Scientific Explanation

⚪ The Skin
The skin is a complex organ with many layers. Its structure is designed to minimize moisture loss from the body while preventing foreign materials from entering. To accomplish these functions, the skin must have a protective covering of lipids, or oil-soluble molecules. Exposure to everyday conditions can strip the skin of its protective lipid covering.

⚜ The skin is made up of three main layers : the epidermis, the dermis, and the hypodermis.
As the deepest layer of skin, the hypodermis contains a layer of fat. It also houses blood vessels and nerves that are generally larger than those found in the dermis layer.
Within the dermis lie the blood vessels, nerves, and hair shafts, as well as sweat and sebaceous glands. The sebaceous glands produce an oily substance called sebum and secrete it into the hair shaft. Sebum migrates up to the top of the skin through the hair shaft, where it covers the outer layer of the epidermis, providing a protective barrier for the skin from the outside world. It consists of fatty acids, cholesterol, waxes, triglycerides, and a variety of other substances. A small coating of sebum will protect the skin effectively. An excess of sebum leads to overly oily skin and can cause acne.
Within the epidermis are multiple sublayers. On the very surface of the epidermis lies a layer of fat. Just beneath the fat is a layer of cornified cells, called the stratum corneum. Beneath the cornified cells lies the horny layer, which consists of three sublayers. At the bottom of the epidermis lies the basal layer, where cells are created. These cells then migrate up through the layers of the skin all the way to the stratum corneum, where they fall off the body. This upward cell movement helps defend the skin from harmful invaders by acting like ocean current, moving foreign debris up and out of the skin.

⚪ Why the Skin Needs Moisturizers
The epidermis is most relevant to this discussion, since cosmetic products target the cells in that section and are generally not able to migrate past it into the dermis. Most cosmetic products that claim to improve the skin’s appearance and texture act on the stratum corneum layer of the epidermis because it is the outermost layer of the skin — when it is scaly, the skin appears rougher. These products often fill in gaps between the cornified cells of the stratum corneum, creating the appearance of smoother skin. They may also serve as occlusives, meaning that they create a barrier on the skin through which water can not permeate. It may seem disadvantageous to apply such a barrier to the skin because it would prevent the skin from absorbing water in the air. The water content inside the skin, however, is generally much higher than that of the air. The moisture content in the stratum corneum should be about 15%. The water content increases deeper in the skin, reaching about 80% in the dermis. Therefore, in the absence of a barrier, water is much more likely to leave the skin than to enter it. Applying a barrier helps the skin retain more water.

In a perfect world, skin would be able to keep itself hydrated. In reality, however, irritants such as harsh cleansing products and excess exposure to environmental elements can upset the skin’s natural balance by removing its lipids. When these protective oil-based products in the skin are removed, the effectiveness of its barrier decreases. Water can evaporate from the skin more easily. This problem is further compounded by the fact that the resulting water loss will decrease the barrier’s ability even more.
Water is necessary for the skin to maintain its flexibility; when skin is overly dry, it loses its ability to stretch, causing it to crack and peel more easily. Faster peeling means skin cells are being shed more rapidly, which triggers an increase in the rate of cell production in the basal layer. When the process of cell growth, migration, and shedding is accelerated, the barrier is significantly weakened because the cells providing the barrier have not had time to fully mature. Generally, as the cells rise to the surface of the skin, they lose all their components except their protein skeleton structure. It is this layer of protein which provides the barrier against water loss. When the process of cell turnover is sped up, the cells reach the top of the skin before they have completely flattened and lost the rest of their components. These immature cells cannot prevent water from moving across them as well as the older ones can. Therefore, water is lost from the skin at a faster rate, and the skin is less able to defend against foreign invaders.

However, water alone will not increase the skin’s moisture level. It can easily evaporate off the surface of the skin. A protective lipid coating is necessary to prevent water from evaporating off the skin. A good moisturizer must be able to supplement this barrier with the incorporation of hydrophobic components. Ideally, a product will not provide a completely occlusive barrier for the skin, but will offer partial protection. By partially protecting the skin from the air, a product will not interfere with the epidermis’ ability to manufacture its own lipids to restore the stratum corneum’s natural barrier function. This way an improved barrier function will still be observed after the product is removed. Therefore, it is important that moisturizers have an oil component. However, oil-based formulas are messy and awkward to use, so moisturizers are generally water-based with some hydrophobic components incorporated.

