Marine Derivatives & Cell Leaf Cultures...?!
A leaf culture is created when a young leaf shoot is placed in a chemical medium where it then grows and continues its development under strictly dictated, controlled conditions. I'm sure you're wondering what cell leaf cultures have anything to do with skincare, but they are actually quite important. Recent medical research and studies have shown promising results when evaluating the effects of these tiny cells.
For instance, a study conducted in 2015 looked at the effects of a particular extract derived from Aloe vera, NAE-8. This extract provided significant antioxidant protection and provided anti-inflammatory benefits as well. It was also found to offer up anti-aging benefits by encouraging cellular growth and reduction of free-radical damage to cells.
There is another scientific study from 2015, that looks at Crabapple [pictured above] leaf compounds and their antioxidant effects on the signs of aging on the skin; they also looked at its effects on evening skin tone/creating more melanin in the skin. When it comes to Marine Derivatives...they're a bit of a different approach... For starters, they are compounds derived from marine organisms and are usually from 2 specific types of coral species & 2 marine sponge types.
Additionally, marine Algae & seaweed provide opportunities to gather vital marine derivatives that offer up a variety of skin benefits. Besides anti-aging properties, these derivatives offer up promising advancements with sun protection benefits, anti-inflammatory & analgesic properties, & more!
