Many factors result in the outward appearance of aging: dehydration, non-commensal microorganism habitation, irritants, reactive oxygen species and excess exposure to UV radiation. These harmful factors usually result in a compromised skin barrier, leading to the degradation of structural proteins, wrinkles and sagging. The aging process can be prevented and treated by addressing the underlying mechanisms directly. Formulage has carefully curated an anti-aging range with added natural ingredients to bring about a youthful, radiant appearance.
The most obvious signs of an aging appearance are wrinkles and sagging caused by the inevitable degradation and disorganisation of the skin’s integral collagen and elastin. These proteins are responsible for skin firmness and elasticity, and their degradation can be slowed as follows.
Regular use of Formulage’s Activating Day Cream SPF30+ and Activating Night Cream
These anti-aging products contain a unique cyclic pentapeptide (a small protein) that acts as a growth factor in cellular metabolism, leading to more collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid (that hydrates the skin). The Activating range also includes a variety of anti-aging natural ingredients in different combinations, namely Kigelia africana, Salvia rosmarinus (Rosemary), Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond), and Aloe arborescens, among others. These have anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory properties that combat irritants and Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) that negatively impact the structural proteins.
The Activating Day Cream SPF30+ helps protect your skin against harmful UV rays from the sun with the help of specialised UV filters that absorb the radiation and negate the sun’s degradative and carcinogenic effects on the skin, effectively preventing photoaging. Furthermore, the Activating Day Cream SPF 30+ contains Rosemary leaf extract and Sweet Almond Oil that neutralises the downstream impact of UV radiation (ROS and inflammation).
The Activating Night Cream includes all the ingredients mentioned above, resulting in a potent treatment for the day’s accumulated damage; adding Aloe arborescens and other hydrating active compounds and carriers that carry the actives through the skin’s barrierresults in an overall effective, soothing hydration effect while you sleep.
Applying Formulage’s Anti-Aging Serum daily
The serum contains Vitamin C and antioxidants from Kigelia africana and Aloe arborescens, respectively. Vitamins A, C and E, found in the natural ingredients, and tocopherols and polyphenols that can also be found in our products are known antioxidants, molecules with specialised structures that absorb and or neutralise the free radicals and ROSs produced by inflammatory responses and UV-radiation. These ROSs, aside from negatively impacting structural proteins such as collagen and elastin, also damage the structural proteins of cells and even DNA. The Anti-Aging Serum contains flavonoids that improve the skin’s functionality, especially when used in combination with the rest of the Activating range, resulting in a cumulative anti-aging effect.
Washing your face with the Formulage Cleanser
The Formulage cleanser is specially formulated to cleanse the skin without drying it out. It is non-foaming and cleanses the skin effectively by getting rid of dirt and bacteria accumulated throughout the day and night without making it dry and irritated. The cleanser contains emollients, including Aloe arborescens that have a hydrating effect. The cleansing components are amphoteric surfactants, meaning they are molecules with acidic and basic properties; therefore, they are not too strongly acidic or basic and are mild on the skin overall. The cleanser results in clean, hydrated skin that is primed for the use of the Anti-aging serum and the Activating creams.
