Sunflower Shoot Active

Time fighting and energizing

About Sunflower Shoot Active

Sunflower Shoot Active is a purified extract of organic sunflower sprouts, which energizes the skin and delays aging. Sprouts have naturally occurring levels of nutrients that are higher than the corresponding mature plant.

Gene array analysis as well as in vitro studies performed on a reconstructed epidermis showed the capacity of Sunflower Shoot Active to delay aging and preserve the skin’s structure and quality.

Proven Efficacy

  • Increased production of cellular energy

  • Protection against stress-induced senescence

  • Positive effect on genes important for the build-up of ECM components

  • In vivo study

  • In vitro study

Claim Ideas

  • Reactivates ATP production, the cell's essential fuel
  • Delays senescence of skin cells
  • Regulates the gene expression to protect the cellular matrix
