Where Is This Active Ingredient Found? Wild Yam Diosgenin is the active ingredient in the Lancome Absolue, Philosophy When Hope Is Not Enough, and Murad Resurgence skin care line.
Product Description & Benefits:
Isoflavones are polyphenolic compounds capable of exerting estrogen-like effects, meaning they will bind (weakly) to the estrogen receptors on the surface of your skin cells. Around menopause, skin responds to the decrease in hormone concentration with an overall metabolic slow-down. Skin becomes drier and thinner, and its efficiency as a barrier between body and environment decreases. Women who opt out of hormone replacement or never start hormone replacement will benefit from adding this active ingredient to their usual cream or lotion. There are several independent risk factors of wrinkles: age, exposure to sunlight, menopause, skin color, and smoking. The decrease in skin collagen due to estrogen deficiency in post-menopausal women is likely to aggravate the severity of wrinkles. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) decreases the risks of wrinkling. In the absense of HRT, utilize our Wild Yam Diosgenin in your skin care regimen to achieve a similar effect on aging skin. NOTE: If you are taking tamoxifen please ask your doctor before using this product.

What's Do It Yourself (DIY) Skin Care?
DIY Skin Care is an emerging trend in the beauty world where consumers are taking control of their skin care regimen and are making their own home-based recipes of skincare products by combining scientifically proven active ingredients inside creams. DIY presents an opportunity to create affordable beauty products at your home and to try different ingredients to arrive at recipes that are the most optimal for your skin needs. You can use DIY to simply copy well-known, expensive creams and make your own cheaper home version, or to combine your favorite cream with an ingredient that you've found to be beneficial.
