The word chiral (ky-rahl, rhymes with spiral) instantly brings to mind the miserable summer I spent studying organic chemistry. If I'd realized back then how it was relevant to skincare, I probably would have paid more attention! Anyway, the gist of chirality is this: molecules exist in two forms, a D-isomer and an L-isomer. It's a similar concept to having left and right hands. Our bodies are naturally more receptive to L-isomer forms of molecules. When we encounter incompatible D-isomers, our bodies interpret it as waste or a toxin.
Some of these skincare companies include CosMedix, Sircuit Skin, PCA Skin, and Arcona. I've been hearing a lot about Arcona lately, I'm really intrigued by this company in particular. They use all-natural ingredients and their products sound absolutely lovely. They suggest five basic products based on your skin type and have a hydrating gel called Magic White Ice! I'm also interested in the Wine Hydrating Mask.
