Pro-Xylane, Retinol, Hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C, Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs), Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Peptides, Rhamnose and Adenosin seem to hold the secret of eternal youth. These anti-aging ingredients can be found in a whole range of products, from lifting and firming anti-wrinkle creams to wrinkle fillers and re-sculpting treatments.

 

Top 10 Anti-aging Ingredients: Do they live up to the hype?

 

WHAT IS AN ACTIVE ANTI-AGING INGREDIENT?

A group of molecules that help combat cellular aging by boosting cell synthesis, which naturally diminishes over time. “Ideally, anti-aging treatments should be applied twice a day, in the morning and also in the evening, because your skin is more receptive during the night.”

 

PRO-XYLANE: ANTI-AGING INGREDIENTS

Pro-Xylane is an ingredient originating from Maxmedchem R&D, obtained from natural xylosis, playing a key role in the initiation of GAG synthesis. It thickens the skin, gives it volume, thickness and cohesion between the dermis and epidermis. It acts on the biomechanical properties of skin, visibility of wrinkles, pigment marks and cutaneous texture.

 

RETINOL: DEEP-DOWN WRINKLE TREATMENT

Retinol is a vitamin A derivative, which is also naturally present in the skin. It boosts cell regeneration at the lowest level of the epidermis and prevents these new cells from aging too quickly as they rise up to the skin’s surface. “By plumping up the ‘living’ layer of the epidermis, retinol fills in wrinkles deep down,” says Maxmedchem. And don’t forget: “Retinol can make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so make sure you use at least some sun protection (SPF 15 or above).”

 

HYALURONIC ACID: FILL IN WRINKLES ON THE SKINSURFACE

This active ingredient is a macromolecule that occurs naturally in the skin. “It attracts and holds water in the innermost layers of the skin, creating a plump, cushioned effect,” explains Maxmedchem. It’s particularly effective against wrinkles, uneven skin texture and rough complexions.

 

VITAMIN C: BRIGHTENS THE COMPLEXION

A potent antioxidant, vitamin C helps to neutralize free radicals that can damage skin cells and accelerate aging. says Maxmedchem It also promotes collagen synthesis and brightens the complexion.

 

RHAMNOSE: FIRMING, LIFTING, ANTI-WRINKLE PROPERTIES

Rhamnose is a sugar extracted from birch trees. It causes a series of reactions at all levels of the skin, from the innermost dermis up through the dermo-epidermal junction to the outer layer of the epidermis. It tackles wrinkles and boosts the skin’s firmness – so can we assume it’s just like vitamin C? “Not quite,” explains Maxmedchem. “Although they both act on the deeper layers of the skin, Rhamnose has a much broader effect and works on more of the skin’s molecules.”

 

ADENOSINE: DERMO-RELAXING EFFECT

Adenosine has a dermo-relaxing effect that is to say, it is able to oppose the accentuation of expression lines during the day. Moreover, new results from L’Oréal Research highlight its role in the protection of cellular energy metabolism.

 

NIACINAMIDE (VITAMIN B3): SEAL IN MOISTURE

This multitasking ingredient can help to improve skin barrier function, reduce inflammation, regulate oil production, and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

 

PEPTIDES: PROMOTE SKIN ELASTICITY

Peptides are short chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of certain proteins needed by the skin, like collagen and elastin. Using a serum or moisturizer that contains peptides can lead to firmer, younger-looking skin and maybe even fewer breakouts.

 

ALPHA HYDROXY ACIDS (AHAs): SKIN EXFOLIATION

What Are AHAs? AHAs are a type of exfoliating acid known as alpha-hydroxy acids. They are naturally occurring in sugarcane (glycolic acid), milk (lactic acid), and fruit sources (citric acid). When these acids are used in cosmetic formulations today, they are usually produced in a laboratory. improve skin texture, and promote cell turnover, resulting in smoother and more radiant skin.

 

BETA HYDROXY ACIDS (BHAs): REDUCE AGING THE SKIN

BHAs can reduce excess oil by slowing down sebum production. Clearing and preventing acne, blackheads and clogged pores: While both acids can help with mild acne by sloughing off dead skin cells. BHAs also work on a deeper level to clear trapped sebum in the pores and prevent new clogs from forming.

 

Throughout the last decade, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) have increasingly appeared as ingredients in cosmetics intended to reduce the signs of aging in the skin. More recently, beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), or a combination of AHAs and BHAs, have appeared as ingredients in these skin care products.
