If you are looking at a skincare label, you may see something that you have not seen before in the ingredients list. With a major push on MD formulated skincare, PteroWhite is being used more and more as an ingredient in these skincare products.
PteroWhite, otherwise known as pterostilbene, has proven to be very effective in skincare for very specific applications. During a recent study, “The researchers observed a positive change at all time points in skin hydration and elasticity in both male and female subjects with regular usage of pTeroWhite cream. They found significant improvement in under-eye fine lines at all-time points and in wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet area at the end of the study. The pterostilbene preparation was able to improve the skin luminosity with continuous application,” reported Nutraceuticals World.
A second study was also conducted and reported in Cosmetics. That study found that “a cream formulation containing 0.4% pTeroWhite was a natural SPF ingredient. 12 healthy volunteers used the cream, according to ISO 24444:2010 regulations, and showed an in vivo SPF value of 6.2 ±1.30. The cream was found to be safe and nonirritant in a repeated patch test conducted in 25 individuals before the SPF study.
“The cream showed an SPF of 8.84 ±0.01 in vitro, while pTeroWhite as a significant ingredient had an SPF value of 21.73 ±0.06. The study also demonstrated potent antioxidant effects of pTeroWhite in various in vitro and cellular test systems. The study concluded that pTeroWhite could be a safe ingredient in topical sun-protective formulations.”
