There are some ingredients we all know that help to turn back the hands of time and minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Retinol, a derivative of Vitamin A, and Hyaluronic Acid, a humectant, are known and loved as staple anti-ageing ingredients but every now and then, a new ingredient emerges which promises to be equally as wonderful for minimising the signs of ageing.
The newest ingredient to grab our attention is Maple Leaf Extract, a natural skincare ingredient which promises to treat wrinkles and enhance the elasticity of your skin. Derived from maple trees, Maple Leaf Extract can be applied topically to the skin to smooth fine lines, reduce inflammation and even treat pigmentation.
As it is relatively new to skincare world, it can be difficult to find products which include Maple Leaf Extract but it won't be long until this natural anti-ageing ingredient is featured in many must-have skincare formulas.
