Date fruit extract, Phoenix Dactylifera in particular, is an emollient antioxidant with skin smoothing properties.
Early research suggests that applying a cream containing 5% date palm seed extract around the eyes for 5 weeks reduces the depth and improves the appearance of wrinkles. However, there is insufficient evidence to support this claim.

Date seeds in cosmetics & skincare
Date seed oil is suitable for use in soap and cosmetics. Date palm seeds contain 0.56–5.4% lauric acid. They can also be processed chemically as a source of oxalic acid.

Experimental studies have shown that feeding mice with the aqueous extract of date pits exhibit anti-genotoxic and reduce DNA damage induced by N-Nitroso-N-methylurea. While this is interesting and dates are basically a nutritional superfood, studies showing its internal effects – while pretty amazing – have no relation to its use when applied topically.
