Time in a Bottle Age-Defying Serum

Nowadays, you really can save time in a bottle (h/t Jim Croce). Or at least that’s what countless anti-aging products seem to promise these days.

time in a bottle“(D)efy the appearance of all major signs of aging,” claims Time in a Bottle Age-Defying Serum, on the product’s website, “and help your skin appear: radiant, poreless, even, wrinkle-free, smooth, and firm.”

Sounds like some healthy-looking skin. But before you choose to turn back the biological clock with Time in a Bottle know that an advertising self-regulatory group recently recommended that the product discontinue such Fountain of Youth claims.

The National Advertising Review Board (NARB), while determining that the study behind the claims was “reliable,” still requested that Philosophy, the beauty brand behind Time in a Bottle, delete the word “all” in the aforementioned quote and stop claiming that its product makes skin appear radiant, poreless, even, wrinkle-free, smooth and firm.

Among other things, NARB also recommended that Philosophy discontinue the claim that in clinical testing 95 percent of women ages 25 to 55 “showed significant reduction in visible signs of aging after 8 weeks.” As of this writing, though, the claim still appears online.

Philosophy had said that it would take NARB’s recommendations into consideration in future advertising. Maybe they’re still mulling it over.
