Dermatologist-tested Clinically tested for skin irritancy and allergy Non-comedogenic Suitable for sensitive skin Fragrance-free Oil-free. The complex features encapsulated resveratrol, dual-benefit vitamin B3 and an age-defying peptide. Encapsulated resveratrol Resveratrol is an age-fighting sensation with multiple benefits: 1.
It provides antioxidant benefits in three ways for powerful protection against free radicals on skin. It helps promote more even skin tone. Resveratrol is a compound in red grapes and red wine that protects against environmental stressors. Our complex features a purified form extracted from the highest concentration found in nature: Japanese knotweed Resveratrol is encapsulated — merged within layers of lipids and water.
Each layer slowly melts away when applied to skin to release this highly active ingredient. Its official functions include being a humectant helps skin to attract water , emollient makes skin feel smooth and nice and skin conditioner a catchall phrase for saying it does something good for the skin. A research paper on the potential of uses of algae in cosmetics summarizes that algae are rich sources of biologically active metabolites including antioxidants, anti-inflammatory agents, alginates, polysaccharides, and carotenoids.
Currently, algae extracts are mostly used as moisturizing and thickening agents, but algae also have great potential to combat skin aging , pigmentation as well as working as an antimicrobial. We have also browsed through Prospector to see what manufacturers say about their algae. These were just three random examples from three manufacturers all called Algae extract even though they all come from different algae with different claims. Anyhow, the point is this; there are tons of different types of Algae Extracts out there.
Unless the brand tells you what they use, it's impossible to know for sure. The most probable scenario for the Alge Extract is that it works as a moisturizer and emollient and it might have some additional anti-aging properties.
We don't have description for this ingredient yet. Its main job in skincare products is to moisturise the skin. There is also research showing that panthenol can help our skin to produce more lovely lipids that are important for a strong and healthy skin barrier. Another great thing about panthenol is that it has anti-inflammatory and skin protecting abilities.
A study shows that it can reduce the irritation caused by less-nice other ingredients e. Research also shows that it might be useful for wound healing as it promotes fibroblast nice type of cells in our skin that produce skin-firming collagen proliferation. As for the hair the hydration effect is also true there. Panthenol might make your hair softer, more elastic and helps to comb your hair more easily.
If you are looking for a reason why red wine is good for you, good news, you have found it! Resveratrol, aka the " red grape antioxidant " is the thing that's suspected to keep the French from coronary heart disease despite their not so healthy eating habits such as high saturated fat intake. So resveratrol, found in the seed and skin of the red grape and berries , is a pretty well-known and well-studied molecule that has potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anticarcinogenic abilities.
Most of the studies were done examining resveratrol's promising anti-cancer properties, but as for skin care, it shows a potent protective effect against UV-caused oxidative stress as well as promising effects against multiple types of skin cancer including the most severe one, melanoma as an adjuvant therapy. When it comes to skincare and antioxidants, "the more the merrier", so resveratrol is definitely a nice addition to any skincare routine.
You can read all about the pure form here. This one is the so-called esterified version. The salt form of one of the main anti-inflammatory ingredients in the licorice plant, monoammonium glycyrrhizinate. Read more about licorice and why it's a skincare superstar here. It's one of the most commonly used thickener s and emulsion stabilizers. If the product is too runny, a little xanthan gum will make it more gel-like.
Used alone, it can make the formula sticky and it is a good team player so it is usually combined with other thickeners and so-called rheology modifiers helper ingredients that adjust the flow and thus the feel of the formula. Btw, Xanthan gum is all natural, a chain of sugar molecules polysaccharide produced from individual sugar molecules glucose and sucrose via fermentation.
Similar to other glycols , it's a helper ingredient used as a solvent , or to thin out thick formulas and make them more nicely spreadable. Probably the most common silicone of all. It is a polymer created from repeating subunits molecule and has different molecular weight and thus different viscosity versions from water-light to thick liquid.
As for skincare, it makes the skin silky smooth , creates a subtle gloss and forms a protective barrier aka occlusive. Also, works well to fill in fine lines and wrinkles and give skin a plump look of course that is only temporary, but still, it's nice. There are also scar treatment gels out there using dimethicone as their base ingredient.
