A popular anti skin aging ingredient is Vitamin C. In anti skin aging treatment Vitamin C is the most effective ingredient. The skin receives many good benefits from Vitamin C. Not only does this vitamin help get rid of the free radicals that can damage your skin but it also helps your body increase the production of collagen.
The biggest challenge for the skin care industry is the stability of Vitamin C. When exposed to the air, Vitamin C oxidizes immediately. When Vitamin C is oxidized it not only becomes ineffective but it is also harmful to individuals since it will increase the production of free radicals.
Manufacturers have invested lots of money on researching a way to find alternative forms of solving the major oxidation problem. Increasing the concentration of Vitamin C so it doesn't loose its effectiveness is one solution they have found. Often time manufacturers will increase the concentration to ten percent. As the concentration of Vitamin C increases so does the price. So for this reason many consumers look for alternatives to skin products that contain Vitamin C.
Vitamin C derivatives have also been found by researchers that can be used as ingredients. Derivatives of Vitamin C that can easily penetrate the skin cells and release a proper amount of acid to help the production of collagen are ideal. The most common fat soluble Vitamin C derivative in skin care products is ascorbyl palmitate. This ingredient is more stable and less irritating than Vitamin C. Another derivative is the water soluble magnesium ascorbyl phosphate. This ingredient is also good for products that are made specifically for sensitive skin. Both these derivatives don't oxidize as easily as Vitamin C and don't cause as much irritation. Although they aren't as effective as pure Vitamin C.
It is best to check a product first before buying a skin care product based with Vitamin C. You can determine which products are effective to use since Vitamin C oxidizes easily. You can determine the effectiveness by the color of the product. A product is useless and harmful if it is yellowish-brown since this means it has been exposed to the air. With Vitamin C products you should read the label carefully to ensure you aren't wasting your money on a product that won't work.
Depending on the individual the effectiveness of a product will vary. While Vitamin C products will work well for some they can be useless for others. Some skin care product ingredients don't respond effectively for all skin types. To maintain and improve the efficiency of products you should make sure you store products properly.
Persian rug collectors often justify their obsession with handcrafted Oriental and Persian rugs by explaining their desire to own a small piece of the rich history and beauty behind the art form of Persian rug design.
Oriental and Persian rug weaving is a tradition that spans the centuries over a number of cultures. There are several references to the art of rug weaving found in ancient scriptures and classical writing. Unfortunately, there is no evidence that proves these references where to pile carpets and not simply to flat weaves (Kilims).
On the evidence of fragments found in ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian tombs, we know that various forms of flat weaving were well developed more than 4000 years ago. Other evidence suggests that weaving of pile rugs existed in the Middle East and other parts of central, northwest, and eastern Asia long before 2000 BC.
It is definitely certain however, that Asia was the first continent to produce rugs and that it was definitely the nomadic wanderers who created them.
The rearing of sheep, the prime source of carpet wool, is a traditional nomad occupation. Add to this the necessity of thick coverings for people having to endure extreme cold and it's likely the craft of weaving developed to replace the use of rough animal skins for warmth.
Before the discovery of the Pazyryk Rug, the oldest pile rug fragments of ancient rugs ever discovered were found in East Turkmenistan in an area known as the Tarim Basin. This area includes parts of northwest India, East Turkmenistan, southern Russia, Uzbekistan, Kirgizstan, western China, and Mongolia itself.
The art of pile rug weaving appeared in Europe some time after 1000 AD, and likely in Spain because of its proximity to Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Iran.
Other European countries soon imitated the craft and by the 20th century weaving rugs was prevalent in almost all of Europe. However, even with Europe producing their own rugs, we can still see through classic paintings that almost all the rugs depicted appear to be of the Persian or Anatolian types.
Rug weaving in Europe never became as important as it did in Asia and as a result, many Asian nations built enormous rug exporting industries over time.
