On October 9th, the anti-aging skincare brand Likewise Skincare responds to an article published by The Telegraph which reveals that sea cumbers may assist in reducing wrinkles.
According to The Telegraph, research conducted by scientists from Queen Mary, University of London has revealed the wrinkle-banishing properties of sea cucumbers. The article states that both sea cucumbers and sea urchins have the ability to boost the elasticity of collagen in the human body. According to Professor Maurice Elphick, “Probably the most exciting discovery from our research was finding genes encoding peptides that cause rapid stiffening or softening of collagen in the body wall of sea cucumbers.” In addition, Elphick explains, “if we can find out how peptides cause the body wall of a sea cucumber to quickly become stiff or soft then our research might lead to new ways to keeping skin looking young.”
The article states that in addition to helping people maintain a healthy complexion, sea urchins are also rich with a peptide that is comparable the hormone calcitonin, which helps maintain strong bones. Likewise Skincare, a manufacturer of anti-aging skincare products, commends the informative article. According to Likewise Skincare representative Lisa Shariat, “It’s absolutely fascinating to know that something as simple as a sea cucumber can make huge strides in anti-aging. This could be an incredible breakthrough for all. For anyone interested in banishing wrinkles before they begin, I recommend using a moisturizer that has an SPF. Defending yourself against UV rays is one of the most beneficial ways to prevent skin damage.”
The article states that the discovery came when scientists examined the “DNA sequences of thousands of genes in the purple sea urchin Strongylocentrotus purpuratus and the edible sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicas”. With hope, this research could result in advantageous medical breakthroughs, The Telegraph reports. According the article, this research can be found in the journal PLoS ONE.
