Definitions in Cosmetics
The study of organic, or carbon based, molecules. Carbon is the only element
that can make bonds with itself so that chains are produced, silicon has similar
properties, but Carbon is a main element in everyday life, and thus, is lucky
enough to have a whole subject in chemistry dedicated to it.
In cosmetic manufacturing we apply the principles of organic chemistry to
produce many high quality custom formulations.
Anti Aging Ingredients and benefits
Many anti-wrinkle creams and cleansers contain some form of retinol
which in various formulations has been shown to give a “rejuvenating” appearance
to the skin, in that it stimulates the renewal of skin cells and reduces dark
spots. Alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids have a peeling effect when
used as chemical peels.
Most new formulations use some of the following ingredients for the benefits
to allow the natural production of collagen
skin’s structure and visibly lifts skin
Wrinkle creams, anti aging creams, stretch mark creams
are cosmetic products that are claimed, primarily by those within the
cosmetic industry, to have additional or extra benefits. Examples of products
typically labeled as cosmeceuticals include anti-aging creams and moisturizers.
The word is a portmanteau of the words “cosmetic” and “pharmaceutical”. Kindly
note that the FDA does not recognize the term cosmeceuticals.
Cosmeceuticals may contain purported active ingredients such as vitamins,
phytochemicals, enzymes, antioxidants, and essential oils.
is a spherical vesicle composed of a bilayer membrane. In biology, this
specifically refers to a membrane composed of a phospholipid and cholesterol
bilayer Liposomes can be composed of naturally-derived phospholipids with mixed
chains (like egg phosphatidylethanolamine . Liposomes, usually but not
by definition, contain a core of aqueous solution.
The name liposome is derived from two Greek words ‘Lipid’ meaning fat and
‘Soma’ meaning body.
Coenzyme Q10 (also known as ubiquinone, ubidecarenone, coenzyme Q and
abbreviated at times to CoQ10,CoQ, Q10 or Q) is a benzoquinone, where the “Q”
and the “10” in the name refer to the quinone chemical group and the 10
isoprenyl chemical subunits, respectively.
This vitamin-like substance is, by nature, present in all human cells and
responsible for the production of the bodyâ€™s own energy. In each human cell
food energy is converted into energy for our body in the mitochondria with the
aid of CoQ10. 95% of all our bodyâ€™s energy requirements (ATP) is converted
with the aid of CoQ10.
We add this ingredient to many topical products & natural formulations.
is a form of vitamin A. It is a fat-soluble, antioxidant vitamin. It belongs to
the family of chemical compounds known as retinoids
Used in anti aging and acne creams
All retinoid forms of vitamin A are used in cosmetic and medical applications
applied to the skin. Retinoic acid, termed Tretinoin in clinical usage, is used
in the treatment of acne and keratosis pilaris in a topical cream. In cosmetics,
vitamin A derivatives are used as anti-aging chemicals- vitamin A is absorbed
through the skin and increases the rate of skin turnover, and gives an increase
in collagen giving a more youthful appearance.
