“Skin aging is a complex biological process influenced by combination of endogenous or intrinsic (genetics, cellular metabolism, hormone and metabolic processes) and exogenous or extrinsic (chronic light exposure, pollution, ionizing radiation, chemicals, toxins) factors.” –Human models of aging and longevity, Cevenini et.
These biological components work together to provide structural and physiological alterations and progressive changes in each skin layer as well as changes in skin appearance. In contrast to thin and atrophic, finely wrinkled and dry intrinsically aged skin, premature photo aged skin typically shows a thickened epidermis, mottled discoloration, deep wrinkles, laxity, dullness and roughness.
Skin Care Products Utilizing Amniotic Fluid Components
Hourglass Cosmetics, known for some of the best liners in the business, created an Equilibrium Biomimetic Skin Active Serum a year ago that uses a plant-based lipid called Phosphatidylglycerol that is found in high concentrations in amniotic fluid. Phosphatidylglycerol lipid actually helps to ensure your skin is counteracting any signs of aging and instead producing healthy-looking skin from within.
Bilogique Recherche also uses a mix of fatty emollients in it’s formula for Creme Masque Vernix, which simulates vernix, that waxy coating that is found on a newborn. According to a study published in ACOG’s Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, vernix and amniotic fluid contain an organized pool of antimicrobial peptides with a defined spectrum of bioactivity again common bacterial and fungal pathogens.
