Today, we’re going to talk about ingredients, which may not appear in the name of a certain product and just in the ingredients list, but are super stars nevertheless. 

  1. Niacinamide

Niacinamide is another name for vitamin B3. It has been described as an antioxidant and helps to boost the immunity of your skin. It improves the performance of your epidermal barrier, which helps to retain moisture, and keeps your skin hydrated for longer. It helps to decrease redness and blotchiness in the skin and regulates oil flow. So if you have oily skin, instead of washing it rigorously, which may actually aggravate the issue, you have the alternative of applying products containing Nianicamide to control the oil flow. It also helps with hyper-pigmentation and boosts collagen production, which in turn minimizes lines and wrinkles.

  1. Adenosine

Also known as Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), is a type of a molecule that is acts as the leading source of energy for majority of our cellular and muscular functions. It is known to boost Collagen and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Adenosine is derived from yeast and also helps to soothe the skin. As we age, dermal levels of ATP decline and creates an energy deficiency, which in turn effects skin appearance. Products containing ATP provide anti-aging protection along with moisture and soothing. Studies have shown that repeated use of topical ATP can result in younger, more radiant-looking skin.

  1. Hyaluronic Acid
It’s strange to think that the prime function of anything containing the word ‘acid’ can be to hydrate! Hyaluronic acid, also known as Sodium Hyaluronate packs a ton of skin-boosting benefits including amazing moisture! Similar to honey and propolis, Hyaluronic Acid is a humectant, which means it grabs moisture and holds it so that the skin can absorb it. In fact, the Hyaluronic Acid molecule can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water! As we age, we notice that our skin isn’t able to retain moisture as it used to, and once it loses its suppleness, the sagging and wrinkles begin. Hyaluronic acid helps to plump the skin, which then helps to fill fine lines and wrinkles.
