Diamond is a solid crystalline form of the element carbon. It is classified as one of the hardest materials used worldwide in different industrial applications like polishing tools and cutting glass. Even though diamonds are mainly associated with the jewelry industry, their chemical, biological, and optical properties appear extremely beneficial in the skincare industry.
Diamond dust’s ability to create an optical diffusion and blurring effect helps to even out the skin tone and improve its complexion. Its highly absorbing property helps reduce dark spots, blemishes, and suntans and gives the skin a radiant and sparking look.
The diamond extract is also highly effective in opening facial pores. Scrubs that contain diamond particles gently scrub off the presence of any blemishes from the skin’s surface as well as help to greatly reduce blemishes, including but not limited to pimples, acne, and scars.
With age, the skin begins to lose its elasticity. Harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun lead to accelerated aging: the formation of early wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles, and spots. Skincare products that contain diamond extract facilitate the formation of collagen and help to prevent saggy skin by giving skin a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Diamonds have the ability to attract water molecules and bind with them. Hence, they can keep moisture for a long period of time. Its nanoparticles tend to have a higher level of specific gravity that enables the active ingredient of diamond to penetrate deep inside the pores while at the same time locking the natural moisture. Overall, the skin feels soft and hydrated.
The active ingredient of diamond extract does not have major side effects and is safe to use on daily basis.
