What is Kigelia africana fruit extract / Kigelia africana leaf extract?

Kigelia africana is an African medium-sized tree. It is also known as sausage tree because of the shape of the fruits of the tree. The liquid or extract obtained from the tree is limpid liquid, dark brown to brown with a characteristic odor. It contains steroidal saponins and flavonoids- luteolin and quercetin, naphthoquinones, iridoids, fats, terpenes, and phenolic compounds.

Use & Benefits:

It contains estrogen-like compounds that help increase skin metabolism, hyaluronic acid, and other skin protein synthesis; thus, it helps to reinstate the skin structure and improve overall quality and appearance of skin. It works as an antiaging agent in this manner, thereby reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It is also used in breast firming and uplifting creams and lotions. It is used in skincare, haircare, and body care products as well.
