There is no single ‘best’ ingredient for the skin but a wealth of different ones, and what makes them work is the formulation as a whole.
Plant Stem Cells
Harnessing the regenerative power of plant stem cells has enhanced the effectiveness of skincare particularly in delaying biological aging and extending the life span of the skin's stem cells.
Technology has driven some of the greatest advances in how we can treat and care for the skin. Its continuing evolution has improved penetration techniques, introduced new ingredients and categories of skincare.
- Synergistic Complexes (i.e. Neotec A15®)
- Peptides (i.e. Matryxl 3000®)
The distinctive properties of plants can be used to create a specific skincare, i.e. the lifting and firming Kigelia Africana is ideal for the neck and Japanese Bloodgrass is excellent for timed hydration.
Paracress & Garden Cress
These dynamic plant ingredients have impressive skin enhancing properties; Paracress helps to improve tone and appearance whereas Garden Cress is used to combat pigmentation.
Oxidation is a process that damages skin cells, so including antioxidants in your skincare helps to combat the aging effects of environmental stress and defend against the sun.
For a skincare product to deliver the results you want, its ingredients need to be carried deeper and more effectively into the skin. Without enhanced absorption even the highest quality ingredient will sit on the surface layers.
- Time-release techniques help the product work longer
- Low weight Hyaluronic Acid is an excellent deeper penetrating carrier
- Avoid harsh techniques to protect the skin's barrier function
