Age re­ver­sal

Yes, you can turn back the clock when it comes to skincare. It just takes the right for­mu­la­tions, dili­gence and a com­mit­ment to health – in­side and out.

Colorado-based cos­metic physi­cian Dr Ben John­son founded skincare brand Os­mo­sis over ten years ago with the spe­cific in­ten­tion to de­velop prod­ucts that per­ma­nently im­prove skin.

Ben, what are your favourite prod­ucts in the Os­mo­sis range?

“I’m pas­sion­ate about Os­mo­sis serums be­cause they create healthy skin that func­tions at its high­est ca­pac­ity,” he ex­plains. “For­tu­nately, once skin is at op­ti­mum health, it can ac­tu­ally thicken its der­mis, re­pair its bar­rier and heal old wounds. At Os­mo­sis we also make nice mois­tur­iz­ers and masks, but I en­cour­age ev­ery­one to in­vest most of their skincare bud­get on prod­ucts that make per­ma­nent im­prove­ments.”

What are the key Os­mo­sis prod­uct in­gre­di­ents?

“You can’t burn or ex­fo­li­ate your way to youth­ful skin. You need to make the skin stronger. In­gre­di­ents that in­crease the re­pair ca­pac­ity of our skin in­clude tri­ox­olane, which per­ma­nently heals the source of age spots; Zinc Fin­ger Tech­nol­ogy, which per­ma­nently heals bro­ken cap­il­lar­ies; and stem cell-de­rived growth fac­tors that in­crease the over­all pro­duc­tion of the skin. In­ner health and well­ness also pro­mote great skin, and more sup­ple­ments are be­ing de­signed that im­prove in­ter­nal health to treat spe­cific skin con­di­tions.”

How has this changed over the past year or so?

“The move­ment to­wards well­ness prod­ucts in skincare has been rapid in re­cent years. Peo­ple are fi­nally rec­og­niz­ing that many skin con­di­tions are caused by in­ter­nal im­bal­ances. Only a few years ago we blamed ev­ery­thing on ‘bad skin’ when the skin is rel­a­tively con­sis­tent in be­hav­ior and only shows ev­i­dence of mal­func­tion when ex­posed to tox­ins or pathogens.”

What are the most ef­fec­tive anti-age­ing in­gre­di­ents used in skincare to­day?

“Li­po­so­mal reti­nalde­hyde, Li­po­so­mal niaci­namide, Li­po­so­mal chlorella, Li­po­so­mal L-hy­drox­ypro­line, Tri­ox­olane, Zinc Fin­ger Tech­nol­ogy. Sin­gu­larly these in­gre­di­ents are not as ef­fec­tive, how­ever to­gether they form li­po­somes which can in­crease skin pen­e­tra­tion by 600%. What I like about this in­gre­di­ent list is that it’s age-re­vers­ing, rather than anti-age­ing. The dif­fer­ence is us­ing in­gre­di­ents that em­power the skin to per­ma­nently fix old sun dam­age on its own.”

What phi­los­o­phy is at the core of your brand?

Os­mo­sis is try­ing to dra­mat­i­cally shi“ the health of your skin. This in­volves in­creas­ing the nu­tri­ents de­liv­ered by in­creas­ing cir­cu­la­tion in unique ways. It turns out that by age 50 we have 25% less cir­cu­la­tion in the skin which co­in­cides with 25% fewer growth fac­tors, 25% less col­la­gen, 25% more im­per­fec­tions and dis­col­oration, 25% closer turnover and much more. This all in­creases by 1% a year. Os­mo­sis has patented or pro­pri­etary strate­gies to ad­dress each area of loss to overcome the long-held be­lief that skincare can­not make per­ma­nent changes to the skin. Our skin per­forms a mil­lion dif­fer­ent func­tions a minute, it is highly in­tel­li­gent and not ‘bro­ken’ with age. Be­cause of these short­ages, it sim­ply does not have the nutri­tion and tools it needs to main­tain it­self. Os­mo­sis ad­dresses these bot­tle­necks so that the skin can thrive and op­er­ate at its most ef­fi­cient and youth­ful state.”
