One  question that we hear a lot of people ask is “why should I spend so much money on high-end products when I can get something cheaper at the supermarket?“and the answer to that question is multi-layered.

Aside from the fact that luxury beauty products contain more potent and effective ingredients, the beauty companies themselves spend a lot of their profits on research and development into new ways to benefit your skin.

You may have noticed that many products offer “patented ingredients” and these are usually things that the company has put a lot of time and effort into creating. With this in mind, we have curated a list of five of our favourite products which contain patented ingredients, many of which were specifically developed for the product in question.

Medik8 Copper PCA Peptides

The patented ingredient in this serum is in the title itself – copper PCA is a mineral which Medik8 patented for its unprecedented antioxidant powers. The serum neutralises a broad spectrum of skin-damaging free radicals to leave the complexion looking smooth, youthful and undeniably radiant. Additionally, the high-performance mineral works to renew and rebuild the skin by saturating cells with the vital energy needed to support collagen and elastin production.

Dermalogica Antioxidant HydraMist

This mist from Dermalogica is another antioxidant-rich product, in spray form, designed to deeply hydrate your face. It contains a polypeptide, patented by Dermalogica, which helps to prevent the signs of ageing caused by Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs – a damaging byproduct of sugar/protein reactions in the skin). It also contains a high dose of vitamin C and collagen stimulating peptides which encourages firmness and elasticity to help reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin Accumax

Advanced Nutrition Programme is a company well-known for its innovation in the world of supplements and these skin-repairing capsules contain a patented formula, designed to to feed every cell in the body to help support all areas including face, chest, back and shoulders without drying out the skin. Skin Accumax has won awards the world over for its ability to change people’s complexion and synergises together vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E and phytonutrients to work from the inside out to support healthy skin.

Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Serum

Elemis is another company which is world-renowned for its highly potent, award winning products and this serum is no exception. It contains patented Tri-Enzyme technology, which smoothes the skins’s surface, revealing a stunning complexion. The enzymes are used to trigger the body’s own processes, such as the breakdown and shedding of dead cells, which is what leaves you with a clear, smooth complexion. In fact, it’s so potent that you need to use a daily SPF to protect your skin while using the serum!

CeraVe AM Facial Moisturising Lotion SPF50

This facial moisturiser from CeraVE delivers long-lasting hydration alongside UV protection, to simplify and enhance your skincare routine. The product contains “MVE” and, according to CeraVe’s own blurb, “Multivesicular Emulsion technology is a revolutionary delivery system that makes formulas much more effective; helping to protect your skin barrier by providing long lasting hydration, with just one use.” The formula is also packed with niacinamide and vitamin E, which help to rebalance the skin and provide all-day hydration.
