Naruko has released a new line called the Naruko Lupin Anti Wrinkle Firming line.
The packaging does seem very similar to the SK-II Cellumination line doesn’t it? The star here is of course white lupin which is said to boost the skin’s natural reconstruction processes, slow down the destruction of support tissues and repair and protect the skin.
Lupin is an ornamental flower but it has been cultivated for over 3,000 years for its nutritional value in the Nile valley and in Latin America. It is currently used in the food industry as an alternative to soya, being used in vegan sausages and tofu. Lupin seed extract is proven to boost skin own collagen production as a vegetarian and natural alternative to collagen and hyaluronic acid injections without the side effects.
A new study from France’s Silab examines the use of a white sweet lupine extract in skin care formulations. The study concludes that white lupine, which belongs to the legume family of plants, penetrates to the skin’s basal layers to promote cellular activity and revitalize keratinocyte differentiation that is the basis of SC renewal.
In addition it also contains the use of gemstones such as amethyst, platinum, and gold. According to TIA, gold’s negative ions remove the positive ions from our skin. Negative ions (hard to come by in our polluted atmospheres) are regarded as an important health treatment in health. A new baby’s skin has only 20% positive ions, whereas as we age we accumulate more. Positive ions contribute to skin aging and negative ions temporarily weaken the skin barrier, opening up the skin to make it more receptive to other beneficial ingredients in the product. History Of Whoo also uses platinum, gold and gemstones in their skincare. Read more about gold, silver and platinum used in skincare here.
