I welcome your thoughts and, hopefully, advice on how the cosmetic industry can help with this problem. Together, we may have a significant impact on this issue!
To properly treat cellulite topically, formulators must address the underlying causes to obtain positive results.
There is little scientific evidence supporting skincare products reversing cellulite. However, it only makes sense that applying skincare products that benefit the underlying problems causing cellulite will make a difference. A well thought out product used religiously will reduce or possibly minimize cellulite. And topical products can be performed over the life of the person affected.
Doing nothing will not have a better outcome than using a well thought out skincare product. Even applying a moisturizer is better than nothing!
A key argument for the cosmetic industry to understand that “findings” “conclude” there is no permanent topical cure for cellulite or even proof that topical cellulite treatments work at all. The key terms are “findings” and “conclude.” Just look at the Amazon reviews for “cellulite cream”. There are thousands of reviews, and many of the products obtain 4-4.5-star reviews. If the consumers believe the products are working, well, maybe they are. Would invasive treatments obtain 4.5-star reviews?
Cellulite is a skin condition wherein there are dimpling on the skin. It usually occurs in areas where there are lots of fat deposits. It affects men and women but is more common to occur in women. With the hormone’s estrogen and progesterone, these promote weight gain and deposition of fats in the central area of the body. The skin becomes saggy and looks uneven with the gaps found on the surface.
Following are the most important targets for treating cellulite.
In a nutshell moisturizer allow the extract or biological active ingredient to remain in contact with skin for a longer period of time. This will increase the absorption of extract and thus overall aim of the cosmetic therapy will be achieved.
Human skin has unique properties of which functioning as a physicochemical barrier is one of the most apparent. The human integument (tough outer protective layer) can resist the penetration of many molecules. However, especially smaller molecules can surpass transcutaneous. They can go by the corneal layer, which is thought to form the main deterrent. We argue that the molecular weight (MW) of a compound must be under 500 Dalton to allow skin absorption. Larger molecules cannot pass the corneal layer.
Arguments for this “500 Dalton rule” are; 1) virtually all common contact allergens are under 500 Dalton, larger molecules are not known as contact sensitizers. They cannot penetrate and thus cannot act as allergens in man; 2) the most commonly used cosmeceutical agents applied in topical dermatotherapy are all under 500 Dalton; 3) all known topical drugs used in transdermal drug-delivery systems are under 500 Dalton. For cosmeceutical development purposes, it seems logical to restrict the development of new innovative compounds to a molecular weight of under 500 Dalton, when topical dermatological therapy or percutaneous systemic therapy.
For persons who want to get a fitter body, you can do lots of things about it. Surgery and expensive treatments are not needed because you can get rid of cellulite with natural remedies. These include series of steps you can engage on. With determination and discipline, those skin irregularities can be gone.
Many of the cosmeceuticals are using the extra heat and acidic or alcoholic preservatives which diminishes the biological activity of natural extracts. Best methods to prepare the natural extracts are enzyme assisted extractions and use of water and glycerine instead of hazardous preservatives. Following all extracts can be prepared by enzyme assisted extraction or using water and glycerine as medium.
Elastin and collagens are the primary proteins responsible for maintaining the structure and elasticity of the skin as well as keeping skin firm and supple. Both proteins decrease with age, leading to the shrinkage and wrinkles of the skin.
Natural extracts like non-denatured dill seed extract, work in two ways, either they stop the destruction of elastin and collagen, or they help in the increased production of both essential skin care proteins.
Dill seed extract stimulates elastin and collagen synthesis by activating dermal fibroblasts according to a 2006 study in Experimental Dermatology. Fibroblasts synthesize collagen, elastin, and keratin in the dermis. They assist in wound healing and the prevention of skin aging.
Note: Dill seed extract is different from dill seed oil. Most research has been conducted on dill seed extract.
NON-EXTRACTS FOR CELLULITE
Following non-extracts are also proven good benefits to cellulite.
