Two of the most promising areas for skin health are reducing inflammation through reduction of free radicals and helping with cell proliferation. The sun is our skin’s worst enemy. The sun’s rays typically produce free radicals and inflammation at the skin level potentially hastening the aging appearance of our skin. If natural products can he used to help reduce this inflammation, even by a small amount, this will over time leave our skin healthier.
Increase in cell proliferation aids in health and appearance of our skin. As we age our skin cells do regenerate as often as they did when we were young. The reduction of regeneration activity leads to wrinkles and age spots. If we can give our skin a little boost in faster cell turnover we can maintain a healthier skin longer. We cant stop the aging process but we can help to slow it down.

Used in skin care not only does is aid in healthy skin but it is also a good water-binding agent or humectant. Why is water binding important? Because there is constant water loss in the epidermis due to evaporation. This is called Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL) and amounts to several ounces a day. Skin also loses water through sweating. Without constant re-hydration, skin wrinkles more easily. A humectant helps to bind water to the skin, keeping it more hydrated and reducing the formation of wrinkles.
