What does Meadowfoam Seed Oil Do For Your Skin?
Meadowfoam seed oil acts as an emollient when applied to your hair or skin, according to a 2017 study.
Emollients are substances that create a protective seal over your skin to lock in moisture. Other emollients commonly used in skincare products include:
When applied topically, emollients smooth out your skin and help keep it soft and supple. Most commercial moisturizers include emollients in their formula, along with other ingredients that draw water into your skin.
The meadowfoam seed oil has several traits that may make it a good choice to include in your skincare routine.
It contains more than 98 percent long-chain fatty acids that give it one of the highest stabilities of any vegetable oil. The meadowfoam seed oil also has a longer shelf life than most other vegetable oils without losing its effectiveness.
Plus, meadowfoam oil doesn’t leave a greasy feeling when applied to your skin like some other emollients do.
Meadowfoam seed oil for sun damage
A 2018 lab study examined two chemicals derived from meadowfoam, called 3-methoxybenzyl isothiocyanate and 3-methoxyphenyl acetonitrile, to assess whether they could protect the skin from UVB rays found in sunlight.
The researchers exposed isolated human skin cells and human skin grown in vitro to UV light, and they found that these two chemicals did play a protective role.
The same researchers are also looking into the photoprotective effects of chemicals in the seed meal created as a by-product of meadowfoam seed oil production.
What does OptiMSM do for your skin?
OptiMSM is the purest and only GRAS-designated MSM (methylsulfonylmethane). Bergstrom Nutrition uses a proprietary multi-stage distillation process, and every batch is third-party tested, ensuring optimal purity, quality, and consistency. In contrast to OptiMSM, other commercially available MSM uses crystallization to isolate the MSM molecule. As this crystallized material cools, occlusions can develop that trap contaminants within the MSM and lead to material that may contain heavy metals, residual water, and other impurities.
OptiMSM is made exclusively in the USA and manufactured in a single-purpose cGMP-certified, ISO-registered facility to help provide essential traceability.
Kosher and Halal certified, non-GMO, gluten-free, allergen-free, non-shellfish-derived, and vegan, our OptiMSM backed by extensive toxicology data.
MSM is a naturally occurring substance found in the human body and many foods. The highest concentration of MSM in nature is in mammal milk, but these sources contain MSM in parts per million. Therefore, you cannot extract, isolate or grow the compound.
Keratin is a protein that acts as the main structural component in your hair, skin, and nails. It contains high levels of the sulfur-containing amino acid cysteine. That’s why burnt hair gives off a characteristic sulfurous smell. MSM may be beneficial for skin health by acting as a sulfur donor to keratin. This, in turn, can help strengthen this important protein.
MSM also helps reduce inflammation, which can damage skin cells and cause signs of premature aging like wrinkles. It may even reduce symptoms of problematic skin conditions such as rosacea, which can cause redness, irritation, and inflammation of the skin. One study showed that, when applied to the skin, MSM significantly improved redness, itching, inflammation, hydration, and skin color in people with rosacea.
What does Organic Blue-Green Algae Do For Your Skin?
Blue-green algae are high in proteins and fatty acids, which help to lift and tone your skin. Second, the fatty acids work down deep to help firm and tighten the appearance of your skin.
The blue-green algae are naturally water-based, which in turn allow the blue-green algae to provide moisturization and purifying hydration, which helps to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Research has also found that blue-green algae have properties that make them ideal for sensitive skin. Finally, because it’s so compatible with various skin types, it’s easily absorbed so the skin does excellent for a variety of people!
What does White Willow Bark Extract Do For Your Skin?
Derived from the bark of the willow tree, Willow Bark Extract has been used for centuries to soothe irritated skin. Containing salicin—from which salicylic acid is derived—this versatile ingredient is both anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, clearing pores and alleviating acne and irritation.
