Ginger root is perhaps one of the best know botanicals since ancient times.  Originally from southeast Asia, traders spread it to many areas as early as 2000 years ago. It has been used by many cultures for a myriad of treatments, from cleaning and healing of cuts and wounds to the well know treatments for nausea and immune boosting.

But modern research has shown it to be a fantastic treatment in skin care as it has potent antioxidant activity and excellent anti-aging properties due to its ability to almost totally inhibit collagen degradation by collagenase enzyme inhibition. By allowing for the maintenance of protein levels in the skin we get firmer, tighter skin.

It has strong anti-inflammatory properties which make it great for soothing dry, itchy, inflamed or irritated skin.  It increases the circulation in the skin and aids in carrying essential nutrients, which helps to detoxify and promote overall healthier skin.

Like all of our extracts, our gingerroot is extracted using non-GMO vegetable glycerine and grown and produced without the use of chemicals or pesticides.
