INCI: Zingiber zerumbet extract

What is Zingiber zerumbet extract?

Zingiber zerumbet is a type of perennial herbaceous plant in the family Zingiberaceae. It has a leafy stem and cone-shaped flower head and is native to Asia and tropical Australia. The plant's rhizomes are used as a spice in many cuisines and also in herbal medicine.

Use & Benefits:

Antioxidant: Zingiber zerumbet root extract contains compounds like sesquiterpenes, terpenes, and other compounds that function as antioxidants. When exposed to environmental factors like radiation, pollution, and other toxic chemicals, our body produces free radicals. These free radicals break down collagen present in the skin and also hinder the skin repair process. Antioxidants replace themselves with those skin proteins and help reduce visible signs of aging.

Anti-inflammatory: Terpenes present in the extract are anti-inflammatory agents that stop the precursors of inflammation and prevent a flare-up on the skin. They soothe the skin, prevent itchiness, and calm it down.

Skin conditioning agent: Zingiber zerumbet root extract is a skin conditioning agent that helps retain moisture in the skin and hair and keep them conditioned. Certain chemical structures present in the extract attach water molecules onto them and carry them along when applied to the skin. They then make these water molecules available for skin utilization.

Used in skin and hair care products: Zingiber zerumbet root extract is used in the formulations of shampoos, conditioners, and other skin and hair care products.
