One of the most innovative and influential active ingredients in cosmetics thanks to its antioxidant, nourishing and skin-tightening properties, is quinoa.
In fact, the year 2013 was declared by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) as the “International Year of Quinoa”, trying to encourage the cultivation and consumption of this gold grain from the Andes of Peru , positioning it as “the only plant food that has all the essential amino acids, trace elements and vitamins for life, as well as not containing gluten”.
Chenopodium Quinoa Seed Extract presents a perfect balance of the 8 amino acids necessary for the development of human tissues, which together with their antioxidant properties stimulate the synthesis of collagen in the skin.
QUINOA PROFESSIONAL DERMATOLOGICAL STUDIES
Professional dermatological studies have supported the benefits of quinoa for the skin and, in addition, these studies show that the results are visible in a short time. The In-Vivo efficacy study carried out demonstrates the effect of immediate smoothing on the skin after application, reducing wrinkle depth by 30% in 80% of volunteers to the lowest concentration in 60 minutes.
There was also an immediate improvement in skin roughness in 60% of volunteers in 30 minutes, and in 60% efficiency, by reducing crow’s feet in the application area in just 1 hour.
“The success of this ingredient is due to the formation of a cohesive and continuous biological film that retains skin moisture, allowing it to remain hydrated and not show a worn or aged appearance”.
Last but not least, quinoa helps protect the skin from environmental stress and pollution to which it is exposed.
That is why, we recommend the application of Sesshin Intensive Lifting Serum with Quinoa extract, formulated to lift and brighten fatigued skin.
Its genuine tensors exert a double tensing and smoothing effect that fight against gravity, improving skin firmness, elasticity and texture.
It is suitable for all skin types and it is very easy to use! Gently pump a small amount of the product onto fingers every day and massage into face and neck until thoroughly absorbed.
