Scientists at Kyoto University in Japan think these antibodies can help neutralize viruses, chemicals, bacteria and pollen that cause fine lines and wrinkles.
And beauty company Ubuna has processed the antibodies from unfertilized ostrich yolks into a line of moisturizers – due to be released later this month.
Ubuna’s Thomas Winarick claimed the drinks could help reduce and prevent long-term aging. But the dream of the youth does not come cheap. Fans of the eggy cream will have to pay £ 180 for a 50ml jar.
But the range has already proven to be so popular that there is already a waiting list of 5,000 women in the UK desperate for the Ubuna creams.

Mr. Winarick said that although research on ostrich antibodies has been used in healthcare before, including to protect against viruses such as dengue and Covid-19, this is the first time they have been used for beauty products and anti-aging.
He said: “The ostrich has a strong immune system that makes them very resistant to infections.

Customer Sarah Jeck, 51, from London, said: ‘I have tried many anti-aging creams but never had such results. I look five years younger and my fine lines and wrinkles have been significantly reduced. It also makes my hands soft. ‘
While Jayne Fox, 45, of Burgess Hill, said her skin felt ‘dewy’ and younger after using the range.
