Sakura in Sujiko Peptide
Coincidentally, Sakura is classified into Rosaceae family (group of rose)—Sakura represents beauty of Japan whereas rose represents beauty of the west. The beauty of Sakura begins to be widely accepted and represented in all manner of consumer goods of Japanese style (e.g. kimono, stationery and dishware, etc.).
Sakura or cherry blossoms are edible and both are used as food ingredient in Japan. However, the transience of the blossoms (typically one or two weeks) limited its application in food and cosmetics. JAPAN technology successfully cleared procurement difficulties, enabling the stable production of SAKURA EXTRACT in bulk.
In addition to the emotional values, Sakura was studied by Oryza Oil & Fat Chemical Co., Ltd. and identified caffeoyl glucose (1-caffeoyl-O-β-D-glucopyranoside) and quercetin glucose (quercetin-3-O-β-D-glucopyranoside) as the major functional component. SAKURA in Sujiko Peptide has been proven as an anti-glycation agent with promotion of collagen formation in fibroblasts that leads to anti-ageing.
