Skincare- An All Over Concept!

Molecular Cosmetics main ingredient Purslane has strong regenerative effects on a cellular level. Purslane is very rich in vitamins, minerals and can be found across the world. The herb contains a high amount of glutathione, a natural anti-oxidant system and Omega-3 fatty acids that are otherwise only found in fish oil. Purslane is a real power herb that strengthens and protects our body and skin against damaging environmental influences. Due to its strong healing powers, it has been used by humans for a long time but has been nearly forgotten until recently, when scientists rediscovered and proven its great anti-aging potential in several studies, one of them being awarded by the Nobel Prize in 2009.

For skin and cell protection the so-called antioxidants are essential. Ideally they are supplied through nutrition and also applied locally to the skin. This is why Molecular Cosmetics products contain high-quality antioxidants like: Vitamin A, Panthenol, Vitamin C and also Vitamin E, which is found in all products of this series and additionally has an anti-inflammatory effect. It accelerates the enzyme activity of the skin, and increases moisture retention of the skin’s top layer. Vitamin C & E are both strong free radical captors that strengthen the skin’s antioxidant system; combining them is essential and symbiotic since they are able to regenerate each other.

Supply your skin with adequate moisture and do not expose it to excessive UV radiation. On a daily basis, our skin is exposed to many stresses (eg. weather, heating, UV radiation …), that have a dehumidifying effect. In addition, the ability of the skin to retain moisture decreases with aging. Therefore, pay attention to proper hydration from the inside and outside; a good skin care deeply nourishes the skin with intense moisture, so that it can maintain its elasticity and looks radiant. For this reason, Molecular Cosmetics facial care products contain high quality oils, moisturizers such as hyaluronic acid, panthenol, aloe vera extract, shea butter, squalane, corn oil, avocadin, grape seed oil, jojoba oil, macadamia nut, etc. Moreover, it is important not to expose the skin to unnecessarily irritating and harmful substances. For this reason, Dr. Barbara Sturm’s skin care is fragrance, parabens and mineral oils free.

All of their products, especially the Calming Serum soothes irritated and reddened skin from everyday stress like dehydration. I’m telling you, your skin will thank you and start to glow when using this line.
