Answer: This might sound like another urban legend, but studies of Boots #7 have actually been published in the always reliable British Journal of Dermatology. Beautifully designed research actually looked at changes both in the cellular level and those visable in the mirror and came up with desirable results.
Here’s how it worked. In the lab, this study looked at fibrillin deposits in the cells as a “marker” for cellular aging. Fibrillin is associated with new collagen growth anad as we grow older, fibrillin levels naturally decline. After six months of using Boots #7, researchers found increased levels of fibrillin right where you would want them to be. Even better, the study also found that in real time about 40% of the women saw a decline in wrinkles, especially around the eyes.
Boots #7 has about 6% active ingredients of pentapeptides, antioxidants and retinyl palmitate. This mixture is not as powerful as the gold- standard Retin A, but it is much less expensive and less irritating anti-aging option.