It helps to soften scars and increase their elasticity. As for hair care, it is a non-volatile silicone meaning that it stays on the hair rather than evaporates from it and smoothes the hair like no other thing. Depending on your hair type, it can be a bit difficult to wash out and might cause some build-up btw, this is not true to all silicones, only the non-volatile types.
A so-called polymer microsphere , i. Similar to other microsphere powders, it can scatter the light to give products a soft focus or blurring effect. It also works as a texture enhancer giving formulas an exceptional smoothness and a velvet touch. A super common, medium-spreading emollient ester that gives richness to the formula and a mild feel during rubout. It can be a replacement for mineral oil and is often combined with other emollients to achieve different sensorial properties.
A white powdery thing that's the major component of glass and sand. It goes by the trade name "Phytodermina Lifting" that refers to two things: it's a "lifting" ingredient and it comes from plant raw materials. The manufacturer claims that it gives the skin a marked lifting effect , moisturizes , makes the skin soft and smooth , enhances brightness, and helps make-up to stay on after application.
It does not have the very best safety reputation but in general, you do not have to worry about it. What is true is that if a product contains so-called N-nitrogenating agents e. But with proper formulation that does not happen, TEA in itself is not a bad guy. But to be on the safe side, if you see Triethanolamine in an INCI and also something with nitra, nitro in the name of it just skip the product, that cannot hurt.
Super common little helper ingredient that helps products to remain nice and stable for a longer time. It does so by neutralizing the metal ions in the formula that usually get into there from water that would otherwise cause some not so nice changes. It's one of those things that help your cosmetics not to go wrong too soon, aka a preservative. It can be naturally found in fruits and teas but can also be made synthetically.
Has to be combined with some other nice preservatives, like potassium sorbate to be broad spectrum enough. At the same time, it also boosts the effectiveness of other preservatives , such as the nowadays super commonly used phenoxyethanol. It's a popular duo. Its strong point is being effective against yeasts and molds , and as a nice bonus seems to be non-comedogenic as well.
It is safe in concentrations of less than 0. Used at 0. A super versatile and common mineral powder that comes in different particle sizes. It is a multi-tasker used to improve skin feel, increase product slip, give the product light-reflecting properties, enhance skin adhesion or serve as an anti-caking agent. It is also the most commonly used "base" material for layered composite pigments such as pearl-effect pigments. In this case, mica is coated with one or more metal oxides most commonly titanium dioxide to achieve pearl effect via the physical phenomenon known as interference.
Traditionally, UV-filters are categorized as either chemical or physical. The big difference is supposed to be that chemical agents absorb UV-light while physical agents reflect it like a bunch of mini umbrellas on top of the skin. While this categorization is easy and logical it turns out it's not true. A recent, study shows that inorganic sunscreens work mostly by absorption, just like chemical filters, and only a little bit by reflection they do reflect the light in the visible spectrum, but mostly absorb in the UV spectrum.
Anyway, it doesn't matter if it reflects or absorbs, Titanium Dioxide is a pretty awesome sunscreen agent for two main reasons: it gives a nice broad spectrum coverage and it's highly stable. Regular sized Titanium Dioxide also has a great safety profile , it's non-irritating and is pretty much free from any health concerns like estrogenic effect worries with some chemical filters. The disadvantage of Titanium Dioxide is that it's not cosmetically elegant , meaning it's a white, "unspreadable" mess.
Sunscreens containing Titanium Dioxide are often hard to spread on the skin and they leave a disturbing whitish tint. The cosmetic industry is, of course, really trying to solve this problem and the best solution so far is using nanoparticles. The itsy-bitsy Nano-sized particles improve both spreadability and reduce the whitish tint a lot, but unfortunately, it also introduces new health concerns. The main concern with nanoparticles is that they are so tiny that they are absorbed into the skin more than we want them ideally sunscreen should remain on the surface of the skin.
Once absorbed they might form unwanted complexes with proteins and they might promote the formation of evil free radicals. But do not panic, these are concerns under investigation. A review article about the safety of nanoparticles summarizes this, "to date, in-vivo and in-vitro studies have not demonstrated percutaneous penetration of nanosized particles in titanium dioxide and zinc oxide sunscreens". The English translation is, so far it looks like sunscreens with nanoparticles do stay on the surface of the skin where they should be.
It's definitely one of the best UV-filter agents we have today , especially in the US where new-generation Tinosorb filters are not yet approved. Login Register. Follow us on our new Insta page ».
