A Real Gem for Your Skin
Ancient Egyptians discovered the beauty benefits in this stone long before any human would ever utter the word “antioxidant”. Used over 5,000 years ago, Egyptians harnessed the beautiful hues of Malachite extract to pigment eyeshadows. The gemstone itself was also worn by Egyptians for its healing powers, but interestingly enough they were just scratching the surface of what this powerful gem offered.
Malachite extract is obtained by grinding the gemstone into a fine powder. Its beautiful rich coloring provides a natural alternative to artificial coloring in beauty products. But it benefits do not stop there. Malachite extract is classified as an antioxidant.
We know that topical antioxidants should play a pivotal role in our daily skincare routine to fight one of the leading causes of aging, inflammation. This dangerous enemy attacks both internally and externally by generating free radicals. Externally, free radicals can be triggered by sun damage, pollution, and even second-hand smoke. Internally, it can be powered by poor nutrition and stress.
Topical antioxidants can be an ally in the fight against anti-aging by helping protect skin by fighting the production of free radicals, which can lead to inflammation that ultimately damages skin.
Talk about a gem of an ingredient! We love when nature meets science. While finding a high-quality skincare product with such a premium ingredient might not always be easy, it is well worth the search.
