Lately there have been some unexpected (and downright strange) ingredients popping up in the skin care aisle. Apparently snake venom is the new Botox, mink oil is the new coconut oil, and kale is just as good on your body as it is in your stomach. That's right, you should be slathering vegetables all over your face, and this list is taking organic beauty to a whole new level. Each of these actives have been proven to give you brighter, tighter skin, says Stylelist. You can shop the awesome products packed with these unexpected ingredients and when your friends ask why the heck you're using snail cream, you can wow them with your scientific knowledge.
If you're a foodie, you know that there is nothing more luxurious than caviar. But did you also know that you can smear your face with the stuff for smoother skin? Some facial masks use caviar extract to erase the signs of aging as you snooze.
It seems like everyone is adding chia seeds to their recipes for filling, omega-rich snacks. Well, apparently we should have be throwing the mix into our serums and creams too.
OK, the cosmetic products containing this kind of serum doesn't have real snake venom in it. Insted, they re-create a similar numbing effect that freezes fine lines and wrinkles. So, you can forget Botox and ask for a shot of snake venom instead.
Would you let a snail crawl all over your face in the name of beauty? Thankfully, companies have bottled the skin benefits of the slime so that isn't necessary. Products containing snail slime promise a more even skin tone and boosted elasticity.
SALMON HATCHERY WATER
It's likely you've never heard of salmon hatchery water, but it's the primary active ingredient used in skin care products. The special liquid holds an antiaging enzyme released during the hatching of salmon eggs, which helps create a wrinkle-free facade.
Royal jelly — used to feed the queen and larvae in the beehive — is used also as a star ingredient to brighten skin. Unlike honey, Royal Jelly is not collected by the honey bees from flowers. It is a creamy white or pale yellowish substance specially created by worker bees, which mix honey and bee pollen with enzymes in the glands of their throats to produce the extraordinary food (see details here).
