Burdock extract

Burdock (Arctium lappa)

Burdock officially called Arctium lappa is considered a healthy and nutritive food in China. Arctium lappa used as a medicinal herb in Europe, North America, and Asia for centuries.

Almost all parts of the burdock - roots, seeds, and leaves have been used in oriental medicine.  There are active ingredients in the roots that detoxify dermal cells and increase blood flow to the skin surface, improving the texture and curing conditions like irritation or eczema. Burdock root also contains antioxidants protecting cell membranes from oxidative stress.

Seeds comprise active compounds with anti-inflammatory properties. The active compounds from Arctium lappa leaf extract can restrain the growth of harmful micro-organisms on the surface of the skin. However, burdock extract may cause an allergy including contact dermatitis and other allergic/inflammatory responses, so always test the product containing it on a small area before applying the first time.
