Found in the forests of East Asia (Mandchouria, Korea) more than 5000 years ago, that perennial herbaceous plant, known all over the world with its anthropomorphic root (ginseng means « man-root » in classical Chinese), would have many healing properties, according to Asian traditional medecines. It grows widly in the shadow, under trees; but its culture, started in the end of Middle Age in Korea, demands a lot of care and time: it takes 6 to 8 years before getting rhizomes of good quality. Indeed, it contains many components (ginsenoids, phenols,…), that may have tonifying, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant effects, it would reduce cholesterol.
Because, like any part of the body, skin is sometimes tired, it is necessary to help it to regain its energyskin is sometimes. For a skin more beautiful, that feels an impression of well being.
Improves skin metabolism. Helps to stimulate cell regeneration and all cell functions in the epidermis.
Limits the creation of free radicals due to the physiological processes and free radicals induced by UVB.
• INCI name of cells: panax ginseng leaf cell extract
• Aspect: liquid
• Form: cells (20%) in glycerin or sunflower oil (80%)
• Concentration: starting at 0.5%
Balancing Energy Asian ginseng relaunches cell energy in epidermis by increasing cell energetic production, that is created through respiration in cell mitochondriae.It contributes to boost chemical reactions (oxidations), that supply ATP, the source of elemental energy for cells, by maintaining the global energetic balance (energetical homeostasia), meaning that it keeps a balance between degradation processes (catabolism) and synthesis processes (anabolism). Those processes are inclined to unbalance with ageing. Besides, it minimizes the production of free radicals, that lead to cell desorders in short and long term: they can limit cell activity.
Thanks to those actions, skin cells can get back a level of activity enough to fill their functions, including those delayed by ageing.
