Corn, Soybean and Flaxseed Extract for Skin Protection
Posted: March 24, 2011
At In-Cosmetics in Milan, International Specialty Products (ISP) will introduce three vegetable-derived skin care ingredients that have been added to the Natriance line. Natriance Antioxidizer, Natriance Detoxifier and Natriance Protector are said to protect against oxidative, UV and other stresses while helping support cellular functions that may be critical to better skin.
By focusing on key cellular markers, the three ingredients reportedly help boost protection and maintenance to achieve healthy- and younger-looking skin.
Natriance Antioxidizer (INCI: Water (aqua) (and) Butylene Glycol (and) Hydrolyzed Soy Protein (proposed)) uses the antioxidant powers of soybeans (Glycine max) to help preserve and invigorate key enzymes in vitro that eliminate reactive oxygen species (ROS), also known as free radicals.
This soy protein compound reportedly may be effective in helping skin reduce its DNA damage and slowing photoaging. Soy protein hydrolysate, in general, has chelating and radical scavenging properties and may help decrease lipid peroxidation, as shown in a study. Some peptides found in soy also boast potential for high antioxidant properties. Ex vivo, the soybean compound helps maintain the expression of two classes of key enzymes that support free radical scavenging.
Natriance Detoxifier (INCI: Water (aqua) (and) Glycerin (and) Hydrolyzed Corn Protein (proposed)) is a corn-derived biofraction designed to minimize markers associated with biological aging, to help maintain the cleansing of useless cell proteins, to help boost collagen production and to help skin stimulate cellular rejuvenation.
