Active components of common functional cosmetics
Jun 11, 2018

Common functional cosmetics are active ingredients, vitamins, lipids, moisturizers, plant medicinal materials, metals, stripping agents, peptides, antioxidants, sunscreens, etc.

Vitamin and plant functional cosmetics rarely cause contact dermatitis and are widely used.

Amino acids, as the surfactants of cleansing products, have become the focus of attention. They are clean and have good moisturizing power and do not cause damage to the skin.

Moisturizer: helps repair skin barrier, also can be used as sunscreen agent, other active matrix.

Hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronic acid or Hyalu ronic Acid (HA), is a chain like polymer acid mucopolysaccharide. It has a good moisturizing effect, which can keep the skin with appropriate hygroscopic degree, that is, it is not too hygroscopic at high humidity, and it can be fully hygroscopic under low humidity.

Whitening use of cosmetics materials, mainly inhibiting the production of melanin, reducing melanin, promoting the excretion of melanin in the epidermis, and the selective toxicity of melanin cells.

Arbutin inhibits tyrosinase activity or inhibits its biosynthesis, and the inhibition of melanin formation is reversible and does not occur in leukoplakia, which has been confirmed to be very safe.

Kojic acid is mainly produced by filamentous fungi such as Aspergillus and Penicillium, and is a compound containing technical topics - functional cosmetics market. The inhibitory effect of kojic acid on melanin formation has been confirmed by in vitro and in vivo tests. Tyrosinase activity was strongly inhibited in vitro. In the body (upper) test, the double blind method was used to test the inhibition of pigmentation after ultraviolet irradiation on the 3% and no kooic acid O cream cream. The male effective rate was 90.3% and the female was 75.5%. Clinical trials have also confirmed that the cream with 1% kojic acid has a 95.5% effective rate for liver plaques and is especially effective for senile plaques.

Antioxidants, peptides, growth factors, etc., can prevent and reverse exogenous and endogenous aging of skin.

Peptides, composed of 2--100 amino acids, have different effects on promoting lymphatic circulation, antioxidation, antiglycification, smoothing of dynamic lines, static lines and fine lines, and promoting collagen production.
