The use of Ginseng in Asian cosmetics and its benefits on the skin ?

You have certainly heard of Ginseng or perhaps consumed it as a drink?

What is Ginseng and where does it come from?

Ginseng (Panax Ginseng), which is the best known, is a root found mainly in Korea. It grows in particular places and conditions, such as undergrowth, in slightly acidic soil. It must reach the age of 6 years before being consumed, because it is from this age that it acquires its full properties.

A wild Ginseng can be sold for astronomical sums depending on its age, as it is highly prized for its properties and benefits on the immune system.

Let's discover its numerous benefits for the body and the skin:

Consumed as a drink, it is known to boost energy, as intellectual, general and physical fatigue. It is the root that is consumed. We generally find drinks with the whole root inside the bottle.

Ginseng is suitable for sportsmen as a preventive drink, it improves and boosts their brain functions, as well as endurance, strengthens the immune system and stimulates the muscles.

Used in the formulation of cosmetics, it actively contributes to cell rigidity.

It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, stimulates collagen production, and promotes skin elasticity.

It is also recognized in the treatment of atopic dermatitis thanks to its anti-inflammatory effects.

It is the ginsenosides that give Ginseng its many natural properties.

  • For sensitive skin, it is advisable to apply a small amount the first few weeks to give your skin time to get used to it, then increase the amount.
