What should you look for in antiaging facial cream? Do they really work? What are the safest ingredients? Which ones are most effective? Let’s try to answer some of those questions.
antiaging facial cream ingredients:
An antiaging facial cream should have the mildest, safest and most effective ingredients. They should have clinical trials and research to support their claims of effectiveness. Safe ingredients are plant derivatives, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Fragrances, chemical preservatives, alcohols and petroleum based products should be avoided.
A new compound for wrinkle creams is extracted from sheep’s wool. Most cosmetic compounds are derived from hooves, horns and cowhide. Which is softer, wool or leather? If your skin looks like leather, then you’ve got a problem. So, it just makes sense that the sheep’s wool extract would be more effective than the cow hide derivative.
The new compound is so similar to a protein found naturally in “people skin” that your body can’t tell the difference, so it soaks it up and uses it to rebuild skin cells and repair damage done by the sun. It is called functional keratin and it is only found in the best products.
Wakame or phytessence wakame:
Another thing that you should look for in an antiaging facial cream is an ingredient called wakame or phytessence wakame. It is an antioxidant derived from Japanese sea algae. Research has shown that it protects the skin against damage from UV rays, but without the possibly harmful effects of SPF creams. It also protects against environmental pollutants, such as cigarette smoke. If you work in a bar, it’s probably a good choice.
The other thing that wakame does is inhibit the activity of an enzyme known as hyaluronidase, which breaks down the skin’s vital protein hyaluronic acid. It is know that levels of hyaluronic acid drop as a person ages. So, an antiaging facial cream might list hyaluronic acid on its label.
The problem is that artificial replacement is never as good as protection and increasing production. So, most of them are ineffective. This phytessence wakame prevents natural stores of hyaluronic acid from being depleted. The protein binds collagen and elastin fibers together, kind of like glue, so when it is lost, dark circles appear and elasticity is reduced. Skin cells can not be replaced efficiently and wrinkles appear.
You will not find wakame in department stores. Maybe, if you live in Japan, but not in the United States. The ones that have it are only sold directly from the manufacturer. It’s too expensive for retailers, because they can’t mark it up and still have an affordable product.
most effective antiaging facial cream :
Which antiaging facial cream is the most effective? First, let’s look at ingredients that are not effective. Collagen and most forms of keratin are not effective. A combination of COQ10 and vitamin E is very effective at destroying free radicals and undoing damage done by the sun, but most companies that use them don’t have the right concentration or the right form.
The most effective antiaging facial cream will be one that contains the effective ingredients mentioned here at a high concentration. At least 50% of the content should be “active” ingredients.
