Ingredient Spotlight: Ginkgo Biloba Nut Extract
Do you know the history of the Ginkgo Biloba tree? Originating from Asia, it is renowned in many cultures for being a form of plant-based medicine. This translates beautifully into the skin care world as a treatment for providing protection and helping to heal common skin ailments. The type of extract most often seen in beauty and skin care products is derived from this tree's leaves, but utilizing patented machinery and methods, Amarte has a proprietary claim on the more nutrient-dense extract straight from the Ginkgo Biloba nut.
Appraised to be one of the most efficient cosmetic ingredients used in skin care, Gingko nut extract offers many benefits including skin soothing properties and hydration, contains potent anti-inflammatory ingredients, provides powerful antioxidant protection and the highest-level of anti-aging defense. It appears to aid fibroblast production of collagen and elastin and exerts protective effects on vascular walls. Its beneficial properties are attributed to various flavonoids, including quercetin, kaemphferol, and ginkgetin.
Topical skincare products containing Ginkgo Biloba help enhance moisture retention and softness, as well as smooth skin texture. Due to its healing power and known anti-inflammatory properties, this tree is often included in products such as facial creams to assist in healing acne, irritation, and redness in skin. The antioxidant protection delivers defense against free radicals and environmental pollutants, leading less skin damage over time and resulting in fewer lines, wrinkles, and less hyperpigmentation. Overall, Gingko Biloba skincare products can be highly advantageous in maintaining skin quality and radiance.