⚪ The unique herbal ingredients present in this product are renowned for their anti-inflammatory properties which help to soothe sensitive skin, and for their potential to combat skin aging. They are known to suppress histamine release at very low doses, helping to plump up the skin, reduce wrinkles, and restore the skin natural barrier. They include the main group of active polyphenolic antioxidants responsible for anti-inflammatory, antierythema, antipruritic and antihistaminic properties. Another antiaging benefit is their antigenotoxic activity, which can protect the DNA of epidermal cells against environmental insults, including UV radiation. Vitamin E is a lipophilic antioxidant and has a primary role in protecting cell membranes against oxidative stress and maintaining the collagen network in the skin. Its levels are rapidly depleted after UV exposure which promotes skin aging.
Skin aging is the result of both intrinsic aging due to the passage of time and extrinsic aging as a consequence of environmental damage, primarily due to ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Chronologically aged skin exhibits fine wrinkles, is thin, relatively flattened, dry and unblemished with some loss of elasticity. It exhibits a general atrophy of the extracellular matrix, which is reflected by a decrease in the number of fibroblasts. Furthermore, there are reduced levels of collagen and elastin, and their organization is impaired due to the decreased protein synthesis of types I and III collagen in the dermis and an increased breakdown of extracellular matrix proteins.

Aging is accelerated in skin exposed to UV radiation, a process known as photoaging. The fine wrinkles and reduced elasticity which characterize intrinsically aged skin are exaggerated in photoaged skin, with the development of deep wrinkles and a marked loss of elasticity, dryness, roughness and dyspigmentation as well as an increased epidermal thickness and alterations in connective tissue organization. Impairment of collagen and elastin organization is typically more severe in photoaged skin compared with chronologically aged skin.

⚜ This product contains niacinamide, also known as nicotinamide or nicotinic acid amide, which is a water-soluble, active form of vitamin B3 and an integral part of the coenzymes nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and NAD phosphate (NADPH). In clinical trials, a significant improvement in skin appearance, including reductions in fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmented spots, red blotchiness and skin sallowness, as well as improved elasticity was found following application of 5% niacinamide for 12 weeks in women. In another clinical trial, application of 4% niacinamide in Japanese women for 8 weeks resulted in a significant decrease in wrinkles and skin roughness.

The antiwrinkling effects of niacinamide may be explained by the fact that niacinamide increases collagen production, an effect that is also relevant to other antiwrinkle agents, such as all-trans retinoic acid. Niacinamide reduces the increase in excess dermal glycosaminoglycans that is a characteristic of photodamaged or wrinkled skin. Niacinamide also modulates yellowing (sallowness) of the skin by an inhibition of protein glycation via antioxidant effects. Niacinamide increases both the lipid (ceramide) and protein (keratin, involucrin, filaggrin) components of the skin barrier and enhances the skin barrier properties, which may improve red blotchiness. Further, niacinamide has been demonstrated to inhibit melanosome transfer from melanocytes to keratinocytes and promote skin lightening in vivo. The mechanism by which elasticity improves is attributed to dermal remodeling (as evidenced by the observed increases in skin collagen) and prevention of dermal matrix glycation.

They include the main group of active polyphenolic antioxidants responsible for anti-inflammatory, antierythema, antipruritic and antihistaminic properties. Another antiaging benefit is their antigenotoxic activity, which can protect the DNA of epidermal cells against environmental insults, including UV radiation. Vitamin E is a lipophilic antioxidant and has a primary role in protecting cell membranes against oxidative stress and maintaining the collagen network in the skin. Its levels are rapidly depleted after UV exposure which promotes skin aging.
Skin aging is the result of both intrinsic aging due to the passage of time and extrinsic aging as a consequence of environmental damage, primarily due to ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Chronologically aged skin exhibits fine wrinkles, is thin, relatively flattened, dry and unblemished with some loss of elasticity. It exhibits a general atrophy of the extracellular matrix, which is reflected by a decrease in the number of fibroblasts. Furthermore, there are reduced levels of collagen and elastin, and their organization is impaired due to the decreased protein synthesis of types I and III collagen in the dermis and an increased breakdown of extracellular matrix proteins.

Aging is accelerated in skin exposed to UV radiation, a process known as photoaging. The fine wrinkles and reduced elasticity which characterize intrinsically aged skin are exaggerated in photoaged skin, with the development of deep wrinkles and a marked loss of elasticity, dryness, roughness and dyspigmentation as well as an increased epidermal thickness and alterations in connective tissue organization. Impairment of collagen and elastin organization is typically more severe in photoaged skin compared with chronologically aged skin.

⚜ This product contains niacinamide, also known as nicotinamide or nicotinic acid amide, which is a water-soluble, active form of vitamin B3 and an integral part of the coenzymes nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and NAD phosphate (NADPH). In clinical trials, a significant improvement in skin appearance, including reductions in fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmented spots, red blotchiness and skin sallowness, as well as improved elasticity was found following application of 5% niacinamide for 12 weeks in women. In another clinical trial, application of 4% niacinamide in Japanese women for 8 weeks resulted in a significant decrease in wrinkles and skin roughness.

