MSM: Oskia's Vegan Ingredient With Proven Anti-Ageing Benefits
It's hard to keep up with the ingredients lists of all our favourite cult skincare brands, these days. If Oskia's has slipped through your radar, we need to introduce you to MSM. Clinically proven to smooth out wrinkles and give your skin a boost in overall vitality, it's an ingredient you certainly need to be acquainted with...
Oskia's Journey With MSM
MSM became Oskia's hero ingredient after the brand's founder, Georgie Cleeve, started taking it orally to help treat a knee injury she had as a teen. At the time, it was her father who had persuaded her to try it as he had successfully treated horses' joints with it. The results were remarkable; she didn't need her walking sticks any longer, her pain had gone and she could walk, run and ski again without any issues. In addition to this, she discovered another unexpected benefit from taking MSM topically - her acne-prone skin had cleared up. She also suffered with eczema and rosacea and these had improved, too.
Georgie then spent years researching the effects MSM on a molecular had on skin. She formulated her iconic MSM complex and launched Oskia. Charged into all her products, this powerhouse of an ingredient boasts impressive benefits for all different skin types, including mature skin. Oskia as a brand are determined to carry on improving skin using bio nutrition - they even have their own laboratory so they can research and tinker away at new formulations.
What is MSM?
MSM is a naturally-occurring organic sulphur compound that supports the efficiency of healthy skin cells, helping to improve skin structure, elasticity and condition. It is usually formulated as a supplement and taken orally, however Oskia found that it was also incredibly efficacious as a molecule charged into skincare - in fact, they were the first company to introduce it into the cosmetics industry. Their MSM supplement is where it all began, though, and is still a best seller to this day. It is also naturally found in plants, animals and humans therefore it is 100% vegan.
What are the key MSM skin benefits?
This Sulphur-based compound boasts a multitude of benefits for the skin and is most definitely not a newbie when it comes to treating skin issues. In fact, Sulphur itself has a long historical record in dermatological remedies for acne, psoriasis, rosacea and wound healing. MSM's key skin benefits include:
- Supports your skin's production of collagen
- Reduces inflammation and redness
- Improves cellular function by making the cell walls work more efficiently which in turn supports detoxification
- Clinically proven to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation
- Helps calm skin conditions such as acne and eczema
- Smooths and improves your skin's texture
