Factors such as ozone layer depletion, extreme temperatures, and strong UV radiation have resulted in an urgent need for skincare products that offer an extra layer of protection against a precarious environment. When searching for a natural plant source to bolster skin defenses against the perils of environmental stress, look no further than agave. FSS Agave HSP incorporates the defensive mechanisms employed by agave to protect the skin from damage caused by increasingly intense and harmful surroundings. The succulent plant expresses heat-shock proteins (HSPs) as an extraordinary defense system to protect itself while thriving in harsh desert conditions that grow more callous as global warming steadily advances. FSS Agave HSP is the result of the fermentation of agave with Saccharomyces cerevisiae for enhanced bioavailability to deliver the reparative, protecting, and soothing benefits of heat-shock proteins. FSS Agave HSP is ideal for protecting against environmental factors that are a detriment to the health and beauty of our skin.
Agave is a perennial plant found in tropical and subtropical arid environments. Agave is exposed to persistently changing stress factors, such as drought and extreme temperatures, which cause damage to the plant cell and lead to oxidative or osmotic stress. The agave’s remarkable ability to shield itself from environmental stressors makes it an ideal natural defender against the sun and extreme heat. As a mechanism to adapt to the environmental stress, the agave plant produces a group of proteins known as HSPs. Heat shock and other forms of pathophysiological stress induce the expression of HSPs in all cells and tissues. The heat shock response results in an increased expression of HSPs enabling cells to resist damage from further stress exposure.
FSS Agave HSP capitalizes on the restorative power of the plant’s heat-shock proteins to maximize epidermal hydration while stimulating collagen synthesis for optimal anti-aging benefits. Between these benefits and the ability to stabilize cell membranes, FSS Agave HSP can help to overcome the wide array of environmental factors that are a detriment to the health and beauty of our skin.
FSS Agave HSP can be used in cosmetic and personal care products as the perfect addition to promote moisturization, wound healing, soothing, and the overall health of the skin.
