The Anti-Wrinkle Pill: Uncrumpling From the Inside

Above are some preliminary results from testing Unilever’s “anti-wrinkle pill,” a three-a-day capsule that contains soya isoflavones, omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, vitamins E and C, and lycopene. “Independent researchers” are apparently giving it “a guarded welcome,” and the best results show a 30% reduction in deep wrinkles, while the average face gets a 10% reduction.

The pills (currently nameless) will be available at 44 spas in Canada, Spain, and the U.K. starting next month, although the above-mentioned independent researchers are keeping their wrinkled eyebrows raised until “a peer-reviewed journal has published the results in full.”

What next, Emily Caporello, Vain Scientist?
