Resveratrol, Glutathione, and Cycloastragenol for Skincare
A Powerful Trio for Youthful Radiance
The skincare industry is constantly evolving. With the emergence of clean beauty in the last decade, the quest for natural ingredients that get results is in high demand. The worldwide clean beauty market is expected to reach $14.36 billion by 2028 – an increase from $7.22 billion in 2022! Consumers want skincare that fights signs of aging without harmful chemicals.
This power trio is all natural ingredients with unique properties that are getting real results – and garnering the attention of researchers and companies that want to provide the best natural products to their clients:
Auro Skincare’s Reset and Repair Night Cream incorporates them into its signature product with a powerful adaptogen and antioxidant complex to promote cell turnover to help repair the skin’s appearance overnight.
How can these products turn aging skin around and uncover a youthful and radiant complexion? Let’s dive in!
Spotlight on Resveratrol: The Antioxidant Powerhouse
Antioxidants are essential for skin care, as they neutralize free radicals and protect the skin from oxidative stress, making them an ideal ingredient for promoting skin health. Resveratrol is a unique anti-aging ingredient that is a favorite for battling wrinkles, fine lines, dullness, and uneven skin tone. Found in red wine, grapes, and other berries, this antioxidant has powerful properties.
Not just for anti-aging, Rerservatrol also fights inflammation, which is at the root of skin problems like acne, eczema, and rosacea, calming the skin and helping to reduce and prevent these unwanted skin issues.
Exciting studies show that Resveratrol also protects the skin against UV radiation, which is the leading cause of skin damage.
Glutathione: The Master Antioxidant
Glutathione is a naturally occurring antioxidant produced by the body and is crucial in maintaining overall health. It has been hailed as the “master antioxidant” for its powerful ability to neutralize harmful free radicals and support the immune system.
This mighty detoxifying power makes Glutathione a hero for not just overall health but skin health as well. Maintaining the skin’s natural antioxidant defenses protects it from oxidative stress and environmental damage, which are primary culprits for weathered, aging skin.
Glutathione also supports collagen by protecting the body’s cells from oxidative stress that can damage collagen and other proteins. Collagen production is essential for maintaining skin elasticity, reducing wrinkles and fine lines.
But wait, this skincare superhero does even more: Glutathione evens skin tone and reduces hyperpigmentation by inhibiting the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin color. It does this by a few different mechanisms that all help to reduce the number of melanin-containing cells in the skin.
The delivery is of prime importance for optimizing Glutathione (GSH) absorption. GSH must be delivered to the skin with the correct transdermal uptake due to its huge molecule size, making it hard to deliver the ingredient effectively. The Auro GSH™ Antioxidant Delivery System infuses the skin with this powerful antioxidant in a cutting-edge way: sub-nano technology – so that it can reach the inner layers of the skin, making it much more efficient with better absorbancy – and more potent for fighting the very things that age skin.
Cycloastragenol: The Telomerase Activator
Cycloastragenol, newer on the skincare scene, is a natural ingredient from the Astragalus plant that is getting lots of attention for its role in promoting healthy skin.
Here’s why – it starts with telomeres, the protective caps on the end of each chromosome in our cells that play a critical role in maintaining the stability and integrity of our genetic material. These telomeres become shorter and less effective with age. Accelerated shortening means accelerated aging and sickness and reduced cellular and tissue function.
For the skin, the shortened telomeres may impair the function of skin cells and reduce their ability to repair the damage, leading to a decline in skin elasticity and firmness and the onset of wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots.
Cycloastragenol supports cellular health and longevity by promoting telomerase activity, and it has been shown to protect telomeres from damage caused by oxidative stress, inflammation, and other factors. It’s also been shown to promote cell proliferation, which can help maintain the health and function of tissues and organs, contributing to overall health and longevity. This action is shown to protect the skin from UV radiation, pollution, and other stressors as cycloastragenol helps slow the process of telomere shortening and enhancing the skin’s natural repair processes, improving overall skin health and texture.
Incorporating Resveratrol, Glutathione, and Cycloastragenol into Your Skincare Routine
To harness the benefits of these potent natural ingredients for skincare, look for products that contain high-quality, stable forms of these compounds. Their effectiveness can be diminished if not properly formulated and stored.
Auro Skincare’s Reset and Repair Night Cream incorporates these potent antioxidants and telomerase activators to support your skin’s natural defenses, promote cellular health, and achieve a more youthful, radiant complexion.
Auro’s Dr. Nayan Patel’s decades of research have led to developing the Auro GSH™ Antioxidant Delivery System. This patented, first-of-its-kind technology optimizes antioxidant absorption and efficacy as the delivery system infuses the skin with powerful ingredients in a cutting-edge way: sub-nano technology – so they can reach the inner layers of the skin for better absorption and brighter, glowing, younger-looking skin.
