Anti-ageing creams from jasmine rice extract

Thailand - More than just a food staple, it seems like the humble rice grain can be a part of your beauty arsenal too. 

Thai scientists recently announced that they have produced six antiwrinkle creams from extracts of jasmine rice.

Dr Aranya Manosoi, who conducted the research with Dr Jeeradej Manosoi and ThaiChina Flavours and Fragrances Industry, told The Nation that it took them 18 months to get extracts from jasmine rice, Strain 105, which have then been used on 30 volunteers with promising results.

She said: "The results are good. The elasticity of their skin has increased significantly after applying the product on their arms twice a day for two consecutive months".
