Genistein

Genistein is an isoflavone derived from soybeans with the capacity to inhibit UV-induced oxidative DNA damage.[55] Genistein, either topically applied or orally supplemented, was shown to effectively protect human skin against UVB-induced skin photodamage.[56,57] It is included in various products such as facial moisturizers, sunscreens, and other skin care formulations that claim to provide anti-aging effects.
