The Anti-Aging Wonder Ingredients You Need to Know

The Anti-Aging Wonder Ingredients You Need to Know

Dry, sagging skin. Who wants it? No one! One of the hallmark signs of aging is skin that has lost its luster, which is why it's so important to choose ingredients that target the skin’s moisture barrier, lipid content, and regenerative abilities. 

So, what are said wonder ingredients? We’re glad you asked.

Anti-aging wonder workers

While there are many great options within the anti-aging realm, these four are top of the class when it comes to regaining a natural, youthful glow:

#1 Tamanu Oil
The super-charged antioxidant.

Tamanu oil is a multi-wonder skincare powerhouse. Extracted from the nut of the evergreen Calophyllum inophyllum tree, this “green gold” is a known antioxidant, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory.

Rich in coumarins, which increase blood flow and capillary function, and fatty acids, tamanu oil can uniquely penetrate three layers of skin and promote the formation of new tissue. It lessens the appearance of stretch marks, acne scars and wrinkles (especially around the delicate eye area) and helps to lock in moisture molecules within the skin’s barrier. For centuries it has carried the nickname Beauty Leaf Oil. We can’t argue with that.

#2 Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate (GFF)
The natural revitalizer.

Galactomyces ferment filtrate (GFF) is a nutrient dense yeast that’s earning rave reviews among beauty industry experts and mainstream consumers alike. Why? Because it’s a highly effective moisturizer and skin brightener that also controls sebum production, decreases certain kinds of acne, and increases skin’s elasticity.

Think of it like kombucha for your face, but without the vinegar tingle or smell. Dry and tired skin is nourished and revitalized for a natural, youthful glow. 

Fun Fact: GFF was originally discovered when it was noticed that sake brewer’s hands looked brighter and more youthful than any other part of their skin. A derivative of that yeast was then formulated into skincare and the rest is GFF history.

#3 Beta Glucan
The protective moisture shield.

If you haven’t noticed by now, we are obsessed with beta glucan. And for good reason.

Also derived from food sources -- mushrooms, yeast, and oats -- beta glucan is an excellent humectant, linking its molecules together to literally create a protective shield over the skin, protecting it from moisture loss, environmental toxins, and any other stressor that may cause premature aging, redness, or irritation. Beta is truly the best!

#4 Ceramides
The lipid lover.

Ceramides are natural lipids found in the uppermost layer of the skin. Making up almost half of the skin’s composition, they are one of the single most important factors in determining how our skin looks as it ages. Loss of lipids = loss of firmness, leaving wrinkles, fine lines, and dehydration to creep in.

Ceramide

When we use products that properly contain ceramides, we boost the skin’s natural ceramide production, as well as prevent further moisture loss and damage from the sun, pollution, and other environmental stressors.
