The range of Colorescience anti-ageing products and skin care for mature skin includes highly targeted therapies such as the eye renewal and clinical redness corrector, and it also covers more general items such as primers and perfectors.
All of these products are designed to help with different issues, and we'll discuss those and the ingredients in a moment, but one thing they have in common is the SPF protection. That's because we use minerals such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, along with various botanicals and other natural ingredients, so your skin is protection from the sun and you can keep looking younger for longer.
Other than the minerals we use in the range of Colorescience products, titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, there is also a range of ingredients specific to certain ageing skin care products.
Panthenol is used in some of our products. It's a derivative of vitamin B5 and it provides many benefits such as adding moisture to the skin, calming inflamed and itchy skin, and speeding up the healing process. Other ingredients can provide similar benefits, but panthenol penetrates deeper in to the skin, making it more effective.
We also use sodium hyaluronate, which is the salt of hyaluronic acid. This is a safe and natural ingredient already found in the human body, but supplementing it with a topical treatment can provide many benefits. Sodium hyaluronate has incredible moisture retention – able to hold almost a thousand times more water relative to its weight – and it can penetrate the skin very well. This leads to a smoother complexion with less wrinkles, and softer skin in general.
You'll also see palmitoyl tripeptide-5 in some of the products listed here. This ingredient is proven to be effective in stimulating collagen production and aiding the communication between skin cells. Basically, it can help by telling your skin cells to get rid of toxins while also giving the benefits of having more collagen.
These are anti-ageing products that are formulated to take the place of your regular primer while also giving you the benefit of being targeted toward mature skin. It's not just a name or a gimmick – these primers use clinically proven ingredients such as those mentioned above and they really can help you look great today and continue to look more youthful tomorrow.
For example, take a look at our SPF 20 Brightening Perfector Face Primer for an easy alternative to the primer you're using now. It has a subtle yellow tint to give you a brighter look while it also softens fine lines in the face and helps make your pores appear smaller.
If you're struggling with redness or irritated skin, try our SPF 20 Calming Perfector Face Primer as a daily solution to these issues. It comes in a golden-nude shade for a great look on any skin tone. It's also gluten-free, paraben-free, and unscented so it's perfect for those with sensitive skin.
