Anti-Aging Ingredients


Allantoin is clinically proven to be effective and found as a common ingredient in many skin rejuvenation products. Its major benefits are found to be healing properties, skin repair, regeneration of skin cells, anti-inflammatory characteristics, and the ability to smooth the surface of the skin.

Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHA):

Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHA) are among the few anti-aging treatments that have been repeatedly clinically proven highly effective. The AHA's include glycolic acid found in products like Abkit's AHA/BHA 12% Glycolic Treatment, lactic acid, tartaric acid, malic acid, and citric acid.

AHA's are primarily exfoliants, but they also stimulate skin repair, increase collagen production, increase skin thickness, improve elasticity, are an effective acne treatment, improve skin texture, improve skin tone and decrease enlarged pores.

Alpha Lipoic Acid:

Preliminary anti-aging treatment studies on alpha lipoic acid indicate a great deal of promise as an effective antioxidant which can repair sun damaged skin, provide protection to the skin, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone, and decrease large pores. Included as an active ingredient in many combination moisturizing products.

Beta Hydroxy Acids (Salicylic Acid):

Proven clinically as effective as the AHA's, beta hydroxy salicylic acid or BHA is an exfoliant that also improves skin texture, tone and acne. It is generally considered to be an alternative to AHA, and particularly beneficial for oily skin types. For an effective product, look for concentrations of
1 % to 2 %
like Reviva Labs Beta-Hydroxy Acid 2%.

Coenzyme Q-10 (Ubiquinone):

Promising preliminary research indicates Co-Q10 is an effective antioxidant that repairs sun damaged skin, energizes new cell growth, possess firming properties, and smooths skin. CoQ-10 is extremely reasonably priced, like Avalon's Co-Q10 Wrinkle Defense Cream or Serum and products from the Nivea line which are readily available at most larger retail stores. 


Promising preliminary research on collagen indicates increased skin hydration, firming and plumping properties while improving fine lines and wrinkles. A word of caution, formulations need to be very specific in order to allow for adequate absorption into the skin.

Copper Peptides:

Promising preliminary research demonstrates qualities that include firming properties, enhances the skin's protective ability, an antioxidant, healing properties, stimulates collagen formation, improves the skin's elasticity, and promotes elastin production. The Neova line is a particular favorite, and Neutrogena has also begun to produce a line of Copper Peptide products.

Be careful not to layer with Vitamin C anti-aging ingredients as you will neutralize the effects of both treatments. Schedule each skin rejuvenation treatment at different times of the day.


Not clinically proven effective as a topical cream although it is believed to improve skin texture. This is a growth hormone which is typically taken as a nutritional supplement.

DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol):

Although anti-aging treatment studies on DMAE have not been extensive, the results demonstrate positive rejuvenating effects in skin firming properties, the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, improving moisture content, and in improving sagging skin.
