Algae: The Green Powerhouse for Skincare

When it comes to skincare, one ingredient that has gained immense popularity is algae. Whether it's listed as kelp, seaweed, or spirulina, algae is nature's leafy green vegetable from the sea, brimming with proteins, amino acids, lipids, and other essential nutrients your skin craves.

Algae offers a myriad of benefits for your skin. It provides collagen care, supports the skin barrier function, soothes inflammation, and protects against dehydration and cell damage. Its impressive properties make it a key ingredient in six of Murad's hero products: Intense Recovery Cream, Rapid Collagen Infusion, Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum, Vita-C Eyes Dark Circle Corrector and Clarifying Toner


Hyaluronic Acid: The Fountain of Moisture

Naturally present in our bodies but decreasing as we age, hyaluronic acid, also known as sodium hyaluronate, plays a vital role in maintaining skin health. This incredible ingredient can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, making it a moisture-binding powerhouse for the skin.

Hyaluronic acid comes in different molecular weights, each with its own benefits. High molecular weight hyaluronic acid hydrates the surface of the skin, while low molecular weight hyaluronic acid penetrates the epidermis, reaching deeper layers for enhanced hydration and tissue repair. In addition to its moisturising properties, hyaluronic acid also aids in the delivery of active ingredients. Murad incorporates hyaluronic acid into several of its products, including Clarifying Water Gel, Clarifying Cream Cleanser, Revitalixir Recovery Serum, Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture, Nutrient Charged Water Gel, Vita-C Eyes Dark Circle Corrector, Renewing Cleansing Cream, Replenishing Multi Acid Peel, Renewing Eye Cream, Rapid Collagen Infusion, Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Masks, Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream, and Retinol Youth Renewal Serum.


Mushroom: Unleashing Skincare's Fungal Powerhouse

Move aside, serums and creams—mushrooms are taking the skincare world by storm! Known by various names like Ashwagandha, Rishi, and Tremella in ingredient lists, mushrooms are emerging as powerful allies in the battle against stressed skin. Mushrooms act as natural sources of potent antioxidants, effectively neutralising damage caused by oxidative stressors such as pollution, smoke, UV rays, blue light, and emotional or physical stress. Their remarkable benefits include intense moisturisation, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, fading dark spots and pigmentation, calming inflammation and irritation, and shielding the skin from further damage.

Two remarkable products from Murad harness the power of mushrooms: Deep Relief Blemish Treatment and Exasoothe Quick Relief Colloidal Treatment.


Niacinamide: The Vitamin B Wonder

Niacinamide, also called nicotinamide, is a form of vitamin B that naturally occurs in the body. Derived from food sources like meats, seafood, and green vegetables, or produced by breaking down niacin (a form of vitamin B3), niacinamide plays a crucial role in maintaining cellular health. This versatile ingredient offers a range of benefits for the skin, including prevention of oxidative stress, improved barrier function, reduction of inflammation, promotion of skin renewal, and protection against UV damage. Murad incorporates niacinamide into multiple products, such as Outsmart Blemish Clarifying Treatment, Clarifying Water Gel, Revitalixir Recovery Serum, Nutrient Charged Water Gel, Vita-C Eyes Dark Circle Corrector, Essential-C Firming Radiance Day Cream, Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream, Exasoothe Quick Relief Colloidal Treatment, and Exasoothe Daily Defense Colloidal Oatmeal Cream.


Tranexamic Acid: The Skin Tone Savior

Don't be misled by its name—tranexamic acid is not an AHA or BHA exfoliant. Derived from lysine, an essential amino acid, tranexamic acid offers an array of benefits for your skin. It inhibits melanin production, effectively minimising skin discoloration, hyperpigmentation, and the appearance of dark spots. Additionally, it soothes, brightens, revives dull skin, and promotes an even skin tone.

Murad's Rapid Dark Spot Correcting Serum and Replenishing Multi Acid Peel feature the transformative power of tranexamic acid.


Tulsi: The Sacred Herb for Skincare

Also known as holy basil or Ocimum sanctum, tulsi is an adaptogenic herb packed with antioxidants. By protecting the body from free radicals, it helps prevent tissue and cell damage. Tulsi's anti-inflammatory properties aid digestion, reduce internal and external inflammation, and lower cortisol levels.

Tulsi delivers soothing benefits that enable the skin to combat oxidative stress, including pollution, while providing a calming effect. Murad incorporates tulsi into four of its products: Replenishing Multi Acid Peel, Daily Clarifying Peel, Clarifying Water Gel, and Intense Recovery Cream.

With these powerful ingredients at your disposal, your skincare routine can be elevated to new heights. Embrace the wonders of algae, hyaluronic acid, mushrooms, niacinamide, tranexamic acid, and tulsi, and unlock the potential for radiant, healthy-looking skin with Murad Skincare.
