D' Luxe Beauty - Top Beauty Ingredient Trends for 2009


Want to wow your friends with your knowledge of the hottest beauty trends? The Pierce Mattie Beauty PR firm has released their predictions of the Top 10 Beauty Ingredients for 2009.

Argan Oil: Known for being one of the richest natural sources of Vitamin E with 80% essential fatty acids, this oil has been a beauty secret of Moroccan women for centuries. It can be used on skin and hair to replenish hair and skin’s natural moisture.

Acaii: This Brazilian berry contains antioxidants, amino acids, essential omegas, fibers and protein that positions itself as a formidable fighter in anti-aging products. Acaii can be found across the board in skin care, cosmetics and hair care products.

Goji Berries: This nutrient-rich berry, well known as Wolfberries in the Himalayas, has often been called a “super food” due to its abilities to fight free radicals and boost the immune system. While there are no benefits of Goji in fragrance, that hasn’t stopped perfumers from including this sweet yet tart scent into their fragrances.

Baobab: Rich in riboflavin, niacin and vitamins C, A, D and E, baobab has incredible anti-aging properties although you won’t just find it in creams and moisturizers, but also in exfoliating scrubs and hair care.

Acerola: Ingredients high in Vitamin C, like acerola, are being used more often due to their ability to even out skin tone and brighten complexion. Skin care brands will be using acerola more to target those who have issues with skin redness and inflammation.

Blueberry: Full of amino acids, vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids, blueberries are another super food that will be used to fight aging in beauty products. Also known as a “super fruit,” blueberries have long been known for its ability to revitalize the skin; it was just a matter of time before beauty brands began to incorporate it more into their skin care products.

Probiotics: Probiotic skin care will be branded as another “clinical-like” line of products, which beauty consumers tend to lean towards as science-based.

Palmitoyl Tripeptide-3: This Cosmeceutical that is becoming found more often in anti-aging products to fight fine lines and wrinkles will be even more prevalent in 2009. Products that contain Palmitoyl Tripeptide-3 will be branded as a temporary alternative to cosmetic procedures.

Myrrh: With the increasing popularity of Ayurveda, this ancient ingredient is also resurging in perfumes and skin care products. The rich royal resin with the slight vanilla fragrance also stimulates circulation and has lifting effects.

Turmeric: A popular ingredient in India, Turmeric is widely known for its medicinal properties. Turmeric will be found in acne-related creams and lotions, as it is an antiseptic and can aid in preventing and removing blemishes.

If you are like me, products with these ingredients will mysteriously make their way to your bathroom shelf and soon become your new beauty staples.
