For centuries, aventurine has been a gemstone reputed to help energy flow, especially in terms of dissipating negative energies to open the door to more positive energies. Because of this, aventurine has often been associated with opportunity and optimism that come from positive energy flow. With skin, aventurine’s benefits are more practical: it soothes inflamed skin and protects it against acne and other inflammatory conditions.
Maximizing the Power of Nature in Skincare
As it did with other gemstones with both holistic and skincare uses, Kristals Cosmetics looked to maximize aventurine’s properties in developing an innovative line of anti-aging skin care products. The deep dive of the researchers into the potential of gemstone-infused cosmetics has produced a wide range of products for revitalizing skin, among them AVENTURINE Collagen Booster Serum. This leading-edge skincare serum uses peptides, an exciting new class of compounds known as cell-communicating ingredients, which can help tell a skin cell to behave normally when it’s behaving abnormally or keeping other substances from making the cell act the wrong way.
Leading-Edge Ingredients in Concert
In the case of Kristals Cosmetics’ AVENTURINE Collagen Booster Serum, the cell-communicating ingredient used is palmitoyl tetrapeptide. This compound regenerates collagen fibers in skin cells by acting as a sort of messenger. Besides this peptide, the AVENTURINE Collagen Booster Serum also works in pro-vitamin B5 and niacinamide, both proven in studies to improve skin texture and skin tone issues. Another leading-edge ingredient in this serum is Matrixyl 3000, a peptide that has been show to stimulate cells to produce more collagen production, which is key for younger-looking skin. Hydrolyzed elastin rounds out the ingredient list: this is a form of elastin with smaller molecules that penetrates the skin better and thus helps improve both moisture and suppleness.
