Well, we have seen that foods (think of honey, yogurt, sugar, etc.) become a large part of our beauty regimen. It shouldn’t come as a surprise if we told you that caviar is another such ingredient. Yes, caviar! And yes, we are talking about fish eggs. Once thought to be a delicacy fit for only the upper-class, caviar is now a luxury that is widely available as affordable skincare (bringing a little bit of fancy to our lives ;)).
What is caviar?
Caviar is made from the raw eggs of the prized fish: sturgeon. It is an exotic delicacy associated with the rich and famous. To preserve the sturgeon fish from extinction, caviar is produced by careful farming in select areas of the world, to fulfil environmental standards. It has all the goodness of marine sea minerals which provide a wide number of benefits when applied topically on the skin. In cosmetics, caviar is extracted from the fresh raw eggs before they are salted and preserved.
Caviar is rich in nutrients
Caviar is rich in nutrients and has properties that support skin strength. It is rich in amino acids and proteins. Its high protein content, including 17 amino acids, improve the skin’s outer layers and increase the skin strength. It has vast minerals including Sodium, Potassium, Selenium, Phosphorous, Magnesium, Calcium, and vitamins such as D and A.
What does caviar do to your skin?
Caviar’s number one benefit? Its anti-aging properties. It activates the skin to produce new collagen (the protein responsible for skin youth and vitality). Collagen then, in turn, helps to plump up and thicken the skin, creating younger and firmer skin, thus eliminating the signs of wrinkles and fine lines. Some studies conclude that caviar speeds up the production of collagen up to 67 percent.
Caviar is 50-70 percent water and because it is similar to human amino acids, it is easily absorbed by the skin, providing moisture to it. The carbohydrates found in caviar, particularly glucose, sucrose, fructose, and glycogen directly moisturize the skin.
Benefits of caviar on the skin:
- Minimizes fine lines and wrinkles (signs of aging)
- Retains moisture and hydration on the skin
- The volume, suppleness, elasticity, and tone of the skin are preserved
- Protects from the damaging UV rays and radiation
- O3 fatty acids present in caviar helps in skin rejuvenation
