Keep in mind that there’s no guarantee that any anti-aging skin care creams/serums/lotions will live up to all of its claims or even contain its advertised ingredients. They are considered cosmetics, so the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates them in a different and more lenient manner than it does drugs. This means that products don’t need to undergo the same rigorous testing for safety and effectiveness before going to market that prescription drugs do.
