What is the difference between a moisturizer and an anti-wrinkle cream?

Is a moisturizer the same as an anti-wrinkle cream?
What is the difference?

Are our creams for men moisturizing, anti-aging, anti-wrinkle..., or “Anti-Stress” as we say in Homo Naturals?

In principle, a moisturizer is not the same as an anti-wrinkle cream.

As a general rule, we could say that the function of a moisturizing cream is to prevent wrinkles from appearing and that the function of a wrinkle cream is to treat wrinkles that have already appeared.

In other words, the “anti-wrinkle” cream is usually considered as something more powerful.

In any case, we callAnti-Stress Gel / Cream” to our step number 4 our facial treatment for men.

We do not like to classify our Anti-Stress Gel or Cream in the category of only “moisturizing” or in the category of only “anti-wrinkle”, since it is a product (both in format Gel as in format Crema) what It fulfills both functions at the same time: prevent and treat.
