You’d be forgiven for thinking that modern cutting edge technology would be producing high-tech ingredients at the cutting edge of skin care science to produce high-quality and more effective antiaging products. However the reality is that the reverse is the case and there are many ingredients which have been known for centuries to be good for your skin which are, or should be, found in the best skin care products to produce the optimum health for your skin. Seaweed and sheeps wool are 2 examples.
The obvious question is what does sheeps wool and seaweed have to do with skin care? In fact for centuries there has been a seaweed skin care link, because for centuries Japanese women have known how to use seaweed for good skin care.
There is a particular type of seaweed found around Japan, called Phytessence Wakame that has been eaten by the Japanese for hundreds of years. The fact that Japanese women, as they age, have some of the best skin in the world is no coincidence. The Japanese have known about the seaweed skin care link for a long time.
And as a result Wakame has been prized for it’s skin health giving properties for all of this time.
Modern science has now discovered seaweed and anti aging go together and the result is a wide range of seaweed skin care products. The reasons Wakame is so good for your skin have to do with the actions of a particular enzyme. It’s called hyaluronidase and it gradually breaks down the collagen and elastin in your skin.
Collagen and elastin are important skin proteins which have a role in maintaining skin elasticity, and it is elasticity which is responsible for maintaining that strength and suppleness that keeps wrinkles and sagging at bay. So you don’t want hyaluronidase breaking down any of your collagen and elastin.
It is now understood that some of the essential components of Phytessence Wakame help inhibit the actions of hyaluronidase and this leads to an improvement in the levels of collagen and elastin in your skin. This helps improve elasticity and leads to a lower incidence of wrinkles and skin sagging.
But how about the sheep? Science now knows of the link between seaweed and skin aging but why would sheep have anything to do with good anti aging?
Again it’s all about collagen and elastin. Some of the ingredients found in sheeps wool help stimulate the skin to produce more collagen and elastin all by itself. These ingredients have now been isolated and put into a patented ingredient called Cynergy TK which is found in the worlds best anti aging products. Again there’s more elastin and collagen there to keep wrinkles and sagging away.
So cutting-edge science has discovered why age-old ingredients like seaweed extract and sheeps wool can help produce optimum skin health and the result is some excellent seaweed skin care products which use extracts of Phytessence Wakame and Cynergy TK.
