If there is anything that lets us know that we’re currently living in the future, it’s the modern day beauty industry. From an increase in inclusivity to technological innovations, the beauty industry is transforming on a daily.  Over these past few years, we’ve seen a rise in neurocosmetics in skincare. It’s more than just skin deep; neurocosmetics provide an array of benefits to the mind, body, and soul. We definitely love that here, and when we say our products are for body care and self care – we mean just that. This Mental Health Action Day (May 18), we’re proud to shed light on the overflow of benefits of neurocosmetics. With 9 out of 10 adults believing there to be a mental health crisis in the US, we’re always imagining how we can attack this (even in the beauty world). As the industry continues to shift and promote wellness and softer lifestyles, we’re more than happy to be a part of it. One of our favorite things to do is to provide our community with skincare and beauty lessons that can help improve your self care routine. We’re the pros, so you don’t have to be. After all, a healthier you is a happy you. Without further ado, let’s get into it! 

What Are Neurocosmetics? 

With issues like climate change and an increase of waste beginning to take over our planet, companies everywhere are working vigorously to implement clean, sustainable, and non-toxic products on the market. Omya Kinetic explains neurocosmetics to be “...non-toxic, bio-active topical products which contain special ingredients designed to work on a neurological level.” Simply put, these are creams and oils you apply to the skin that contain active ingredients that will help influence one’s mood. The brain and skin connection has been studied by chemists and scientists in beauty for quite some time now, and creators are constantly on the hunt to up the experience when using body and skin care products. Being directly connected to the central nervous system, your skin cells have receptors. While formulating neurocosmetic products, biochemists are often keeping in mind how these receptors bind neurotransmitters to regulate their functions when choosing ingredients that are able to interact with both the skin and nervous system. We’re primarily seeing neurocosmetics being used in anti-aging products, giving consumers healthier and more vibrant skin with each use.

Now, there’s a difference between products that may simply make you feel good and products classified as neurocosmetics. One of the main differences between the two is the ingredients; herbalism is partly the inspiration behind the products that help influence consumers’ moods. We love products that help us work on our self-love journey, but it is technically not considered a neurocosmetic without stimulating brain activity and skin cells’ performance. For example, active ingredients like plant extracts in neurocosmetics become an amalgamation of nature and science when the product influences the nervous system while still having anti-aging properties that eventually leads to less wrinkles and a more radiant glow. Reduced stress AND healthier skin? That’s all we needed to hear.

What we love about the beauty industry is how it is continuously transforming. Every day, we are exposed to new technology and ideas that change how we view skin and body care. We’re grateful to live in pretty advanced times now where neurocosmetics continue to develop to fit the lifestyles we’ve grown to adapt to. Beauty trends can be cyclical, and it’s amazing to see how creators in this day and age put their modern spin on hacks that may have been around for generations. This Mental Health Awareness Month, we urge everyone to do what makes them happy, set boundaries, and to never skip a self-care day. Our commitment to our community is to continue to keep working to deliver innovative products that help you feel like your best self.  Ornami is always ready to take things a step further, and we can’t wait for you all to bask in it while we do so!
