Ability of Amatokin and Stem-Cell Science to Deliver Wrinkle-Free Skin Remains Mostly Rumor – But a Very Persistent One

According to researchers who have seen the original in vitro data, the results were stunning. If Amatokin works as advertised it will be the first product to harness the potential of your own stem cells to reduce serious wrinkles. Finally, a real, non-invasive breakthrough in skin care that doesn’t involve needles, injections, peels or a visit to the doctor’s office. Amatokin could really be “a miracle in a bottle.”
