All about: O Cosmedics Youth Activating Oil Balm

I love the fact that after years of using oils on my skin – some harder to source than others – a lot of the big beauty names are jumping on the bandwagon in the coolest way possible. It’s interesting to see the way some brands have reinterpreted the facial oil as well, the latest being O Cosmedics who have recently released their Youth Activating Oil Balm.
If you’re unfamiliar with the brand, O Cosmedics is a medical-grade, professional skincare line, which “utilises highly concentrated active ingredients to rejuvenate your complexion and achieve
optimum skin health”. Like the sound of that? Me too. They have created some pretty great – and proven – products over the years, but this newbie has to be one of my favourites thus far.
Youth Activating Oil Balm is essentially a corrective treatment serum that utilises super rich vitamins and fatty acids to increase skin’s lipid levels and restore skin barrier protection whilst continuously treating, nourishing and repairing skin from the appearance of ageing. To me this means that it’s perfect for times of seasonal change and travel, as well as post-procedure if you’re someone who loves to use lasers and peels.
It features three new key active ingredients to the O Cosmedics range, a blend of active botanicals and a luxurious feel, so it feels beautiful on the skin as well as doing some majorly good stuff.
Klotho is a protein that is part of every person’s biological make up and is scientifically proven to relate to signs of ageing. As we grow older, this protein begins to deteriorate, and signs of ageing become more visible. Lakesis (AKA Crystal Tears) is a key ingredient in the new balm, and is actually an oil derived from the sap or ‘crystal drops’ of a native Greek tree that contains youth-activating properties. This incredible ingredient stimulates the youth protein Klotho, which in turn, reactivates cellular activity and supporting fibres in skin and acts as an anti-ageing treatment –amazing!
Youth Activating Oil Balm also features a new super-ingredient, L22, which is composed of Jojoba and Macadamia Oils that are combined with olive-sourced squalene – an oil renowned for its anti-ageing properties - plant sterols and sterol esters to create a product with a similar lipid composition of a healthy 22-year-old.
Lastly, third super ingredient Camellia Japonica has many therapeutic, cosmetic and medicinal qualities and has been a huge feature of Asian beauty preparations for some time now. A natural seed enriched with powerful antioxidants, as well as anti-inflammatory and anti-wrinkle
properties, this ingredient also helps to keep skin supple and hydrated.
