Carboxy-Methyl (CM)-Naringenin-Chalcone is a derivative of the polyphenol naringenin chalcone, which naturally occurs in the peel of citrus fruits. CM-Naringenin-Chalcone exhibits greatly improved pH stability and water solubility as compared to the natural compound and features both anti-allergic and anti-inflammatory properties.
CM-Naringenin-Chalcone has been shown to reduce the release of LL-37 induced pro-inflammatory cytokines and also diminish the capillary blood flow and rosacea redness.
Anti-inflammatory effect (reduction of cytokine release) in stressed keratinocytes
Visibly reduces facial redness in volunteers with rosacea
In vivo study
In vitro study
- Visibly reduces redness in sensitive skin
- Protects and comforts stressed skin
- Down-regulates pro-inflammatory mediators
Naringenin chalcone is a polyphenol that naturally occurs in the peel of plants e.g. citrus fruits. In nature, the naringenin chalcone spontaneously isomerizes to the flavanone naringenin, which exhibits only weak activity and is poorly soluble in water. CM-Naringenin Chalcone is a stabilized form of the active molecule that ensures full activity in cosmetic formulations.
