We say this all the time, our goal is to provide healthy skin products that motivate individuals to take better care of their skin which leads to taking better care of every aspect of their life. In the world of skincare, sometimes the most effective ingredients come from humble sources. Cucumis sativus, commonly known as cucumber, is one such unassuming hero. Beyond its crisp texture and refreshing taste, cucumber offers a wealth of benefits for your skin. Let's peel back the layers and explore why Cucumis sativus fruit extract and Everything Green Tea Sleeping Mask deserves a spot in your skincare routine.
The Botanical Origins of Cucumber
1. Cucumber's Water-Rich Composition: Cucumbers are composed of a staggering 95% water—a natural hydrator that quenches your skin's thirst. But there's more to this green wonder than meets the eye.
2. Nutrient-Rich Goodness: Beneath that cool exterior lies a treasure trove of nutrients. Cucumber contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids, phytosterols, phenolic acids, fatty acids, and cucurbitacins. Let's highlight the key players:
- Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C): A potent antioxidant that scavenges free radicals and supports collagen production.
- Beta Carotene: Another antioxidant that promotes skin health.
- Polysaccharides: These hydrate and soothe the skin.
- Vitamin K: Known for improving skin elasticity.
Skin Benefits of Cucumis Sativus Fruit Extract in Everything Green Tea Sleeping Mask
1. Antioxidant Powerhouse: The antioxidants in cucumber extract neutralize harmful free radicals, protecting your skin from environmental stressors like pollution and UV rays. Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and beta carotene play key roles in this defense mechanism.
2. Anti-Inflammatory Effects: Cucumber extract soothes irritated skin and reduces inflammation. Animal studies suggest that it inhibits pro-inflammatory enzymes, making it beneficial for conditions like acne or redness¹.
3. Hydration and Cooling: Thanks to its high-water content and polysaccharides, cucumber provides instant hydration and a cooling sensation. It's like a refreshing drink for your skin on a hot day.
When it comes to overnight skincare, hydrating sleep masks have become a beloved addition to our beauty routines. These masks work their magic while we catch our beauty rest, ensuring we wake up to plump, refreshed skin. One of the key ingredients in Profile Nourishment’s Everything Green Tea Sleeping Mask is Glycine Soja Protein, derived from soybeans.
What Is Glycine Soja Protein?
Glycine Soja Protein, also known as soybean protein, is extracted from soybeans (*Glycine max*). It's a versatile ingredient with multiple benefits for the skin.
Skin Benefits of Glycine Soja Protein in Everything Green Tea Sleeping Mask

2. Soothing and Calming: If you have sensitive or irritated skin, soybean protein comes to the rescue. Its anti-inflammatory properties soothe redness and promote overall skin comfort.
3. Strengthens the Skin Barrier: Soybean protein supports the skin's natural protective barrier. A strong barrier ensures better moisture retention and shields against environmental stressors.
