Unlike other sesame seed extract that is only rich of unsaturated fatty acid, SesaHelio™ is a group of natural small, fat-soluble natural phenolic type antioxidants identified and purified from sesame seeds and are easily to absorbed by the skin. It’ also the key ingredients that provides effective prevention of the oxidative deterioration of sesame oil itself.
Our research data shows SesaHelio™ presented a different anti-oxidant mechanism compared with Vitamin C or Vitamin E, two potent antioxidant bench marker. The DPPH-scavenging ability of Vitamin C is potent at the beginning but decreases over time. While SesaHelio™ provided a increasing and long-lasting antioxidant property. After 24 hours, the DPPH-scavenging capability of SesaHelio™ is about 1.5 times and 4 times as potent as Vitamin C and Vitamin E. In addition to DPPH assay, SesaHelio™ also presented significant inhibitory effects on RNS and IL-6 induced by UV-radiation in keratinocytes, which indicates that SesaHelio™ can provide a broad and long-lasting protection to skin from free radicals and environmental factors.
