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.

I purchase a 5LBS bucket of Shea Nilotica from Lotion Crafter (my first time ever purchasing off this site). The creamy, buttery, light yellow color of it is amazing!!!! It is super soft, light scented, and looks like vanilla ice cream. I am VERY happy with my purchase,and will certainly purchase again. I use by itself on my skin and mix in my whipped body butters. It isn't grainy at all. 5 STARS!!
Charmaine Pitt, (SuriiShae Naturals)

Second order from LC. Experience with customer service, shipping and product quality are superb.

I did an extensive research on suppliers, and I have to say you can pretty much get everything from here.

I highly recommend this supplier to anyone and everyone.

Happy finding!
Annabelle C Cohen, (N/A)

My biggest dilemma is that I live in Hawaii and finding reputable and affordable suppliers is near impossible, and once you locate one the shipping is out of this world ($50+ for shipping alone normally); when I found your website I was hopeful. Not only did you have the refined Shea Butter I was looking for, but you had everything else too! And the shipping was VERY affordable. I received my order 1 day sooner than I expected it (and shipping to Hawaii normally takes longer than shipping 'locally' within the continental US). I couldn't be more pleased with everything that you have to offer. I will definitely be ordering again, you have a customer for life!
