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
  • Sun care 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.

The new look of your web site is a plus to the already fantastic products, prices, and customer service. Your expertise, service and integrity keep me a a loyal customer. Thank you Jen!
Melanie, (Herbal Natures)

Really surprised at how quickly my order was processed. Arrived, shipping coast-to-coast in just a couple of days. Kudos to a great business.
Jo Ann, (Palm Beach Soaps)

I just received my first order and am very pleased. The prices were great, the items I ordered were excellent and the delivery time was outstanding.

I messed up my shipping instructions when I ordered so I emailed right away and they corrected it for me right away - service like this is becoming unheard of - keep up the great work!!

Steve

When running a small business cost is a very big deal. So far no one can match Lotioncrafter's prices, the 2nd most important thing is speed of shipping, I still can get over just how fast I get my orders. They have a life time customer here in Chicago..
Angel Mason, (AKM Holistic)

To be late sometimes is expected. Things happen in business. I probably wouldn't do a review in that case. A company that was always extremely late, I'd probably do a negative review on. This is just the opposite...they are more often than not...even faster than I expect. They also cater to those who seek more natural formulations.
