So why exactly do we use soy extract in our creams ?
Soy isoflavones are the most potent of the antioxidant phytoestrogens; they support elasticity and firmness, helping keep you skin soft and flexible as is needed when rebuilding the damaged collagen.
Soy extract’s increased use in anti-aging products is largely due to studies showing that genistein (a component of soy) has a collagen-stimulating effect and that various compounds in soy influence skin thickness and elasticity. Soy was shown to stimulate production of hyaluronic acid in skin.
Here are some advantages of using soy extract:
- Anti-Inflamatory properties
- Antioxidant properties
- Stimulate the production of collagen
- Stimulate the production of hyaluronic acid
- lightening of hyperpigmentation
