Formula of the products is based on ancient recipes of Chinese, Tibetan and Altai medicine that have been proved by the centuries of effective use. We enclose recipes of oriental medicine in innovative technologies for maximum preserving of unique properties of natural ingredients.
CHINESE MEDICINE IN COSMETICS
Herbal medicine is a vital part of traditional Chinese medicine, going back several thousand years. Chinese herbs are not only highly valued medicinal raw materials, but they also contain beauty properties.Chinese herbs’ most accurate descriptions of nursing properties come from the famous medical book from the Ming Dynasty period in 1596, “Ben Cao Gang Mu”, which describes more than 170 types of herbs used for beautification. This extremely valuable heritage of the Middle Kingdom reaches its heyday in the modern, western world. The growing interest in eco-cosmetology, i.e. products based exclusively on natural plant extracts, with no synthetic chemical feedstock, makes us more willing to reach for specifics made from of natural ‘gifts’.
Chinese Herbs for Beautiful and Healthy Skin
Antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, itching and acne – antiseptic and antibacterial properties can be credited by the presence of alkaloids, saponins and essential oils. Herbs such as: Alkanna tinctoria, pagoda tree, rhubarb, aloe Vera, Japanese knotweed rhizome, angelica, Williams elder twig, peach blossom, wild mint, peony, Chinese yellow gentian and herbs of mysterious sounding names: Chai Hu, Ku Shen, Zhe Bei Mu, Yi Yi Ren, Dan Shen, Yu jin effectively treat dandruff, relieve itching, normalize the activity of the sebaceous glands, reduce sebum production and decrease the symptoms of acne.
Anti-ageing – those properties contained in herbs – vitamins, polysaccharides, flavonoids, minerals and plant hormones stimulate the metabolism of skin cells, speed up the process of renewal and regeneration. They act as antioxidants, protecting cells against the damaging effects of free radicals. We can distinguish different anti-ageing herbs: ginseng, angelica, pearl, Rhodiola root, ginkgo Japanese knotweed root, barberry, the fruit of Chinese magnolia-vine , the root of Chinese cochineal, San Qi, Rehmannia (Chinese foxglove), Jiaogulan, or Cha Ye Huang Qi, Dan Shen, and Dan Pi.
Improve the firmness and elasticity of the skin – tannins, saponins, and silicic acid increase the synthesis of collagen and elastin fibers that strengthen and rebuild the skin, making it more resilient, flexible and stronger. Herbs that contain elasticizing properties: aloe Vera, ivy, horsetail, European white birch or common quince fruit.
Absorbing the UV rays and leveling sun spots – Due to the presence of the tyrosinase enzyme, herbs act as an antioxidant neutralizing free radicals and absorb UV rays. In addition, they control the process of pigment (melanin) production, preventing the development of dark spots. They also have the properties to reduce occurring stains. Those herbs are: the thyroid Baikal, chamomile, Japanese cinnamon, Szechwan lovage rhizome, ivy, peony, dodder seed, aloe and Chai Hu (Bupleurum), Lian Qiao.
Improving microcirculation in the skin – the presence of flavonoids strengthens the blood vessel walls, while reducing their permeability and preventing puffiness. Better blood flow ensures proper transport of oxygen and nutrients and building blocks, which determine the proper functioning of the skin. On the other hand, a better flow of lymph facilitates the better the removal of toxins (waste products). Herbs that have these stimulant properties include: ginseng, Scutellaria baicalensis, astragalus, safflower, tamarisk, and Dan shen and Ganoderma (Lingzhi / Reishi Mushroom).
To prevent hair loss and strengthen the hair follicles – which is due to; saponins, lactones and alkaloids. Herbs that contain these ingredients eliminate itching and irritation of the scalp, strengthen and nourish hair, stop hair loss and stimulate its growth. These herbs among others are: safflower, pearl, Chinese tree of life, ginseng root knotweed, Coix seed – coconut, Atractylodes rhizome and Huang Qi, Bai Zhu, Sha Ren, Shou Wu, Chen Pi, Fu Ling, Dang Gui, Chuan Xiong and others.
Nanoparticles and other nanostructured materials have unique properties which cannot be obtained when working with a bigger form of the same material. The application of those special properties has been suggested in many industries; however the cosmetic industry is one of them- eager to make the most of the opportunities presented by nanotechnology.Nano materials have been used to try and improve the performance of a wide range of products, starting off with moisturizers and anti-ageing creams ending on hair care. TianDe uses Nano-technology mostly when delivering active components to our skin.
Benefits of Nanomaterials in Cosmetics
The two main uses for nanoparticles in cosmetic products are UV filtering and delivery of active ingredients.
Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are both used extensively in sunscreens to prevent UV damage to the skin – the Nano formulations of these materials have been proved to give much better performance than larger particles, reflecting visible light and absorbing UV with very a high efficiency.
A wide range of nanostructures has been proposed as delivery mechanisms for cosmetic ingredients in moisturizers, anti-ageing creams, and other skincare products – from lipid nanoparticles to dendritic or hyper branched polymers. Again, these nanostructured materials show much more efficiency in delivery of the active ingredient to the skin cells.
Lipid nanoparticles are especially effective, as they can merge with the lipid bilayer in cell membranes, making it easy for the compounds which would otherwise not be able to enter the cell to do so.
Lipid nanostructures and dendritic biopolymers provide the additional benefit of being totally non-toxic and biocompatible. This contrasts with the metal and metal oxide nanoparticles, as there are still doubts about their safety for dermal use.
- The main difference between cosmetic products using Nano-technology and traditional cosmetics is that traditional ones don’t penetrate the skin deep enough; they are just creating a barrier on the skin surface, hydrating it. Therefore, they don’t slow down the aging, and only create a mask while the product is being used, not afterwards.
- Nano products successfully replace surgery and don’t damage the skin. They prevent or slow down premature skin aging with a deep action at the cellular level.
- They stimulate the body’s natural processes to maintain the skin tone. They penetrate the epidermal barrier in the deeper layers of the skin, moisturize the skin, stimulate cell renewal and act upon the metabolism of skin cells.
- Products containing Nano particles: micronutrients, vitamins, collagen, hyaluronic acid – are all natural ingredients that preserve the skin’s youthful appearance. These ingredients are delivered to the skin by the use of Nano-particles, as they are one million times smaller than sand particles; they are able to penetrate the skin deeply.
The Nano-particles acting like a sponge, they have active substances and vitamins that are absorbed only to those cells that need those substances.
The Nano particles:
- Penetrate deeply and quickly into the skin where they are needed.
- Protect and stimulate the skin’s natural functions.
- Substances are completely taken in by the skin without losing useful properties.
The next step in the discovery of Nano-particles has been creating a so called Nano complex; combining active substances, which stimulate one another and can be pre-programmed to a specific/or solve a specific problem.These complexes provide optimal living conditions in various areas of the skin cells. They deliver special moisturizing ingredients and restorative compounds in the deepest layers of the skin.
What are cosmeceuticals and how do they work?
Cosmeceuticals are scientifically produced products, which contain biologically active ingredients that have proven clinical benefits. When applied, these active ingredients are able to reach the deeper dermal layers of the skin, allowing them to make noticeable changes in the skin. These changes can include reducing acne, hydrating the skin, diminishing the appearance of ageing and sun damage and promoting a healthy, radiant complexion.
