Trehalose Formulated into Skin Care

Trehalose has such amazing qualities verified by science that you will see this healthful sugar added to many food products, skin care products, and no telling what else in the future.  Many people are eating more healthful foods simply by adding trehalose, especially on cereals, tea, and coffee.  Many science papers and information on the sugar trehalose are posted on The Endowment for Medical Research website at www.endowmentmed.org

I am not selling the famous skin care product by Clinique, but they have just reformulated for the first time since 1989 and added trehalose to one of their best selling moisturizers.

Here is what they say about it.

A best-selling moisturiser, launched 19 years ago, gets even better, writes SYIDA LIZTA AMIRUL IHSAN

IN a world where beauty products are as quickly launched as they are discontinued, news of a certain 19-year-old gel being reformulated piques interest.

Question such as “Why?” and “What’s the big deal?” abound.

After all, if it is marketing gimmick the brand is looking for, launching a new range would give more impact and oomph, not to mention the desired editorial space.

IN a world where beauty products are as quickly launched as they are discontinued, news of a certain 19-year-old gel being reformulated piques interest.

Question such as “Why?” and “What’s the big deal?” abound.

After all, if it is marketing gimmick the brand is looking for, launching a new range would give more impact and oomph, not to mention the desired editorial space.

But Clinique has decided that instead of toasting something new, it will pay tribute to one of its best-selling moisturiser — Moisture Surge Extra Thirsty Skin Relief — by making it more potent for the skin.

Reformulated for the first time since its debut in June 1989, the moisturiser — now called Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief — boasts prolonged moisture for 12 hours.

And like any other classic, fans have come up with various ways of using it. Clinique public relations manager Yen Chong uses it before her facial to “reduce the pain of extraction”, which makes perfect sense because with softer, more moistened skin, the process is less daunting.

Or leave it on for five minutes and tissue off as a quick pick-me-up mask, a trick before an important date or if you are on the plane where the air is dry.

Conventionally, it is to be used as a daily moisturiser. If you are looking to enhance moisture, use it after your moisturiser or use it over make-up by tapping the product on the face, whenever your skin feels dry during the day.

So how do you know when the skin is thirsty? Push your cheeks up with your finger and if you can see fine lines, it means your skin doesn’t have enough moisture.

The reasons are various. You may not drink enough water (coffee and tea don’t count), are stressed or don’t get adequate rest.

In any case, Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief is a topical application to address this problem. The reformulated product contains hydrolysed extensin, an ingredient found in carrots which acts like a coat to defend skin against fluctuations in changing humidity conditions that affect moisture level.

Other new ingredients are trehalose and sorbitol, derived from sugar to maximise the skin’s ability to attract moisture from the environment.
