Hello. This is Jinny, the pharmacist.

2021 is less than ten days left. The end of the year is always sober. In particular, it is a time when you are deeply concerned about the traces of the years left on your face. There is no change as noticeable as aging skin.

Therefore, today , I would like to introduce a healthy material that can be helpful to those who are worried about their skin age , especially those who have tried inner beauty ingredients such as collagen and elastin, but have not felt the effects .

It is 'Tomato Seed Extract' . Let's take a look at the benefits of the tomato, a familiar vegetable that's easy to come across, but also unexamined, when it comes to skin health. 

1. Promote collagen and elastin production
Many of you probably know that collagen and elastin are proteins that make up the dermal layer of our skin. The problem here is that both collagen and elastin are gradually decomposed due to factors such as aging, ultraviolet rays, and stress, and waste products are also created at this time. This can be seen as 'skin aging' .

In 2019, a Japanese research team tested the effect of  tomato seed extract as a functional cosmetic material on the maintenance of skin homeostasis and reported the following.

"Tomato seed extract" not only promotes the production of collagen and elastin, but also enhances the absorption of these degradation products, thereby maintaining the extracellular matrix of the skin in a normal state at all times to prevent and improve skin aging represented by wrinkles and skin sagging. It is a material that can contribute to

2. Improve epidermal dryness and suppress inflammation
When you think of saponin, you probably think of medicinal components found in ginseng or soybeans. Tomato seed extract also contains saponin, especially 'lycoperoside' , a type of steroid saponin . Recently, the academic world is paying attention to the various functions that this ingredient performs in the body.

In September of this year, a paper was published in Molecules that studied the effects of lycoperoside extracted from tomato seeds on skin health .

“ These findings indicate that lycoperoside H can improve epidermal dryness and suppress inflammation by increasing SC (stratum corneum) ceramide and steroid anti-inflammatory activity. ”

3. Improvement of skin elasticity index
When we feel that our skin is stretching weakly, that is, when the elasticity of the skin is not the same as before , we feel the age of the skin. 

A study published this year in the Journal of Cosmetics, Dermatological Sciences and Applications described the effect of tomato seed extract on skin elasticity. 

“ TSE [Tomato Seed Extract (200 mg/day)] standardized with Lycoperoside H improved facial firmness index. Therefore, it has been suggested that daily intake of TSE is beneficial for maintaining facial skin elasticity. ”

Today, we looked at the skin-related benefits of tomatoes that are so familiar. Like this, in the future, I plan to shed light on a new side of familiar food so that you can know and eat anything. 
I hope you have a healthy day in body and mind. It was Jinny.
