  • What are Fullerenes in Skincare Products?

    03 Marzo 2014

    Reading the ingredients on a bottle of your favorite moisturizer can leave you feeling confused. What exactly do all these big words mean and are they good or bad for my skin? Many of these ingredients are classified as fullerenes.

    Fullerenes are powerful antioxidants made from carbon that are 125 times stronger than Vitamin C. They are microscopic  and hollow spheres that carry active ingredients in your products into the skin. You may commonly hear them referred to as a “sponge” for this reason. Because of their shape and small nature, fullerenes allow other common ingredients like retinol and peptides to penetrate deeper into the skin.

    Fullerene is just one of the many Nobel Prize-winning ingredients that furthers the technology of modern skincare. Scientists have found that this is an anti-oxidant material, which paved the way for the ingredient to be used in high-end skincare products.

    Fullerene also has been proven to be highly effective at getting rid of cell-damaging radicals. Because of their antioxidant properties, fullerene is often used for acne or more commonly in anti-aging products, like Shinso Essence. Look for fullerenes in lotions, serums, face masks and more.

    At the recent 2014 BAFTA Awards, Bale his wife Sandra “Sibi” Blažić (a former model, make-up artist, and personal assistant to actress Winona Ryder) looked like a true power couple on the red carpet. The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) “supports, promotes and develops the art of film, television and video games – by identifying and rewarding excellence, inspiring practitioners and benefiting the public”. It’s also another excuse for celebrities to dress to the nines and don their best makeup and glowing skin.

    For this event, Bale and his wife had their hair and makeup done by celebrity makeup artist Julia Carta. In addition to her arsenal of products, Carta used a variety of Shinso skincare items on the couple’s faces. To steal Bale and Sibi’s great skin, follow the skincare steps below.
    • Use serum Shinso Essence the morning of a large event and the night before after you wash your face.
    • Before applying any makeup or facial products, gently exfoliate the skin with Shinso Glow.  This product will remove dead skin and you can be used for all types of skin- even those with Rosacea or sensitive skin.
    • After applying makeup, you want to seal it in for a lasting and moisturizing effect. Apply Shinso Mist over the makeup to set the products and lift your face.
