Marketed toward men, 4VOO claims to be the best wrinkle solution combining pure botanical extracts, essential oils, and vitamins.
While it works to market diet pills toward the different sexes, skin changes between individuals, not along lines of sex or gender. It can be divided in multiple ways such as sensitive, normal, and hardy or oily vs dry, etc.
The only reason 4VOO gets away with this is because most wrinkle creams are marketed toward women, because they are the population generally interested in it.

4VOO ingredients include aqua (water), sodium acrylate/sodium acryloyldimethyl taurate copolymer, paraffinum liquidum, trideceth-6, nasturtium officinale extract (watercress), caprylic/capric triglyceride, petaerythrityl tetracaprylate/tetracaprate, glycerin, butylene glycol, carbomer, polysorbate 20, pamitoyl oligopeptide, palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, PPG-3 benzyl ether myristate, titanium dioxide, acrylates/c10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer, polymethylmethacrylate, trilaurin, diacetyl boldine, orbignya oleifera oil (babassu), aloe barbadensis (aloe vera), hydrolyzed silk, tocopherol, propylene glycol, algae, betula alba bark extract (birch), equisetum hiemale extract (horsetail), calendula officinalis extract (marigold), cymbopogon schoenanthus extract (lemongrass), prunus serotina bark extract (wild cherry), eugenia caryophyllus extract (clove), centaurea cyanus extract (cronflower), hypericum perforatum extract (st. john’s wort), tilia cordata extract (linden), chamomilla recutita extract (matricaria), anthemis nobilis extract (chamomile), glyceryl stearate, octyldodecanol, isopropyl palmitate, isopropyl myristate, peg-20 glyceryl stearate, ceteareth-12, cetyl palmitate, glyceryl cocoate, cetearyl alcohol, sorbitan stearate, ethylhexylglycerin, phenoxyethanol, fragrance.
These ingredients for the most part really have no application to wrinkle care, especially around the eyes. There are several irritants and chemicals that could actually hurt the eyes, but nothing to reduce wrinkles or really protect or renew the skin. There are a few peptides, but they fall too far down the list to be significant, as ingredients are listed in order of highest concentration.
Overall Impression of 4VOO:
Few companies have targeted the market of men looking for a wrinkle cure. This has fed into the idea that men’s skin is different from women’s skin. But in fact, men have sensitive or hardy skin, oily or dry skin, etc just like women. Men are more likely to have substantial hair around the face, but everybody has some amount of hair. It is not likely to do anything for your skin, let alone your wrinkles, and we would not advise using it.