The antiwrinkling effects of niacinamide may be explained by the fact that niacinamide increases collagen production, an effect that is also relevant to other antiwrinkle agents, such as all-trans retinoic acid. Niacinamide reduces the increase in excess dermal glycosaminoglycans that is a characteristic of photodamaged or wrinkled skin. Niacinamide also modulates yellowing (sallowness) of the skin by an inhibition of protein glycation via antioxidant effects. Niacinamide increases both the lipid (ceramide) and protein (keratin, involucrin, filaggrin) components of the skin barrier and enhances the skin barrier properties, which may improve red blotchiness. Further, niacinamide has been demonstrated to inhibit melanosome transfer from melanocytes to keratinocytes and promote skin lightening in vivo. The mechanism by which elasticity improves is attributed to dermal remodeling (as evidenced by the observed increases in skin collagen) and prevention of dermal matrix glycation.

Scientific Explanation

⚪ The Skin
The skin is a complex organ with many layers. Its structure is designed to minimize moisture loss from the body while preventing foreign materials from entering. To accomplish these functions, the skin must have a protective covering of lipids, or oil-soluble molecules. Exposure to everyday conditions can strip the skin of its protective lipid covering.

⚜ The skin is made up of three main layers : the epidermis, the dermis, and the hypodermis.
As the deepest layer of skin, the hypodermis contains a layer of fat. It also houses blood vessels and nerves that are generally larger than those found in the dermis layer.
Within the dermis lie the blood vessels, nerves, and hair shafts, as well as sweat and sebaceous glands. The sebaceous glands produce an oily substance called sebum and secrete it into the hair shaft. Sebum migrates up to the top of the skin through the hair shaft, where it covers the outer layer of the epidermis, providing a protective barrier for the skin from the outside world. It consists of fatty acids, cholesterol, waxes, triglycerides, and a variety of other substances. A small coating of sebum will protect the skin effectively. An excess of sebum leads to overly oily skin and can cause acne.
Within the epidermis are multiple sublayers. On the very surface of the epidermis lies a layer of fat. Just beneath the fat is a layer of cornified cells, called the stratum corneum. Beneath the cornified cells lies the horny layer, which consists of three sublayers. At the bottom of the epidermis lies the basal layer, where cells are created. These cells then migrate up through the layers of the skin all the way to the stratum corneum, where they fall off the body. This upward cell movement helps defend the skin from harmful invaders by acting like ocean current, moving foreign debris up and out of the skin.

⚪ Why the Skin Needs Moisturizers
The epidermis is most relevant to this discussion, since cosmetic products target the cells in that section and are generally not able to migrate past it into the dermis. Most cosmetic products that claim to improve the skin’s appearance and texture act on the stratum corneum layer of the epidermis because it is the outermost layer of the skin — when it is scaly, the skin appears rougher. These products often fill in gaps between the cornified cells of the stratum corneum, creating the appearance of smoother skin. They may also serve as occlusives, meaning that they create a barrier on the skin through which water can not permeate. It may seem disadvantageous to apply such a barrier to the skin because it would prevent the skin from absorbing water in the air. The water content inside the skin, however, is generally much higher than that of the air. The moisture content in the stratum corneum should be about 15%. The water content increases deeper in the skin, reaching about 80% in the dermis. Therefore, in the absence of a barrier, water is much more likely to leave the skin than to enter it. Applying a barrier helps the skin retain more water.

In a perfect world, skin would be able to keep itself hydrated. In reality, however, irritants such as harsh cleansing products and excess exposure to environmental elements can upset the skin’s natural balance by removing its lipids. When these protective oil-based products in the skin are removed, the effectiveness of its barrier decreases. Water can evaporate from the skin more easily. This problem is further compounded by the fact that the resulting water loss will decrease the barrier’s ability even more.
Water is necessary for the skin to maintain its flexibility; when skin is overly dry, it loses its ability to stretch, causing it to crack and peel more easily. Faster peeling means skin cells are being shed more rapidly, which triggers an increase in the rate of cell production in the basal layer. When the process of cell growth, migration, and shedding is accelerated, the barrier is significantly weakened because the cells providing the barrier have not had time to fully mature. Generally, as the cells rise to the surface of the skin, they lose all their components except their protein skeleton structure. It is this layer of protein which provides the barrier against water loss. When the process of cell turnover is sped up, the cells reach the top of the skin before they have completely flattened and lost the rest of their components. These immature cells cannot prevent water from moving across them as well as the older ones can. Therefore, water is lost from the skin at a faster rate, and the skin is less able to defend against foreign invaders.

However, water alone will not increase the skin’s moisture level. It can easily evaporate off the surface of the skin. A protective lipid coating is necessary to prevent water from evaporating off the skin. A good moisturizer must be able to supplement this barrier with the incorporation of hydrophobic components. Ideally, a product will not provide a completely occlusive barrier for the skin, but will offer partial protection. By partially protecting the skin from the air, a product will not interfere with the epidermis’ ability to manufacture its own lipids to restore the stratum corneum’s natural barrier function. This way an improved barrier function will still be observed after the product is removed. Therefore, it is important that moisturizers have an oil component. However, oil-based formulas are messy and awkward to use, so moisturizers are generally water-based with some hydrophobic components incorporated.
