I just looked into urea for skin, looks really promising.
It's really good for dry skin - the product I'm launching tomorrow doesn't have urea as it's oil based, but a urea cream is definitely next on my agenda

Hey @visviva,

the product looks good, I've heard good reports of macademia oil for sebum, I might end up purchasing when my paypal is fixed.

If you happen to make a product that improves skin translucency, I would be very interested.

A korean product of silver vine extract from years ago touted it improved translucency by lowering carbonylation of proteins, but real life test results were kinda meh, I'm hoping you can create a combo to do the same.

Thanks :) I've never even heard of skin translucency being a thing in skincare, is it similar to brightening? I will take a look into it, thank you

Change in optical properties of stratum corneum induced by protein carbonylation in vitro
Vol. 42, No. 1, pp.16‐21, 2008
Decrease in the skin transparency induced by protein carbonylation in the stratum corneum
As far as I can see, most research on it is from Korea and Japan, so it probably isn't well known yet, in the west, and they do like whitening effect so they probably can't be seperated in their research. I think it's called skin transparency too. Related terms are stratum corneum, lipid peroxidation, protein carbonylation and UV damage seems to increase. Seems dry skin is more vulnerable, so I think urea with lipid peroxidation inhibitor could be a good combo.

It's why some faces have an even glow with soft shadowing and others having very shiny and harsh shadowing. :)

Wow interesting concept, I am very intrigued by this. Thank you for the tip - and I definitely agree about the urea as well, best ingredient for hydration

Whaat, just found urea before and after, it is insane, improves translucency very well. Thank you.

Haha, that could become a burden

Honestly though, Skin health and light absorbance is one of the most influential health markers, and girls have to rely on LAYERS of makeup, without even getting close or fail miserably. This is the stuff that make people turn heads.

I'm looking forward to your other products. I'm looking into experimenting with urea for skin, thank you for tips again!

super excited to see- i hope you are using something with pregnenolone ( did i spell that right? ) in it because that stuff is a wonder hormone for skin. i use retinol oil from deciem that i love and a vitamin c spray from the body shop that i love too- i also like pumpkin with glycolic peels but im sure they are toxic. i love the green papaya mask from jan marini but again, loaded with chemicals. i will order some of your stuff and review it when i get it. congrats!

thank you so much! I have never used pregnenolone topically but I'll have to try it out and see what it does! Really glad you are excited about the product, please message me for a 25% discount code if you're thinking of ordering it. Can't wait to hear what you think!
