Rice Ceramides

Ceramide is a brown extract refined from rice bran or rice germ. Ceramide contains a large amount of glycophingolipids which are effective antigens and immunogens. Glycophingolipids have been classified as cell surface antigens as binding sites for bacterial toxins and bacterial infection.

Ceramides are contained in the skin and play important roles in maintaining the barrier function and homeostasis of the skin. Ceramides are found to be reduced in the stratum corneum (outermost layer of the skin) of atopic dermatitis, dry skin, and aged persons. Thus, a lack of Ceramide is considered to be a cause of wrinkles and dry skin.

Key Benefits:

  • Skin hydration
  • Anti-aging
  • Repairs and restores dry and damaged skin

Whitening Effect:

A study conducted on melanogenesis using cultured B16 melanoma cells in vitro showed that Ceramide is stronger than Ascorbic Acid, Arbutin, and Ellagic Acid in causing a skin whitening effect.

Water-Holding Effect:

Several clinical trials have established that Ceramide has a moisturizing effect. Ceramide is absorbed by the digestive system and carried to the stratum corneum by blood circulates, thus improving the barrier and water-holding function of the skin.

In a study conducted by Imokawa et al., it was confirmed that topical applications of Ceramides improved atopic dry skin conditions.

It was also reported that Ceramides may also increase the anti-allergy efficacy of skin, inhibit free radical attack and increase the inhibitory effect on elastase, collagenase, and tyrosinase. This demonstrates Ceramide’s efficacy in slowing skin aging and preventing the stress of skin.

Collagen Peptides

Collagen peptides are small bioactive peptides obtained by enzymatically hydrolysis of collagen, in other words, the breaking down of the molecular bonds between individual collagen strands to peptides.

Hydrolysis reduces collagen protein fibrils of about 300 – 400kDa into smaller peptides with a molecular weight of lower than 1000-2000Da. Collagen peptides are also known as hydrolyzed collagen or collagen hydrolysate.

The much smaller and easily digestible collagen peptides are produced by controlled enzymatic hydrolysis.

Collagen peptides are highly bioavailable. They act as building blocks, renewing bodily tissues, such as skin, bones and joints.

It has been proposed that collagen peptides may act as a messenger to the cells and trigger the synthesis and reorganization of new collagen fibers, thereby supporting our tissue structure.

Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated collagen peptides’ health benefits. Key areas of benefit include healthy aging, joint and bone health, sports nutrition and skin beauty.

Collagen peptides are cold water-soluble and highly bioavailable and bioactive. This makes them a better option for functional foods and beverages and dietary supplements than gelatin.

Collagen peptides have a molecular weight of less than 1000-2000Da.

24 Extract

24 Extract is a whole food concentrate of 24 fruit & vegetables providing the same antioxidant protection as the daily consumption of 5 portions of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Indeed, Unhealthy lifestyle and eating habits may impair the antiradical defense potential, leading to higher free radicals occurrence in the body.

The Mediterranean diet is reliant mostly on fruit & vegetables, major sources of antioxidants from phenolic compounds that scavenge these free radical species.

  • 24 Extract delivers a similar amount of polyphenols than 5 portions of the most consumed fruit & vegetables as measured by Folin Ciocalteu (+20%)
  • 24 Extract has a higher antioxidant capacity than 5 portions of F&V when measured with ORAC 5.0™ (+82%)
  • 24 Extract offers a higher protection of human red blood cells against oxidation (+271%)

Additionally, a 12-week study has been run to observe the biological effect of a supplementation with 24 Extract.

The bioavailability of its polyphenols has been proven, showing an increase of the Plasmatic Total Antioxidant Capacity of 10%). 24 Extract brought to the subjects anti-ageing benefits, with a decrease of the free radicals in the bloodstream (-50%).

All these scientific findings are available in the downloadable brochures and science pack.

Olive Extract

Hydroxytyrosol is the main antioxidant found in olive oil. Independent laboratory analyses have demonstrated that hydroxytyrosol is one of the most potent natural antioxidants yet discovered with the highest level of free radical protection activity ever reported for any natural antioxidant compound.

Hydroxytyrosol is a powerful free-radical capturing agent (scavenger), which protects cells against oxidative stress. Many of the most common human diseases are a result of the action of free radicals.
