Moisturizers were invented to combat sun damage, which causes the skin to dry out, crack, and age quicker. Moisturizers have evolved over the years, but recently have gone back to their original roots by incorporating ingredients that were being used many years ago in the skin care industry again. Shea butter, aloe vera, and peptides are each making a big difference in modern moisturizers.
Shea butter is extremely nourishing and moisturizing for the skin thanks to its concentration of natural vitams and fatty acids. It is often used as a remedy for dry skin because of its ability to shield and protect skin's natural oils. Shea butter contains acids (oleic, stearic, palmitic, and linolenic) that help to retain moisture and prevent the skin from drying. Shea butter also promotes cell regeneration and aids in the skin's natural collagen production, making it perfect for treating
Aloe vera has been used for centuries. Ancient Greeks, Egyptians, and Romans described its use in their writings, with the earliest known record on a Sumerian tablet dating from 2100 B.C.E. Egyptian Queens associated its use with physical beauty. Aloe vera is moisturizing without being greasy, which makes it suitable for clients with an oily skin complexion. Aloe vera gel is 98.5 percent water, and the remaining 1.5 percent is over 200 nutrients that soothe, nourish, and moisturize the skin.
Peptides occur naturally in the body and are formed by chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of skin proteins. The most infamous protein naturally found in the skin, that diminishes naturally as we age, is collagen. Making up 75 percent of the skin, collagen is responsible for maintaining the thick, supple, taut appearance of skin. Peptides have the incredible ability to signal cells to make more collagen and repair damaged cell structures, which improves elasticity, moisture, and smoothness.
