What is Nano Technology Skincare?

October 4th, 2013

Nano technology skincare may sound like a science fiction path of a cyborg future. But nano technology is actually a cutting an avant guard approach to age-reversing face care.  Holistic facial care incorporates natural ingredients that are synthesized to deeply penetrate the skin on a molecular level, the results can be quite desirable for those who aim for agelessness.

What makes nano technology so effective in skincare? Nanosomes are 800 times the size of a strand of human hair so they slip beyond the dermal surface with minimal resistance!  This is seen as a breakthrough in skincare applications that now reach further beneath the epidermis to rejuvenate skin function on a deeper cellular level.

Imagine breaking down otherwise bulky ingredients to a more refined cleanser, exfoliant, toner or moisturizer for improved permeability. What you have is the ultimate skincare that can ease into your pores for truly effective and visually noticeable improved health. In the form of ‘nanosomes’ (or nanoparticles) that is what nano-technology offers skin.  If chosen wisely, infinitely reduced  particles of vitamins, minerals, proteins and antioxidants can rapidly deliver anti-aging benefits upon contact through advanced face care.

What are liposomes?

Liposomes are artificially designed to serve as vehicles for absorption of nutrients.  You can find liposomes in many facial cleansers and moisturizers.  According to beautymagonline.com: ‘The disadvantage with conventional large, liposomes (Typically 1 micron in size) are that they…have a limited ability to penetrate narrow blood vessels or into the skin to a significant degree. Consequently, some of the materials that are entrapped in the inner layers of these liposomes may in certain conditions be virtually un-releasable.’

How do nanosomes help your skin?

Now there are nanosomes. These tiny particles are mere fractions in size–much smaller than the liposomes in other basic facial products.  When you consider how many natural derivatives go into high end face care, a daily serum for example, it may difficult to imagine how all of it can actually get beneath the surface of your skin to strengthen cells for a younger appearance.  Because the particles are so small they can really get into the skin to protect and enrich with antioxidants, proteins and other nutrients vital for maintaining youthful exuberance.

Some of the forerunners is the aesthetic field, along with leading cosmetic chemists, are banding together to create face care that does more than sit on the top facial layers as average products generally do.  They are choosing nano-technology for this reason.  When nutrient rich ingredients are fully absorbed throughout the skin this nourishment produces more dramatic effects for a face that beams with healthy radiance.

Nano technology skincare has a promising outlook for truly releasing essential vitamins and minerals into connective tissue in ways that can potentially change the structure of dermal cells for a positively ageless outcome.  Keep in mind that the connective tissue is what holds the skin together to prevent sagging, fine lines and wrinkles overall that make the face looked aged and worn. So choosing skin-boosting skincare available through nano-technology may stave off the forces and gravity of time and nature.
