Sakura is classified into Rosacea family (group of rose)—Sakura represents beauty of Japan whereas rose represents beauty of the west. The beauty of Sakura begins to be widely accepted and represented in all manner of consumer goods of Japanese style (e.g. kimono, stationery and dishware, etc.). Sakura or cherry blossoms are edible and both are used as food ingredient in Japan. However, the transience of the blossoms (typically one or two weeks) limited its application in food and cosmetics.
Our Sakura Extract was studied by Kyoto Pharmaceutical University and identified caffeoyl glucose (1-caffeoyl-O-β-D-glucopyranoside) and quercetin glucose (quercetin-3-O-β-D-glucopyranoside) as the major functional component. SAKURA EXTRACT has been proven as an anti-glycation agent with promotion of collagen formation in fibroblasts that leads to anti-ageing.
