dual approach to skin relaxation
Ashland has explored 2 pathways inspired by neurocosmetic science, to research the calming and soothing properties of infini’tea:
- the competition of theanine against the glutamate excitotoxin
- the skin expression of BDNF.
Infini’tea™ is up to 10 times more concentrated in theanine than green or black tea. Theanine is known to act as an antagonist to glutamate found in industrial food, an excitotoxin that has been described to be responsible of worsening skin problems such as eczema.
BDNF, the Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor is shown to decrease in different inflammatory states of the skin such as atopic dermatitis and psoriasis. The application of infini’tea, similarly to the practice of yoga helps to increase the expression of this factor in the skin.
