Genistein
CAS No.446-72-0

Genistein is a phytoestrogen found in soy with a structure similar to estrogen. It behaves as an anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory ingredient as well as a collagen producer. With its low molecular weight, Genistein can penetrate well into the skin. As a potent anti-oxidant, Genistein reduces lipid peroxidation and scavenges free radicals, and alleviates the damage these free radicals can cause in skin’s tissues. It has been studied as a wound healer due to these properties.

Genistein stimulates the production of collagen synthesis as a tyrosine protein kinase inhibitor, and inhibits the breakdown of existing collagen and elastin, which helps skin retain its elasticity and tone.  It has been shown to increase epidermal thickness, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Studies show it may be effective in the treatment of cellulite as it modulates the growth and differentiation of adipose tissue as well as reinforcing connective tissue and dermis, all of which contribute to cellulite development.  One study showed the use of Genistein at 0.006% in a lotion reduced thigh measurements by 2 cm after six weeks.

Genistein is suggested for use in sun and post sun care products as it interrupts the UV signalling cascade that leads to photoaging, as well as decreasing the oxidative stress skin endures when exposed to sunlight. It has been demonstrated to reduce sun induced redness and inflammation.

Key attributes:

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-oxidant
  • Skin firming and smoothing
  • Collagen synthesis

Applications

  • Anti-aging products

Incorporation: With hot process formulations, Genistein can be solubilized in propylene or butylene glycol and added to the cool down phase of the product while mixing, or it can be sifted into the emulsion at the end with mixing.  In cold process emulsions, one can add it to an emulsion in the water phase without pre-solubilizing it.  For clear or translucent serums, pre-solubilizing is recommended.

Our Customers Say...
Jen, I have been wanting to say thank you in a very special way for a long time. I have been trying to switch as much of my business over to your shop as possible. Everyone talks about your fabulous customer service. But what I am most impressed about it how smart you are and the wide variety or products you have available for the small business, The quality of research you have posted on your site is not available anywhere else. Whenever I have a very difficult formulating problem to solve I come to your site. None of my other suppliers (many of whom I spend 100's of dollar a month with) can answer even simple questions. You have gotten back to me within minutes with very educated answers and suggestions. I feel like you have given me tools, resources, and base ingredients to really blossom. I am so grateful.

A great experience. Prompt service, delivery in 2 days, box carefully packed with a thank you item, and when shipping costs turned out to be less than estimated, a partial refund. Email communication throughout the transaction really makes this company exceptional... Will definitely recommend to others. Thanks so much!
