A nutritional view

As nutrition and diet play a big role in skin health, there is a growing demand for ‘Beauty From Within’ solutions. Turmeric is one of the most revered plants in Ayurveda. Curcumin is turmeric’s main bioactive polyphenol with numerous antiaging health benefits. It is commonly acceptable that the ageing process is driven by the lifelong accumulation of molecular damages mainly due to reactive oxygen species (ROS). In addition, high levels of ROS lead to the activation of hyaluronidase, collagenase and elastase, which can further contribute to skin damage. On the other hand, protein glycation contributes to skin aging as it deteriorates the existing collagen by crosslinking.

Antioxidant properties of Curcumin have shown to reduce ROS in cells and eliminate the effects of advanced glycation species (AGEs) on the divergent regulation of gene expression of receptors of AGEs by several mechanisms. Furthermore, curcumin has been shown to delay the skin aging by protecting its structures and proteins such as collagen and elastin from oxidative and inflammatory damages, however the potential of curcumin is limited by its low bioavailability. CURCUSHINE™ microcapsules has been proven to reduce significantly ROS levels, thus demonstrating it has a potent antioxidant effect on human dermal fibroblasts, therefore preventing skin aging from within.

Applications
