Are proven ingredients guarenteed to work?
Many of us ascribe to the idea that as long as they use treatments backed by plentiful scientific research that results are virtually guarenteed. However such optimism is unfounded... Due to variations in individual skin chemistry, only a percentage of people respomd to even proven treatments. More importantly, an ingredient may only be effective if delivered deep enough into the dermis in sufficient amounts. This last statement depends on whether the product is formulated correctly to accomplsih the these two objectives. So knowing that a product has proven ingredients is only the first step, the second step is selecting a product with proper formulation.
Let me provide an analogy...Imagine you live in a brick house and a neighbor is throwing bricks at it. Will your walls become thicker or stronger...? Of course not! The bricks will only scattered on the ground. The same happens when you apply a collagen cream. Collagen is a large molecule therefore cannot penetrate the skin. Collagen will simply remain on the skin until it is washed off... Even if the collagen molecule was reduced so that it could penetrate the skin, it could not ingregrate with the skin's collagen matrix. However, collagen creams are not completely usless, they can hold in moisture and thus make a decent moisturizer. Topicals Vitamins
There are many vitamin rich creams and serums available on the market which can be frusterating and overwhleming when trying to decide what to buy. It's important to make one thing clear regarding vitamins they are NOT created equal, especially as far as topical application is concerned. While all vitamins are essential for our survivial as a part fo food intake, only a few have been shown to reduce or retard the signs of aging when applied to the skin . Such vitamins include, vitamin C, vitamins and possibly vitamin E and niacinamide (a form of B3). Also of mention are coenzyme Q10 and lipoic acid, which are vitamin-like condintionally-essentially nutrients showing promise in anti-aging skin care. Important to note, is that even these vitamins must be formulated and applied correclty to deliver results.
Aloe vera plant can soothe inflamed skin. However, it has no effect on wrinkles. Furthermore, active ingredients in aloe vera are relatively unstable and quickly degrade unless specially stabilized. Many creams with alooe do not include proper stabilizers and are useless even against irritation.
Scientifically Sounding Ingredients
Scientifcally sounding ingredients do not mean that a cream is effective or innovative.
