Top Anti-aging Ingredients
Anti-aging ingredients help in reducing skin among which gives younger look to a person by revitalizing and tightening the skin, leading to the increased demand for anti-aging ingredients. Popular bioactive anti-ingredients include:
1. Alpha-Lipoic Acid
Alpha-Lipoic acid helps to prevent the signs of aging in the skin while soothing it at the same time. It can improve cellular energy production and reduce inflammation, a major cause of aging. It also provides skin with superior antioxidant protection, further activating antioxidants such as Coenzyme Q10.
Biotin is Vitamin H, commonly known as Biotin. It has the functions of helping cells reach their full growth cycle, promoting stronger hair, skin and nails. Biotin deficiency can cause hair loss, dry scaly skin and cracking in the corners of the mouth.
3. Coenzyme Q10
Coenzyme Q10 can provide powerful antioxidant protections and collagen-boosting capabilities. Its deficiency can cause an inability to properly produce collagen and elastin, two of the main building blocks of healthy skin.
4. Green Tea
Green tea has the properties of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. The anti-aging property of green tea is attributed to polyphenols. Studies have shown that green tea can reduce sun damage, protecting skin from cancer and decrease collagen breakdown.
5. Hyaluronic Acid (HA)
HA is a powerful moisturizer. It can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Compared with other polymers, hyaluronic acid has the greatest ability to hold water.
Niacinamide, also known as Vitamin B3, can suppress melanin from reaching the surface of the skin, therefore lightening areas of dark spots that plague mature skin. Compared with hydroquinone, niacinamide is a more natural way of dealing with hyperpigmentation.
Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals damage, improving the appearance of skin and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
8. Vitamin A
Vitamin A, when in concentrations of 0.25 percent or higher, can increase cell turnover, helping to improve skin texture, fine lines and brown spots.
9. Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that can increase skin’s collagen, making the skin appear plumper while reducing signs of wrinkles and fine lines. It can also protect skin from enviromental pollutants, including UV exposure.
10. Vitamin E
As a powerful antioxidant, Vitamin E helps skin fight wrinkles and fine lines caused by pollution, UV rays and free radicals. Since human body can not naturally produce Vitamin E, it’s important to get it from a skin or hair care product. Vitamin E can also reduce infammation.
11. Vitamin K
