Anti-Aging Skin Care Products
The Evolution

Anti-Aging Skin Care Products 1
Anti-Aging Skin Products has gained quite a bit of attention during the last 10 years as concern for skin rejuvenation increases.

Developments within this category were influenced by many factors:

  • Competition among the major brands
  • Introduction of new technologies 
  • New ingredients
  • Worldwide increase in demand for the so-called "rejuvenating cosmetics"

Clearly, people have no intentions of putting up with aging.

Today they are turning to alternative therapies and anti-aging products skin care products; however, they will not spend money on products which do not produce the wished results.

The first anti-aging skin care products appeared during the late 1980s.

The first liposome ingredient delivery system was part of first generation anti-aging skin care products.

David Jago, an expert in the market analysis for MINTEL, evaluates the changes, which have taken place since then: "At present, the special properties, ingredients and benefits of the anti-aging skin care products are clearly shown on the label. In the late 1980s, it was only said that those products were firming, softening the skin, reducing lines etc., but their functional ingredients were usually not disclosed.

The evolution of anti-aging Ingredients

Today's press often informs us of specific ingredients and their benefits, thus contributing to the consumers' education. As a result, there appeared a category of anti-aging skin care products intended for specific age groups or needs. Usually, women aim at making their aging skin look younger, or their young skin healthier.

Then the Revolution. . .

Sally Penford, of the International Dermal Institute, a postgraduate training school for therapists, comments: "It stimulated women to start considering cosmetic surgery, glycolic acid peels and laser skin treatments".

Another "great revolution" in antiaging 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, constantly decreases. The skin renewal processes slow down and the epidermal layer becomes progressively thinner.

Some of the research of the ingredients, such as vitamin C, was held in 1990s. Further, scientists identified two key chemical "helpers" to assist in the delivery of vitamin C through the skin.

A research into more effective facial rejuvenation methods continued the evolution of a new range of anti-aging products emerged.
