Ingredient Spotlight: Anti-Pollution Cleanser and Exo-P™
One often overlooked factor of skin health is protection against the pollutants that barrage the skin constantly outdoors. Pollution can cause premature aging, hyperpigmentation, skin conditions like eczema, and acne. Thankfully, adding anti-pollution skincare products to a daily routine is easier than your patients may think. Below we discuss one powerful ingredient for fighting the effects of pollution: Exo-P™.
What Is Pollution?
Pollution is made up of small chemicals called particulate matter that can be both organic and man-made. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), particulate matter, also referred to as “PM”, is a mixture of small particles and liquid made up of nitrates and sulfates, organic chemical, metals, soil, and dust particles. Particles come in a wide range of sizes.
What Is Exo-P™?
To put it simply, Exo-P™ is an ingredient that provides a protective barrier against urban pollution and smog. It is composed of exopolysaccharides found naturally in French Polynesia. Exo-P™ forms a biomimetic shield at the surface of the skin to fight the particulate matter found in pollution and smog that can damage or irritate the skin. Its multi-protective action reduces free radical activity and defends skin from harm by decreasing damage caused by heavy metals and hydrocarbons. In short, it’s a pretty powerful ingredient that packs a major punch against particulate matter.
How Do Anti-Pollution Products Work?
Exo-P™ is a key ingredient in improving or protecting skin that can become smothered or suffocated by air pollution, which is why it’s included in the best anti-pollution products, like our Anti-Pollution Facial Cleanser. Our cleanser works to fight the negative effects of pollution by fighting free radicals and reducing the bond of particulate matter to the skin. Your patients should find an anti-pollution product that contains ingredients like adaptogens and antioxidants to keep their skin from being permanently damaged by air pollution and smog.
What Are The Benefits Of Exo-P™?
Exo-P™ makes a great ingredient in anti-pollution skincare products because it’s fast-acting, natural, and safe. It helps purify dull skin and reveal a fresher, more youthful glow. Exo-P™ also works to fight future damage when used regularly.
It’s important that people are aware of the negative effects of pollution on the skin, especially those who live in a city where pollution and smog is prevalent. Encouraging patients to add an anti-pollution cleanser into their regular skincare routine is one easy way that they can fight free radicals and protect their skin from the damaging effects of pollution.To provide your patients samples of our Anti-Pollution Facial Cleanser at NO charge to you, fill out this simple form!
