Inorganic compounds

 

You may have heard of mineral sunscreens, sulfur for acne treatment or miraculous clay face masks. These skin care products are based on inorganic compounds and minerals. Some of inorganic compounds do not have ability to penentrate dermal layers, yet do excellent job on the surface of skin. E.g. main ingredients of mineral sunscreens Zinc Oxide and Titanium Oxide. Others are well absorbed and influence aspect of skin from within: interaction with skin antioxidant enzymes, influence on collagen production and antibacterial activity turn minerals into strong advocates of firm and flourishing skin.
