Sakura Collagen (SC+)
The symbol of JAPAN
Sakura flower (cherry blossom) has been favoured by Japanese from ancient time. According to the oldest record, it was planted for their beauty and adornment of the ground nobility as early as 794. Japanese people love Sakura flower so much that they enjoy Hanami (a festival to view flowers, probably typical to Japanese custom). Sakura blooms in spring after long and dark winter, so it becomes an omen of good fortune and synonym of spring. People regard Sakura as sic and elegant symbol of Japanese beauty as well as Mount Fuji. Sakura blossom was used to bring fortune in agriculture annually in some regions, implying how Japanese people cared for the season when Sakura blooms.
Sakura is classified into the Rosaceae family (a group of rose)—Sakura represents the beauty of Japan, whereas rose represents the beauty of the west. The beauty of Sakura begins to be widely accepted and represented in all manner of consumer goods of Japanese style such as kimono, stationery and dishware. Sakura or cherry blossoms are edible, and both are used as a food ingredient and in cosmetics applications in Japan. Sakura extract has been proven as an anti-glycation agent with the promotion of collagen formation in fibroblasts that leads to anti-ageing.
Based on clinical trials, sakura extract exhibited (1) reduction of skin Advanced Glycation End products or AGEs (2) suppression of skin elasticity reduction, (3) reduction of pigmentation and reddish area, (4) suppression of increase in pores area, (5) suppression of dry skin and (6) improvement of skin smoothness.
