Occupying a unique biological niche between ferns and trees, the leaves of the Ginkgo tree have been used in medicinal formulations for more than five thousand years. Multi-functional in application, our Ginkgo extract contains two groups of compounds, Flavonoids and terpenes, which indicate several desirable properties, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, vessel protection, and cell regeneration. Demonstrated reductions in allergic reactions and general inflammatory responses due to PAF antagonistic activity make the terpenes (Ginkgolides) contained in this extract an attractive component group of compounds for use in promotion of anti-cellulite, anti-aging, photo-protection, re-epithelizing and other cosmetic advantages in formulation.
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.
