Key ingredients of Asian Secrets


So you've read all the raves for Asian Secrets lulur on GirlTalk and on my posts. Have you ever wondered though - what makes Asian Secrets effective in terms of whitening and moisturizing? Well, some of its key ingredients are green tea, Vitamin E and squalane. They're nothing extraordinary since there are tons of beauty products featuring the same ingredients but together they are an unstoppable force.

Green tea helps with sun protection and aging. It combats free radicals and reduce inflammation instead of blocking UV rays (which is what sunblock does). The result is smoother, more supple skin.

Vitamin E is an antioxidant that skin cells from ultra violet light, pollution, drugs, and other elements that produce cell damaging free radicals. Like green tea, it also helps with sun protection and skin aging. It is directly absorbed on the skin which increases its efficacy.

Squalane (a more saturated and stable version of squalene) is a substance derived from plants like rice bran, wheat germ, and olives. Fun trivia: squalane used to be extracted from the liver of sharks, but this practice has since been banned and dropped by major cosmetic companies. Anyway, squalane moisturizes the skin without that greasy feel other oils have.

Hope this helps you appreciate your Asian Secrets lulur more! ;)
