What are the 2022 on-trend ingredients?
On-trend ingredients are active ingredients used in skincare products to address various skin concerns and issues such as dry or oily skin or to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We want to share with you some of 2022’s top ingredients, why we love them, and which of our products you can find them in.
Revision Skincare® Retinol Complete® O.5 contains Bakuchiol which is sourced from Babchi, a herb used in Indian and Chinese traditional medicines. It is a perfect alternative to retinol for patients with sensitive skin as it causes less irritation, soothing your skin and speeding up the healing process.
Prebiotics support your own natural probiotic bacteria on your skin to fight off harmful bacteria. Prebiotics feed the good bacteria while also helping keep your skin’s pH balance healthy and prevent all sorts of other skin problems. Alpha-glucan oligosaccharide in Revision Skincare® D·E·J face cream® is one of these prebiotics, specialising in reducing water loss from your skin, and in attracting natural moisture from the air. This makes it ideal for treating dry, flaky skin.
Found in skinbetter science® EyeMax AlphaRet® Overnight Cream, White Mushroom Extract soothes your skin and brings it deep hydration, while also defending against environmental stressors and harmful particles in the air caused by pollution.
skinbetter science® Techno™ Neck Perfecting Cream contains Niacinamide, a specialised form of Vitamin B3 that provides your skin with a huge range of benefits, from boosting immunity and strengthening the Lipid barrier to help your skin retain moisture, to helping to maintain a healthy level of oil production and even protecting against environmental damage.
Neostrata® Antioxidant Defense Serum contains EGCG or Epigallocatechin Gallate found in Green Tea, and has profound anti-ageing benefits, working to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in your skin and boosting your skin’s moisturisation levels to reduce redness and inflammation.
Glycolic Acid found in Exuviance Professional® Glycolic Polish is a potent exfoliant. It works to break down the barrier between the outer layer of your skin and the growing layers below, shedding dead skin cells and helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while also ridding your skin of pollutants from the air.
The Cyspera® 3 Step System contains Cysteamine which restores your skin’s own natural pigmentation, which can be upset by ageing and by sun damage. It is naturally present in your skin, but we can boost it to better regulate melanin synthesis, correcting the appearance of dark spots.
Ceravitae, a patented hero ingredient found in Oxygenetix Foundation, is derived from a yeast compound. It promotes oxygen uptake within your skin’s cells, accelerating tissue growth and leaving you with visibly younger skin.
