What is Placenta?
Placenta is rich in a variety of nutrients that can raise a fertilized egg to an infant within 10 months. It is said that the naturally balanced nutrition of placenta cannot be reproduced artificially.
|What does it do?|
Placenta extract contains abundant amount of FGF (fibroblast growth factor), which stimulates three building blocks of the skin: collagen, the plump part of the skin; elastin, the tight and firm part of the skin; and hyaluronic acid, which keeps the skin hydrated and smooth. Placenta also inactivates Tyrosinase, a key enzyme that converts tyrosine to DOPA. (DOPA is converted to melanin.) That is why placenta extract contributes to fair and clear skin.
Turnover and aging
|Skin cells regenerate from the bottom up. Older cells are pushed upwards till they die and fall off. The turnover time is roughly one month, however it slows down as we age.|
|When turnover is slow, sun damage is more likely to leave unsightly blotches. Older skin cells stay longer making the skin look dull and rough.|
Because of its ability to speed turnover, placenta is known to brighten the skin and effectively reduce blemishes, dullness, and acne scars.
|Where is it extracted?|
fracora’s placenta is extracted from SPF (specific pathogen free) pigs in Japan.
