Watermelon Fruit Extract increases the natural defense system of the skin due to the synergistic acting effect of the vitamins, carbohydrates and Citrulline. The Watermelon Extract has been found to improve the appearance of aged and stressed skin. Watermelon Extract gives the look of a younger, regenerated skin and has been shown to reduce appearance of skin redness after UV irradiation. The extract is also rich in Vitamin C and naturally occurring carbohydrates and amino acids helping to protect the skin from everyday environmental elements and promoting a rejuvenated look of the skin.
Watermelon plants have their own defence system by producing solutes that protect the cells against drought, heat & UV-rays by a DNA-protecting mechanism. These are water soluble molecules, for example amino acids, which penetrate easily into the skin. Amino acids are often used in a variety of cosmetic applications not only for their conditioning benefits, but also to keep our skin and hair hydrated. In addition to being the fundamental building blocks of all proteins, amino acids also contribute to our body's Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF) to maintain proper hydration levels.
Watermelon Extract's synergistic composition is also very strong in protecting the DNA of the skin's fibroblasts and keratinocytes. Watermelon Fruit Extract helps prevent DNA damage in skin cells in two ways: by preventing direct damage from UV light and by inhibiting the release of free radicals induced by UV light.
