Ingredients Matter: Effective Skincare Starts at the Source

Ingredients Matter: Effective Skincare Starts at the Source

At NANNETTE de GASPÉ we care about the health of your skin and believe that you deserve the best products, regardless of your age. Nourishing your skin effectively can help you feel great and give you the confidence you need to face the day.

When selecting products to keep your skin healthy and looking vibrant, a critical first step is to check the ingredients. As they say, skincare begins at the source.

Why it's Crucial to Get to Know the Ingredients in Your Skincare Products

Let’s get right to it. The skin is the body’s largest organ and literally absorbs everything while helping to protect you from everyday environmental aggressors. With this in mind, it makes perfect sense to check the ingredients that you put on your skin everyday.

High quality ingredients not only perform better but also give you the confidence of knowing that what your body is absorbing is safe. What people may not realize is that some ingredients found within many skincare products, can actually be harmful to your overall health while others, although they may not be harmful, have gotten a bad wrap with the media which then has blown their entire story out of proportion (ie. parabens and fragrance to name but a few) - but we’ll save that topic for another day!

Learning about the ingredients found within your beauty and skincare products can be empowering, allowing you to take control over your overall health and wellness. The more knowledge and power you have, the better you can make decisions and achieve results. With time, you should also be able to understand what works best for your skin, even around your neck or eyes, because what works for one person, may not necessarily work for someone else.

NANNETTE de GASPÉ leverages innovation and prides itself with developing only the most high-performing and effective formulations to create the best skincare for women around the world. We began as a biotech company with a strong focus on science and innovation, leveraging our thorough understanding of our proprietary delivery technology; ingredient composition and benefits; and the biology, function and scientific processes of the skin. We understand the value of using the best ingredients to achieve the most highly effective products with the best results. All of our products are dermatologically tested, paraben free, and as natural as possible without compromising performance.

Here is a glimpse of some of the ingredients we source, and the reasons for which we feel so strongly about them:

Silver Mushroom & Beet Root Extract

Sodium Hyaluronate, a derivative of Hyaluronic Acid, has often been heralded by skincare gurus and celebrities alike because of its plumping and moisture binding benefits while also helping to improve the symptoms of severe skin inflammation. Did you know that there exists an ingredient that is even more powerful than this when it comes to youth-restoring, hydration, and anti-inflammatory properties? As it turns out, a natural ingredient by the name of Silver Mushroom & Beet Root Extract is about 400 times more effective than Sodium Hyaluronate. This powerful and natural extract plumps and smooths the skin instantly reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while also dramatically improving the hydration of the skin for an overall youthful-looking complexion.

Marine Collagen

Marine Collagen is another ingredient that we are very fond of at NANNETTE de GASPÉ. Marine Collagen features many antioxidant properties that prevent and repair skin damage caused by environmental factors such as age, gravity and sun-damage. As the natural Collagen in our bodies diminishes with age, the introduction of Marine Collagen binds with the natural Collagen and water found in our skin and is able to re-volumize it as it multiplies 10-fold in volume thus

Other benefits of Marine Collagen include:

Enhanced Skin Elasticity

If you're looking to restore the bounce and suppleness in your skin, using products containing Marine Collagen is a must. Marine Collagen not only helps to restore your skin’s elasticity, but also improves the skin’s overall texture and hydration.

Diminished Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Marine Collagen binds with your skin’s natural hydration and collagen, creating a plumping effect that diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. To prolong the look of youthful skin, we recommend introducing skincare products containing Marine Collagen into your beauty routine. 

Kakadu Plum

Kakadu Plum is also an ingredient that is widely used across several NANNETTE de GASPÉ skincare products. This Australian flowering fruit is heralded as being the richest known source of Vitamin C in the world! It also features a ton of other antioxidants, vitamins, and nutrients that are needed in order to maintain a vibrant and youthful looking skin.

Below are some of the added skincare benefits of using our skincare products containing Kakadu Plum:

Reduces Blemishes

Kakadu Plum is indisputably one of the best known ingredients used to help alleviate skin blemishes and scarring. It gets rid of any bacteria that might cause them on your face and allows you to get the much-desired even tone that most women still crave.

Helps to Alleviate Sensitive Skin

Most women will say they have sensitive skin, with symptoms such as redness, itching, and lesions appearing in some cases. Kakadu plum is known to eliminate a plethora of both bacterial and fungal infections, and other sensitivities.

Indian Gentian Leaf Stem Cells

A bioactive molecule derived from an herb native to the Himalayas with many therapeutic properties, including wound healing, helps with increased cellular regeneration to re-densify the skin and reduce visible wrinkles.

Hyaluronic Acid

2 forms of HA with very low molecular weight  provide enhanced trans-dermal absorption  resulting in superior moisture binding  properties and an instant plumping effect while visibly reducing the signs of wrinkles.

Brazilian Clay

We use this ingredient because it rids your skin of impurities so that it is always clear and smooth. Brazilian clay should also be a must-have ingredient in your preferred cosmetics if you have been dying for a firm, radiant skin. It makes the latter more elastic and improves blood circulation.

At NANNETTE DE GASPÉ, we use all 12 types of Brazilian clays, allowing you to relish all the advantages of minerals such as Sodium, Iron, Aluminum, Titanium, and Calcium.

Lipid Complexes

Various Lipid Complexes are used in NANNETTE de GASPÉ products in order to help maintain your skin’s natural tightness and vibrance over time. The Lipid Complexes used within our products feature blends of other oils, including Macadamia Seed Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, and various forms of Vitamin E. With regular use, you will most certainly notice that your skin appears more firm  and brighter.

Niacinamide (Pro-Vitamin B3)

We love using Niacinamide (also known as Pro-vitamin B3) in our products because of its amazing skin hydration benefits; it can also help combat blemishes and protect from any environmental damage. Other benefits of Niacinamide include:

  • Helping to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Helping to boost Keratin production and the skin’s ability to fight off harmful environmental aggressors
  • Visibly reducing the appearance of pores and other skin imperfections
  • Assisting in the regulation of oil on the skin
  • Helping to diminish blemishes and redness

These are just some of the amazing and effective natural ingredients NANNETTE DE GASPÉ incorporates into our award-winning skincare products. We are dedicated to offering the best results-driven skincare that is rooted in Science.
