Hydrolyzed Viola tricolor extract

Hydrolyzed Viola tricolor extract is an oligosaccharide-rich extract of the pansy V. tricolor. Small company-sponsored human clinical studies investigating emulsions containing hydrolyzed V. tricolor extract reported significantly reduced wrinkles and improved skin hydration. In test tube studies of human skin cells, hydrolyzed Viola tricolor extracts significantly stimulated the synthesis of aquaporin-3 (AQP) (a water channel in the lipid layer of human skin cell membranes); increased secretion of hyaluronic acid; and increased the synthesis of CD44, a hyaluronic acid receptor.
