What Does Skin Identical Mean?

Posted on

Including skin identical ingredients into your daily routine is one if the best things you can do for your skin, increasing the skin’s ability to renew, refine and repair for an age-defiant complexion.

Skin identical ingredients are essentially compounds that mimic the composition of naturally occurring elements found within the skin. These ingredients offer the increased ability to effect change in the skin and improve the skin’s ability to maintain a smooth, flawless surface.

Since skin identical ingredients are found naturally within the skin, they are instantly recognised when applied topically. The skin knows exactly how to use these ingredients, putting them to work and utilising them in an efficient manner. Skin identical ingredients are especially useful for those with sensitive skin, as there is a far smaller chance of any skin reactions occurring due to the fact that they are recognised by the body.

Assisting with balancing the intercellular matrix, skin identical ingredients help to keep skin cells connected, ensure they are communicating with one another correctly and help to keep the external structure of the skin looking healthy, smooth and clear.

One of the most powerful skin identical ingredients is hyaluronic acid. This molecule is found in small amounts within the skin, helping to keep the outer wall of cells moisturised. Hyaluronic acid is an absolute saviour for those with dry skin, holding up to 1000 times its own weight in water.

When the skin lacks moisture, often the outer barrier can become compromised. As a result, dryness and irritation can occur. In this state, winkles, fine lines and other textural imperfections are more likely to appear. 

We utilise a vegan sugar-derived form of hyaluronic acid in our Immortelle Vitamin B3 Serum to rebalance and hydrate the skin, refining the surface for a smoother complexion.

Another skin identical ingredient that we recommend including in your daily routine is squalane. Few other ingredients are as nourishing and restorative as this light, clear oil. This hydrating plant-derived oil locks in moisture and strengthens the skin’s surface, fortifying it against pollution, oxidative stress and free radical damage.

Introduce a plant-based form of squalane into your skincare routine with our Ecdysis Bio-Ferment Enzyme Cleanse, a luxury cleanser that incorporates an array of intelligent ingredients to sweep away all traces of makeup, pollution and impurities, as well as gently exfoliate the skin for an instantly brighter and rehydrated complexion.

Skin identical ingredients are a wonderful way to improve the overall appearance of your skin and protect it against an array of imperfection causing agents, from UV radiation to pollution.
