There are a plenty of products claiming they will take your wrinkles away, but how can you judge for any of them. You need to know what is it made of , how it works, how effective, how safe, and how people found it.

Today we will discuss every thing about Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti wrinkle Cream. ( No, I am not affiliate, I just searched it).


Active Ingredients :

Ensulizole .............................. 1%

Octinoxate .............................. 6%

Inactive Ingredients :
Water - C12 15 Alkyl Benzoate - Glycerin - Cetyl Alcohol - Cetearyl Alcohol - Triethanolamine - Retinol - Camellia Sinensis Extract - Titanium Dioxide - Panthenol - Tocopherol - Dimethicone - Disodium EDTA - Cetearyl Glucoside - Tocopheryl Acetate - Polysorbate 20 - Methylparaben - Isobutylparaben - Isopropylparaben - Butylparaben - Phenoxyethanol - Butylene Glycol - BHT - Carbomer

Active and inactive ingredients are terms used in the registeration process of a certain product, as we can see that the inactive ingredients include Glycerin, Dimethicone, Retinol (vitamin A), Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) extract, Tocopherol Acetate (vitamin E), Panthenol , Titanium Dioxide, all of them have effects on the skin.

The active ingredients Ensulizole and Octinoxate are primarily UVB protecting sunscreen agents (wavelengths of UV light in the range of 290-340 nanometers). UVA range is 320-400 nanometers and is protected by Titanium Dioxide. It has a Sun Protection Factor (SFP) of 15.


Retinoic acid is one of the best known anti-wrikle and rejuvenating agents, however its application often causes side effects which are sometimes severe, and after all it is a prescription drug. Retinol (vitamin A) is converted in the skin cells enzymatic action into Retinoic acid according to the equation :
Retinol <==> Retinaldehyde --> Retinoic acid

It seems that the manufacturers precisely adjusted both the concentration and delivery to the skin cells to a level that made all of people used the cream did not complain any known side effect of an overdose of vitamin A, and many of them praised some effects that are related to Retinoic acid.

Vitamin E (Tocopherol Acetate) :

Since the cream blocks the sun radiation that may form free radicals in the skin cells, hence inclusion of vitamin E is complementary to that effect as it scavenges formed free radicals and rescue the cells.

Other ingredients :

Many inert chemicals that admix and stabilize a mixture of oils and water in the form of a cream. Yet a special mention should be paid to Panthenol and Green Tea as they are friendly to the skin, and Dimethicone as it is a good moisturizer.
