Sakura (Cherry Blossom) Extract
What causes wrinkles? All evidence points to glycation — the process by which a protein molecule unhealthily crosslinks with a sugar molecule. Glycation creates advanced glycation end products, or AGEs for short. AGEs speed up oxidative damage, especially to connective tissues such as collagen and elastin, and this damage leads to skin wrinkling.
Named after a beautiful Japanese goddess, sakura extract is a unique ingredient manufactured from cherry blossoms through a proprietary process. This proprietary nutricosmetic has been shown to inhibit the production of AGEs, and thus holds great promise for oral beauty care products.
