We are reintroducing our Undercover Agents to the superstar of Japanese natural cosmetics companies, Mirai Clinical.  Founded with the holistic Japanese practice of “less is more” (i.e. the less products you use, the healthier your skin), Mirai Clinical‘s cosmeceuticals fuse traditional Japanese ingredients, including those sourced from the sea, with advanced science to provide superior quality personal care experiences.  The company’s signature ingredient is the powerful antioxidant, Astaxanthin, which is clinically proven to offer 6,000 times more powerful than Vitamin C!  Mirai’s 3-in-1 Multi-Tasking Face Serum, featuring astaxanthin, green tea, rice extract, and silk protein, is a toner, moisturizer, and age-defying serum in a single application. Together, they help diminish hyper-pigmentation and the appearance of  fine lines and wrinkles by rejuvenating skin cells, rather than simply hydrating them.  The serum can also be used as a makeup primer before applying makeup, the serum is frequently used by modern-day geikos and maikos before applying their makeup.  Mirai’s skin-friendly ingredients do not include harmful chemicals, preservatives, coloring, and fragrance.  Check them out on YouTube here.

ALGA CLINICALLY PROVEN TO PROTECT THE SKIN FROM UV RAYS!

Get Ready for the Summer with Astaxanthin from Algatech (PRNewsfoto/Algatechnologies, Ltd.)

Skin is the first line of defense against the assaults of nature, stress, and time. But it needs nutrients, just as the rest of the body does. One nutrient shown to be particularly exemplary at protecting the skin from within is natural astaxanthin, a powerful carotenoid antioxidant derived from certain algae and causes the pink or red color in salmon, trout, lobster, shrimp, and other seafood.  A new randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial conducted by the Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Research Laboratories in the Research and Development management headquarters of the FUJIFILM Corp. in Japan was recently published in the journal Nutrients.  This study provides stronger evidence for the protective role of algal-derived astaxanthin against skin deterioration caused by ultraviolet (UV) light. FUJIFILM’s research group conducted the research using Algatech Ltd.’s natural astaxanthin, already formulated in their branded supplement ASTOTS.

With scientific evidence from human, animal, and cellular models, astaxanthin has been shown to enhance the innate sun protection and reduces UV damage and other insults that cause skin to age. Nature has already tuned into this: fish and birds accumulate astaxanthin from microalgae in order to enhance their protection from oxidative stress and UV radiation. Human skin can benefit as well. In fact, natural astaxanthin from microalgae is what researchers refer to as the ideal “summer supplement.”   (more…)
