Source Naturals, Phyto-Estrogen Cream is a phytoestrogen cream with an advanced formula which maintains a healthy appearance of the skin and delays the onset of ageing symptoms. A rich texture of the cream with, among other things, extracts from soya, pomegrate, red clover, Dong Quai and aloe vera which aids in preserving a healthy skin and delaying its physiological ageing.
Phytoestrogens in the formula are encapsulated in liposomes, namely carriers of bioactive substances owing to which the formula can cross the skin barrier and reach its deepest layers.
Phytoestrogens – a discovery of the 21st century
As time passes, your skin goes through ageing processes. They are natural, inevitable and physiologically irreversible and result in, among other things, wrinkles, skin dryness, uneven skin tone and loss of elasticity. One of the discoveries of the 21st century is phytoestrogens – natural compounds of plant origin which are believed to have a significant impact on physiology and function of the skin.
Phytoestrogens are used to relieve menopausal symptoms, both internal and external ones, manifested by ageing of the skin.
Phytoestrogens, known as “hormones of happiness”, are plant substances which are structural analogues of human estrogens, namely female sex hormones. Since estrogen levels decreases in the body during menopause, phytoestrogens are used to restore hormonal balance.
A positive impact of phytoestrogen supplementation on the body persuaded scientists to carry out studies on the effectiveness of topical use of phytoestrogen formulas in cosmetology, dermatology and aesthetic medicine.
Phytoestrogens which are vital to cosmetology are, among other things, genistein and daidzein (found in soya beans), oestrone (pomegrenate seeds), cyren (red clover) and also formonetin, glicytein and coumestrol.
Mechanism of action of phytoestrogens on the skin
It has been discovered that estrogen receptors are localised in the keratinocytes and dermal cells. The similarity of the structure of phytoestrogens to estrogens in the body makes it possible to combine them with these receptors and mimic the action of endogenous estrogens.
Apart from the ability to affect estrogen receptors, they show also strong antioxidant properties. Owing to that they have a wide spectrum of action in topical use, especially on slowing down the skin’s ageing processes.
Use of phytoestrogens in cosmetic formulas
Phytoestrogens show a multi-target action and aid in normal functioning of different skin layers – some bioactive substances work in the stratum corneum and others reach the deepest layers of the epidermis.
It is not without reason that phytoestrogens are ingredients of anti-ageing cosmetics. It has been shown that these substances contribute to maintaining a healthy and youthful appearance of the skin. They help improve skin tone and maintain its proper firmness and elasticity. They neutralise also free radicals and increase hydration of the skin. In addition, phytoestrogens used topically inhibit the activity of metalloproteinases. Because of that, they prevent the skin atrophy caused by degeneration of collagen fibres and decreased availability of hyaluronic acid.
To sum up, Source Naturals, Phyto-Estrogen Cream strengthens the protection of collagen fibres, eliminates free radicals and has an anti-inflammatory effect. Owing to that, it improves skin elasticity and slows down the signs of ageing. Its regular use may delay adverse changes in the skin.
Cosmetic formulas with phytoestrogens may be a perfect skin care product, especially for women during menopause. These formulas help replenish endogenous estrogens and have thus a positive impact on slowing down ageing processes.
According to scientists, the use of only topical skin care products may not be enough. Because of that, it is worth following a proper diet rich in products with phytoestrogens or taking supplements.
