Adaptogens & Skincare
| \ ə-ˈdap-tə-jəns\ | noun

1. nontoxic substances that increase the body’s ability to resist damaging effects of stress or restore normal physiological functioning (Annual Reviews | Annual Review of Pharmacology)

What does adaptogenic mean in skincare?

Adaptogenic ingredients from plants adapt their function to your body’s needs. So what does the skin need that these powerhouse adaptogens can help?

1. Strengthen the Natural Repair Cycle
The human body naturally reproduces skin cells, not only to repair injuries but older weaker cells are frequently discarded and replaced to protect us from harmful pathogens. Adaptogens strengthen this repair cycle because they increase the body’s resistance to stressors and prevent exhaustive effects from inflammation without causing harm or disrupting normal physiological functions. (US National Library of Medicine1)

2. Protect from Environmental Stress
Our skin is the frontline defense against harmful external pathogens, foreign toxins, and invading contaminants that stress our body and immune system. Adaptogens  reverse and prevent damaging effects from UV rays, free radicals, and toxins by naturally increasing antioxidants and building a stronger protective barrier in the skin (US National Library of Medicine2)

3. Delay Natural Aging Progress
As we age, our bodies are slower to produce and replace cells in the skin. This looks like fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and sagging. When adaptogens restore and enhance the body’s natural repair cycle to continually replace and strengthen fibrous tissue, the increase of cellular turnover slows and can even repair these signs of aging. (US National Library of Medicine3)
