- Active Concepts
Ginseng is a well-known adaptogen, which is known to possess signficant anti-stress properties. Panax ginseng is considered to be the most potent.
ABS Ginseng Extract G (Active Concepts) is an extraction of Panax ginseng root sourced specifically from South Korea. In addition to its adaptogenic properties, panax ginseng contains 38 different antioxidants that are useful in anti-ageing and nourishing products. There are also phytochemicals in this plant that can help protect the skin from sun damage and extrinsic stressors. Other phytocompounds that occur naturally in Ginseng are often used to treat skin conditions such as dermatitis. Panax ginseng also contains 12 different fungicides, which makes Ginseng a natural alternative to harsh chemicals typically used as anti-fungal agents in cosmetics.
Efficacy testing has shown that ABS Ginseng Extract G provides potent antioxidant benefits, even at levels as low as 0.3%.
Using this glycerin-based extract in personal care and cosmetic applications will help formulators to capitalise on the marketing appeal of stress-fighting adaptogens, traditional Chinese medicine and the associated balancing health benefits of the Ginseng root.
