Orogold Ingredients – Nutrients
It goes without saying: natural nutrients are critical for a smooth, beautiful complexion. But did you know that oral supplements aren’t the only form of nutrients that your body can take in? Topical application of nutrients actually helps your skin look healthier and more youthful, too. Find out which nutrients are incorporated in OROGOLD products below.
Selenium isn’t just a test scripting language. It’s actually a powerful trace mineral found in foods like Brazil nuts, whole grains, and onions. Thanks to its powerful antioxidant capacities, this mineral helps improve skin elasticity and prevents the growth of acne-forming bacteria.
The most notable study on selenium was conducted by The Journal of the American Medical Association, which showed that daily ingestion of selenium reduced skin cancer risks by 50% and overall mortality by 17%. Another research also showed that selenium helped to reduce the formation of sunburn cells, leading to better, more even skin tone.
If you struggle with acne, then zinc is your mineral best friend. Another trace mineral found in most foods, including pecans, oyster, pumpkin seeds, and mushrooms, this mineral helps stimulate at least 100 different enzymes in your body. Not only does Zinc help to fight off harmful UV rays from the sun, it also promotes the regulation of oil production in skin, leading to less acne-prone skin.
Clinical studies have found what the skin care industry has always known: Copper is good for your skin. The critical peptide here is GHK-copper, which improves skin elasticity and suppleness while fighting wrinkles and photo-damage. If there was ever a super-nutrient for skin, copper would be it.
Another important advantage of copper is its anti-inflammatory properties (it suppresses inflammatory cytokines), which helps to silence the visible signs associated with aging.
Essential Fatty Acids
More than just emollients or thickening agents, essential fatty acids (EFAs) contribute to skin health by inhibiting inflammation and reducing various skin conditions including priuritis, erythema, scaling and rosacea. Often taken as an oral supplement (think omega-3 and omega-6 supplements in drugstores), it is not often known that topical application of EFAs is also tremendously advantageous for skin.
Among the fatty acids used in OROGOLD products are stearic acid, oleic acid, lauric acid, and caprylic acid. Fatty alcohols, which are merely fatty acids exposed to hydrogen, are also used widely in our skin care products. They can be identified by their alcohol names: lauryl alcohol, stearyl alcohol, oleyl alcohol, and cetyl alcohol.
