Every year new ingredients hit the market with promises of revolutionizing skin-care products and tapping the elusive Fountain of Youth. At times, they deliver, and substances such as retinol or peptides exceed expectations and change the landscape of skin care. Others fizzle with little or no impact.

We’ve polled more than 25 experts and asked them which ingredients are worth watching and buying in Described by New York dermatologist Dr. Lewis as the “Cadillac of peptides,” growth factors are groups of proteins that are capable of stimulating cellular growth. Researchers have so far isolated a handful of growth factors with potential skin-care benefits: Scientists are still determining which combination of growth factors works most effectively.

Carnosine, an amino acid naturally found in muscle tissue, acts as a powerful antioxidant. In the ’80s, researchers found that applying it to wounds sped up the healing process, says Beverly Hills-based dermatologist Dr. Like many other antioxidants, “carnosine is water-soluble, whereas antioxidants like vitamin E are fat-soluble. It also reacts with damaged proteins, which can be a sign of aging cells,” she says.


Why it looks promising: Scientists theorize that reducing glycation — in which sugar binds with proteins such as collagen and impairs their functioning — could slow the aging process, Dr. exprwssion

exprwssion Increasingly, companies are incorporating carnosine in their skin-care products. One place to find it: Sirtuins are enzymes that have been shown to potentially repair DNA and regulate genes connected with aging.

But first, the sirtuins need to be activated by an agent such as resveratrol, commonly found in red wine, or epigallocatechin, found in green tea. John Gross, director of cosmetic surgery education at USC.

Instead of combating the appearance of fine lines, products that activate sirtuins can potentially “slow down the clock” and prevent signs of aging, he says. But coupled with its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, it’s worth keeping an eye on.

Nicknamed the “Gold of Morocco,” Argan oil has been used for centuries by Berber women, but only recently made a significant appearance in the West. Angerhofer, director of botanical research at Aveda: Free-radical damage is the result of oxidation, a key factor in the aging of skin. Argan oil’s concentration of tocopherols, or vitamin E, helps protect against free-radical damage while essential fatty acids keep skin hydrated and balanced, making it a great ingredient in oil-control products.

Argan oil is being tapped as a natural alternative to synthetic ingredients. Incorporating the extract from the Acmella oleracea plant, which contains muscle relaxing properties, Gatuline Expression is a patented ingredient available through Gattefosse Canada. Facial expressions require muscle contractions, and these repetitive movements result in expression lines or wrinkles. In clinical tests, Acmella Oleracea extract has been shown to relax contractions.
