What is Inflammaging?

What is Inflammaging?

You may or may not have heard the term “inflammaging” circling around the skincare scene as of late. Inflammaging is a chronic, milder grade of inflammation that can cause serious harm to the body and skin. For the skin, it can speed up the aging process — even if you don’t visually notice the immediate effects of the inflammation. When experiencing inflammation, it can start to show on your skin in a variety of ways like redness, acne, eczema, rosacea, and general sensitivity.

How Inflammaging Affects the Aging Process

For normal skin, inflammation is just your body’s natural way of protecting itself against injury and infection. However, for skin that’s easily irritated and reactive, this consistent inflammation works to speed up aging by breaking down collagen, elastin, ceramides, and other parts of your skin's structure. And because we don't see the immediate effects, we may not feel the same urgency to deal with it. But nevertheless, those visible signs will eventually start showing as wrinkles, fatigued skin, sagging, redness, and dullness

So why can’t reactive skin manage this process of inflammaging? Unfortunately, your skin can only take on so much. During this ongoing process, your skin is already working overtime to fight and combat those stressors — leaving it no time to turn over dead skin cells and build new collagen and elastin to maintain healthy and youthful-looking skin. 


To create the ultimate anti-aging products for reactive skin, we knew we had to create formulas that dealt with the inflammaging triggered first. So to engineer our Bio-Barrier duo we took a strategic, approach to handle skin on two levels. First, our Superkind, Bio-Barrier Serum and Eye formulas gently address the chronic stress that triggers inflammation. Then the skin has been relieved from that stress, our formulas powerfully target and transform the visible signs of aging. So with our Bio-Barrier Serum and Eye Crème, inflammaging will never again get in the way again of experiencing real anti-aging results.
