Chia Rejuvenate can deliver exceptional wound healing, anti-inflammatory, film-forming, and anti-irritant benefits, as well as improve the sensorial properties of any formulation. Chia is the ancient Mayan word for strength. Over time, skin loses strength and elasticity, resulting in fine lines and visible signs of aging. This extract harnesses the therapeutic properties of Chia seed mucilage to strengthen and revitalize the skin naturally. The Mayans and Aztecs used this now wildly popular superfood in regenerative medicine as a poultice for wounds to promote healing and reduce inflammation. These restorative qualities of the Salvia hispanica seeds result from mucilaginous polysaccharides. Topical application provides intense, long-term moisturization and a persistent and perceivable sensation of skin smoothing and soothing properties.
Polysaccharides are long-chain carbohydrates capable of stabilizing biomolecules and assemblages, such as cell wall membranes. Polysaccharides, such as hyaluronic acid, are known for their film-forming and hydration capacities in personal care formulas. The film-forming capabilities of polysaccharides defend the skin barrier and promote repair, which can decrease signs of aging and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Reduced elasticity and the development of fine lines and wrinkles result from damage to the skin’s protective barrier, a natural loss of water, and a decline in polysaccharide concentration on the skin. Scaly, dry skin results from an abnormal skin barrier caused by low moisture levels. Damaged skin needs to be protected at the surface and healed from within.
Chia Rejuvenate is a natural alternative to the current carbohydrate chemistry seen in the medical industry to create synthetic scaffolding that promotes wound healing. The isolated polysaccharides extracted from the Salvia hispanica seed have demonstrated their ability to aid cell proliferation and thus impart wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties to the skin. A functional, active ingredient that improves the slip and cushion in finished formulations, Phytofuse Rejuvenate® soothes the skin and provides antioxidant and moisturization benefits. Phytofuse Rejuvenate® is ideal for skin and hair care formulations, helping to increase moisture levels and provide protection from environmental stressors.
