FSS Cayenne Extract G
Preserved with Leucidal Liquid; Contains Glycerin
Cayenne or Capsicum takes its name from the Greek, 'to bite,' a reference to the hot pungent properties of the fruits and seeds. The plant was described by Linnaeus as C. frutescens proper. Introduced from India into Britain in 1548, the plant was already being cultivated. It appeared in 1771 in Miller's Garden Dictionary. The fruits contain 0.1 - 1.5% capsaicin a substance which stimulates the circulation and alters temperature regulation. Applied topically capsaicin desensitizes nerve endings and makes a good local anesthetic. The seed contains capsicidins, which are thought to have antibiotic properties.

One of the most important benefits of Cayenne Pepper Extract is that it can provide healthy looking skin. The cayenne pepper stimulates the blood flow to the skin, which enables oxygen and necessary nutrients to reach the cells, which makes the skin healthier. FSS Cayenne Extract G is useful in a variety of cosmetic and cosmeceutical products, which range from anti-aging creams and skin clarifiers to soothing warming lotions and gels. Cayenne Extract is also found in Antidandruff, Antifungal, Antimicrobial, Cosmetic Astringent, Hair Conditioning, Skin Conditioning, Skin Protectant applications.
