Caviar cosmetics: This luxury gets under your skin
There are things that are simply a matter of taste. For example caviar. For some it's the absolute epitome of luxury, for others it's disgustingly salty tasting fish eggs and completely overrated. Personally, I find caviar quite tasty, but I never would have thought of putting it on my skin. Until now…
You've probably already noticed that products containing the "miracle ingredient" caviar have been piling up on the cosmetics shelves lately. Most of them are anything but cheap, but they look classy and shout “Buy me, I’m good for your skin!” in a quiet, seductive voice. We are in the luxury segment of the cosmetics industry here. But as beautiful as the jars would look in my bathroom, the pretty packaging alone is of very little use to my skin. So I ask myself the questions “What can caviar do?” and “Is it worth buying?”
What makes caviar so valuable for the cosmetics industry is the numerous amino acids and trace elements it contains. Amino acids are the body's own substances and play a key role in collagen production and cell regeneration. Trace elements are essential for strengthening connective tissue and regulating water balance, thus ensuring firm and elastic skin.
Another effect of caviar is that it promotes the growth of probiotic bacteria and strengthens skin immune protection. It can also help reduce skin imperfections. Due to these valuable ingredients, caviar cosmetics are primarily intended as anti-aging for demanding and mature skin.
Incidentally, caviar creams do not contain pure caviar, but rather an extract that is obtained from fish eggs. So you don't have to worry about giving off a fishy smell after applying the cream.
All in all, it sounds pretty great. Everyone has to decide for themselves whether this is worth up to several hundred euros. If you just want to try your luck with a caviar cosmetic product, you will also find it in the lower price segment. Even a large German discounter now has its own line of caviar for a good price, which also looks very nice in the bathroom. So just try it out.
