What is “Houttuynia Cordata Extract” that promotes healthy capillaries and beautiful skin with good circulation?

One of the key components of Double Inner Defense is Houttuynia Cordata Extract. Do you know that is? It is one of the key components behind clear and glossy skin. Here, we will introduce the mechanisms found in blood vessels that lead to beautiful skin.

The skin is cared for by blood flow. What is the connection between beautiful skin and blood vessels?

Our bodies are equipped with a structure known as the immune system that protects us from bacteria and viruses, and that maintains healthy skin. Capillaries support this by delivering nutrients and oxygen all over the body. In healthy young skin, these capillaries are well-spaced and extend to the furthest reaches of the skin. Capillaries that spread across the epidermis boost the skin, and create elasticity. On the other hand, in skin that has been worn down by aging and external damage, the capillaries are irregular, fine and brittle, and may even disappear, which leads to stagnated blood flow.

Houttuynia Cordata Extract strengthens the capillaries and delivers immune cells all over the skin

Houttuynia Cordata Extract is being widely researched not only in Asia but also in Europe and the U.S. This plant has a long history of use in Asia as a natural remedy. Shiseido has discovered that Houttuynia Cordata Extract enlarges, extends and strengthens the capillaries, causing them to spread to every area of the skin.

Houttuynia Cordata Extract promotes constant blood flow by enlarging and extending the capillaries while also renewing immunity by delivering immune cells all over the skin, leading to glowing skin that is full of life.
