Beneficial Ingredients That Keep Your Skin Healthy July 14 2015, 0 Comments

When you are buying skin care products you want to make sure the ingredients in the products are wholesome, organic, and good for your skin. A quality skin care line should contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, hyaluronic sodium, alpha bisabolol, Green Tea extract, and chamomile oil, all of which improve your skin's condition. Let’s examine each ingredient and just how it benefits the skin when included as an ingredient in an organic skin care product:

Hyaluronic Acid

 

The use of this ingredient, also referred to as HA or sodium hyaluronate, is one way to provide natural hydration to your skin. The ingredient ensures that your skin takes on a healthy glow and aids in the prevention of the collagen loss which is needed for soft, supple, and youthful looking skin. Created by fibroblast cells and natural to the body, hyaluronic acid gives skin a fuller appearance while moisturizing the deep layers of the dermis. The ingredient is responsible for skin protection as well as repair.

As a glycosaminoglycan, an ingredient vital to connective tissues, hyaluronic acid is among polysaccharides found in epithelial, neural and connective tissue, and it is equally vital to the tissue responsible for acting as structural support for the extra cellular matrix.

There are 15 grams of the ingredient in the body at any time, with 33% of that being synthesized and degraded daily. The dehydrating effects of aging are diminished with the use of natural skin care products containing hyaluronic acid. The ingredient lends to additional moisture in the skin and because it is adaptive it will adjust its moisture absorption rate based on the climate and season. While collagen is effective in making skin supple it lacks the ability to penetrate into the deeper layers of your skin. This is not an issue with hyaluronic acid

This powerful ingredient is found in Olivaloe's Anti-Aging Face and Neck Serum and should be used as the start to your daily moisturizing regime.

Hyaluronic Sodium

Hyaluronic sodium helps to maintain hydration in the skin cells themselves and prevents collagen loss. When compared to hyaluronic acid, hyaluronic sodium can penetrate the skin with higher intensity and gets to through to the dermis with ease. 

Hyaluronic sodium can sustain up to 1000 times its weight when it comes to water retention. The ingredient lends positive benefits to the micro-circulation of the blood and helps decrease the appearance of wrinkles by making the skin supple, softer, and fuller looking. The use of hyaluronic sodium ensures minimal water loss trans-epidermally as well.

Olivaloe uses hyalutonic sodium in our Face Sunscreen as well as the Face and Neck Serum.

 

Green Tea Extract

Brimming with antioxidants, green tea offers unsurpassed benefits in terms of skin health. The tea contains tannins and flavonoids that help in diminishing the presence of harmful free radicals while the herb calms and sooth the skin. Green Tea Extract is a wonderful skin treatment for around the sensitive eye area and the extract is terrific for those who have skin sensitivity issues in general.

Green Tea Extract is used in these products:

Olivaloe Eye Cream

Olivaloe Face Cream Normal to Dry and Oily to Normal

Olivaloe Deep Cleaning and Rejuvenation Face Mask

Olivaloe Milk Cleanser

Olivaloe Body Butter, Body Lotion, Hand Cream

Alpha Bisabolol

Otherwise known as levomenol , alpha bisabolol is a liquid with an oily consistency. Alpha bisabolol is often used for the treatment of dry, damaged skin, and it helps to diminish skin flakiness. This ingredient is derived from chamomile and lends a soothing quality to skin care products. The ingredient is great for dealing with tired, stressed skin and the puffiness, inflammation or bags that appear under the eyes. As a natural antibacterial agent, alpha bisabolol is extremely healthy for your skin. Alpha bisabolol has anti-mycotic, anti-inflammatory and anti-phlogistic properties. In the best skin care products, this ingredient has high levels of panthenol, which promotes skin healing and stimulates healthy the production of healthy skin cells and repair.

You will find this ingredient in Olivaloe's Deoderant and Eye Cream.

 

Chamomile Oil

The finest organic skin care brands contain chamomile oil. The herb lends to the intense hydration of the skin and gives it a healthy shine and youthful glow. Chamomile oil features anti-inflammatory properties so it reduces swelling of tired eyes and soothes solar radiation-induced skin irritations. Chamomile oil is excellent for dealing with acne related conditions such as eczema. It also is very effective in treating scars and skin rashes. The ingredient is exceptional for dealing with dark circles under the eyes and crow’s feet.
