful moisturising and antibacterial properties."
WIMJ summary for moisturizing

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: lactobacillus ferment, saccharide isomerate.

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: squalane.

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: panthenol
