BENEFITS OF SULFORAPHANE AND BROCCOLI OIL
Calming and Soothing: Broccoli oil naturally helps reduce inflammation, reducing redness and taming rashes as well as other inflammatory skin conditions. This antioxidant-rich oil has essential fatty acids called “arachidonic acid,” which is the second most abundant polyunsaturated fatty acid in the epidermis.
Promotes Skin Regeneration and Repair: Topical products containing sulforaphane promote skin repair while leaving the complexion with a beautiful natural glow.
Skin Re-Generator: Broccoli contains glucoraphanin that can regenerate the skin when the skin is prone to sun damage. It also contains beta-carotene, Vitamin E, and Vitamin B complex that helps the skin by giving it a glow and keeping the skin young.
Contains a Natural Source of Retinol: Broccoli seed oil supplies a natural source of vitamin A, which has shown to help increase cell turnover and help slough off old dead skin cells.
Improves Skin Immune System: Vitamin C, beta-carotene and other vitamins and minerals such as selenium, copper, zinc, and phosphorus present in dark green vegetables like broccoli can greatly improve your skin immune system, thus protecting you from various skin infections. Vitamins A and K, omega-3 fatty acids, amino acids, and folate, on the other hand, add glamor and shine to your skin.
Best Sunscreen: This cruciferous vegetable is more effective than sunscreen in protecting your skin from UV radiation. This is because sunscreen absorbs UV radiation and prevents it from penetrating the skin whereas broccoli extract when applied topically gets directly absorbed into the cells of the skin by producing a matrix of protective enzymes that defend against damage from UV exposure. This can be attributed to the presence of a chemical substance called sulforaphane which reduces skin redness and inflammation caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Thus, it is far better than conventional sunscreens.
Protection From Skin Cancer: Repeated sunburns increase the risk of skin cancer. Sulforaphane in broccoli provides protection against UV radiation by controlling the redness medically known as erythema. In this way, it significantly reduces the risk of skin cancer.
Cancer Prevention: Researchers have proven that broccoli can prevent cancer. Broccoli has certain properties that can remove estrogens that cause cancer from the body. It has anti-carcinogenic properties that prevent cancer.
Great Hydration: Essential fatty acids in broccoli oil helps to hydrate skin and also deeply penetrates to provide long lasting moisturization. The beauty of this oil is it isn’t a pore-clogging oil like mineral oil and other petroleum-based ingredients. This lightweight, luxurious oil works equally well for all skin types.
Nourishing: This lightweight oil is full of vitamin C and E other nutrients. Recent studies show broccoli seed oil nourishes the skin as well as hair, leaving a radiant sheen that looks youthful and glowing.
Maintains Skin Health: Broccoli is rich in antioxidants such as vitamins A, B, C, and E. Vitamin C stimulates collagen production, thus keeping your skin healthy whereas vitamin A protects your skin cell membranes and prevents ultraviolet radiation damage.
