Anti-aging ingredients only work if they're absorbed
The ability to produce results in skincare require the combination of natural botanicals, active ingredients and the capability to quickly absorb into the skin.
Many skincare companies proclaim that they have found the bottle of youth and tout a certain hero ingredient. It gets confusing and we all want to think that there is one quick step to regain our former youthful appearance. The truth is that not all ingredients are of the same quality and NOT all products are produced with the ability to maximize the potential of the formulation.
The concept of MICRONIZED is based on the science of dermatology. Dermatology involves the study, research, diagnosis, and management of any health conditions that may affect the skin, fat, hair, nails, and membranes.
The skin is the largest organ of our body and plays a crucial role in protecting the host. While skin appears to be a mere covering of our body, it is best thought of as an immune organ and the first line of defense. Therefore, understanding how skin care is delivered to the body is essential for realizing results.
When you’re choosing skin care products, absorption rate is really what we’re after here. Most ingredients, even if they can penetrate to the deepest levels of the skin, are too big to be absorbed to each layer of the skin.
Why should I care about absorption?
Not all products need to be absorbed by the skin. Skin barrier products like zinc or petroleum jelly, found for example in creams, form a temporary protective film over the surface of the skin, protecting babies' bottoms against urine and bacteria for example.
However, for a skincare product to have any effect on aging, pigmentation or skin texture, it will have to penetrate and absorb into your skin.
Getting product where you need it
The average person uses an average of 10 different cosmetic products on his or body every day. So, when reading the ingredient list of a promising skincare product, ask yourself whether it’s going to actually soak in where it’s needed, or just remain on the surface of your skin. Good skincare is more than the right labels – it’s about results.
