Yuh-oh--makeup not a drug
Jennifer Corbett Dooren and Emily Glazer, WSJ. Sept 12, 2012, says Lancome (L’Oreal) overstepped when it said several anti-aging creams boost the activity of genes and stimulate the production of youth proteins.
If they affect how the body works, not how it looks—that would make them drugs, subject to much testing, the FDA grumped.
Better than botox, cell regenerating—watch out.
I am sticking with Fountain of Youth Cola.
But this stuff costs a ton and is probably basically cold cream.
What is a youth protein anyhow?
