After decades of research and innovation in the field of natural antioxidants, at AOM we are aware of the new direction that the world of personal care and cosmetics has taken in search of Natural alternatives to replace conventional ingredients of synthetic origin.

Solutions for Oxygen and Radicals
Two risk factors for cosmetics products and the skin
What does oxidation do?
Oxidation is one of the main causes for deterioration of cosmetic products.
Oxidative degradation of fatty acids not only has a negative impact on the esthetic perception of a formulation, but also active substances defining the function of the cosmetic product can be destroyed.
Also, inside the human skin oxygen and radical species can attack biomolecules and impair their biological function.
Radical oxidation reactions can induce micro-inflammations and subsequently lead to premature aging of the skin as a visible result.
Natural protection against oxidative deterioration
The widest range of tocopherols
Obtained from different sources like, Sunflower, European Rapeseed, or non-GMO Soy, the natural composition of each of them, produces a mixture of tocopherols with different antioxidant properties.
AOM offers a complete range of natural tocopherols guaranteeing the absence of genetic manipulation. By choosing a tocopherol from the right source, these different properties can be explored selectively, and desired cosmetic functions can be realized in the most natural way.

How plant-sterols benefit skin
An in vitro study found that skin cells exposed to stigmasterol and beta-sitosterol showed lower levels of enzymes that degrade collagen, which resulted in increased collagen secretion. This helps the skin to retain its youthful appearance and also delays the development of wrinkles.
Beta-sitosterol is used in sun care formulas (during and after) to support skin inflamed by sun exposure. It also has been shown to provide relief of atopic dermatitis, and even helps accelerate healthy wound repair, scar reduction, and in improving barrier function (the skin’s ability to retain moisture.)
