INCI: Saponaria officinalis leaf extract/ Saponaria officinalis root extract

What is Saponaria officinalis leaf extract/ Saponaria officinalis root extract?

Saponaria officinalis extract is obtained from the plant Saponaria officinalis, also known as soapwort or soapweed. The name Saponaria is derived from the Latin word 'sapo', which means soap. It is a perennial flowering plant cultivated throughout Europe, Asia, Siberia, and North America. The extract is obtained from the leaves and roots of the plant. Saponarioside is the active constituent responsible for its cleansing action.

Use & Benefits:

Cleansing: The saponins in Saponaria officinalis extract have cleansing properties similar to a surface-active agent or detergent. The oil-loving part attaches to dirt present on the skin or hair and is then washed away with water with the water-loving part. So, it is used to keep the skin clean and free of dirt particles and microbes.

Antimicrobial: The extract's antimicrobial properties protect the skin from infections like acne.

Skin conditioning: Saponaria officinalis extract forms a protective layer on the surface of the skin, retains moisture, and makes it appear smooth and soft. It conditions the skin and keeps it hydrated.

Versatility: Saponaria officinalis extract is used in formulations of face and body cleansers, shampoos, and other skin and hair care products.
