Prunus domestica, the nutritional therapeutic combo created through years of evolution by Mother Nature, contains a gem compound recognized by modern science as an anti-ageing jewel.
Rutin, a bioflavonoid present in various plants is a potent antioxidant and emollient with biological effects on skin ageing. This latest hot topic of scientific papers provides an alternative to Retinol, which tends to irritate the skin.
Nature has an abundant amount of plant metabolites called bioflavonoids. Many of these are known to scientists and give many fruits, vegetables and flowers their vibrant colour while neutralizing reactive oxygen species by donating one of their electrons. As such, they can stabilize the molecule and break the oxidative chain. When applied to the skin, they defend against damaging effects of stress, pollution, and ageing. The result is improved skin tone and visibly healthier, vibrant skin.
Scientists demonstrated that Rutin has potent scavenging activity, which prevents oxidative stress on the skin, increases skin elasticity and decreases length and number of wrinkles. Simply put, it has biological effects on ROS-induced skin ageing. Moreover, when compared to, for example, Retinol, it does not irritate even sensitive skin.
Prunus domestica species has shown the presence of 15 flavonoids within them, including Quercetin and Rutin, some of the most researched compounds of this kind. Their bio-active effects, as described above, include antioxidant properties, and reduction of age spots and wrinkles by maintaining healthy blood circulation and decreasing capillary permeability. By improving micro-circulation, they boost skin cells, which subsequently receive more oxygen and nutrients.
In short, bioflavonoids in the EX PRŪNĪS Antioxidant Treatment Oil nourish and protect the skin, thus naturally maintaining a more youthful appearance.
