Our VeggieSoap is a rich blend of all natural plant oils, oatmeal and broccoli sprouts that gently exfoliates, cleans, moisturizes and soothes your skin, improving its appearance, tone, and texture.
Broccoli sprouts are rich in a compound called glucoraphanin. When broccoli sprout cells break open (when the plant is damaged or eaten) glucoraphanin is released and mixes with a naturally occurring companion enzyme (myrosinase). When these two compounds meet, they form a new substance called sulforaphane. Sulforaphane supports the skin’s ability to detoxify, inhibits bacterial growth, has anticancer activity, and provides powerful protection against damage caused by UV radiation. It acts by stimulating production of enzymes (including glutathione S-transferase in the skin) that boost its ability to defend against sun damage—the UV rays that cause the skin to wrinkle and age prematurely.
Applied to the skin, concentrated broccoli sprout extract helps to minimize inflammatory processes, which can diminish redness, puffiness, and skin irritation. It may also repair sun-damaged skin, and offer protection against the UV-induced oxidative damage that can lead to skin cancer.
