Litchi Seed Extract
Inhibition of the loss of Elastin
Inhibition of Elastase
Elastin is distributed in the entire dermis of the skin. Tension and elasticity of skin kept by moderate balance of collagen and elastin and hyaluronic acid. Elastin maintains appropriate elasticity and strength of the skin. When elastase, an enzyme, is activated, and elastin is degraded, wrinkles and sags grow as aging phenomena of the skin. Elastin produced in the body is degraded by the elastase. Litchi Seed Extract inhibits elastase at a low concentration, and decreases the degradation of elastin.
