Anti-aging is a buzzword in the beauty industry and has been for many years. With the increasing demand for products that help people look and feel younger, the market is full of different products that claim to have the latest and greatest anti-aging ingredients.
But not all ingredients are the same and not all products deliver what they promise. In this article, we will focus on the main anti-aging ingredients and explain why it is beneficial to choose products with multiple active ingredients rather than products that contain only one or a small selection of active ingredients.
According to current studies, many so-called vitamin serums are of little use if they are mainly water-based and do not contain any other carrier substances. Many vitamin serums contain water as a base. According to Dr. According to Dr. Kenneth Mark, a board-certified US dermatologist, "water-based products are not effective because they do not penetrate the skin deeply enough." This is because the skin barrier is designed to prevent water from penetrating too deeply into the skin, making it difficult for purely water-based products to get the active ingredients where they are needed.
Why combination preparations?
By choosing anti-aging products with multiple active ingredients, one can achieve a more comprehensive approach to rejuvenating and improving skin. Here are 3 reasons why combination preparations are usually superior to mono preparations.
- Advantage of a combination of active ingredients: Anti-aging products that contain multiple active ingredients can offer a more comprehensive approach to rejuvenating and improving skin. The French dermatologist Dr. Pierre Polla emphasizes: "The use of multiple active ingredients can have a synergistic effect, offering greater effectiveness and longer results compared to products with only one active ingredient."
Superior Absorption: Products with multiple active ingredients can increase the absorption and benefits of the active ingredients. Dr. Marco de Padova, Italian dermatologist, explains: "A combination of active ingredients can help the active ingredients blend better into the skin and be better absorbed, achieving greater effectiveness."
Improved effectiveness against specific skin problems: Anti-aging products with multiple active ingredients can address different problems at the same time, such as: B. Lack of moisture, wrinkles and sun damage. Dr. Kenneth Mark, a dermatologist in New York, explains: "A combination of active ingredients can target more specific problems, resulting in better and more comprehensive skin improvement."
Important anti-aging ingredients
One of the most important ingredients in anti-aging products is hyaluronic acid . This active ingredient is known for its ability to bind moisture, making it an excellent choice for hydrating and plumping fine lines and wrinkles. According to Dr. According to Dr. David Lortscher, a board-certified dermatologist, hyaluronic acid is a powerful humectant, meaning it helps to hydrate and plump the skin.
Another important anti-aging ingredient is betaine . This ingredient is derived from sugar beets and is known to improve skin hydration and elasticity. According to a study published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, betaine has been shown to increase skin moisture and elasticity, making it an effective ingredient in anti-aging products.
Caffeine is another important anti-aging ingredient. This ingredient is known to improve blood circulation and reduce puffiness and dark circles under the eyes. According to Dr. Mark caffeine is a vasoconstrictor, meaning it helps reduce puffiness and dark circles under the eyes.
Rose hydrosols are also an important anti-aging ingredient. These ingredients are derived from rose petals and are known for their ability to soothe and hydrate the skin. According to a study published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, rose hydrosols have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, making them an effective ingredient in anti-aging products.
Squalane is another important anti-aging ingredient. Often derived from olives, this ingredient is known to hydrate the skin and protect it from free radical damage. According to a study published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, squalane has been shown to increase skin moisture and protect the skin from free radical damage, making it an effective ingredient in anti-aging products.
Likewise, ectoine is an important anti-aging ingredient. This ingredient is derived from a species of bacteria that can survive in harsh environmental conditions and is known for its ability to protect skin from environmental stress. According to a study published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, ectoine has been shown to protect the skin from environmental stressors, making it an effective ingredient in anti-aging products.
In summary, many international studies suggest that multi-ingredient products typically show greater anti-aging success than single-ingredient products.
