Abstract

Numerous studies have investigated the bioactive properties of compounds present in soybean (Glycine max) that may have beneficial effects on the health of human skin. Several such compounds have already been introduced into commercial cosmetic products to promote functional properties such as skin whitening, anti-wrinkle activity and skin hydration. However, a significantly greater understanding of the application of soybean ingredients in these types of products is needed before optimal benefits can be realized. In this review, we aim to summarize some of the biological properties of soybean constituents and the underlying mechanisms of action responsible for beneficial effects in skin. In addition, we will discuss future directions for studies that may help to expand the applications for soybean compounds.
