What does Date Palm Kernel extract do for the skin?

Arrestage Laboratories is in constant contact with chemists and scientists around the world who help us stay on top of the latest discoveries, so we can continue to invent and manufacture truly cutting-edge products that deliver visible results.

When we were told the Date Palm Kernel extract exhibits antiaging properties and significantly reduces skin wrinkles. The chemists at Arrestage Laboratories found in breaking down the elements of Date Palm Kernels that it contains 7 compounds that act in synergy to help delay visible effects of aging in the skin, including Phytosterols for barrier function, Ursolic Acid to regenerate the skin, antioxidant Tocotrienols, and Isoflavones for anti-aging.

In their three year study, Arrestage Laboratories has concluded that the extract has also helps eliminate toxins from the skin, and to increase type 1 collagen synthesis, which is responsible for keeping the internal structure of fibers in the skin plump and firm.

The Study shows that 1% of Date Palm Extract increases anti-oxidating activity by 42% in 24 hours, and when exposed to UVA light, the anti-oxidating effects increased by 66% in 24 hours (tested on human fibroblasts) – this means Date Palm is effective in blocking the damage that free radicals cause, to help keep your skin strong and young overall.

Hormones play a central role in skin appearance and are implicated in skin aging. Date palm kernel is rich in phytohormones and we investigated the antiaging properties of date palm kernel in this in vivo study on wrinkles.

When adding cream to Arrestage moisturizers, the cream containing the 2% Date Palm extract was applied for 5 weeks to the eye area, and results showed a significant reduction of surface depths of wrinkles – in fact, a 60% improvement! The analysis of amino acids composition by HPLC showed that, the date palm extract contains, a high concentration of Aspartic acid, Proline, Glycine ,Histidine, Valine, Leucine and Arginine, but low concentration of Threonine, Serine, Methionine, Isoleucine, Tyrosine, Phenylalanine and Lysine and very low concentration of Alanine (1.942 µg/ml).

The date palm kernel reduced the depth of wrinkles by 3.52% (p = 0.0231). These results are statistically significant and were clinically confirmed where visual improvement was seen in 60% of the volunteers treated. This in vivo study demonstrates that date palm kernel exhibits a significant antiwrinkle effect and is therefore of interest in the newest line of Arrestage Laboratories antiaging skin care products.
