08 Oct Rooster Combs In My Skincare?
Wait, there may be rooster comb extract in my skincare? How is that possible?!
“The red combs of roosters and hens turn out to be some of the best sources for the sugar molecule hyaluronan, a compound that some doctors are calling the next big thing after Botox,” as reported by the New York Times.
“It is already used to protect the eye during surgery, reduce inflammation in arthritic knees and prevent postsurgery scar tissue. Most recently, hyaluronan has become known as the latest treatment for plumping up facial wrinkles.”
“At Previse we source our hyaluronic acid from fermented botanicals! Yes, you read that right – fermented botanicals have as much bioavailabilty of hyaluronan as the combs of our fowl friends.”
Thankfully science has improved the availability of of hyaluronan, commonly referred to as hyaluronic acid. At Previse we source our hyaluronic acid from fermented botanicals! Yes, you read that right – fermented botanicals have as much bioavailabilty of hyaluronan as the combs of our fowl friends.
Hyaluronic acid is a clear, gooey substance that is naturally produced by the human body.  HA holds between 500 and 1000 times its own weight in water. HA fills up the spaces between the connective fibers of collagen and elastin in the dermis layer of your skin.
Over time our body’s ability to produce hyaluronan decreases. As a result our skin tends to dry out. As reported by Faith Xue at Byrdie, “Studies have proven that hyaluronic acid is amazingly good at bonding with water molecules, making it a key factor in retaining skin moisture. Lack of moisture is one of the main culprits of aging skin, which is why this ingredient—which attracts moisture to your skin—is a must-have when it comes to repairing your skin’s moisture barrier.”
But I’m Young. Do I Need Hyaluronic Acid Infused Skincare?
Let’s think of HA as a tall drink of water for our skin. Water is the key to life. Hydration is the key to having skin look healthy, dewy and youthful. The plant-based hyaluronic acid used in our Previse recipes helps keep your skin moisturized. Hydrated skin is better able to combat outside aggressors like air pollution.
Plus… hydrated skin is plumper! Plumped skin shows fewer fine lines. Plumped skin is smoother, and has a softer texture. We’ve added hyaluronic to all our serums and moisturizers. That’s right – we’ve inoculated all Previse moisturizers and serums with our lovely vegan, plant-based hyaluronic acid. Help reduce puffiness around your eyes by keeping your Gobo Eye Serum, Daisy Spray Serum, and HydroFoam in your refrigerator. Trust us – the tingly chill when applied to your face is heavenly!
