Skin identical ingredients, also known as skin repairing ingredients, are those found naturally in your skin. Most skin care products, even though labeled natural or organic, are not necessarily made up of skin identical ingredients—they may include oils that have been chemically modified for stability and are no longer skin identical.
At maxandjane, we use truly pure products that topically provide what your body is not producing for your skin’s health. These products are also known as chirally correct. Our body’s skin repairing ingredients are found naturally between our skin’s cells, known as the intercellular matrix. These natural substances keep skin cells connected and support the skin’s external structure, fight environmental stresses, and help retain a youthful appearance for the skin.
The outermost layer of skin is made up of ceramides, fatty acids and cholesterol. This layer helps to hold moisture and provide a natural barrier to bacteria, viruses and pollution. When the outer layer of skin becomes compromised, you develop very dry skin. The natural oils and organic butters that we use in maxandjane Skin Care repair the intercellular matrix to replenish what your body is not producing itself.
The second layer of skin includes hyaluronic acid, glycerine and lecithin, which are among thenatural ingredients in maxandjane skin care products. Glycerin is found naturally in skin and acts synergistically with other lipids in the skin, helping them do their job better. Lecithin in a natural lipid that is found in most living cells. It also helps prevent moisture loss and provides a smooth consistency in the skin care product.
Hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan, is a glycosaminoglycan which is found in connective tissues in the human body. It is a moisture binding ingredient that keeps skin hydrated and helps repair tissue. That’s important because as our skin loses moisture, it loses firmness and pliability; youthful looking skin is working well to hold moisture in the cells. Hyaluronic acid is known to hold moisture better than other polymers that make up living organisms, making it a vital skin identical ingredient.
At maxandjane Skin Care, we use vegan, plant-based, fermented hyaluronic acid. Most hyaluronic acid is produced from the comb of a rooster (so you know what that meant for the rooster!) Hyaluronic acid works to repair and prevent wrinkles in our skin care products because of its moisture retention qualities.
