Vitamin A is a vital element in our skin, which aids in preventing and postponing premature aging of the cells. Nowadays, all leading cosmetics methods seek to incorporate vitamin A in their treatments. Recently, a new key player has made its appearance into the cosmetics arena – Bu Gu Zhi – an ingredient extracted from the seeds of the Babchi (Psoralea corylifolia) plant. It acts just like vitamin A, producing recovery processes and preventing the aging of the skin.
Retinol – Classic Cosmetics
The study of vitamin A began in the early 19th century. By the middle of the 20th century researchers were able to isolate it, and now it is considered a vital supplement by the World Health Organization. Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A. Since the 1970’s, Retinol and retinoic acids have been considered by researchers as natural substances having a biological effect like that of vitamin A. Skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema have been treated for years with these same acids, which aid in stimulating the top layer of the skin, and result in a more even distribution of melanin (the brown pigment in our skin), as well as the creation of new collagen in the deeper skin layers. However, together with the many benefits of Retinol, many studies have warned that uncontrolled use of retinoic acids could lead to hypersensitivity, peeling, and even superficial burns following exposure to sunlight.
Bu Gu Zhi – Natural Cosmetics
Chinese and Ayurveda medicines have been using Bu Gu Zhi extracted from Babchi (Psoralea corylifolia) seeds and flowers for centuries. It seems like this new/old superstar is about to change the face of active cosmetics for good. Medical studies show indications of its anti-inflammatory qualities, its ability to regenerate cells, and its highly potent antioxidant properties. It is therefore a perfect natural substitute for Retinol, as both substances act to emulate the benefits of vitamin A. New developments in dermatology highlight this plant as the proper substitute for the synthetic form of vitamin A, which aids in recovery processes and prevention of skin aging.
Ninja Latte – a Patented Winning Combination
If we rely only on classic cosmetics (Retinol), we risk overly aggressive treatment, and if we rely only on natural cosmetics (Bu Gu Zhi) we discover that treatment is more superficial and ineffective in dealing with the damages that time and sunlight have already embedded in our skin. Cue in our Ninja Latte serum. A smart serum which is based on Bu Gu Zhi extracts combined with capsulated Retinol – a patented technology developed by an Israeli company, which can produce Retinol while encapsulating the active agents, ensuring its full absorption in the cells without losing any of its benefits.
Ninja Latte encapsulates two highly effective active substances (from the world of Chinese medicine and classic cosmetics), heralding a new form of anti-aging in a single, winning product. Continuous nourishment of our skin with the active substances contained in Ninja Latte has a wide array of benefits; it renews the cells, solidifies the skin of the face and neck, lightens sunlight blemishes and pigmentation, smoothens wrinkles and lines, softens pores, and reinforces the skin to a smooth, even texture.
The uniqueness of the Lilly Kai product line is that it combines elements from the world of natural Chinese medicine – proven, ancient wisdom that includes the use of herbs and plants as a method of natural cosmetics – together with the advantages of Western medicine, namely, active agents engineered through advanced technology.
