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.

It improves concentration, cognition and memory. Forms a colloidal suspension of a liquid in the fat (emulsification) allowing for their use in the food industry.

Aloe vera (Aloe barbadensis Mill.) is a tropical and subtropical plant originating from Mediterranean countries, which finds application mainly in dermatology and cosmetology (topical effect) and oral application positively influences the functioning of the digestive system.
The flesh of aloe leaves is mainly composed of water (96%), however, the remaining 4% is constituted by a concentrated dose of nutrients and substances with high biological activity. Aloe contains i.a. fiber, fatty acids, amino acids (including 7 exogenous amino acids), polysaccharides, glycoproteins, plant enzymes (including SOD - superoxide dismutase) as well as vitamins and mineral ingredients.
The internal activity of aloe is mainly directed at regulating the work of the digestive system. Aloe has antibacterial and antifungal effect, supports the treatment of stomach ulcers, alleviates inflammations, facilitates the organism’s detoxification and positively influences microflora of the digestive system, stimulating the growth of probiotic bacteria.
External activity of aloe - on skin - contributes to strengthening the barrier of epidermis and also facilitates repair processes in skin, counteracts infections, stimulates the production of new collagen fibers. Additionally, it has softening and shielding effect.
Vitamin E (tocopherol) is a fat soluble. Due to its antioxidant action, it is a protection of other vitamins (e.g. Vitamins A). Protects the body against free radicals, strengthens the walls of blood vessels and its capacity, causing their dilation and dissolution of blood clots. With the reduction of coagulation, it is used as an antiatherogenic medicine, it allows for the proper course of pregnancy. In cooperation with selenium it slows the ageing process of cells, strengthening connective tissue. In the food it is present in whole-grain bread, sprout and grains, vegetable oils (soybean, sunflower), soya beans and sunflower seeds, vegetable fat and hen egg yolks. Also it is used in sports medicine in the form of nutrients and supplements.
Vitamin E deficiency reduces building of red blood cells, results in changes in muscle and disorders of pregnancies.
Dosage: for children, 0.5 mg / 1 kg of weight; for adults 10-30 mg per day.
Pomegranate fruit extract – contains two substances valued for their health-promoting properties. First of them, punicalagins, are compounds from the group of ellagitannins whose molecules are quite big. They show strong antioxidant properties, both autonomous and thanks to its metabolites. They promote reduction in oxidative stress which is a factor stimulating cells apoptosis. Punicalagins can also reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
The second active component of the extract is punicic acid, also known as omega-5. It shows the ability of lipid profile optimisation. At the same time, it can increase the level of “good” HDL cholesterol and reduce the amounts of triglycerides in blood.
The pomegranate extract cannot be used together with preparations enhancing libido, as such a combination increases the risk of prapism effect (long and painful erection).
