Decoding Skincare Ingredients

Ever wondered what parabens are? Or Sodium Hyaluronate? We’ve decoded some skincare terminology so you can understand what’s in your products….

Derived from Vitamin A, retinol is a powerful anti-ageing ingredient which re-textures skin and reduces wrinkles. The vitamin reduces and reserves sun damage and is subsequently included in products within our anti-ageing Gold Collection; the Gold Eye Lift and Gold Night Drops.

Extracted from the bakuchi seed, backuchiol is a natural alternative to retinol, reducing the depth and appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by boosting collagen production. It can be found in our Miracle Facial Oil.

Sodium Hyaluronate
Non-oily sodium hyaluronate binds moisture to the skin to ensure long lasting hydration. In our Mineral UV Shield for example Sodium Hyaluronate (high molecular weight) forms a protective film over the skin to keep out aggressive pollutants, while allowing the skin to retain moisture more easily.

Parabens acts as a preservative in cosmetics and personal care products. There has been much debate throughout the years whether parabens are safe for you or not. Omorovicza uses high- performance, naturally derived alternatives to commonly used synthetics, ensuring the Omorovicza experience is one of total luxury and maximum efficacy. None of our products subsequently contain parabens.

Bifida Ferment
Bifida Ferment is a probiotic that helps repair DNA by strengthening the skin’s immune system. This ingredient can be found in both our Intensive Hydralifting Cream and Gold Night Drops.

Lactobionic Acid
It is a sugar acid, being formed by oxidation of lactose. It is an excellent antioxidant and stimulates cellular turnover, brightening and refining the complexion without irritating the skin. You can find the Lactobionic Acid in our Refining Facial Polisher and Blue Diamond Super Cream.

Copper Gluconate
Fans of matte skin should know this ingredient by heart. Copper Gluconate is a blue-green crystal which acts as an astringent and regulator of sebum production. The ingredient can be found in a number of Omorovicza products: the Copper Peel, Cleansing Foam, Refining Facial Polisher, Blue Diamond Concentrate, Blue Diamond Resurfacing Peel, Blue Diamond Super Cream and Hydra Melting Cleanser.

Keratolytic Enzymes
This ingredient stimulates skin cells to enable oxygenation and the transport of nutrients from cell to cell. By regulating skin cell renewal, it improves rough and ageing skin, lighting and brightening skin. As it all happens on an enzymatic level, the ingredient is ideal for those with sensitive skin and is present in our Blue Diamond Resurfacing Peel.

Dipalmitoyl Hydroxyproline
A bit of a mouthful, Dipalmitoyl Hydroxyproline is plant-derived and represents one of the most powerful ingredients against skin ageing. It improves skin’s barrier function and helps to tighten the lipid matrix which instantly remodels and lifts the skin. This ingredient can be found in the Intensive Hydralifting Cream and Blue Diamond Super Cream.

Humic Acid
With a very complex chemical composition this ingredient is a potent antioxidant. Working at a cellular level to reduce inflammation, the ingredient is easily absorbed into the skin as it provides molecular nutrients and reactivates healthy cell production, smoothing wrinkles and rejuvenating the skin. Our entire Moor Mud Collection contains Humic Acid.
