FSS Ginseng Extract SNO
Oil Soluble, Contains Sunflower Oil
For thousands of years,
ginseng--referred to as the "root of life"--has been used to treat a
myriad of heath conditions from stomachaches to poor circulation. Today it has
become an herbal ‘darling’ in the West for its adaptogenic qualities--that is,
its ability to help the body adapt to stress and ultimately achieve balance.
Depending on what your body needs,
ginseng can either arouse or relax. It's bidirectional--capable of sending one
of two contradictory signals to the body. For example, in a person with a low
white blood cell count, a bidirectional herb will stimulate the body to make
more. In a person with a high count, it will signal the body to make fewer. It
strives to bring the body into balance over time.
Ginseng is not just useful for
relaxing; as an ingredient in skin care products, it can also be used to
enhance microcirculation. This can help reduce fine lines and make the skin
firmer. Just as it's an adaptogen internally, it's also an adaptogen
externally, helping the skin adjust to stress.
Although research on its topical
applications is in the early stages, initial studies are finding that it
combats the free radicals caused by sun and aging, which are the ultimate
culprits behind damaged skin.
FSS Ginseng Extract SNO in personal care and cosmetic applications will
help formulators capitalize on the marketing appeal and associated health
benefits of ginseng.
