Allow Howard Sobel, MD, board certified cosmetic dermatologist and founder of Sobel Skin, to explain first: “These types of ingredients get their name because they’re ‘actively’ working to help improve the general appearance of your skin, whether by stimulating collagen and elastin production, increasing cell turnover, or protecting it actively from skin damage,” he shares.”An ‘active’ ingredient is a targeted ingredient that has been shown in studies to provide results at the level included in the product,” adds Elyse Love, MD, of Gramercy Laser and Medical Dermatology. “So, if a product contains an ingredient at a low level that has not been shown to be scientifically significant, it should be listed as an inactive ingredient, not an active ingredient.” That said, since there isn’t a lot of regulation on this within the skincare realm, choosing quality formulas from reputable retailers (and, sorry, not just something you find for cheap on Amazon) is of utmost importance if you want something that’s truly effective.Plus, there’s also the fact that a very small number of over the counter skincare products directly state the percentage of active ingredients they contain, and since some (like retinol or your AHAs/BHAs) can be irritating at high potency, it’s always good to tread carefully, starting with smaller amounts and eventually increasing your daily quota if you find your skin reacts well and you’re getting the results you want. For example, licensed esthetician and Stacked Skincare founder Kerry Benjamin explains superstar active ingredients like hyaluronic acid (HA) need superb supporting casts in order to earn a standing ovation.
