The science behind the claims
The extracellular matrix of skin is a combination of the fibrous proteins collagen and elastin, along with water-binding glycosaminoglycans. Together, these form a strong and resilient framework of connective tissue that gives the skin elasticity and strength —ultimately supporting the appearance of youthful and vibrant skin.
International teams of researchers stretching from Brazil to Japan have discovered that ingredients extracted from green coffee beans have been scientifically shown to rejuvenate aging skin. Several studies have demonstrated significant improvements in the reduction of wrinkles, increased firmness, and reduced inflammation of facial skin.
When Brazilian scientists tested Coffea arabica seed oil on human skin, they found a 1.5-fold increase in elastin production and a 2-fold increase in collagen production compared to the control group. These two proteins are essential for filling wrinkles with collagen produced naturally within the skin matrix and preserving the firmness and flexibility of facial skin.
In addition, treated skin cells had nearly 7-fold higher expression of aquaglycerolporins-3 (AQP-3) and a 2-fold increase in the amount of glycosaminoglycans. These proteins act as a tag-team to halt moisture loss and improve skin hydration. First, glycosaminoglycans behave like a sponge to bind and trap water molecules in a water reservoir, then AQP-3 transports them to the upper layers of the skin where they reduce excessive facial dryness and fine lines.
