Effective Against Wrinkles

Fullerene is effective against wrinkles

Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology

To experimentally prove the effectiveness of fullerene/squalane, an 8-week double-blind clinical test was conducted on 23 female volunteers aged between 30 and 40 years according to the Japanese guidelines for the evaluation of antiwrinkle creams. A test cream sample containing approximately 2 ppm fullerene in squalane was prepared. The percentage wrinkled area and average wrinkle depth were measured by visual analysis. We found that the percentage wrinkled area was significantly reduced in the fullerene/squalene cream-treated area compared to the placebo-treated area.
