Here at Wylde Grey we are expecting to see a big shift in the way we see personalized skin care in 2023, with a preference for products and treatments that do more, last longer and leave us feeling healthier. From strength-building ingredients to holistic wellness, these are the skincare ingredients that you should have on your radar:

01— Winter Cherry

Winter Cherry is an antioxidant rich plant whose leaves have been used in medicine for over 4,000 years. Winter Cherry has anti-aging properties, fighting blue light exposure and reducing fine lines, uneven skin tones and hyperpigmentation. The antioxidants in this herb boost circulation in the skin, allowing for a radiant glow.

02— Snail Mucin

Snail Mucin is a thick fluid with a slimy texture that is released from a snail when it is agitated and is a popular skincare ingredient. Snail Mucin is going viral on TikTok as this substance moisturizes skin, promotes collagen production and aids in skin healing as well as regeneration without clogging pores. This ingredient is the perfect addition to any acne skincare routine.

03—Rosemary Oil

Rosemary Essential Oil is derived from the aromatic herb Rosmarinus Officinalis, known for its fragrance and energizing properties. Rosemary Oil is used in skincare, haircare and wellness as it is known to increase hair growth and reduce inflammation.


L-glutamine is a precursor to glutathione, one of the main antioxidants found in the human body. It’s been available in supplement form for years, but recently has picked up traction as a topical skincare ingredient to repair damage and diminish dark spots (declining levels of glutathione is said to contribute towards outward ageing). While search trends for L-Glutamine are right up, Glutathione is easier to find in topical skincare. It’s an antioxidant (L-Glutamine is an amino acid), and in the right concentration has been found to inhibit melanin over-production. If you want to brighten pigmentation, it’s worth looking into.
