Don’t just look to CBD as the sole beneficial ingredient in luxury skin care products. There are many natural ingredients used in KULCBD skin care products that add to the benefits you’ll see. From antioxidants to hydrating and protective properties, there’s a lot to be gained from all the ingredients we use.
Probiotics: A Powerhouse for Your Skin
Most people associate probiotics with gut health – and they’re not wrong. But probiotics also have many benefits when it comes to skin care by protecting your skin against bad bacteria, which helps with reducing redness and premature aging. With so many things that can throw off the balance of bacteria on your skin, from soaps to medications, keeping the levels of beneficial bacteria up will help keep your skin healthy and radiant.
Trehalose: An Antioxidant and Rehydrating Compound
You may not be familiar with trehalose, so you may think it’s a chemical additive. Actually, it’s a sugar found in plants and fungi, among other natural sources, that has water-binding and antioxidant properties. The dehydration/rehydration cycle can be damaging to skin cells, but it’s believed that trehalose plays a big role in preventing damage to dehydrated skin. It can help skin retain the moisture it would normally lose, keeping your skin looking younger. This applies to more than just dehydration, helping with damage to skin cells due to temperature change and preventing oxidative damage as well.
The antioxidant properties in trehalose help provide defense against polluting agents and environmental stressors. This damage can contribute to premature aging, which is why you will commonly find antioxidants in anti-aging skin care products.
Micro-Algae: A Universally Beneficial Ingredient
Studies show that algae is one of the most universally beneficial ingredients when it comes to skin care products. Some ingredients benefit certain skin types more than others or can even be harmful to certain skin types – but algae has benefits across the board. Part of what contributes to such widespread benefits from algae is the fact that there are a lot of different types. All species of algae have anti-aging benefits but certain types of micro-algae are particularly great at keeping skin younger and happier.
All algae will help inhibit enzymes that break down hyaluronic acid and collagen in the skin, leading to younger, healthier, and more well-hydrated skin. Certain microalgae sub-species will offer a greater focus on antioxidant power, hydrating impact, or protective properties, so it’s helpful to look into which algae is being used in your chosen skin care product. You can’t go wrong with algae, though if you’re looking for a particular benefit, check out which types of algae will best tackle your problem then look for products that use that sub-species.
