Cindy Crawford, the former super model, has put her name on an anti-aging beauty line called Meaningful Beauty. With Dr. Sebagh testing and retesting formulas, he seems to have settled with a powerful antioxidant, superoxide dismutase, found in rare melons. It is commonly called the "youth molecule" and is claimed to be age defying.
Atioxidants in the Melon
The melon comes from the south of France, according to Aaron Piertzen, a writer for Sensitive Skin Care. The potent antioxidant is extracted from the melon and then added to the skin. Antioxidants protect the skin from free radicals, such as sun and the stress of everyday elements. An enzyme in the melon is mixed with the skin to protect it from the harm that causes wrinkles.
Charentais cantaloupe is the actual name for the "miracle" melon used in the skincare line. Mother Earth News says that these melons, from France, are delicious. The melons have thick skin, with orange flesh in the middle, like other melons. They too have small seeds. The skin of the cantaloupe is a light yellow and said to have an amazing aroma, exotic and perfume like.
