The main ingredient in Juva Skincare products – Fullerene
Fullerene has been widely studied for its antioxidant properties and has been proven to be highly effective at neutralizing the free radicals which can damage the skin from exposure to sunlight, air pollution, stress, and etc.
Fullerene is a molecule of 60 carbon atoms arranged in a hollow sphere, ellipsoid or tube. The radius of a single C60 is approximately 7.1Å, which is 0.71nm ( 1 Å=10-10 meter, and 1 nm=10-9 meter). This gives us an idea that it is an extremely tiny molecule.
Though Fullerene exists in nature and even in meteorites, it is rare. Many scientists working on the project have developed a way to produce pure Fullerene in large quantities.
Fullerene Can Solve the Most Common Skincare Problems at the Root
The research team at Juva Skincare found that the most common skin care problems like dullness, wrinkles, and enlarged pores are all due to free radicals. Free radicals are a byproduct of metabolism and a cause of aging skin. Staying up late, smoking, drinking and negative emotions like stress will increase free radical production. Combating free radicals is one of the main concerns of experts in all fields. Fullerene, an ingredient that received a Nobel Prize, has attracted the most attention. Its antioxidant capacity is 172 times higher than that of Vitamin C.
Compared to other antioxidant ingredients, Fullerene remains stable under high temperatures or in highly contaminated environments, which makes it a wonderful ingredient in products to maintain the same effectiveness for months before getting used up.
The tiny molecule of Fullerene can be absorbed by the skin easily, especially when paired with other products. The hollow structure and nano size makes Fullerene a vehicle that can help to drive other ingredients deeper into the skin.
The Effectiveness of Fullerene in Skin Brightening, Anti-inflammation, and Anti-acne
How Fullerenes get rid of free radicals is to neutralize missing or additional electrons of the free radical and get them into stable states. Neutralizing free radicals helps skin in many ways.
Brightening：Fullerene can neutralize free radicals that are generated from ultraviolet rays, control the formation of Tyrosinase and reduce Melanin production.
Anti-inflammation：Fullerene is powerful in oil control and anti-inflammation. Hence, it’s used to prevent acne from getting worse.
Anti-Acne：Unbalanced oil can lead to acne. Fullerene can balance oil production and prevent break outs.
