A lot of people say that centrophenoxine removes lipofuscin from skin and 
nerve cells due to its antioxidant properties. However, I've see two 
studies, one in primate and one in rodent retinal neuronal (I think) 
cells showing no effect on lipofuscin content whatsoever. Still, people 
claim that lipofuscin removal occurs with centrophenoxine. Maybe other 
studies suggest it does. I realize I'm off topic, by the way :->
