Mexicans say that blue agave – the plant used to make tequila, the national drink of Mexico – has many health benefits. Now it seems that it also helps reduce skin wrinkles. We’ll soon have cosmetics based on agave tequilana. A French company specializing in the production of natural ingredients for the cosmetics industry has launched an active ingredient in the market that could represent an alternative to the hyaluronic acid used in many cosmetic formulas. As we age, the production of hyaluronic acid in our skin decreases. The new ingredient, based on yeast oligosaccharides from blue agave leaves, works by stimulating the natural internal synthesis of hyaluronic acid. The skin is better hydrated and so becomes softer and smoother.
