Skin care is made up of numerous ingredients promising preventative measures and solutions to many skin concerns. There are so many companies and brands claiming to provide results with the most “innovative skin care ingredient,” it’s getting even more difficult than ever to decide which one could be truly helpful for your skin..
What you’ll find in this post:
Stem cells, for example, are found in almost all the new “technologically advanced” skin care products. It promises to restore and reverse the signs of aging for longer intervals than all the competition. Would you buy products with this magical new ingredient just because it’s the “new” thing?
What’s the Determining Factor in Your Decision to Purchase Skincare Products?
How do you make up your decision as to which new skincare product to buy? What are your common determining factors?
Skincare products don’t always have to have the “secret ingredient.” The packaging can play a significant role in the success of its sales and the number of positive reviews it generates.
Just think back at the many products you’ve purchased. Would you put something in your skin if it looked like the bottle in came in was dull? You may, but if you compared it next to a more flashy one with fancy words, we bet you would be sold on the flashy bottle, especially if they were priced pretty close together.
You become familiar with the product once you’ve seen it a few times. If you never tried it, you ask yourself why and then eventually feel the need to do so.
Marketing has to do with promotions involved in helping towards the sales process of the product. It’s basically whatever it takes to get you, the consumer, to purchase the product.
Reviews are almost a sub-part of marketing. Nowadays, reviews give a lot of weight to decision-making processes. People want to know what others thought of the product. Would you?
If your girlfriend or aunt loves it, then it must be good, right? We often feel our must trusted sources are those closest to us. You notice how beautiful your friend’s skin is and want what she’s got. The only problem is, you might have different skin types.
What the Stem Cell Hype is All About
Stem cells have the power to regenerate just about any cell in the body, which is exactly what makes them so attractive. In skin care, these stem cells are made from either plant cells or human stem cells derived from unfertilized eggs.
When purchasing products with stem cells, its important to be mindful of 2 important things:
- Whether the stem cells are human derived stem cells or plant derived
- The order and amount of stem cells in the product
The amount of stem cells there are in a product makes a significant difference in its ability to do its job properly. Stem cells are very expensive to generate. If you’ve paid for an expensive product with this active ingredient, it could be placed at the beginning of the list, where most people typically find it first or at the end of the list.
This active ingredient should be placed at the beginning of the list if there’s a significant amount in the product. Manufacturers typically want it to be the first thing you see if that’s the case.
What is HOCL?
Stem cells are the hot new skincare trend, but have you heard of an even more natural, innovative ingredient used to fight infections and enhance healing? Have you heard of a natural component of white blood cells, called Hypochlorous acid (HOCL)? HOCL is a compound in our body that gets released by white blood cells when we get a cut of any sort, exposing our skin to infections.
We are all about enhancing the healing process and helping skin cells regenerate as naturally as possible. So when we heard about a special compound that helps to destroy infections, bacteria, and other potentially harmful elements on the skin, we realized the benefits it would have on the skincare industry.
Over the next few months, we will go through various details about HOCL and its many benefits. In addition, we will introduce a product that compliments all face and body treatments, reducing the possibility of adverse conditions when exfoliations and more invasive treatments take place in a spa.
