Wasabi Extract

Wasabi Extract
Wasabi Extract is obtained from the roots of the Wasabia japonica plant that is indigenous to Japan. Wasabi Extract is a multifunctional active ingredient that demonstrates powerful antioxidant and antimicrobial characteristics. These characteristics are beneficial for both skin and hair care. Wasabi Extract also demonstrates skin soothing characteristics.

The three primary types of compounds found in Wasabia japonica are: Oxido-reductases, isocyanates and glucosinolates. Of particular interest are the Peroxidases, Superoxide Dismutase and Sinigrin (allyl isothiocyanate).

Superoxide dismutase in conjunction with peroxidase is responsible for the scavenging and neutralization of both the Superoxide and Peroxide radicals which contribute to premature aging. Results from in vitro studies have demonstrated that Sinigrin (allyl glucosinolate) directly inhibits oxidative reactions in DNA. Allyl Isothiocyanate also demonstrates antimicrobial characteristics that can be useful in formulations.

Wasabi Extract can be used in the following types of products.
-facial cleansers
-facial toners
-anti-aging
-creams and lotions
-hair color retention
-anti-inflammatory
