Soy Protein for Anti-Aging and Skin Health

Natural soy’s abilities to deliver multiple benefits to the skin is clear and evidenced by clinical and scientific research in having a rejuvenating effect on skin and maintain superb skin care performance. Soy protein, free of fat, fiber and carbohydrates, is processed from the soybean plant, and being a vegetable product has no cholesterol. Soybean oil, which is vitamin rich, has a molecular structure which allows it to penetrate the top layer of the skin –the epidermis. It can actually remain in the skin and stimulate the synthesis of elastin, collagen and other proteins in cell growth. Soy works to reverse abnormal cell formations in the skin.

Containing phytoestrogens (plant estrogens), Soy helps skin cells rejuvenate. Soy-based skin care products can correct skin tones and even out pigmentation which is caused by sun exposure and hormonal changes. Being naturally rich in Vitamin E, lecithin, and essentially fatty acids, Soy benefits the skin when applied topically. Vitamin E promotes healing and regeneration of the skin through its antioxidant properties. Essential fatty acids moisturize collagen under the skin surface and lecithin helps maintain elasticity of the skin by smoothing out fine lines –all combined help prevent premature aging.

Also a nutritionally significant dietary source of isoflavones, Soy contains genisten, daidzein and glycitein which not only help with skin maintenance but may assist women with osteoporosis, hormone replacement, and menopausal symptoms. In addition, these isoflavones work to lower cholesterol and research maintains that 23 grams of soy protein daily may reduce the risk of heart disease.

Scientific and clinical studies confirm that soy works in the reduction of discoloration and blotchiness by evening out the appearance of pigments on the surface of the skin. In addition, soy proteins help moisturize skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
