How to choose the right skin care products.
Moisturiser, cleanser and toner from eBay can help your skin look and feel its best. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when buying these skin care products.
Cleansers help fight acne and other blemishes by removing dirt and buildup from pores. Toner is a second layer of defense that controls extra bits of oil and grease that cleansers miss.
You can use moisturisers to hydrate and treat skin on your face and other parts of your body. If you have an oily or combination complexion, lighter styles of lotions are best for the face, if you have dry skin, heavier moisturisers are best for you.
Skin care products also help protect you from the harsh Australian sun. Buying a moisturiser with SPF helps protect your skin from damage from the sun.
Looking after your skin is important and you can find a great range of products from a variety of brands to try on eBay.
1. Technical Field
This invention relates to a vehicle for carrying active ingredients, preferably for topical treatment for skin conditions, wherein the vehicle is water-free, emulsifier-free, and preservative-free.
2. Background Art
There are many anti-aging creams claiming to work wonders on wrinkles and other skin blemishes associated with aging. However, a recent article published by Consumer Reports has indicated that these products had, at best, a small effect, and that these effects were not present in everyone after six weeks of treatment. Furthermore, any affect was short-lived. In the study, most of the test subjects indicated that they would buy what was revealed to be a simple moisturizer used as the control product. Therefore, current anti-aging creams are ineffective.
One factor contributing to the problem with anti-aging creams is that the creators are motivated by money from big corporations instead of the joy of accomplishment of making consumers feel beautiful. Furthermore, driven by profits, manufacturers of the top brands in the industry have separated the ingredients to address only one type of problem per cream in order to sell a larger variety of products. Big companies hold creative thinking back by trying to push more products.
Also, there are many different skin conditions that can be treated by many more different types of compounds. Trying to consolidate all the active ingredients for treatment of a variety of skin conditions can lead the creation of an irritant rather than a treatment. This is because in order to keep a formulation stable with many different active ingredients, a high quantity of emulsifier is required. High quantities of emulsifiers can be damaging or irritating to the skin.
Therefore, there is a need for a single formulation that is sufficiently stable and safe, and capable of addressing most aging skin problems, such as wrinkles, sun damage, uneven skin tone, tightness, elasticity, rosacea, spider veins, illumination, and the like. In general simply combining various skin care products together can lead to skin irritation for the user, or the combination simply will not mix well.
The present invention is directed to a vehicle for carrying active ingredients wherein the vehicle is nearly completely water-free, preservative-free, and emulsifier-free. Preferably, the vehicle is used to carry an anti-aging formulation that is capable of treating a variety of skin conditions. The formulation contains numerous active ingredients for anti-aging with noticeable results within two weeks or less. In addition to being an all-in-one cream, it passes Repeat Insult Patch Testing (RIPT) test and Preservative Efficacy Testing (PET) without having any preservatives, which has never been done before. This is done by creating a formulation containing almost all active ingredients without the need for emulsifiers that hold the oil and water phases together, resulting in a very balanced pH.
The detailed description set forth below is intended as a description of presently-preferred embodiments of the invention and is not intended to represent the only forms in which the present invention may be constructed or utilized. The description sets forth the functions and the sequence of steps for constructing and operating the invention. However, it is to be understood that the same or equivalent functions and sequences may be accomplished by different embodiments that are also intended to be encompassed within the spirit and scope of the invention.
The present invention is directed towards a water-free, emulsifier-free, and preservative-free vehicle for carrying active ingredients to treat, for example, skin conditions. Numerous active ingredients can be added to the vehicle for treating wrinkles, creating even skin tone, removing dark pigmentation, improving skin elasticity, repairing chemical insult, and treating other skin blemishes associated with aging and exposure to the environment. The present invention is also directed towards a method of preparing the vehicle with an anti-aging composition. The water-free, emulsifier-free, and preservative-free vehicle comprises aloe, pentylene glycol, willow bark extract, ammonium acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP copolymer, egg, and propolis. Each of these components may be present in amounts ranging from 0 percent to about 50% by weight of the total composition (% w/w). Preferably, the components are present in amounts ranging from 8% to about 35%.
In one embodiment, the components of the composition and their approximate percentage by weight are shown in Table 1 by their designation according to the international nomenclature of cosmetic ingredients (INCI). Trade names are provided as examples only and do not limit the scope of the invention of the present application. In the amounts disclosed, the components combine to make an anti-aging formulation that is nearly completely water-free, preservative-free, and emulsifier-free.
