There seems to be a different cream for every different type of skin complaint – from eczema cream, vitamin e cream, vitamin c cream, retinol cream, aloe vera cream, you could spend all day just applying creams!
Skin is precious – skin is what stands between you and the environment. So it makes sense to take care of it. Because, what is in that beauty cream you use can have a marked and lasting affect on your skin.
Most people suffer from a very common skin affliction: self diagnosis. We make a decision about what our skin needs, usually based on mass marketing, then go and buy an array of cosmetic creams without really knowing what we are applying to our skin.
These so called best cellulite creams, vitamin c creams, or collagen creams can be doing more harm than good, which leads to more skin complaints and even more creams – organic, natural or otherwise.
Don’t start a vicious cycle. The best thing you can do for your skin is get a proper diagnosis and an expertly prescribed skin care routine.

What are you really applying to your skin with that cosmetic cream?
Have you ever read your current cream’s bio? Even the so-called best creams are full of synthetics and chemicals.
The latest research shows that using chemicals and over exfoliating your skin can not only accelerate aging, but can also lead to skin irritation and sensitivity.
This is because when we used harsh chemicals or abrasives we damage the epidermal barrier on our skin. This barrier is crucial to the healthy functioning of our skin and when it is damaged, finite skin nutrients and resources are diverted away from our dermis to our epidermis to fix this barrier.
This barrier is made up of lipids, so when you use that exfoliating cream, or cream and other cleansers containing sodium laurel sulphate, you are damaging this barrier by stripping these lipids away. This is because sodium laurel sulphate, and its various derivatives, is the same ingredient in dishwashing detergent.
Yes, that’s right. You are applying dishwashing detergent to your face. Is there any wonder it is so irritated?
Lets look now at lightening cream, whitening creams and depigmentation creams. Most of these mass produced creams, including ones prescribed by your dermatologist, contain hydroquinone. Hydroquinone is actually banned in other countries around the world because of serious contra-indications, but not in Australia. Long term, these fade creams can deposit a blue/black pigment into your skin that cannot be removed.
Chiral Actives is a range of cream and serum products that have been developed using the latest research into skin.
Chiral Actives lotions, creams and serums use only natural, chemical free ingredients to nourish and restructure the skin from the inside out, without stripping the natural protective epidermal barrier.
Check out Chiral Actives range of creams containing niacinamide, retinaldehyde, as well as rosacea cream, natural mineral sunscreen cream, freckle fade creams, anti aging products and more. All Chiral Actives creams are suitable for even the most sensitive skins.
This is because Chiral Actives only contain natural and chirally correct ingredients, and do not contain damaging ingredients, like sodium lauryl sulfate, hydroquinone, parabens or any other artificial additives or chemicals. Chirally corrected ingredients means we use the most active and least irritating form of an ingredient, so all skin types, even sensitive skins, can use Chiral Actives.
Chiral Actives antiaging creams also contains retinaldehyde, the most natural, yet potent, form of Vitamin A available.
Repair iiiRegenerating Serum is a stronger anti aging serum than Repair i and Repair ii. This all-natural, liposomal, chirally correct, level three anti aging, natural cream contains ingredients that are proven to dramatically improve the skin. This product is used sparingly to boost results for stubborn lines, scars and significantly damaged skin. This serum can be added in to any cream on a daily or less frequent basis for total skin renewal. It contains 0.2% Retinaldehyde, as well as many other collagen/elastin stimulating ingredients.
It is pointless to have organic creams or herbal creams if they are not doing the job. Fortunately, not only does Chiral Actives actually work, but they also contain no chemicals whatsoever.
Synergist is a skin accelerating growth factor serum which complements Chiral Actives creams. In fact, this anti aging face serum could prove to be the single greatest invention in the history of skin care. Skin Repair Growth Factor (SRGF-7) rejuvenates and repairs damaged DNA/RNA, it reduces scar tissue buildup by improving protein production, it stimulates collagen production and, more importantly, improves the strength and elasticity of the collagen structure. It also works as a hyperpigmentation cream to regulate pigment production so that it functions properly to protect the skin, while normalising melanin output, which results in the dramatic improvement of melasma, age spots and re-pigmenting vitiligo. Amazingly, this after sun cream also corrects DNA damage related to UV exposure, thereby healing pre-cancerous lesions and it repairs many facial capillaries including poikiloderma.
Saturate is the best moisturising skin cream. Forget the olive oil creams and the aloe creams and the vitamin e creams. This all-natural, luxurious hyaluronic acid and liquid crystal antiaging cream provides various natural lipids to restore the epidermal barrier. Saturate contains high doses of hyaluronic acid, which provides a wonderful moisturising effect. It also uses argirilene for firming and niacinamide, which is proven to help restore the skin’s barrier and feed the skin with its own natural moisturising factors. This is so natural and gentle is can even be used as a psoriasis cream.
Vitalise is a fine line firming and restructuring anti aging eye cream. Vitalise is an anti aging cream for night time use, with ingredients proven to help recover a healthy barrier and reduce the fine lines often found around the eyes. This unique blend of plant liquid crystals along with liposomal GHK copper peptides and Retinaldehyde is a best seller because of its nighttime hydrating and plumping effects. We all know it takes time to rebuild the dermis, the plumping effect of liquid crystals provides protection and temporary improvement in fine lines while we wait for deeper remodeling to occur.
Forget using a gel, ‘cream’ soap or cream to cleanse your skin. In fact those cream cleansers and exfoliating creams are adding to your aging.
Fresh Clenz is a natural facial cleanser. This luxurious cleanser effectively removes dirt, makeup and environmental toxins without drying out the skin or stripping the skin’s protective lipid barrier. It is sodium lauryl sulfate free and uses soothing, natural kiwi and kumquat derivatives to purify the skin.
Delicate Clenz is a gently exfoliating, natural facial cleanser that is popular with all skin types. It is very effective at removing environmental toxins, dirt and makeup without stinging the eyes or damaging the skin’s protective lipid barrier. Enzymes are used to clear up loose skin cells only.
To protect your skin from aging, you have to nurture and repair your natural epidermal barrier. Unfortunately, most skin care products, such as aha creams, alpha h rejuvenating creams, bleach creams, cream used for skin whitening and even herbal creams are damaging this barrier by stripping away our natural lipids.
Next time you use a cream to remove your makeup, or a shea butter cream or even a neck cream or sunscreen cream, do yourself a favour and check the ingredients.
