Photoprotection by Topical Trifolium Pratense — Red Clover

Photoprotection by Topical Trifolium Pratense — Red Clover

Red clover (Trifolium Pratense) contains four primary isoflavones (daidzein, biochanin-A, formonetin and genistein) which are also present in soybeans.

Genistin has received the most attention as a chemopreventive agent; however, its other components have recently been tested for their photochemoprotective effects.

Red clover compounds including genistein and the metabolites equol, isoequol and the related derivative dehydroequol appear to have powerful potential to reduce the inflammatory edema reaction and the suppression of contact hypersensitivity induced by moderate doses of UV (sun) exposure.

A topically applied isoflavone derivative from red clover has been show to decrease minimally erythemal solar simulated UVR in hairless mice.

Trifolium Pratense can reduce erythema-associated edema, induce ornithine decarboxylase and suppress of contact hypersensitivity.

In mice irradiated chronically (50 days), daily application of topical Red Clover has reduced photocarcinogenesis significantly and appears to be actively protective during both the initiation phase and the later promotion phase of tumor induction.

These results show promise; however, cell culture and human studies are needed in order to confirm the photochemoprotective effects of red clover isoflavones.

You can review the skin care products which contain red clover or soy isoflavones.
