Quinoa is one of the most innovative and influential active ingredients in cosmetics thanks to its antioxidant, nourishing and skin-tightening properties.

In fact, the year 2013 was declared by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) as the “International Year of Quinoa”, seeking to promote the cultivation and consumption of this golden grain from the Peruvian Andes, positioning it as “the only plant food that contains all the amino acids, trace elements and vitamins essential for life, in addition to being gluten-free”.

Chenopodium Quinoa Extract presents a perfect balance of the 8 amino acids necessary for the development of human tissues, which together with its antioxidant properties stimulate the synthesis of collagen in the skin.


Professional dermatological studies have supported the benefits of quinoa for the skin and, moreover, these studies show that results are visible in a short time. The In-Vivo efficacy study carried out demonstrates the immediate smoothing effect on the skin after application, reducing wrinkle depth by 30% in 80% of volunteers up to the lowest concentration in 60 minutes.
There was also an immediate improvement in skin roughness in 60% of the volunteers within 30 minutes, and 60% efficiency in 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 the skin’s 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.

Therefore, we recommend the application of Sesshin Intensive Lifting Serum with Quinoa extract, formulated to lift and brighten fatigued skin.

Its genuine tensors exert a dual tightening and smoothing effect that fights gravity, improving skin firmness, elasticity and texture.

It is suitable for all skin types and is very easy to use! Gently pump a small amount of product onto the fingers every day and massage the face and neck until completely absorbed.
