Unique Blend of SOD derived from blood orange and Peroxidase derived from aloe leaves

Just about everyone’s heard of the expression “when life’s given you lem­ons, make lemonade”. Although this adage may seem like a cliché, it serves as the perfect lesson for how to address the threat of extrinsic reactive oxygen species (ROS). If left untreated, ROS such as the superoxide anion can certainly perpet­uate damage on the skin which contributes to inflammation and aging. However if we looked at the bigger picture we would realize that we can use this threat to our benefit. By using a two-step process, we can neutralize the superoxide anion and convert it into water which will enhance hydration to improve the way our skin looks and feels.

FSS Moisturezyme Protect is a unique blend of Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) containing blood or­ange and peroxidase rich aloe extract. In a two-step reaction the SOD converts the superoxide an­ion into hydrogen peroxide. Then the peroxidase converts the hydrogen peroxide into water. This reaction not only provides excellent antioxidant benefits to uphold young skin but it also provides potent moisturization for improved appearance and skin health.

An in-vitro study was conducted to evaluate FSS Moisturezyme Protect’s ability to neutralize peroxide. In the study, peroxide strips were dipped into an aqueous solution of 1% Peroxide which turned the strips dark blue. This color represents the presence of the oxidant on the strip. FSS Moisturezyme Protect was then applied to the strip. After 7 minutes, the strip had completely lost its color, indicating that FSS Moisturezyme Protect has the ability to neutralize peroxide in only 7 minutes.

An in-vivo moisturization study was also conducted to evaluate the hydrating properties of this ingredient. In this study, the initial moisturization values were measure on the volar forearms of 10 (M/F) volunteers. The test materials were then applied on the volunteer’s arms immediately after initial measurement using a Nova Impendance Meter.

For added perspective, measurements of the 5% and 2% solutions of FSS Moisturezyme Protect were com­pared to a solution of glycerin, water and an untreated site. Results indicate that FSS Moisturezyme Protect provides unique moisturizing benefits which are comparable to those of glycerin.

For this reason, FSS Moisturezyme Protect is an excellent means for providing potent anti-aging and rejuve­nating benefits while providing unique brand differentiation for a multipurpose and innovative cosmetics.
