The cosmetics industry is overflowing with people who have no clue what they are doing,and the issue of oxygen in skin-care products demonstrates that perfectly. After selling us products to ward off oxygen’s effects on the skin (the word antioxidant means anti-oxygen),
the beauty industry then turns around and sells us products that claim to provide oxygen to the skin. Doesn’t the beauty industry have anything better to do? (No, it doesn’t, especially if there is an interested consumer willing to make a purchase.)


Many cosmetic products contain antioxidants, ingredients that keep oxygen off the face, such as vitamin C, superoxide dismutase, selenium, curcumin, plant extracts, and vitamin E, among dozens and dozens of others. At the same time, the cosmetics industry
also sells products that contain hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) or some other oxygen-releasing ingredient that supposedly delivers an oxygen molecule when it comes into contact with skin. It makes sense to wonder if the extra oxygen would just trigger free-radical damage
and cause more problems for the skin. But if you were also using products that contained antioxidants, wouldn’t they “scavenge” up that free-radical oxygen? The answer is that if the product could deliver extra oxygen to the skin it would indeed generate free-radical
damage and, based on data from almost every imaginable published study on the subject, that’s bad for skin.
