LLS Beauty’s new Xpozuki  active ingredient has been designed to protect the skin, scalp and hair against exposome-induced stressors, defined as the totality of exposures to which an individual is subjected throughout its life, including from the sun, pollution and climate change, as well as chemical and physical aggressions. These factors, combined with the body’s response to each, can lead to premature signs of aging.
This multifunctional, biotechnological ingredient is sourced from organically farmed azuki beans or red mung bean (Vigna angularis). They are rich in a category of natural peptides - that LLS Beauty has named Azukides - which have shown to be responsible for the antioxidant effects of the ingredients. Thanks to proprietary biotechnological processes, LLS Beauty has been able to enrich the content of Azukides in the ingredient.
Xpozuki is made of 100% content of natural origin, as defined by the ISO 16128 standard.
Multiethnic skin, scalp and hair care solution
According to Lubrizol, Xpozuki prevents, defends and repairs damage in the skin, scalp and hair linked to the exposome.
