Baba de Caracol PORTUGAL 55gr/1.8oz, ANTI WRINKLE CREAM

I'm guessing that "wrinkle cream" actually is supposed to remove wrinkles rather than promote them, but there are lots of them available on eBay. One in particular is made by Baba de Caracol, which won't necessarily retard the aging process, but has a bunch of interesting ingredients in it, like something called allantoin, a naturally occurring ingredient that comes from snails.

This is new to me. Supposely, this is intended to help with the regeneration process, as it is what allows snails to regenerate their shells. Scientific study has yet to show if allantoin will work as advertised, but at least it's no worse than what we used to use...nightshade...mercury...
