FSS Imperata Cylindrica Extract OS
Oil Soluble


Imperata cylindrica, also known as Cogon Grass, is native to warm regions in West Africa that 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.


Because of its ability to survive in flooded environments, it is not surprising that FSS Imperata Cylindrica Extract OS is an excellent long-term moisturizer that shows 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 3-dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP), which may help increase intercellular osmosis, water is believed to be drawn into the cells and may remain there even after showering. DMSP is an osmoprotective compound that can be found in many plants with known moisturizing properties. Research has shown that DMSP is derived from methionine, one of the essential amino acids in human nutrition.


By increasing hydration within the skin’s cells, FSS Imperata Cylindrica Extract OS may in turn help to ensure increased cellular metabolism and enhanced collagen synthesis, providing long term skin enhancement properties. For a modern and elegant solution to dry, wrinkly skin, FSS Imperata Cylindrica Extract OS may offer a completely satisfying moisturizer without heavy or unnatural ingredients “weighing down” the skin, leaving one looking younger and feeling healthier and more vibrant.


FSS Imperata Cylindrica Extract OS is said to provide hydration to the stratum corneum so that it looks younger and wrinkles fade.
