Whether there is truly revolutionary skincare products. Many scientifically advanced creams and lotions have been created, and of these, some can minimize and reverse the conspicuous signs of aging. revolution also probably originates from the ingredients
Perhaps we should revolt against the major cosmetic companies. For years, they have been selling us products that contain little more than petrolatum or mineral oil.
At least one dermatologist came out to say that petrolatum and mineral oil could cause premature aging of the skin. Consumer protection groups warn that the ingredients may contain cancer-causing contaminants.
They are derivatives of crude oil, what we use to make fuel for our cars and keep the engines running smoothly. It’s hard to understand how anyone could have ever thought those ingredients would be good for the skin. It happened at a time when people were accustomed to trying things and waiting for an immediate reaction.
The immediate reaction experienced after using petrolatum or mineral oil is a feeling of slickness. The skin looks shiny. Oil workers thought the ingredient soothed their burns, which may have been true. But doctors have found that petroleum jelly (clear petrolatum) prolongs the time burns take to heal and increases the risk of blistering.
Today’s revolutionary skincare products contain some ingredients that were used long before the age of crude oil. Avocados, macadamias, olives, passion fruit, jojoba wax and many other naturally occurring ingredients have been around throughout recorded history. Modern scientists have found the key compounds explaining their benefits. They are nutrients.
If you are like most people, you take vitamins to improve the health of your body. Your skin is an organ of your body. Like every other organ, it needs nutrients to enjoy good health.
Today’s revolutionary skincare creams and lotions contain nutrients that stimulate the production of new cells and fibers. They improve the skin’s moisture content and its firmness. But, here’s another example of where we might need to revolt against the major cosmetic companies.
Collagen is a structural protein that can be thought of as a nutrient. It is present in many creams and lotions, particularly those designed for aging skin.
Collagen cannot penetrate through the skin’s surface. It makes it shiny. After drying, it may fill deep wrinkles, but the effect is very temporary. It takes only one smile or frown to crack the thin film and reverse the effect.
Revolutionary skincare creams contain active proteins that can be absorbed and used by the skin’s cells. Functional Keratin is one example.
It has been shown to improve the skin’s firmness by over 40% after only 18 days of use and it provides a temporary cosmetic effect by bending the light slightly, which makes wrinkles look less deep.
Natural vitamin E is an excellent antioxidant, very important to the skin’s health. Most of the vitamin E used by cosmetic companies is produced synthetically. The molecules used to produce it come from crude oil.
So, there are some truly revolutionary skincare products. But they are not manufactured by the major cosmetic companies.
