An Ancient Ingredient Gets Some Buzz

July 28th, 2009



imageTURMERIC \'ter-me-rik/n./1. An Indian perennial herb of the ginger family with a large aromatic yellow rhizome;/n./2. Often used as a coloring agent, a flavoring, or a stimulant in food;/n./ 3. Known as Indian Saffron;/n./ 4. Packed with powerful antioxidants to protect the skin, and provide intense hydration to increase skin's firmness, e.g., "skin feels tauter, firmer without a drying feeling."

Who says it should just stay in the kitchen anyway when turmeric whipped up in skin care can do so much? Bid wrinkles, fine lines and sallow skin good bye. According to Dr. Woodson C, Merrell, leading Herbal and Nutritional Medicine specialist, "There are a number of dermatological studies showing the skin's ability to absorb Turmeric, allowing it into the cells beneath the surface, in addition to its distribution throughout the body when taken orally."

imageDDF has conducted some studies of their own while formulating their new range of skin care, Advanced Protocol that harnesses this superhero spice. It has been clinically proven to work on fine lines and wrinkles. In a study, users noticed significantly firm skin in 10 minutes with continued improvements after regular use. Another clinical study conducted by DDF showed the Turmeric Complex was proven to reduce 82 percent of free radicals to protect surface skin. What does this mean? Those crazy, free radicals that spin around in the air and cause skin destruction take antioxidants from the cream, NOT your skin's natural supply of defenders.

Miracle? No, just good science. The DDF brand integrates science into all their products, while building upon the wealth of dermatology and skin wellness. The range consists of a Micro-Exfoliation Cleanser, Eye Firming Concentrate, Advanced Firming Cream, and Moisture Defense UV Cream SPF 15.

Another antiaging product that truly works? Well, studies are proving a wrinkle reduction, and you heard it here first, Retin-A may have a challenger to contend with.

Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin.
