The Bottom Line
The main ingredient, Embelica, is derived from a fruit which is supposed to reduce free radical damage and help even out skin tone. The Nutrius website provides a lot of information about how Embelica works, but does not provide access to clinical studies which could demonstrate the product’s effectiveness. Though it does have some ingredients that have shown positive effects at reducing wrinkles, it does not have the most effective ingredients on the market.
