The leaf extract has multiple ingredients those are mentioned as phenolics, act as antioxidants. Moreover, vitamins also play a similar role. Antioxidants are helpers who fight any ongoing damage or future damage regarding reaction with oxygen. It usually helps in two ways; first considering product aspect, when product is exposed to oxygen, over a period of time, and in the absence of antioxidant, the product may undergo oxidation i.e. change in color or some precipitation or haze. So, antioxidant saves the product and provides more stability. Secondly, it’s saponin complex hederacoside C, B, and alpha hederine are proven effective against cellulitis.
