5% Astaxanthin powder 50gProduct Points:10Points
Astaxanthin has been shown in clinical studies to increase skin moisture, moisture retention, elasticity, as well as promote skin smoothness, decreasing fine lines and wrinkles.
Astaxanthin is both water and fat soluble and therefore, can span the cell membrane to protect the entire cell. This is unique because many carotenoids are either lipid soluble (e.g. vitamin E) and protect the lipid/fat soluble part of our cells, or water soluble (e.g. vitamin C) and can only protect the water soluble part of our cells. The unique shape of the astaxanthin molecule allows it to penetrate the entire cell and provide superior antioxidant protection
Astaxanthin has UV-blocking properties, which helps to assist the skin in protecting itself against sun-related damage such as dark spots on your skin.
Astaxanthin can neutralize multiple free radicals at once, protecting your skin and body from oxidation, damage, and inflammation
Astaxanthin has been proven to increase blood flow, meaning that it will help your skin to have better circulation. Increased circulation has various benefits, including increased cell turnover, amplified elasticity, and increased water retention.
A highly powerful antioxidant
Reduces the effects of oxidative stress
Proven to help with redness and irritation
Benefits of Astaxanthin
Natural lipid peroxidation of the top layer (stratum corneum) reduces the natural skin barrier function. It can break down the collagen matrix, leading to wrinkle formation and loss of elasticity. In penetrating the skin and protecting each dermal layer from damage, astaxanthin helps reduce moisture loss, promote smoothness, and elicit cellular renewal. Analyses have shown that astaxanthin is also an efficient absorber of specific ultraviolet sunlight rays that may contribute to skin aging and cancer. These properties explain why astaxanthin is included in topical skin care formulations.
Superior Skin Protection via Astaxanthin
Astaxanthin provides a much stronger radical-protection (Singlet oxygen) than alpha-Tocopherol or beta-Carotin.
Astaxanthin reduces the synthesis of melanin and is stronger than Arbutin, Kojic Acid and Vitamin-C derivates.
