ABS Viola Tricolor Extract PF may also be used to increase the concentration of hyaluronic acid within the epidermis to enhance the skins’ water binding properties; as well as increase the synthesis of the CD44 membrane receptor which binds hyaluronic acid in the skin. Optimal epidermal hydration can increase cellular metabolism so cells function more efficiently. By increasing cellular efficiency, certain cellular activities such as protein production increases also. Proteins such as collagen are vital to epidermal integrity. Increasing intracellular production may, not only improve the skin, but also decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. ABS Viola Tricolor Extract PF may be utilized in a variety of skin and hair care formulations to increase epidermal hydration and improve cellular function.
Results of the increase in CD44 following treatment with test materials.... Read More
CD44 is the cellular receptor with specificity for Hyaluronic Acid. The effects of ABS Viola Tricolor Extract PF on the increase in the CD44 receptor were determined using the flow cytometry method on human keratinocytes. A 2% concentration of ABS Viola Tricolor Extract PF was observed to increase the proliferation of CD44 receptors by 43% compared to the negative control and by 7% more than the positive control. The use of ABS Viola Tricolor Extract PF as a means to increase the prevalence of the
CD44 receptor appears to be dose dependent.

In addition, we evaluated the long term hydration of this product over a period of 28 days. The results indicate
that ABS Viola Tricolor Extract PF may be used to effectively hydrate the epidermis for an extended length of
time. Compared to the placebo, ABS Viola Tricolor Extract PF is capable of hydrating the skin by more than
10% after a period of 14 days, and almost 20% over the period of 28 days.

The results indicated that ABS Viola Tricolor Extract PF is capable of increasing the percent concentration of hyaluronic acid by approximately 42%. Therefore ABS Viola Tricolor Extract PF may be useful for retaining epidermal moisture.
Mean changes in wrinkle characteristics using 4% ABS Viola Tricolor Extract PF.... Read More
The anti-wrinkle effects of ABS Viola Tricolor Extract PF were examined using a panel of 25 female subjects. Silicone mold replicas of test subjects’ outer eye area were used to determine a decrease in total wrinkle surface, total wrinkle length and total number of wrinkles. The results indicate that using 4% ABS Viola Tricolor Extract PF twice daily for 28 days is effective for decreases the number of wrinkles presents in the outer eye area while also minimizing the total wrinkle surface and wrinkle length.
