Regimen's Take

Isoflavone, isolated from soy, potent antioxidnant that reduces UVA and UVB-induced redness and inflammation. Studies have shown that is able to slow down photoaging both scavenging free radicals ("helping prevent protein/dna damage") and inhibits the activation in inflammation and redness, suppressing the amount of MMPs that can degrade collagen. We believe antioxidants should be part of a daily skincare routine, Genistein Most antioxidants work by scavenging free radicals or inhibiting processes caused by UVA/UVB damage, or direct UVA/UVB damage. tyrosine protein kinesis & necrosis factor KB.


As with any antioxidant, no single antioxidant can tackle the whole UV damage/ inflammation / etc. process - so it's best to look for Genistein (like any antioxidant) in combination with others
The Skincare Encyclopedia aims to improve public understanding of the biology and chemistry of skincare. The Encyclopedia is rooted in core scientific principles and extensive research, in many cases in collaboration with the authors of the original studies referenced. This is a project of Regimen Lab, maintained by a group of multidisciplinary scientists, MDs, and researchers.
