What is Cornus extract?

Cornus extract is an extract of the fruit of plant Cornus officinalis. Fruits are also known as dogwood berries, and they are native to Japan and China.

Apart from iridoid glycosides, it also contains oleanolic acid and ursolic acid.

The iridoid glycosides can also help skin lose the dead skin cell layer. They clear out skin by getting rid of those dead skin cells. Being antioxidants, they fight with free radicals produced by environmental oxidative stress and help protect skin with ongoing damage caused by them. Which in turn can result in the skin with improved aging-related issues like fine lines or wrinkles, Iridoid glycosides when interacted with amino acid can produce colored complexes, this quality is particularly useful in hair color preparation. It is believed, and studies are being conducted on its whitening effect on the skin when iridoid glycosides are being used.
