Plazan Skin Care Article: The Evolution in Anti-Aging Skin Care Products
Issued February 15, 2005
During the last 30 years more attention is paid to the anti-aging skin care.
Developments within this category were influenced by such factors, as competition between the major brands,
as well as worldwide increase in demand for the so-called "rejuvenating cosmetics".
People have no intentions of putting up with aging.
Today they are turning to alternative therapies and anti-aging products,
however, they will not spend money on products which do not produce the desired results.
At present, the special properties, ingredients and benefits of the products are clearly shown on the label
In the beginning of 1990s, a lot of skin care anti-aging ingredients have been studied.
The most important of those, Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA), became the first ingredients to affect the skin.
Sally Penford, of the International Dermal Institute, a post-graduate training school for therapists, comments:
"It stimulated women to start considering cosmetic surgery, glycolic acid peels and laser skin treatments".
Another "great revolution" in anti-aging skin care has been in the use of A, C and E vitamins,
as well as group B vitamins and main fatty acids - they all have a special role of agents preventing premature aging.
Of course they do not make miracles, but can support the good condition of the skin.
As skin ages and is repeatedly exposed to harmful UV rays, the level of vitamin A, produced in the body, invariably decreases.
The skin renews itself less quickly and the epidermal layer becomes progressively thinner.
Some of the research of the ingredients, such as vitamin C, was held in 1990s.
In addition, scientists identified two key chemical "helpers" to assist in the delivery of vitamin C through the skin.
Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA), became the first ingredients to affect the skin.
It led to the development of anti-aging products, containing vitamin C and pure Retinol
Further on, a great deal of interest in the anti-oxidants has been shown.
The SUVIMAX studies in France showed that the use of anti-oxidants on the skin slows down the aging process.
It is also possible to reduce lines and improve skin firmness.
Benefits of anti-oxidants were detected in grape seeds extracts.

The scientists have studied different types of skin aging and it means
that they are capable of developing skin care which will effectively abate aging.
It is recognized that 90% of skin damage is caused by external environmental aging.
This includes smoking, wind, chemicals, and, most importantly, UV radiation.
The level of pollution increases so quickly that skin cells can not develop
Free radicals or oxidants are naturally generated in the body as a reaction to the aggression of external,
environmental factors as well as internal factors such as stress and tiredness.
A consequence of this aggression is an acceleration of the skin's aging process.
Most of skin damage is done in the early years and people do not see the results of this
until they are in their forties and fifties.
In the middle of 1990s Estée Lauder has completed research
into understanding more about skin cells losing energy.
Dr. Maes, Vice-President Research and Development, Estée Lauder Worldwide, explains:
"We cannot make the skin look like when it was in youth.
Technologies can decrease the lines by 50%, but we will never decrease them by 100%.
We have studied skin samples and found that its thickness is already decreasing from the age of 20.
In biological terms, if the cells are losing energy they will also lose their ability to
protect themselves against the environment."
In the middle of 1990s manufactures compares skin energy loss with a battery running low
which needs to be "recharged" and next generation of skin nourishers appeared
to be enable skin to tap into a fuel source of bio-available micro-nutrients.
Modern scientific research in skin care and the growing knowledge of the skin's physiology mean
that it is possible to prevent and even repair skin damage which occurs later on in life.
Thus, the latest thinking and research is focused on developing skin protection not from a plain
Sun Protection Factor but from the cells themselves.
The case in point is a new area of cosmetology (Allocosmetics)
and skin care products of modern generation of late 1990s,
which are based on cell extracts
that have lately drawn much attention of scientists.
And finally Cell Cosmeceuticals -
skin care products of the latest generation based on cell extracts:
- Cells can segment themselves and reproduce identical copies,
- Replace old skin cells by new ones of the same type,
- Take part in biochemical skin processes.
This is what we call lifetime self-rejuvenation.
