Have you ever wondered, how deep the skin care products reach after apply them?

Have you ever wondered, how deep the skin care products reach after apply them?

In search of an ever newer product, the active substance, we forget that, in fact, a small amount is able to get into the dermis. Even if research in vitro show us this ingredients as active, this does not mean that when we apply it to our skin they will do it.

The skin consists of 3 main layers

1. EPIDERMIS - this additionally consists of 4-5 layers (depends on the place on the body) and the one we see is the outermost layer called the stratum corneum. This part is already dead. Most of your cosmetics stop at this "dead part". And don't think now that if it's dead it's bad. It is a protective barrier, it helps your skin function properly.
2. ERMDERMIS (dermis) consists of elastin and collagen fibers, among others. 85-90% is collagen type I, 8-11% type III, 2-4% type V.
3. SKIN TISSUE


In fact, few cosmetics are able to reach the dermis, but they can do so, among others:
-retinoids
-vitamin C in the form of ascorbic acid when it is at a low enough pH
-acids with very low ph
-caffeine
- some preservatives.

If you see changes after 1, 2 or 3 uses, the cosmetic has acted on the epidermis. Acids such as AHA or PHA or vitamin C do it perfectly.
Changes in the dermis, the production of new collagen we see at the earliest after half a year, often even after a year.

New technologies such as encapsulation, liposomes allow to overcome stratum corneum, but the component remains in the epidermis

More recent research after 2015 suggest that cells from the epidermis can communicate with cells from the dermis and this can lead to the production of new collagen by fibroblasts (via the received signal). However, not too many substances can do it. Such ingredients potentially include hyaluronic acid with smaller molecules, peptides, and growth factors.

Among the best
When reflecting on the subject of luxury, it is worth recalling that Dr Irena Eris is the only Polish brand to be accepted as one of the European members of Comité Colbert. COMITÉ COLBERT is the oldest, founded in 1954 by Jean-Jacques Guerlain, organization which affiliates the best French companies and institutions synonymous with the concept of luxury. The values followed by the association are: the creative process, communication, respect for consumers, impeccable service and beautiful design of the product. Its members include among others Cartier, Chanel, Dior, Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Louvre or the Ritz Hotel. In 2011 for the first time the club accepted non-French brands from Europe. Currently, Comité Colbert affiliates 81 luxury brands and 14 cultural institutions, including Dr Irena Eris as the only Polish brand. It was recognized for having international ambitions, innovation, ethics and high quality products, but also for its values and communication language.
What to eat
Michael Pollan’s golden rule says: “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” We may also add — and cook it yourself.
Skin care facts and myths - Part II
Did you hear that you should switch up your face cream frequently because your skin is getting used to it? We often unconsciously live by such commonly repeated words of wisdom, without even thinking whether there is any evidence to support them. There are many unverified theories concerning body care which are repeated by generations and have nothing to do with reality. Therefore, you should always check the facts and get to know specialists’ opinions to make sure that you’re using your beauty products safely and effectively.
