Botanical complexes

Herbal medicine and skincare can be effective, natural alternatives for treating a wide range of skin conditions. However, certain oils, extracts, and derivatives of medicinal plants have advanced effects when applied together.

Many phytochemicals in nature resemble chemical preservative compounds in structure and are all-natural alternatives. These classes of phytochemicals include essential oils containing eugenol, thymol, carvacrol, terpenoids, etc. When combined into complexes, some of these extracts are found to be effective against many spoilage microorganisms. In addition, combinations of these extracts are comparable in efficacy to conventionally used preservatives like parabens.

This section is for complex botanical ingredients containing multiple plant derivatives working synergically to nourish, heal, or protect skin most naturally. Most of the complexes improve effectiveness and potentiate action, enhancing each ingredient's significance.
