FSS Cinnamon Liposome


Reveal the natural glow of your skin with the purifying properties of cinnamon. This sweet, savory spice which is often associated with the warmth of the holidays and exotic locales is now being used to balance skin tone and leave you with a flawless complexion. FSS Cinnamon Liposome is an innovative ingredient that effectively delivers antioxidants to the skin while sequestering copper to down-regulate tyrosinase activity.

Cinnamon, one of the oldest known spices, is obtained from the inner bark of several trees that are native to Sri Lanka. This spice was highly prized among ancient nations and regarded as a gift. Cinnamomum aromaticum, called cassia or Chinese cinnamon, is an evergreen tree that is primarily known for its aromatic bark, which is used as a spice. The bark of this type of tree is thick with a much rougher texture than other types. Cassia is used in traditional Chinese medicine to cure the common cold and is considered one of the most fundamental herbal prescriptions. This type of cinnamon has a slight, distinct odor and taste that has led to its widespread use in commercial baking.

Several laboratories have found Cinnamomum cassia to be a safe, natural skin lightening agent. Many traditionally used skin lighteners such as, hydroquinone and corticosteroids have effectively been used to reduce hyperpigmentation. However these synthetic products have been associated with negative effects, such as cell toxicity, the reason why they are tightly regulated or banned. This has led to the search for more natural and safe plant based skin solutions. Cinnamomum cassia bark was found to have natural skin lightening properties relating to its capacity to inhibit tyrosinase activity.

Tyrosinase is a copper containing enzyme that plays in key role in melanin production. Copper is the essential cofactor of tyrosinase and is required for it to carry out catalytic activity. The copper atoms in tyrosinase interact with oxygen to form a highly reactive intermediate in the initial oxidation reaction of melanogenesis. At the beginning of the melanogenesis pathway, tyrosine is converted to dihydroxyphenylanine (DOPA) with tyrosinase acting as the catalyst. DOPA is then converted to DOPA-quinone and eventually melanin is produced through a combination of polymerization and oxidation. Cinnamomum cassia bark has natural tyrosinase inhibiting components that restrict the process of melanogenesis through an unusual mechanism. These natural components, linderanolide B and subamolide A, have been shown to exhibit effective anti-pigmentation abilities.
Incorporating FSS Cinnamon Liposome into finished formulas has a significant impact on melanin levels. Please note that skin lightening products can be used in over the counter application however they cannot be claimed as the active ingredient. Incorporate FSS Cinnamon Liposome into finished formulas to lighten and even skin tone while incorporating potent antioxidant properties for increased functionality.

FSS Cinnamon Liposome is stable at a pH between 4-7 and should be incorporated into formulations during the cooling phase or at temperatures below 60C.
