Skin Care Infused with Oxygen – The Importance of Oxygen

There are so many skin care companies out there claiming to have the best products for your skin. All sorts of scientific terms and study results are flung at the consumer, and it’s difficult to determine if a lot of them really make a difference. I found a skin care company that uses oxygen in their products and tried them on my face to see if they would make a difference.

Why Use Oxygen in Skin Care Products?

Up to half the oxygen content in our skin can be lost by the age of 25. As we age, our skin becomes less efficient at renewing itself, resulting in slower cellular metabolism, the reduction of collagen and elastin, and the appearance of fine lines and discoloration. The external effects of sun exposure, air pollution, diet, and day-to-day stress can make skin look dull and dry. When skin is deprived of oxygen, it shows. The skin care products company, Oxygen Botanicals, recommends breathing new life into your skin with their products.

How is Oxygen Botanicals Different?

Oxygen Botanicals is the first skin care line infused with pure oxygen that is not chemically derived. Most oxygen product lines use hydrogen peroxide, which produces oxygen through a chemical reaction. This method can bleach skin and facial hair, and can be drying to the skin. Oxygen Botanicals has developed a unique and proprietary process to stabilize and encapsulate pure oxygen into catezome structures. Pure oxygen and other nutrients are time-released through an advanced liposome delivery system. This highly effective micro-encapsulation technology delivers active ingredients into the upper layers of the skin.

New Bio-Enviro’ technology is a new breakthrough technology which uses catezome structures to suspend Pure Oxygen, a process so time consuming and costly that it has not been duplicated. It uses TIME RELEASE technology: Twelve different sizes of catezomes disperse into the skin approximately every 50 minutes. With twice daily applications, Oxygen Botanicals formulations provide 24 hours of rejuvenating oxygen to the skin. It has been tried and tested by scientists, doctors and estheticians.

Benefits of Botanicals

The researchers at Oxygen Botanical Laboratories have chosen botanical extracts and vitamins that are scientifically useful for the particular benefits which contribute to healthy looking skin. Japanese Green Tea (a potent antioxidant) is infused in every Oxygen Botanicals product. Some of the other benefits of botanical extracts include: (1) Calming: Chamomile, Echinacea, Gotu Kola (Centella Asiatica). (2) Revitalizing & Invigorating: Eucalyptus, Horse Chestnut. (3) Antioxidant: Meadowsweet. (4) Emollient: Soybean.

This all sounds impressive. Now let’s see how I rated some of the products:

Hyaluronic Hydrating Gel

It’s almost the end of the summer and my facial skin needs a boost. My face isn’t suntan; however, I need hydration without making my oily skin look and feel greasy.
Hyaluronic Hydrating Gel
(Click the product name for details) 
is a medium weight gel emollient. It glided over my skin and a small amount  on my fingertip covered a large area.  My skin felt instantly softer and smoother, and in a few minutes the product was absorbed into my skin for a dewy look. Two hours later the product’s effect on the look and feel of my skin had lasted, and my cheek skin looked plumper and firmer. I had concentrated on the sides of my forehead where there were signs of some sun damage and there’s no doubt hydrating your skin with this product improved the look of my skin, smooth and softening small lines on my forehead.
Hyaluronic Hydrating Gel
(Click the product name for details) 
hydrates the skin with 30% hyaluronic acid, which has the ability to bind and retain many times its weight in water. It alleviates effects of severely dry to dehydrated skin, leaving it soft and smooth. It has a pleasant light scent and is suited for all skin types.

Testimonial

A 47 year old woman gave the following Testimonial: “I have used Oxygen Botanicals Hyaluronic Hydrating Gel (Click the product name for details)  around my eyes for relief from the burning, itching, and dryness caused by an allergic reaction. My eyes look absolutely normal now without any lasting effect of the reaction. I know it was because I was very diligent in applying the Hyaluronic Hydrating Gel several times a day.” The company recommends using the product under the eyes, and on the lips, hands, neck and decollete.

Oxygen Botanicals Anti-Oxidant Cream

I also tried their anti-oxidant cream on my face and neck. The cream goes on smoothly and glides over the skin. It’s lightly oiled and has a very light citrusy scent. The company describes its benefits as potent Catechins, anti-oxidants, which counteract free-radical activity by reconditioning and protecting the skin. Japanese Green Tea Extract, containing Catechins, and Vitamins C & E counteract free radical activity to inhibit premature aging. Vitamins A & D act as keratinization regulators to help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, the Anti-Oxidant Cream contains Sorbitol (obtained from leaves, berries, plums, pears, apples, seaweed, and algae) and other humectants to hydrate the skin. The company recommends Anti-Oxidant Cream (Click the product name for details)  for dry skin types.

 

My next post will be a review of Oxygen Botanicals’ acne regimen, ACNE 1-2-3.
