ABSOLUTE

- the product of concrete treatment (alcohol extraction, filtration and evaporation of alcohol). It is usually dark-colored of high-strength of smell, for example, absolute of jasmine, tuberose, rose, violet leaves. It is the essence of pure essential oils, and therefore it has an extremely powerful odor that develops slowly and is more durable, and its aroma creates a different bunch than the concrete of the same material. Some natural absolutes cost even 300 zł per 5 ml. They are added only to the fragrances from the top shelf.

Resin - are derived from essential oils in the process of oxidation with oxygen from the air, this process occurs spontaneously or after cutting a plant. They usually occur in the form of connections with rubber, mucus and essential oils. They are very rarely used in perfumery in the unprocessed form. They are semi-products in the process of distillation or extraction.

Between the gel and the skin there is a layer of cells that contain bitter yellow juice. After drying the juice, aloe latex is obtained. Aloe vera has an analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial effect and it increases blood supply to the skin, accelerates healing, moisturizes the skin and removes the cracks. Due to the moisturizing effect, aloe vera pulp is used as the primary agent in the production of many types of moisturizing creams.

AMBERGIS

(fr. ambre) AMBRA - waxy, gray-brown secretion of the digestive tract of a sperm whale. It is excreted in the form of a shameless lump, which is then crushed and diluted.

Anti-Aging offers a wide variety of rejuvenating methods so everyone will have something to choose from.

Antyoksydant

Wolne rodniki są wyjątkowo groźne dla skóry i jej młodego wyglądu. Namnażają się m.in. pod wpływem działania temperatury, promieniowania UV, palenia papierosów czy stresu. Składnikami, które skutecznie radzą sobie z tym niezwykle groźnym wrogiem, są antyoksydanty, które podzielić można na: - zamiatacze rodników (witamina E), które zatrzymują szkodliwy proces i - środki redukujące, które chronią właściwą substancję. Komórki organizmu potrafią redukować i neutralizować szkodliwe substancje poprzez odpowiednią gospodarkę magazynowania antyoksydantami. Brak równowagi pomiędzy działaniem wolnych rodników i antyoksydantów prowadzi do powstania stresu oksydacyjnego, w rezultacie którego funkcje naprawy i odtrucia zostają ograniczone. W efekcie komórka potrzebuje więcej energii, aby stabilizować funkcję membran oraz chronić proteiny przed oksydacją i uszkodzeniem DNA. Te trzy czynniki odgrywają kluczową rolę w procesie starzenia.

Application Test

A test conducted on a group of 20 to 30 people. Manufacturers of cosmetics, for commercial and advertising purposes, base their actions on subjective assessment of cosmetic users. Such application-utility test is not mandatory for the introduction of cosmetics into the market in terms of dermatological safety.

Like collagen, coenzyme Q10 is produced naturally by the body until we are 25 years old, at which point its level drops so we have to deliver it to the body externally. Q10 is a powerful antioxidant strengthening blood vessels.

Collagen

The name is another term for fibrous proteins, commonly occurring in the human body and animals.This natural protein is responsible for skin elasticity and flexibility, and for its regeneration.Natural collagen is produced by the skinuntil we turn 25 years of age, as we get older, the skin loses its elasticity because of the gradual disappearance of this protein. Collagen also participates in vital functions of all systems and tissues of the body.Deficiency of collagen in the skin results in accelerated aging of the skin, its dryness and matte shade.

CONCRETE

- an extract obtained from fresh plant materials by the extraction with anhydrous solvent and evaporation of the solvent. Concretes are often obtained from plant materials when receiving oil by steam distillation is difficult or impossible. Due to the presence of waxes, which "hold" the smell, concretes have very persistent odors.

Free radicals

molecules formed in the body during the oxidation process. Free radicals act destructively on cell membranes, collagen and elastin, thus accelerating the process of skin aging. Living in constant stress, poor diet, exposure to sunlight and pollution contribute to formation of free radicals in the body. Where the quantity of free radicals is greater than what the body can fight alone, the natural biochemical balance is upset. To fight off free radicals, antioxidants are recommended, among other things contained in vitamins A, C, E, coffee, tea or oatmeal.

The best known hormones are adrenaline (stress fighting hormone) and serotonin (a hormone that affects the nervous system).

Hyaluronic Acid

It is one of the most important components of our skin. It combines collagen and elastin fibers in the skin. It occurs as hygroscopic liquid with gel properties, which makes it a versatile and easily used carrier of other active substances.

The content of hyaluronic acid in the skin depends on age. Over 50% of its content in our body is located in the dermis. Its highest concentration is found in the skin of babies and with it decreases. This decrease is especially rapid passing 50 years of age. Also, due to UV radiation, hyaluronic acid is subject to photodegradation. Its ability to retain water leads to maintaining proper hydration of skin cells. Well-moisturized skin is better protected against damage and becomes more permeable for active substances.

Nanocarriers

Capsules transporting active ingredients into the skin. Their advantage is the possibility of effective use of the substances contained in them in a particular location of the skin. Due to their construction and biological properties, they penetrate skin layers, gradually releasing their content. These types of components are also used to protect active ingredients from other components of cream or another cosmetic.They work very delicately, they exhibit very high affinity for skin cells, so their penetration is facilitated. The first substance used as a nanocarrier was liposome.

Parabens

Cosmetic preservatives that protect cosmetics from emergence of harmful bacteria or fungi. They extend shelf life and protect against natural decomposition of vegetable ingredients in creams.The use of preservatives in creams is not advisable but at this moment unavoidable.Permissible concentration of parabens in the European Unioncountries is 0.4%. The use of parabens in acceptable doses does not cause toxic side effects, however, their use is debatable in the world of cosmetics.

pH

For the skin to properly protect the body against viruses, microorganisms and bacteria, it should have an acidic pH of 4.5 to 6.2. Its value changes with age. Acidic secretions of skin glands give it a certain pH.If the acidic pH of the skin is disrupted, appearance of bacteria and fungi on the skin surface is possible. The best way to maintain its correct value is to use cosmetics with similar pH. Using cosmetics and alkaline substances can result in impaired skin protection.

Po schłodzeniu i odfiltrowaniu nierozpuszczalnych składników następuje częściowe lub całkowite oddestylowanie rozpuszczalnika.  Wydajność i jakość resinoidu zależy od użytego surowca, technologii produkcji oraz zastosowanego rozpuszczalnika. Resinoidy stosowane są np. jako utrwalacze zapachu wyrobów perfumeryjnych.

Retinol

Used in cosmetics, it is a pure form of vitamin A.It is most commonly found in anti-wrinkle creams due to its characteristic stimulation of cell renewal process.

Toxins

Chemicals absorbed by the human body from the external environment.Toxins are in the water, air or in food products, so their impact on the human body is significant.
