We all want to maintain a youthful, healthy appearance, but it seems every force of nature is working against exactly that, and aging skin is one of the biggest challenges. Anti-aging skin care products make it much easier, and when the active ingredients are natural, so much the better! But is there really a difference? We certainly think so.
Without going into too much detail about the chemistry of how our ingredients work, we’d like to give an overview of why we are proud to offer a line of natural products. Here are three reasons which started the path we have stuck with.
1 – Natural Products Have a Proven Track Record
From the beginning, Chamonix’s new anti-aging products have been developed to provide natural support for maintaining your great looks by reducing the appearance of fine lines and face wrinkles without the risk of doing more harm than good. When the skin care products for aging skin were first conceived, there were already many pharmaceutical products on the market, but while they may have created the desired effect on the surface, harmful ingredients can have serious consequences.
Our founder, George Faltaous, was a pharmacist by trade, so he had the knowledge and experience to come to the rescue when a customer asked him for help. She had tried an assortment of products that claimed they would help reduce the effects of time on her aging skin, but she was not happy with the results she was getting.
Mr. Faltaous was up for the challenge, and calling upon his knowledge of nutrition as well as chemistry, he focused on collagen builders and antioxidants, which work to protect and support the skin, rather than fighting it. And since they would be applied directly to the skin, he wanted a medium that would safely allow the most of the beneficial ingredients to be absorbed. Calendula flower extract is a popular ingredient that has been used for hundreds of years for its healing properties.
Grape seed oil is another natural ingredient with a long history. There isn’t much documentation on its original use, but it is mentioned in the Old Testament of the Bible as being consumed for health benefits, so even if they didn’t know just how it worked thousands of years ago, people knew it did something good for them. In the 1970s, powerful anti-oxidant compounds in grape seeds were identified, so now we know what kind of benefits the ancient people got from it, and how to maximize its benefits.
2 – Skin Care Products for Aging Skin Must Not Have Toxic Side Effects
By including Vitamin E, Vitamin A, and Ester-C as primary antioxidant ingredients in our anti-aging skin care products, we provide products that are known to be safe.
Many people suffer from an irritated skin condition as a result of using creams with certain preservatives and fragrances. While we can’t claim Chamonix products are completely preservative free, we make sure to use only ingredients that are known to be safe, so even if you don’t know what some of them are, you won’t find mysterious chemicals with long unpronounceable names listed on our labels.
Some ingredients may sound pretty foreign. For example, hyaluronic acid might sound a bit scary, but it is actually something that occurs naturally in your body and is even being taken orally for some joint disorders. It is used in our products because it has an amazing ability to moisturize the skin.
3 – It’s What You Said You Want!
Our customers love being able to feel good about rubbing calendula-based products into their skin instead of something with a very scary sounding label. Clearly, the most important thing about skin care products for aging skin is that they get results and really do reduce the appearance of wrinkles and dark circles—but in this time when there are so many new pharmaceuticals coming out every day that it’s difficult to keep track of them all, and impossible to understand all the potential side effects.
Women often tell us that they want everything they put on or in their bodies to be as natural as possible. That’s especially true for those who need anti-aging products for sensitive skin. They have much more confidence in trying a product with the same base as natural creams for newborn babies than they do in a mix of chemical ingredients that they can’t even hope to read, much less interpret.
