Finding The Best Scar Cream: Top Ingredients To Look For
Even though scarring is a natural process, it can be distressing to some individuals - especially when the scars are linked to trauma. Researchers are always on the lookout for exciting new remedies for scars and the best ingredients to address these pesky patches.
Scar Cream Ingredients That Get Results
Some of the best scar cream ingredients include silicone, honey, vitamin E, retinol, salicylic acid, onion bulb extract, calendula flower, arnica flower, and polypeptides. A more recent discovery is the amazing benefits that silicone can have in scar recovery and lightening. At Rejuvaskin, we understand that it can be overwhelming when you’re trying to figure out which scar cream will work the best for your needs - here are some of the best performing ingredients that you should be on the lookout for:
Silicone is the latest breakthrough in scar remedies. Silicone is able to rehydrate and plump up the skin; this promotes both healing and prevents the formation of scar tissue in the first place. This treatment is most effective when the wound is still healing - damaged skin needs moisture to heal properly and avoid severe scarring.
In its natural form, honey is the sticky matter produced by a combination of enzyme activity, plant matter, and bacteria. The healthy bacteria present in honey are able to activate the body's immune processes for healing and exfoliate for a brighter skin tone.
This common vitamin is an oxidant that can influence gene expression. Vitamin E repairs wounds and regenerates damaged tissue cells.
Retinol is a form of vitamin A; this vitamin speeds up the turnover and replacement of skin cells to reduce the appearance of skin scars. We have seen that its application on fresh scars is highly beneficial.
A common acne-fighting compound, salicylic acid encourages rapid skin healing through drying out the top layer of skin and revealing the layer underneath. It also helps to remove redness and swelling from the scar area; this helps to reduce the appearance of scarring.
This extract contains proteins with anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. The product extracted for use on the skin usually contains vitamins A, B, and C.
The extracted oils and compounds from this flower have anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties - all things that our skin loves.
Scar wounds and fibrosis occurring at the cutaneous level can be healed with the application of peptides (small chains of amino acids). Polypeptides can also limit and decrease the levels of inflammatory proteins; this stimulates cell communication which, in turn, helps to repair skin damage.
Arnica is nature's magic eraser. Not only does it have anti-inflammatory properties, but it also is extremely effective at making skin soft and supple.
