As you consider your skin type and the needs you are trying to tackle, take a look at how the ingredients below may be implemented into your personal skincare routine. You might start seeing more of them in many skincare products in 2023.


Expect to see a rise in products using algae in 2023 because of its amazing, natural benefits. If you love implementing natural ingredients into your skincare routine, this is for you. According to SpecialChem, algae comes as an extract of other species of algae such as furaceae, fucus vesiculosus, and seaweed. Interest in this ingredient is growing because it acts as a humectant that helps attract water in skin absorption. 

Additionally, when used in skincare products, algae also acts as an emollient to condition and moisturize the skin. Furthermore, it can be used for anti-aging, skin brightening, and soothing effects as its naturally packed with a variety of nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants, per L'Oréal Paris. Many times, the ingredient will be listed as spirulina, seaweed, or kelp on the product.

Tremella mushroom

Another product coming from the natural realm is the tremella mushroom. This ingredient is an edible fungus that is also known as snow fungus, tremella fuciformis, silver ear, and snow mushrooms. This ingredient is great for retaining both water and moisture in your skin because they can store up to 500 times their weight in water, per Three Ships Beauty. Tremella mushrooms contain strong levels of vitamin C, amino acids, and a variety of other nutrients to help boost collagen in your skin. Its polysaccharides, or carbohydrate chains, also help boost skin elasticity, which then reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Aside from their anti-aging properties, tremella mushrooms bring antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties for more skin health-boosting benefits.


Ceramides are usually found in your skin cells, making up to 50% of your epidermis, but you can also add more to your skin from your products. According to CeraVe, implementing ceramides into your skincare routine will help boost a healthy skin barrier to seal moisture while also protecting your skin from pollutants. Low levels of ceramide can cause skin dehydration, which can lead to dry or irritated skin. There are a total of 12 different ceramides that can be either natural or synthetic, per WebMD. When using ceramides, you're boosting your skin's hydration and moisture levels while protecting it from environmental damage.

Mamey sapote

Mamey sapote is a fruit that has been making its way into the skincare industry. Many brands and products implement mamey sapote because it is jam-packed with minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants to help improve skin texture and radiance. In particular, this fruit contains high levels of vitamin C to help promote anti-aging and improve skin elasticity. This vitamin additionally provides protection against harmful U.V. rays. This nutritious fruit also contains vitamin E which can help treat dermatitis and psoriasis and reduce acne. With its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, this ingredient is quickly rising in popularity in many skincare products (via Healthline).


Colostrum is a unique ingredient that you can expect to see more of in the coming year. According to Epicuren Discovery, colostrum comes from the earliest produced breast milk from mammals, including humans. Don't worry, though, as colostrum in skincare is usually sourced from cows, known as bovine colostrum. This ingredient contains a variety of properties including white blood cells, growth factors, and antibodies making it a nutrient-packed ingredient for incredible skincare benefits. In particular, skincare containing colostrum helps boost your skin's elasticity as an anti-aging ingredient. It's perfect for anyone with sensitive or irritated skin, as it also helps treat sunburns or other skin conditions like atopic dermatitis.

Linoleic acid

For more hydration and anti-aging properties in your skincare products, keep an eye out for linoleic acid which is also known as vitamin F. Paula's Choice states that linoleic acid is an omega-6 fatty acid that serves as a thickening emollient in skincare use. This fatty acid can be found on the epidermis. Linoleic acid in the body helps produce gamma-linolenic acid which helps better control inflammation. This antioxidant ingredient is becoming more popular as it helps provide restorative and soothing effects on the skin. Additionally, linoleic acid has been shown to help fight against discoloration or fading of the skin.


Several peptides have landed on the charts as one of the most popular ingredients people are looking for in their skincare for their anti-aging, skin-plumping properties. Hailey Bieber's highly popular Rhode Skin Peptide Lip Treatment can attest to that. "Peptides are strings of amino acids, which are the building blocks that make up proteins in our body, including collagen in the skin," dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe tells Dermstore. Peptides are essential for the skin, as they play an important role in your skin's texture, firmness, and general appearance. Without a strong peptide presence, you may experience dry hair, brittle nails, and wrinkles, according to Dr. Bowe.

Kojic acid

If you struggle with hyperpigmentation or discoloration on your skin, consider using products with kojic acid listed as an ingredient. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Michele Farber tells Today that kojic acid inhibits the enzyme known as tyrosinase, which is responsible for producing melanin in the skin. Decreasing melanin performance can help reduce dark spots caused by hyperpigmentation or discoloration. Kojic acid then helps produce skin-brightening effects as well. Additionally, it also contains antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-viral properties.
