Let me try to save you some time. The next time you go to shop for your anti aging eye cream, anti aging serum, or anti aging face creams, look for products with the following anti aging skin care ingredients.
natural vitamin E
Green Tea & White Tea Extracts
These anti aging skin care ingredients are natural and most importantly, it has been proven to work. Find out more below.
Coenzyme Q10, is a naturally-occurring compound found within every cell in the body. This vitamin-like substance, is vitally important for cell functioning: it plays a major role in energy production and is a powerful antioxidant helping to neutralize harmful free radicals that cause aging.
Factors, such as stress, medications, gradual aging can lower the levels of CoQ10 in the body.
How does it work to combat aging?
Everyday life, cell metabolism, exposure to sun and other environmental factors, toxins, cigarette smoke – all result in production of free radicals. So topically, CoQ10 is used as a potent free-radical scavenger in skincare preparations. As we age, levels of CoQ10 in the skin are below optimum, resulting in lesser ability to produce collagen, elastin and other important skin molecules. This potent anti-oxidant will provide extra protection for your skin and produce a dramatic anti-wrinkle effect. Research have been reported that long-term use of CoQ10 reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
Cynergy TK = Keratins
What is keratin you ask??? Keratin is a protein that can help to stimulate the production of collagen in our skin; a substance that is lost as we age, and the loss of which contributes to sagging skin and wrinkles.
So what makes Cynergy TK different to others Keratins??? Other keratins currently available have been denatured using harsh processes to make them soluble. These harsh processes effectively destroy the functionality of the proteins.
Cynergy TK is derived using a special protein extraction technology, supported by a portfolio of patents, utilises innovative technologies to gently solubilise the original proteins. These technologies extract keratin fractions in a soluble and digestible form, leaving the natural amino acid structure intact and fully functional.
Clinical research has shown a 14% improvement in moisture and a 42% increase in elasticity when Cynergy TK was applied for 18 consecutive days.
“Tests show that Cynergy TK™ improves the brightness and radiance of the skin, giving the face a more even, creamy complexion. It reduces fine lines and wrinkles, promoting proliferation of skin cells by up to 160 percent more than control products. It contains zinc and copper protein complexes that are useful for repair and maintenance, and improving the skin’s ongoing ability to repair.”
A powerful antioxidant derived from Japanese sea algae/weed.
– Prized by the Japanese for its ability to keep the skin looking youthful
– Rich in calcium and other important minerals, plus B-group vitamins
– Antioxidant, moisturing and smoothing
– Proven to increase skin elasticity
– Helps to heal irritated and dry skin
Wakame is rich in sodium, iron, potassium and calcium (15 times more calcium than milk). These minerals are essential to maintain the skin’s moisture balance, and keep it looking firm and healthy. Wakame is also rich in vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 B12, which help to sooth inflammation of the skin.
Phytessence Wakame also inhibits the activity of hyaluronidase, an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid in the skin. Hyaluronic acid, together with elastin and collagen, is essential to maintain the elasticity, smoothness and tone of the skin. Without hyaluronic acid, the elastin and collagen fibers lose their “glue”, which leads to a loss of youthful appearance and dark eye circles.
If you wonder why most Japanese women have such fantastic skin. Smooth, youthful looking young skin, right into old age. This wonderful ingredient definitely helps.
The next time you do your skin care shopping, have a look at the ingredients and you will notice many skin care products contain vitamin E. Well, Vitamin E is full of antioxidants and has long been considered to be one of the most effective agent to counter the skin’s free radicals and really packs a power anti-aging punch.
The fatty cell membranes in the body are protected from the free radicals when vitamin E is taken in the proper dosage. When topically applied it helps to improve texture and suppleness of you skin and helps to moisturize dry skin conditions. It forms the basic substance in many beauty lotions and anti wrinkle creams.

Green Tea & White Tea Extracts
Green & white tea’s most active ingredients are flavanols, polyphenols and EGCG. EGCG is so potent, that it is said to have between 25 to 100 times the antioxidant power of vitamins C and A.
When topically applied, green tea and white tea may protect against sun damage and provide anti-aging benefits. The active ingredient in green tea (EGCG) can shield against carcinogenesis caused by exposure to UVB rays helping to prevent skin damage. In fact it is much more powerful than vitamin c and vitamin e put together.
