Isoflavones from soy beans are used in functional soyfoods, they occur predominantly in form of the food products as a measure to alleviate hormone- polar, water-soluble glycosides, whereas fermented soy products contain mainly the biologically active phytohormones are well perceived and do not showthe negative side effects found in conventionaltherapies with hormones such as estrogens. Anumber of studies show that estrogens can slow downthe aging process of the skin in postmenopausalwomen. For this reason, isoflavones from soy beansare also very interesting compounds for cosmeticformulations. We succeeded in isolating very purefractions of isoflavones in the form of the activeaglycones suitable for cosmetic applications. Weherein report the use of this aglycone preparation inthe treatment of post menopause skin and discussfurther applications.
Phytoestrogens are plant derived compounds with

Epidemiological studies indicating associations between diet and disease states led to theinvestigation of a series of bioactive plant compounds,called phytochemicals. Some of these nonnutrientplant chemicals, such as phytoestrogens were shownto confer significant long-term health benefits.
Phytoestrogens are structurally and functionally similar to human estrogen (Fig. 1). There are two
types of phytoestrogens, the lignans and the isoflavones. Soybeans are especially rich inisoflavones. They contain the isoflavones genistein Fig. 2.

The saturated ER undergoes a conformational natural alternatives to human estrogens used in change that allows the receptor to interact with the replacement therapies. The fact that Asian women, DNA and to modulate the transcription of target that traditionally consume a lot of soy products, are less affected by the menopausal symptoms, such asosteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and breast Estrogen-related physiological disorders and their

Recent data show that is sometimes associated with severe adverse effects phytoestrogens have higher affinities to ERβ than to such as vaginal bleeding and in rare cases with the ERα. Phytoestrogens have been shown to protect development of breast and uterus cancer (Breckwoldt against osteoporosis and heart disease without1 9 9 5). Synthetic estrogen-like compounds, called affecting the uterus and breast (Kuiper et al. 1998, selective estrogen receptor modulators (e.g.
