Burdock - Cert. Organic
Burdock is a plant of the Old World, a biennial plant which grows up to 2m in height. The long roots reach up to a meter into the soil. It is a plant which grows wild throughout Britain, Europe and North America and is highly cultivated in Japan.
The oil is rich in phytosterols and essential fatty acids, including the rare long-chain EFAs, the nutrients which maintain a healthy skin and improve appearance. The latest research suggests that Burdock can fight against chronic inflammation leading to skin aging. According to recent discoveries made by scientists in Germany, Burdock counteracts the chronic inflammation in aging skin tissue and at the same time stimulates the synthesis of connective tissues such as collagen. Chronic inflammation is one of the primary causes of the skins aging.
