Project Title Mangostana Anti-Aging Hand Cream
Project Category Innovation
Abstract Mangostana Anti-Aging Hand Cream has anti-ageing properties made from natural ingredients derived from mangosteen, Garcinia mangostana belonging to the family of Clusiaceae which originates in Southeast Asia. The natural ingredients of the cream have antioxidants that include prenylated xanthones, benzophenones and bioflavonoid. It provides nutrients to the hand by building new collagen fibres, creating new elastin, and growing new skin-cells. It also functions in destroying harmful free radicals, counteracting the damaging of tissues, and treating aging or causing its retardation, resulting in the ability of skin cells to repair in a few minutes. There is no risk of chemical effect as the sources of the cream are from the plant parts of mangosteens. Thus it has a great potential as a product in multi-billion dollar (?) cosmetic industries. Mangosteens therefore can be cultivated not only for food but also in generating extra income for the producers.
