Meet The Alchemist For Agelessness

With a babysitter mom, Eugene was virtually surrounded by babies during his growing-up years. And while each was unique and special in his own way, one thing they shared in common was the immaculate, soft and smooth skin. “I could never forget the first time I held a baby – pristine beauty at its purest best!” recalls Eugene. His grandma – on the hand – was understandably at the other end of the continuum with thin, dry, crepey, and pigmented skin. The stark contrast often made Eugene wonder if wrinkles and saggy skin were “inevitable bookends in the passage of time” or could these visible signs of age, in fact, be halted and eve

Urea

Urea is a colorless or white crystalline powder and is used as a humectant in cosmetics and personal care products. Urea is found in the skin’s epidermis and it is an active part of the body’s natural moisturizing factor (NMF) which functions to keep skin hydrated, protected and working efficiently.
It is an excellent hydrophilic molecule (water-loving) and holds on to water molecules in the epidermis and dermis, keeping the skin moist. When used in high concentrations, urea can be used an alternative to acid peels. It helps with the exfoliation process and enhances skin penetration for other active ingredients in cosmetic products.

Tocopherol

Tocopherol constitutes 96% of our skin’s natural antioxidant defense system. It is proven that tocopherol absorbs UV rays and helps prevent UV-induced free radical damage and pollution-related damage to the skin. It also helps to protect products by acting as a preservative and preventing natural and essential oils like jojoba and avocado oil from going rancid. It has excellent wound healing properties. As inflammatory conditions in the skin are a leading cause of skin aging, tocopherol’s anti-inflammatory action can mitigate the signs of aging by enhancing the topical delivery of other active compounds into the skin.

Sodium Hyaluronate

Sodium hyaluronate is able to retain huge amounts of moisture – 1,000 times its weight in water – making it an excellent topical moisturizer for the skin. It is more effective than hyaluronic acid because of its smaller molecular size which enables it to easily penetrate the skin’s surface. It penetrates further into deeper layers of the skin, retains more water and keeps the skin hydrated.

Rosa Centifolia Flower Extract

Rosa centifolia contains a few vitamins and antioxidants that help moisturize dry skin. Its astringent properties help tighten pores and reduce the redness and inflammation due to distended capillaries. 10,000 pounds of rose petals are required to distill just one pound of rose oil which is done through various processes like steam distillation, cold process and solvent extraction.

Palmitic Acid

According to a Korean study published in a 2010 edition of the “Journal of Medicinal Food,” palmitic acid does possess antioxidant properties. The antioxidants help prevent free radical damage to maintain youthful radiant skin. Two main functions of palmitic acid are to act as an emulsifier and surfactant. The low surface tension of palmitic acid allows water to combine with the oil and dirt molecules and wash them away.

Niacinamide

Niacinamide belongs to the vitamin B family and is also known as vitamin B3. It was initially used to prevent pellegra, an infectious disease with severe cutaneous lesions and was originally named vitamin PP for pellegra-preventive. During the 1970s, various clinical trials highlighted the good skin penetration of niacinamide.

Glycerin

Glycerol or glycerin is a colorless liquid found in all natural fats and a humectant that attracts moisture to the upper layer of the skin, prevents dryness and maintains the skin’s barrier against pollutants. It is a common component of natural soaps due to its moisturizing and cleansing properties. As the skin ages, it gets dry easily due to its inability to retain water. Glycerin can make the skin smooth and plump by filling in the tiny cracks in the dry skin. It can also be used to help wounds heal faster.

Decyl Glucoside

In the personal care industry, decyl glucoside is used as a surfactant to lower the surface tension of the formulation, remove dirt and oils and stabilize the water and oil phases of the product. It is one of the few surfactants that is obtained from natural sources and does not leave the carcinogen ethylene oxide as a by-product of manufacturing. Toxin-free and biodegradable, decyl glucoside is also environment-friendly.
