Each year, we come across new anti-aging products promising ground-breaking results. Our endless search for long-lasting beauty drives us to try out all these products, but what many of us fail to understand is that a product is never defined by its phenomenal marketing or its celebrity endorsements. What should ultimately help the product earn cult status following is its ingredient list. As a brand, OROGOLD Cosmetics has always stressed using the right ingredients that can bring about a difference in your skin care regimen. Each of our products boasts of well-researched ingredient compositions that feature highly prized skin care ingredients, and our deep peels are no different. The following page introduces you to some of the ingredients that make our deep peeling products so special.
Gold is one ingredient that is ever present in every OROGOLD product. It has been around for centuries, and has been favored by beauty queens throughout history. There was a time when gold was out reach for anyone besides royalty, but modern day technology has allowed us to use this lustrous wonder in each of our products, so that anyone wanting to enjoy its golden beauty and luxurious feel can do so without giving it a second thought.
Oyster Shell Extract
Oyster shell extract is a popular ingredient used in top-of-the-line exfoliators around the world because of its cooling and tissue firming effects. The ingredient is extremely rich in amino acids, silicic acid and vitamin B and is highly valued for its soft and gentle exfoliation properties. Studies have also confirmed that oyster shell extract offer anti-inflammatory benefits to the skin, thereby reducing the chances of inflammation caused by exfoliation.
Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract)
Aloe barbadensis leaf extract, or aloe vera, is another ingredient that has been used in the world of skin care for centuries. Aloe vera benefits people with all types of skin due to its moisturizing abilities, and is famous for soothing inflammation, infections and burning sensations. It is perfect for calming skin issues such as eczema and sun burns, and is also known for its rich anti-aging properties.
Vitamin E (Tocopheryl Acetate)
Vitamin E has often been called the “radical protector” because of the role it plays in helping protect the cell membranes from oxidative damage. Vitamin E has also been deemed responsible for preventing collagen from being destroyed, thereby helping skin look younger for longer. Vitamin E boasts of a fascinating synergy with vitamin C, which is why many of the top brands use the two ingredients in tandem. You can often find the ingredient listed as tocopheryl acetate or tocopheryl linoleate in your skin care products.
Vitamin A (Retinyl Palmitate)
Vitamin A has been called one of the best anti-aging products that the world has ever seen. It has countless studies to its name, and is one of the most proven ingredients in the field of anti-aging at this moment. It helps the skin create healthier and better cells, and also increases the glycosaminoglucans and collagen content in skin. This results in an improved barrier function and an improved skin texture. Moreover, vitamin A offers proven benefits in terms of diminishing fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and pigmentation. The ingredient is often listed as retinol or retinyl palmitate in skin care products.
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)
Vitamin C is another ingredient that is essential for proper skin care. This water-soluble vitamin is an antioxidant that has been proven to stimulate the production of collagen (including dermal collagen) in skin, resulting in fewer wrinkles, fine lines and scars. The ingredient is also responsible for helping skin enhance its repair process, reducing discoloration, withstanding exposure to sunlight better and reducing the level of inflammation. The ingredient can be found in many forms such as ascorbyl palmitate or ascorbyl phosphate in skin care products, but ascorbic acid is considered the most useful form of vitamin C when it comes to skin care.
Pro-Vitamin B5 (Panthenol)
Panthenol, or pro-vitamin B5, is a natural humectant, making it one of the top hydrating ingredients for any skin care regimen. It is derived from plants and is one of the best natural substances to offer help in giving skin a younger and more beautiful appearance. Panthenol promises to diminish the look of wrinkles, particularly around the eyes and the mouth, and this makes it one of the top solutions for promoting healing within the tissues. Because of its humectant properties, it can also be used to treat all sorts of skin disorders and irritations.
Glycerin is a humectant that attracts moisture into the skin, and gives it a natural dewy glow and hydrated look. It is commonly used to treat dry or eczematous skin, without causing irritation or side effects that are usually associated with many such treatments. It also helps the face look smoother by preventing the problems associated with dryness that usually crop up with age. Its dual ability to hydrate the skin and fill in the gaps that are associated with dry skin allows it to protect the skin and keep the outermost layer intact.
