For skincare ingredients, we love how Knotgrass Extracts delivers a unique IR protection, which is essential with the increasing awareness of IR induced damage on our skin.
Knotgrass, used in our Skin Firming Booster, is extremely rich in flavonoids. It is known as the first active acting on Infra’Aging™ (infrared-induced aging and thermal aging). Plus, it contains high amounts of antioxidants.
Infrared Rays are more harmful than UV-rays
Most people understand how harmful UV-rays are but neglect the more negative impact from Infrared Rays.
Infrared-induced aging penetrates much deeper into the skin layer which induces all the signs of premature aging.
(The diagram shows IRA penetrates into dermis layer (deeper layer of the skin) which degrades collagen and elastic fibres)
By entering deep into the layers of our skin, Infrared Rays cause photoaging.
Another impact is that Infrared Rays will be converted to heat after entering the skin, causing thermal ageing.
Thermal ageing and Infrared induced ageing, coupled with ageing caused by UV rays, is what falls under the umbrella term: Photoaging.
