cylindrica, also known as Cogon Grass, is native to warm regions in West
are partial to brief flooding, but it is a hearty plant that is able to survive
in a widerange
of climates. It is a tall, slender lanceolate that arises from a thick
underlayer of rhizomes,
and the leaf margins are finely toothed and embedded with silica crystals.
of its ability to survive in flooded environments, it is not surprising that FSS
Imperata Cylindrica Extract PF is an excellent long-term
increased hydration effects even after 24 hours. Its potential for increased moisture
levels is due to the all-natural, plant extracts that are rich in potassium and
(DMSP), which may help increase intercellular osmosis, water
is believed to be drawn into the cells and may remain there even after
is an osmoprotective compound that can be found in many plants with known
properties. Research has shown that DMSP is derived from methionine, one
of the essential amino acids in human nutrition.
increasing hydration within the skin’s cells, FSS Imperata Cylindrica
Extract PF may
in turn help to ensure increased cellular metabolism and enhanced collagen
providing long term skin enhancement properties. For
a modern and elegant solution to dry, wrinkly skin, FSS
Imperata Cylindrica Extract
PF may offer a completely satisfying moisturizer without heavy or
“weighing down” the skin, leaving one looking younger and feeling healthier and more vibrant.
the Karl Fischer method, FSS Imperata Cylindrica Extract PF is composed of
65-75% water. Thus based solely on
the composition of the plant matter, it may be safe to assume that it is
naturally an excellent
Imperata Cylindrica Extract PF is said to provide hydration to the
stratum corneum so that
it looks younger and wrinkles fade.
moisturization benefits of 2.0% FSS Imperata Cylindrica Extract PF were compared
to the biological control. Test
Water Emulsion Base + 2.0% FSS Imperata Cylindrica Extract PF (in O/W base
indicate that FSS Imperate Cylindrica Extract PF is capable of
increasing average level of skin moisturization
by almost 45% when compared to the biological control. Our assay illustrates
that it is possible
long-term moisturization claims based on the incorporation of FSS Imperata
Cylindrica Extract PF in
a cosmetic or personal care formula.
