Benefits of Maple Leaf Extract for skin.
Maple Leaf is a surprising ingredient in a world of skin care. As Canadians we love everything you can make out of maple leaves, but when we discovered that maple leaf extract also offers benefits for skin, we had to add it in our skincare portfolio. According to scientists Maple Leaf helps to increase elasticity of the skin by preventing elastin breakdown from elastase, it also gives the skin a firmer appearance and a brightened radiant glow. Elastin keeps skin looking bouncy and full. As elastin diminishes, the skin loses its ability to bounce back, often resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and sagging. If we can protect the elastin in the skin, we can maintain a strong healthy skin foundation to prevent the development of wrinkles and improve their appearance once they have formed. Studies suggest that maple leaf extract can inhibit the activity of elastase, which is the enzyme responsible for breaking down elastin, it also suggests that maple leaf extract has anti-inflammatory properties and can lighten dark spots. ......
