Latest skin care ingredients coming on the market and becoming very popular.
The skin care industry around the world continues to grow and with it so do the new ingredients being used. Here are some ingredients to keep in mind when purchasing your skin care products.
Few examples of the latest skin care ingredients
Yuzu is a Japanese citrus fruit the size of a golf ball. It has a sour taste and is commonly known as a Japanese grapefruit. It is now gaining popularity as a good source of antioxidants that can replenish dead skin cells. It has a very high concentration of vitamin C. The citrus extract helps to brighten your skin and protects the skin from signs of aging.
BRICH JUICE / WATER
Birch sap/water is the sap directly tapped from the birch tree. The liquid is tapped from the tree trunks in early spring. For trees, sap serves as the equivalent to our venous system, delivering vital nutrients from the root to the branch. Birch water is packed with skin care essentials such as; vitamins, antioxidants and amino acids.
Among the latest skin care ingredients, Birch juice is being called the next coconut water. It is increasingly been replacing water in beauty products. Birch juice helps the skin retain moisture, and maintain a healthy hydro- lipid (water and oil) balance.
Royal Honey is a honey bee secretion used in the nutrition of larvae. It differs from regular honey because it goes through a 60 day fermentation process after being secreted by worker bees. Honey is a natural humectant (a substance used to reduce the loss of moisture) but Royal Honey is a bit of an upgrade.
Royal Honey has less water filler and more vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Royal Honey gives your skin an extra dose of nourishment and hydration.
Bamboo is a giant woody grass that grows mainly in the tropics. It has a hollow stem and is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. Bamboo has been known for its medicinal properties to heal skin for years. Bamboo not only has a natural way of mimicking the skin’s natural moisture, but also acts as a humectant by drawing moisture to the skin and plumping it.
Bamboo will add extra moisture to the skin, it has an anti-irritating (soothing) effect on the skin, and the antioxidants in bamboo may also minimise wrinkles and therefore have an anti-aging effect on the skin.
Chia is a flowering plant in the mint family. Chia has been known as a nutritional source when eaten, for some time now. But, now Chia is being used in serums and skin creams. It is hydrating and keeps the skin looking plump and refreshed.
Niacinamide is a component of vitamin B3. It has been shown to increase ceramide and fatty acid levels in the skin. It can help prevent water loss in the skin and stimulate micro circulation in the dermis. It is increasingly gaining a reputation for being able to lighten discoloration in the skin and reduce acne.
Copper peptides help firm skin and prevent collagen loss. Copper also promotes wound healing and it helps with tissue repair. Copper PCA boosts the copper levels in the skin to help combat inflammation in the skin.
Pitera is a natural by-product of yeast fermentation. It is derived from the yeast that is created during the fermentation process of sake. It is a rich liquid, containing amino acids, minerals, vitamins and organic acids. It was first discovered after researchers noticed the Japanese sake producers’ hands were abnormally soft.
Pitera refines texture, decreases wrinkles and evens out skin tone for a brighter-looking complexion.
