The Science Behind Anti-Aging Products for Facial Care
May 6, 2019
Skin care products have come an incredibly long way over the years in terms of effectivity, versatility, and quality control. Much of what is on the market today has gone through rigorous testing for quality and safety standards, and the developmental procedures and science behind anti-aging products is deep – so much so, that most people never truly know what goes on behind the scenes with the research and development aspects of each and every product on the market.
Anti-Aging products have become one of the best-selling skin care items on the market. As of 2016, the skin care industry was a $121 billion dollar money maker – thus, increasing the need and desire for effective products that are sustainably sourced, responsibly crafted, and good for the environment – and most of all, for the consumer.
Research is continuous in the world of beauty and skin care. It seems as though there are always new-to-us ingredients being discovered (and in some cases, re-discovered) and implemented into the latest and greatest in anti-aging skincare technology.
There is much more than scientific research that goes into formulating these skincare products, though. There is even psychological research done in clinical studies to determine self-esteem issues that go skin deep. Bioethicists have questioned whether or not it’s morally ‘right’ to give the title of anti-aging to skin care products, being that the products don’t quite make the mark on turning back time, but rather, provide temporary results for as long as a consumer uses the product.
What’s right or wrong or morally correct does not seem to phase the masses, as people will undoubtedly do whatever it takes to look good – no matter the cost or consequence.
Some of the main or key ingredients used in anti-aging skin care products today are detailed below, with brief descriptions on what they offer in the way of facial benefit.
Peptides work to fill in lines, wrinkles, and stimulate collagen production. This plays a vital role in anti-aging skincare products, and is one of the many popular additions to these types of products.
Hyaluronic acid works to hydrate the face and bring about a youthful, dewy complexion. This is of sincere importance to most people seeking any anti-aging product, because this is one of the most beneficial and helpful ingredients in these types of products.
Vitamins A, C, E
Vitamin A and C work to brighten the skin and alleviate dark circles around the eyes. They can also help with pigmentation and discoloration issues. Vitamin E is nourishing and hydrating, and can also alleviate irritated skin while bringing a sense of comfort to dry skin.
Glycerin is one of those ingredients most skincare products won’t do without. It’s very hydrating and helps to keep the skin supple. It works as a humectant, drawing water and moisture into the skin cells. Many soaps, creams, lotions, face washes and serums contain glycerin. It’s capable of being used even on sensitive skin.
While science is forever evolving, and skincare is ever changing, the above ingredients are a constant and likely are going to continue being used for generations to come. Learning more about what goes on your skin is a great way to determine what products you should use and buy. Remember that your wallet is the one keeping businesses alive.
