SesaFlash is just one breakthrough ingredient that’s shown to have a brilliant difference on the quality and elasticity of the skin. Considered a new generation tightening agent, SesaFlash moisturizes and firms with efficacy and speed (as in oh-my-god instantaneity), rendering it one of the hottest new additions to skincare on the market.
But what, exactly, is Sesaflash? And where does it come from?
In essence, SesaFlash is hydrolyzed sesame protein—that is, proteins extracted from those seeds we sometimes find in our bagels that, while tiny, pack a huge punch of beneficial nutrients.
Chief among them? Fats—as in the good kind. Sesame brims with mono and polyunsaturated fats like oleic, palmitic, stearic and linoleic acid, all of which, Dermaviduals confirms, are essential to replenishing the barrier of our skin, protecting us from sun damage, and leaving us with skin so lustrous there’s no need for Photoshop.
What’s more, sesame—which goes down as the oldest cultivated oil crop—is high in zinc, which promotes collagen production and results in supple, glowing skin.
According to Livestrong, the oils derived from sesame are also rich in Vitamins A and E, both of which contribute to smoother skin and fewer fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, Livestrong affirms, “sesame oil contains antioxidants and sesamol, which counteract free radicals—a primary cause of aging.”
When sesame protein is hydrolyzed—a process in which natural acids are used to break down water and protein molecules—it creates an extract that hydrates and tightens upon impact.
