Developed to assist users with fine lines and wrinkles, Boswellia wrinkle cream was created by Youthful Living Essential Oils. It claims to “nourish skin for a smoother, more youthful appearance”, a common and generalized promise made by most wrinkle cream manufacturers. It also claims to support the synthesis of collagen, which is essential in a successful wrinkle cream. Ingredients include geranium, myrth, sandalwood, ylang ylang, frankincense, and wolfberry oil for collagen.
As with many of its competitors, Boswellia can be easily found and purchased on the internet. It retails on the manufacturer’s website for $85.20/2 oz bottle. But most products can be found at cheaper prices on ebay. It contains boswellia and several other ingredients known for their anti inflammatory properties. As a whole, boswellia wrinkle cream contains only all natural ingredients, and comes in an easy to apply cream form that does not seem to leave an oily or greasy residue.
While Boswellia wrinkle cream promises to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and increase the body’s production of collagen, there is no way for it to actually deliver on these promises. They claim to use geranium, myrth, sandalwood, and ylang ylang to smooth the skin, which may very well be. But then they claim to use frankincense and wolfberry to promote synthesis of collagen, that is false. Frankincense has been used in the past to promote healthy skin, and wolfberry has been shown to have antioxidant qualities. But neither of those have ever shown any connection to the synthesis of collagen, nor has any connection ever been suggested by anyone else but the makers of Boswellia Wrinkle Cream. There are no clinical trials to back up Boswellia’s claims, nor are there any customer testimonials posted on their website or any other website for that matter. They also offer no money back or satisfaction guarantee.
Boswellia Wrinkle Cream may produce positive effects in regard to wrinkles and fine lines. Miracles happen. But with the ingredient list and the information provided on their website, there is no reason to think that miracle will actually happen, at least not today.
