As anti-ageing solutions continue to lead the way in the cosmetics industry, Pharmaceutical & Cosmetic Review lifts the lid on some of the most recent innovations surrounding active ingredients with a focus on plant extracts and botanical concentrates.
As with everything in our life, skin care should be age appropriate. Skin needs different care at various stages of our life. Lachemi has launched a new range of Powerful Natural Serums, made of 100 per cent natural plant-derived ingredients loaded with botanical extracts, natural antioxidants, naturally occurring vitamins, enzymes etc. These serums have composition similar to that of sebum and triglycerides found in skin, and hence are easily absorbed by the skin. Their success is based on the fact that they rectify the skin problem internally by providing the needs of the skin and activating the body to repair itself. Lachemi offers Active Agents for every age bracket, enabling the creation of tailor-made skin care products.
Ageing can be a progressive decline in mental and physical ability, accompanied by an increase in susceptibility to chronic disease.
Humankind has long sought ways to slow or retard the ageing process. Given the vast number of ageing baby boomers in our society, the relevance of anti-ageing medicine looms ever larger. Are the effects of ageing inevitable? Taken in the broadest and most positive light, anti-ageing medicine is an extension of preventative healthcare.
Anti-ageing creams are mainly moisturiser-based products that claim to reduce visible wrinkles, expression lines, blemishes, pigmentation changes, discolourations and other environmentally-related conditions of the skin.
A grading scale for anti-ageing of the skin categorises it as: laxity (sagging), rhytids (wrinkles) and the various categories of photo-ageing, including erythema (redness), dyspigmentation (brown discolourations), solar elastosis (yellowing), keratoses (abnormal growths) and poor texture.
Cellular ageing is one of the many inevitable consequences that time plays on human beings.
As age increases, the body’s metabolism reacts by slowing down certain processes and accelerating others. Among the most visible signs of the passage of time on the human body, skin ageing, has been a source of constant struggle.
Over the years, there have been a myriad of techniques aimed at stopping those feared wrinkles and age spots on the dermis. Cosmetics and the use of certain aggressive techniques have wide acceptance worldwide.
