What’s in Caviar?
Apart from its positive effects on the brain and heart, cosmetic companies are incorporating the extract because of its rich protein and antioxidant content.
Many elements of the sea, including seaweed and algae, are also proven to provide DNA, reparative, beautifying and nourishing effects to the skin. Caviar, which is basically a marine living thing, also has an ample amount of sea minerals and nutrients that can make it a potent cosmetic ingredient.
A recent release from the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference has shown the breakdown of caviar’s nutritional components. This report showed that caviar is nutrient-packed with water, proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, minerals, vitamins, amino, and fatty acids, the ingredients behind the skin-nourishing and anti-aging claims of caviar extract. Because of these fancy eggs’ high content of amino acids, fatty acids, and lipids, they are loaded with Omega-3. A study released in 2011 proved that intake along with topical application of Omega-3 has significantly contributed to improving patients with Psoriasis. Another research project suggested Omega-3 can also protect the skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays by acting as absorbers and antioxidants.
Caviar’s vitamin-packed components include:
- Vitamin B6
- Folate DFE
- Vitamin A RAE
- Vitamin A IU
- Vitamin B-12
- Vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol)
- Vitamin D (D2 + D3)
- Vitamin D IU
- Vitamin K (phylloquinone)
Vitamin B12 is one of the keys to glowing skin, healthy hair, and stronger nails because of its fundamental role in cell reproduction. With all of these nutritional benefits, you can see why it’s an in demand ingredient in luxury skin care products.
Caviar’s Beauty Boosts
Caviar’s large content of water, omega-3 fatty acids and highly saturated lipids provides a great source of hydration—not just for the skin but also for hair and nails.
As shown above, caviar extract is packed with vitamins and minerals that are responsible for preventing dullness and drying of skin. These vitamins and minerals—with the aid of the amino acids—can also even out skin tone and improve skin texture.
The antioxidant components in caviar extract help in protecting the skin by lessening the harmful effects of UV radiation and free radicals to the skin cells. This can also reduce signs of aging.
The water, carbohydrates, proteins, omega-3, unsaturated fats, amino acids, vitamins, mineral, and other trace elements can aid in slowing down the aging process by keeping the skin moisturized, nourished, and vitamin-enriched.
