Old Anti-inflammatory | Elasticity | Stimulates Collagen

 Banksia offers a vast quantity of phyto-compounds providing powerful antiaging, skin repair, fine lines, wrinkle and collagen support.

The active compounds found in BODI’s Banksia extract contain potent effects for the skin. For example:

  • Ellagic acid has potent anti-wrinkle activity and interrupts skin wrinkle and inflammation associated with chronic UV exposure that leads to aging.
  • Phenolics attenuate or prevent the progression of skin disorders (i.e. rosacea), and have antiaging benefits with antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects.
  • Isohamnetin has significant antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity.
  • Rutin intensifies the antioxidant activity of Vitamin C, so is synergistic with it, and is also a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory active. It also has powerful anti-melanogenic activity and is truly a multifunctional active.
  • Flavone glycosides have a strong scavenging action on free radicals with potent antiaging activity. It is an antiaging active and stimulates the growth of collagen in the skin reducing fine lines and wrinkles. This compound also strengthens capillaries, stabilises Vitamin C, and works to intensify the antioxidant activity of Vitamin C (see Kakadu plum).
