The oral pill which contains compounds and vitamins can reduce the depth of crow’s feet wrinkles on faces by 10 per cent. The tests were held at an independent clinic in Germany. It also showed that this supplement could stimulate the production of collagen which has the ability to prevent wrinkles from forming. The ingredients present in the pill offers an alternative to the more invasive methods such as Botox or even the list of creams on which people spend so much of money.

The study was published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science.
