The three major skin care effects of glutathione

Author: China Glutathione suppliers & manufacturers Release time: 2023-07-19 Column: Product News


Glutathione is a tripeptide composed of glutamic acid, cystine and glycine, present in every cell of the body. Glutathione plays an important role in the biochemical defense system of the human body and has various physiological functions.

Due to the antioxidant properties of glutathione, its efficacy and role in skin care is excellent.

1. Freckle removal and whitening

Glutathione binds to copper ions on the tyrosinase molecule, inactivating the tyrosinase activity and then it inhibits the production of melanin. Glutathione reduces free radicals and peroxides, weakening the biochemical activity of melanocytes. It interacts with dopamine to reduce the formation of melanin.

Glutathione can also decompose melanin, neutralize the toxicity of pigment cells, prevent cell necrosis and deterioration, and achieve a better freckle removal effect.

In short, the whitening effect of glutathione acts on the entire process of melanin production.

2. Anti-oxidation and anti-aging

The structure of glutathione contains active sulfhydryl groups. This special structure makes it the main free radical scavenger in the body, allowing free radical scavenging reactions to continue in the body. Glutathione is not only directly involved in scavenging free radicals, but also regulates external antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E, to maintain their active (reduced) state. Otherwise, the oxidized vitamins will become new toxins, accumulate in the body, and then form new free radicals.

After cleaning free radicals, glutathione can also promote cell regeneration and increase cell vitality, make skin elastic, improve cell viability, and delay skin aging.

3. Enhance skin elasticity

The skin is continuously supplemented with glutathione, which provides a good environment for the growth of new skin cells. As a result, the proportion of new skin cells among epidermal cells increases. Glutathione has a good comprehensive moisturizing effect and makes skin cells healthier. Makes skin hydrated, smoother and more elastic.

In general, glutathione can block the formation of melanin from the source, effectively resist oxidation and achieve anti-aging effect.

With the continuous deepening of the research on peptide substances, the miraculous functions of peptide substances have been continuously discovered, and they are playing an increasingly important role in the health and beauty of the human body.
