BENEFITS FOR SKIN AND HAIR
For use in cosmetics and care products, the anti-inflammatory action is particularly an advantage, in which the oleanolic acid contained in GLOSSY PRIVET is responsible. This involves a naturally occurring triterpenoid, which has many other promising effects. In addition, it has anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory effects, which contribute to soothing skin irritations and dermatitis. The antioxidant effect of the ole- anolic acid has the additional effect of combating free radicals. The skin-caring, soothing properties of the substances are also beneficial for the hair quality.
