Purple corn, and cosmetics
Corn is considered as a cash crop of Thailand with widespread household consumption which in addition to being eaten as food. Each part of the corn also has many medicinal properties and benefits, including the use of stems, stamens, pistil, pollen, and seeds. Quality Plus has the opportunity to study corn varieties in collaboration with Kasetsart University, and participate in research on the use of purple corn cob extracts.
The research found that the Purple Corn has a high amount of Lysine and Anthocyanin. It is an important source of anti-oxidants that reduces the likelihood of cancerous tumors by enhancing immunity to the body against pathogens, promote red blood cell function, delay the occurrence of clogged fat in the blood vessels, reduces heart disease, slow down the deterioration of the eyes, helps to control sugar level and slow down aging by slowing cell degeneration. In addition, it has the advantage of the nutritional value that can be used in many ways including the cosmetic and beauty industries. Quality Plus appreciate the value of Thai plants, and have an interest in advanced research development. We have the strategic partnership with the Institute of Agriculture, Kasetsart University to continue the research of Anthocyanin from Purple Corn, for the future of the global beauty industry. In-depth research results (Deep Biotechnology) divided into the following categories:
- Purple corn extract
- Anthocyanin from purple corn
Why Anthocyanin from Purple Corn?
At present, the beauty and cosmetics industry prefer to use natural extracts, that does not cause allergic irritation. From research and experiments found that the Purple Corn, that has improved the species, contains a high amount of Anthocyanin. It is a flavonoids compound, that has medicinal properties (Nutraceutical), with a high level of antioxidant. Antioxidant helps slow down the degeneration of cells and have applied to research to develop and use as an ingredient in high-value cosmetic product formulas (Facial skin care products).
Quality Plus has the opportunity to conduct studies together with scientists, who specialize in the research of Anthocyanin from Purple Corn, for commercial purposes.
