INCI Name: Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil (and) Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract
Ginkgo biloba also known as Maidenhair Tree is one of the oldest trees in existence dating back as far as 150 million years ago. 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.
Ginkgo biloba is also a common additive in cosmetic formulations since it provides free radical scavenging and anti-inflammatory effects in anti-aging and oily skin treatment preparations. The plant contains 49 different antioxidants and is often used in age defying and anti-wrinkle creams. Ginkgo biloba has been observed to stimulate peripheral blood flow to the skin and the antioxidants inhibit free radicals thus improving the condition of skin. As an additive in facial treatments the extract is attributed with providing firming qualities while revitalizing and stimulating the skin. It is also excellent in hair tonics and shampoos, and also as a skin balancer in lotions, masks, and moisturizing creams. Ginkgo biloba extract will smooth hair and imparts a natural healthy looking shine to damaged hair. Ginkgo Biloba Extract is an all-natural product that can be used in a wide variety of applications without adding a harsh chemical quality to final products.
