Anti aging wrinkle cream can contain many different ingredients with varying degrees of effectiveness. In addition to the presence of alpha and beta hydroxyl, several other compounds are found in anti aging wrinkle cream. They include:
Retinol/Vitamin A: This is one of the best ingredients to fight wrinkles. It works best at prescription strength and smoothes out wrinkles and fine lines. However, it can severely irritate the skin and should be worn in conjunction with sunscreen.
Vitamin C Ester: This is an anti-inflammatory antioxidant, which stimulates cells to produce collagen in the skin. The collagen helps to smooth out lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C is best for sun-damaged skin that has lost its firmness.
