As we age our skin is is damage by free radicals. Antioxidants protect our skin against the damage caused by these radicals. They prevent further damage and slow the ageing process. Whilst we can not ‘reverse the signs of ageing’, as many cosmetic companies claim to do, we can improve the texture of the skin making it appear smoother and more radiant.
There is a plethora of creams produced by the cosmetic industry which claim to smooth the skin and eliminate wrinkles. Each company claiming to have produced the ‘miracle cream’. Unfortunately, many of these creams are produced as a result of fads and crazes with little research to substantiate their claims.
There are currently several ingredients which exhibit impressive, well researched, substantiated results in the fight against wrinkles. Below are a list of common ingredients used by our compounding specialists to formulate effective face creams. They are available for purchase as ready made creams or can be tailored to suit you individual skin type. Several ingredients may be incorporated into the one cream which will decrease the need for multiple cream applications and significantly reduce costs.
