What does Cosmeceutical Mean?
Have you ever wondered what exactly Cosmeceutical skin care means or even does for the matter?
Cosmeceutical products always include specialty active ingredients that produce results which visibly improve the tone, elasticity and appearance of your skin. Prevention and restoration of ageing skin, is essentially what Cosmeceutical skincare does, to put it very simply. A more youthful YOU is the result.
Cosmeceuticals assist considerably with combating issues from fine lines, sun damage, pigmentation to scarring. Ingredients may include Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins A, C & E, AHA’s and peptides like Matrixyl Synthe 6 – all of which have been scientifically proven to deliver results.
Hyaluronic Acid – Otherwise known as the king of hydrators revives lost skin tone by plumping and hydrating – It’s unrivalled as a hydrator. Hyaluronic Acid penetrates deep into the skin and works very quickly with visual plumping and improvement to the skin texture, in a just a short time.
Vitamin A – Vitamin A is a wonderful skin rejuvenating ingredient that thickens skin tissue which is a wonderful benefit for mature age skin.
Vitamin C – Vitamin C is a potent anti-oxidant which helps stimulate the production of collagen. Skin brightening, increased elasticity and reduction of pigmentation are other major benefits. An oil form of Vitamin C called Tetra Isopalmitate (or VCIP for short) is the best option from the many forms of Vitamin C.
Vitamin E – Is an anti-oxidant which increases the efficacy of Vitamins C & A. Vitamin E removes free radicals which cause skin ageing and also acts
as a preservative to ensure freshness and stability of the oils. Greater penetration and effectiveness is achieved by combining Vitamins A C & E.
AHA’s – Alpha Hydroxy Acids (or AHA’s) are derived from milk or fruit sugars. The most common Alpha Hydroxy Acids used in skincare are glycolic, salicylic and lactic acids. AHA’s serve a threefold purpose – To exfoliate, moisturise and reduce wrinkles and they do exactly this and very effectively too.
Matrixyl Synthe 6 – This peptide encourages skin tissue to restore itself to a more youthful strength, while promoting deep tissue repair. Collagen and
elastin production is accelerated, skin appears softer and firmer, and elasticity is significantly improved. Matrixyl Synthe 6® was designed to promote
collagen production while strengthening the essential structure of skin tissue.
All of the ingredients above (except AHA’s as they are included in MiSMo’s AHA Fruit Masque with Jojoba Beads) together with MSM and Aloe Vera make up MiSMo’s anti-aging range. Rejuvenating Gel, ACE Vitamin C Serum and Anti-Wrinkle Cream posses very strong anti-aging properties that will change the look and feel of your skin, in a very short period of time.
