Ginger Root Extract
Ginger Root Extract, one of the best known botanicals since ancient times, has excellent anti-aging properties due to its ability to almost totally inhibit collagen degradation by collagenase enzyme inhibition. It allows the maintenance of protein levels in the dermis and skin flexibility. It also acts as an anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory. Ginger Root Extract is used in formulations for skin and hair products, including refirming, massage and anti-dandruff preparations.
Our Ginger Root Extract is a standardized extract of the roots of Zingiber Officinate obtained from ginger grown without pesticides or other chemicals in a 50:50 medium of glycerin and water.
The raw material is certified by ECOCERT Greenlife according to the COSMOS Standard.
This is a cosmetic raw material and is meant for external use only in cosmetic formulations. As with all of our materials, it should not be taken internally.
