Arabinogalactans

January 13th, 2017

Arabinogalactans

One of the key ingredients in our Blue Diamond Collection are arabinogalactans. Read on to discover their magical benefits and why you should be including them in your daily skincare regime.

First of all, it is important to understand what rababinogalactans are. These are polysaccharides derived fromnasturtium (watercress).  They work to protect our skin from hypoxic stress and stimulate cellular transport of oxygen by synthesis of cytoglobin (a protein, which facilitates diffusion of oxygen through tissues.)

What is hypoxic stress, and what does it mean for my skin?  To make it easier to understand - imagine that your skin cells need a lot of oxygen to properly work. Hypoxic stress happens when the skin does not get enough oxygen and as a result, it loses tissue integrity, which affects the skin’s ability to heal, renew, and directly affects skin’s fibroblasts, which keep skin firm.

By fighting against hypoxic stress and accelerating the oxygenation of the skin, arabinogalactans are essential to maintain your skin with a more refined texture and a healthier glow.
