It can be hard to keep up with all the acronyms in the beauty and skincare world, but SOD is definitely one worth noting. SOD stands for Superoxide Dismutase, which is a naturally-occurring enzyme that is found in the dermis and epidermis. SOD is one of the three main ingredients in Shinso Essence, a serum that works to reduce wrinkles, brighten and tighten skin and much more. Here are a few fun facts about SOD.
SOD is found in many anti-aging beauty and skincare products. SOD neutralizes age-accelerating free radicals. As one’s body ages, their natural levels of SOD drop, so applying the product topically has been recommended to replace those natural antioxidants that are becoming fewer and fewer. SOD is usually sold in the form of a serum, lotion or cream.
SOD can help repair damaged skin cells. This potent treatment is essential to the production of healthy skin-building cells (also known as fibroblasts).
SOD is often used as an anti-inflammatory product. SOD has been used to help treat inflammatory diseases, burn injuries, eczema and more.
SOD is also found in most green plants and animals. Specifically, it can be found in barley grass, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage and wheatgrass.

Reading the ingredients on a bottle of your favorite moisturizer can leave you feeling confused. What exactly do all these big words mean and are they good or bad for my skin? Many of these ingredients are classified as fullerenes.
Fullerenes are powerful antioxidants made from carbon that are 125 times stronger than Vitamin C. They are microscopic and hollow spheres that carry active ingredients in your products into the skin. You may commonly hear them referred to as a “sponge” for this reason. Because of their shape and small nature, fullerenes allow other common ingredients like retinol and peptides to penetrate deeper into the skin.
Fullerene is just one of the many Nobel Prize-winning ingredients that furthers the technology of modern skincare. Scientists have found that this is an anti-oxidant material, which paved the way for the ingredient to be used in high-end skincare products.
Fullerene also has been proven to be highly effective at getting rid of cell-damaging radicals. Because of their antioxidant properties, fullerene is often used for acne or more commonly in anti-aging products, like Shinso Essence. Look for fullerenes in lotions, serums, face masks and more.

Before purchasing skin or beauty products, it’s important to take a look at what ingredients are in it. So many companies use unnatural or harmful chemicals in their products, which sets Shinso Skincare apart from the rest. Shinso products are a natural skincare treatment that will protect your skin by using the Earth’s most potent and powerful minerals, extracts and ingredients. In addition to ingredients such as coffea arabica seed, honey and panax ginseng root extract, the products also contain deep sea water.
The ancient Japanese believed the Gods gave the Earth and sea great healing powers. One folktale tells the story of a fisherman who sets out to sea to find two special gifts for his ailing wife. Upon returning, he gives her the water from the deepest part of the sea and a delicate, fresh flower. She drinks a mixture of the ground petals and water, and almost instantly, her frail body is rejuvenated and her cheeks glow with radiance. This ancient belief is magnified by the phenomenal powers of the current deep sea water found in Japan currently.
The scientific blend of ocean minerals from the deep sea water make all the difference in skincare products, like Shinso Mist. This rare water is classified as “deep sea” because it is harvested from 2,000 feet below the Earth’s surface. This pure and prized water originates from ancient glaciers in Greenland, which took 2,000 years to reach the shores of Japan. It’s said that this special water is a miraculous source of life, as well as the only dioxin-free water in Japan. Dioxin is a highly-toxic compound produced as a byproduct in some manufacturing processes, as well as an environmental pollutant. This water is never exposed to outside air, which helps to maintain the purity and prevent contamination, as mentioned above. Instead, the water is extracted to the surface using a sealed vacuum tube.
