There’s a new buzzword within the beauty industry, and if you’re serious about choosing the best anti-ageing product, then listen up. Cosmeceuticals are beauty anti-ageing products that have some sort of medical or pharmaceutical background, and are grounded in science. They often come with clinically proven trials, and are not typically available instore, but either online or in cosmetic clinics and dermatology centres.
Cosmeceuticals usually focus on the latest scientific breakthroughs, and use specialistic ingredients that have been clinically proven to deliver results. And we have searched the range of cosmeceuticals to bring you the best four beauty cosmeceuticals on the market today.
Centering around recent breakthroughs in stem cell technology, Dr Levy believe that ageing skin is down to the depletion of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, which leaves skin looking lacklustre and wrinkled. These products contain Argan CDV, hyaluronic acid, tripeptides, aloe vera, borage and powerful vitamin extracts. These ingredients work together and help to activate epidermal stem cells, moisturise the skin and increase skin elasticity.
With visible results after only 8 weeks, the hefty price tag is definitely worth the money. From Dr Levy.
Bioeffect works in a similar way to Dr Levy Switzerland, as it uses cellular activators to make skin cells grow faster. Using EGF Serum (which stands for Epidermal Growth Factors) which is a type of protein that actually won a Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1986 for its ability to make skin cells grow faster. This protein is already being used to help treat burns victims, and the EGF within the BioEffect range encourages the skin to repair its own cells and speeds up the rate of cell turnover.
Christoffer Konigsfeldt from BioEffect says: “The longer you use BioEffect, the more visible results you will see – not just on wrinkles but also on complexion and skin tone; it helps maintain healthy looking skin.” From Bioeffect.
Leading dermatologist Dr. Murad combines hard science with his very own practical experience of working in cosmetic clinics across the globe, to create a range of skin products. We love his Age Reform Time Release Retinol Concentrate for Deep Wrinkles, proven to reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles by 45% in 6 weeks. It contains a matrixyl youth-building peptide that works to make skin appear younger and wrinkles look softer. From Marks & Spencer.
Finally, I always think that it is the wrinkles around our eyes that are the biggest giveaway to our actual age. So if you have stubborn crows-feet that just won’t disappear, you’ll be pleased to know that Neostrata’s Skin Active Intensive Eye Therapy won a silver medal in Best Newcomer Product 2012 in the annual Aesthetic Award.
With proven results, this serum actively plumps up the deeper layers of the delicate eye area, using apple stem cell extract that works to stimulate cell renewal. From Aesthetic Source.
