While many anti-aging ingredients are created in research labs, often the best ones have been derived from a natural source. Since sea life needs to withstand harsh environments, from the heat of the sun to the salt water to the extreme weather conditions, certain species have evolved in ways that allow for them to be better protected, with the same properties also having a similar effect on human skin. OROGOLD takes a look at some of the best anti-aging ingredients that come from the ocean.
Although usually consumed as a luxurious delicacy, caviar also has many significant benefits when applied topically to the skin. The tiny, gleaming fish eggs are packed with amino acids and different vitamins, which are basically the building blocks for healthy skin cells. For a high quality, effective caviar skin care line, take a look at the OROGOLD 24K Caviar Collection, comprised of four decadent products that make the most of the positive effects that caviar has on the skin.
High in vitamins C and E, seaweed is able to not only protect the skin from UV damage, but also boosts the production of collagen, which, in turn, reduces the visible signs of aging. In addition to this, seaweed also contains certain nutrients that reduces inflammation and redness, soothing the skin, and is a great ingredient for those suffering from rosacea or acne to use. Again, OROGOLD has long since recognized the skin care potentials of seaweed, and our 24K Collagen and Seaweed Mask is the perfect way to treat your skin with this nutritious ocean ingredient.
Fish proteins consist of amino acids and peptides that have been derived from fish, and have been shown to boost the production of collagen in the skin, as well as strengthen the hair and nails. Studies have been carried out on the way in which these proteins boost the production of collagen, and it was discovered that the amino acids and peptides are able to increase skin density, which helps to keep away certain problems associated with aging, such as wrinkles and sagging skin.
Sea fennel is an edible plant that mostly grows along the Mediterranean coastlines, and was used extensively in ancient Greek medicine, even making its way into Greek mythology. Sea fennel is extremely high in chlorogenic acid, which is an antioxidant compound that helps to fight off the free radicals that contribute to damaged skin cells and increased aging. Doctors have also recognized that sea fennel has the ability to lighten areas of the skin in which excessive pigmentation has occurred.
As you can see, many of the most powerful anti-aging ingredients are derived from the sea. Whether they are peptides derived from fish, or sea fennel picked on a Mediterranean coastline, these ingredients are increasingly appearing in skin care products, and will help those of you that are looking for a natural source of anti-aging ingredients.
