Exfoliating the skin is a simple and easy way to restore a radiant glow. We will be discussing how we can navigate this category with confidence and avoid some common mistakes brands have made with exfoliating ingredients.
In the skincare industry, we continue to see a pattern of over-exfoliation. How do we know if the trend is suitable for our skin type or condition as so many products are marketed with increasingly high concentrations? Over-exfoliation affects the skin barrier function and comprises our skin microbiome. It can even result in certain skin conditions such as rosacea and acne.
As we look at the current ingredient trend on the market, many formulas are focusing on just specific ingredients and promoting the highest concentrations possible. This “supersized” or “more is better” approach can alter the health of our skin, specifically it can alter our skin protective barrier and cause sensitivity. Many brands have unfortunately taken this direction. The Europelab advantage is that our formulas take into consideration the overall health of our skin while offering visible results. Many consumers have been focusing solely on the ingredients or the percentages on the labels and are often hypersensitive or irritate their skin. However, there’s more to it than that! The base ingredients and the pH of the formula will give us the complete story of the exfoliating potential of a product.
At Europelab, we have over 30 years’ experience in optimizing formulation to ensure skin health is priority.
The key aspect that sets our laboratory apart from others is our hyper-focus on the complete formula! The INCI labeling (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) is a verified list of ingredients showcasing from the highest to lowest concentrations. This certification will help you and your clients avoid allergic reactions, questionable formulas and feel more confident in the products they use on their skin.
