ACB Tonka Bean Bioferment PF

Selecting the right lighting is all the rage! From camera filters to effects that enhance our appearance, lighting has made its way to the forefront as a means of perfecting skin aesthetics. Depending on the type of light or its direction, light can accentuate imperfections, cause shadows and make fine lines and wrinkles more visible. The isolated polyphenols found in ACB Tonka Bean Bioferment PF allow us to harness the power of UV rays, which typically harm our skin, and use them to emit light in the visible spectrum, increasing the luminescence of our skin. The result is skin that appears bright and less wrinkled. The polyphenols also help to even the skin tone while masking imperfections and providing antioxidant protection from extrinsic damage.

  • Fluorometer Study

    Diffusers are intended to optimize the appearance of our skin by masking dullness and minimizing the appearance of fine lines that are only visible by the shadows that form on the skin when light is reflected. However they merely diffuse light and cannot fully counteract dullness. Instead of using diffusers, ACB Tonka Bean Bioferment PF utilizes photo-activation technology to emit light in the visible spectra. It contains fermented phyto-compounds from tonka beans that are capable of absorbing invisible light in the UV spectra and then converting it to visible light. This study was performed to illustrate that following excitation, ACB Tonka Bean Bioferment PF is capable of emitting light in the visible spectra.

  • ORAC Assay

    ACB Tonka Bean Bioferment PF exhibited antioxidant activity comparable to 200M Trolox®. The antioxidant capacity of ACB Tonka Bean Bioferment PF increased as the concentration increased, as a result we can assure that its ability to minimize oxidative stress is dose dependent. With the present study we can confirm that this unique ingredient is not only capable of providing functional benefits but it is also capable of providing potent antioxidant benefits when added to cosmetic applications.
