Okay, I’ll be the first to admit it: placenta skin care sounds absolutely gross. However, placenta cells have been a popular ingredient in Korean skin care for years and now western skin care has finally caught up. The benefits of placenta include: increased moisture, anti-aging effects and the treatment of acne scars. Placental extracts also help soothe irritation and redness caused by dry or sensitive skin conditions such as rosacea. Let’s take a closer look at the use of placenta in skin care and how to make it a part of your routine.
Placenta creams and masks use placental extracts. They generally come from sheep placenta. The placenta contains nutrients minerals, amino acids and hormones that are beneficial to the skin.
Admittedly, there hasn’t been a ton of research into placenta skin care. Early studies show great promise, but the benefits are yet to have been conclusively proven; it’s currently all theory-based.
The placenta is rich in amino acids, vitamins and minerals. It’s also known for it’s anti-inflammatory properties which help to soothe sensitive skin conditions such as rosacea or eczema.
Placental extracts are effective at treating acne scarring because they stimulate collagen production that can reduce the appearance of scars over time. This is especially powerful in combination with derma rolling and LED therapy.
Incorporating placenta in your routine can also lead to increased moisture levels and a more youthful appearance. Placental extracts protect collagen from degradation, which makes it an anti-aging treatment that helps promote healthy skin tone and texture for both men and women.
Right now, most of the top-performing placenta products hail from Korea, where placenta has been popular for many years. Here are some of the best placenta products on the market.
