This oil has long been not just a product of processing amaranth grain, but an important component of effective cosmetics for any age, safe and effective skin care products. Today you can buy a cream or serum of a world brand, and among the components see amaranth oil. The results of the use of such a tool will not leave doubts about the correctness of the choice. However, the use of cosmetic products from less famous manufacturers gives eloquent results, and the key to success is in the composition of the cream, serum or other means. Therefore, it makes sense to consider in detail, due to which substances the skin is transformed for the better, as well as refer to examples of proven cosmetics.
Why did the role of oil become dominant?
The role of oils in the achievement of beauty and health is appreciated in ancient times. For example, Cleopatra washed herself with oils, took a bath with them, and the queen of Egypt always managed to fascinate people. However, if we ignore the image of Cleopatra and turn to the modern experience in the use of care products based on amaranth oil, their effectiveness is quite understandable. The fact is that oil is extracted from seeds by cold pressing, and this allows you to save the greatest concentration of beneficial substances. Thus, the oil contains fatty acids, which are excellent conductors of biologically active substances, so components from a cream, serum or other means are better absorbed by the skin. In addition, the skin receives vitamins, trace elements, amino acids, which in amaranth oil contains a large amount.
A huge role for the health of our skin are vitamins:
• Group B (riboflavin, biotin, folic acid);
• E (tocopherol);
• P (rutin);
• PP (niacin);
These vitamins penetrate the layers of the skin, contribute to its stability before exposure to harmful substances, prevents damage to cells, blood vessels. Among all the vitamins present in amaranth oil, vitamin E can be distinguished, and it is contained in a form in which it is not found in any other vegetable oil. It is a powerful antioxidant that effectively protects the body from free radicals.
However, the main substance that gives cosmetics on the basis of amaranth oil indisputable advantages is squalene. It depends on the level of moisture and elasticity of the skin, tissue oxygen saturation. Interestingly, in olive oil, which is also included in the composition of many cosmetics, squalene is represented by an extremely small volume – only 0.7%. In the seeds of amaranth it is up to 15%.
Amaranth oil is also high in omega-6. According to the results of research, this polyunsaturated fatty acid in amaranth oil is exactly half, and if you consider that it is responsible for restoring the skin, you can imagine the extent of the possibilities of oil-based products with a high content of omega-6. Such funds contribute to the active restoration of the skin, even in the most difficult situations, including after burns, cuts, to eliminate scars, acne, stretch marks.
Due to the action of all components of amaranth oil, we can observe the result of its work in the deep layers of the skin and on the surface. Cosmetics based on amaranth oil after applying to the skin create a thin film on it, preventing moisture loss, and also smooth out superficial wrinkles. The positive effect of cream, serum or other means on the basis of amaranth oil recognizes more and more women in the beautiful half of humanity. The results of the use of such agents convince of the large role of amaranth oil: as stated in the reviews, it is more effective than olive oil, more comfortable than coconut oil, more popular than shea butter and argan oil combined.
