ABS Imperata Cylindrica Extract PF

A plant-survivor in flooded environments, extracts of Imperata cylindrica act as excellent long-term moisturizers. In fact, ABS Imperata Cylindrica Extract PF has efficacy to support an increase in hydration levels 24 hours after application. ABS Imperate Cylindrica Extract PF's potential for increasing skin's moisture is due to the all-natural, plant extracts that are rich in potassium and 3-dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP). This can help increase intercellular osmosis, as water is thought to be drawn into the cells, remaining there even after showering. DMSP is an osmo-protective compound that can be found in many plants with known moisturizing properties.

  • In-vivo Skin Moisturization Assay

    The results indicated that ABS Imperata Cylindrica Extract PF is capable of increasing the level of skin moisturization by almost 45%, which is 88% more effective than the untreated control. Furthermore, the test product also enhanced moisture levels by 53% more effectively than the O/W base emulsion alone. The assay illustrates that it is possible to make moisturization claims, both as a means to enhance a formulation and for consumers to experience proven, long- term moisturization, when incorporating ABS Imperata Cylindrica Extract PF in a cosmetic or personal care formulation.
