5 New Global Skincare Ingredients to Look Out For

The beauty universe is buzzing with transformative trends. We support champions adopting multi-functional, timeless, adaptogenic solutions over fleeting fixes. Unmasking the potency of each ingredient, we delve into the harmonious blend of science and nature.

  1. Bisabolol

What’s it about?

Sourced from the tranquillity of chamomile and the Candeia tree of Brazil, Bisabolol stands out with its soothing prowess. This bioactive compound amplifies the skin’s natural healing processes. Scientifically, plant-derived Bisabolol is predominantly in the (L)-alpha-bisabolol active state, making it twice as effective as its synthetic version. Its adaptability lies in enhancing absorption rates and elevating the performance of other skincare components.

Fun Facts:

  • It wields a protective shield against the tyranny of free radicals.
  • Ageing gracefully is a promise, with its skin-brightening capabilities.

  1. Copaiba Oil

What’s it about?

A cherished jewel in Brazilian folk medicine, Copaiba oil beckons as nature’s nod to CBD. Its most notable constituent, beta-caryophyllene, interacts profoundly with our skin’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS oversees homeostasis across bodily functions. By engaging with this system, Copaiba oil not only soothes but also actively contributes to a balance, encompassing mood modulation to skin vitality.

Fun Facts:

  • Its harmonious dance with the skin releases β-endorphin, a natural calming agent.
  • Copaiba’s consistent embrace promises prolonged periods of body balance.
  1. Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA)

What’s it about?

PHAs, the nuanced relatives of alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), present a milder yet effective exfoliating alternative. Scientifically speaking, the larger molecular structure of PHAs, such as gluconolactone and lactobionic acid, restricts their penetration to the skin’s outermost layer. This surface-level interaction minimizes irritation, making it a boon for sensitive skin types. It combines exfoliation with moisturizing effects, giving a dual advantage.

Fun Facts:

  • Gentle on the skin, yet powerfully renewing.
  • Its adaptability makes it ideal for those seeking rejuvenation without an AHA sting.
  1. Blue Green Algae

What’s it about?

You’ll journey back billions of years and find the omnipresent blue-green algae. The blue-green algae’s resilience narrates a story spanning billions of years. As the original oxygen producers, these cyanobacteria, when refined, can rival revered skincare ingredients. Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, an extract, emerges as a natural multivitamin, invigorating skin with vitamins A, E, and B12.

Fun Facts:

  • A historical luminary, it crafted the blueprint for atmospheric oxygen.
  • Post laboratory refinement, these algae unlock rejuvenating treasures for the skin.
  1. Mushrooms

What’s it about?

Mushrooms, celebrated since ancient times, are now scripting a new skincare narrative. Beyond their adaptogenic nature, these fungi, rich in antioxidants, have specific compounds that cater to varied skin needs. For instance, Shiitake mushrooms, with their kojic acid, target hyperpigmentation, while cordyceps, teeming with antioxidants, promote hydration and address inflammation.

Fun Facts:

  • Reishi, the age-defying gem, preserves skin’s youthful vigour.
  • Tremella mushrooms, nature’s hydration heroes, rival even the hydrating prowess of hyaluronic acid.
