Caviar Extract- What To Know About This Beauty Breakthrough


Although caviar may be best known as a delicacy made of roe or wild sturgeon eggs, this luxurious food may also pack skincare and hair benefits. While it’s traditionally been served as an expensive treat, caviar extract just might be a new ingredient to add to your beauty regime.

Caviar extract has been known to offer anti-aging benefits, which may lead to a youthful, smooth complexion. In fact, the extract derived from these fish eggs has found its way into a number of face creams, sleep masks and skin serums.

According to a 2012 study published in Rejuvenation Research, using a caviar-derived homogenate improved the mitochondria function of the skin and had a positive impact on collagen synthesis. In other words, it helped to reduce the effects of aging skin.

Caviar extract is boosted with Vitamin A and D, along with a host of B vitamins (including B1, B2 and B6). As well, the antioxidant-rich extract contains amino acids, organic compounds which are known to strengthen the skin and hair.

Speaking of maintaining your locks, caviar hair treatments can replenish the hair cells and leave you with moisturized strands. Due to a high content of healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, caviar just may play a role in hydrating your dry tresses. As well, essential minerals like calcium, potassium, magnesium and phosphorus can help to encourage healthy hair.

Whether you’re aiming to achieve a youthful glow or revitalize your strands, adding caviar extract to your regimen just may be a smart beauty move.
