We’re so used to reading familiar ingredients on our regular skin product labels that when Ginseng and Ginkgo Biloba started showing up, our beauty antennas perked up. Exotic ingredients are always a crowd puller—from Jeju volcanic clay to snail slime, so these very Asian sounding ones had us intrigued.
Did you know the root of the Ginseng plant has been widely used for centuries as an energy booster, memory enhancer and weight loss supplement? Today, Ginseng is the equivalent of a double shot vanilla latte for your skin, reducing puffiness, brightening under-eye circles, preventing wrinkles, healing acne, calming overactive oil glands and boosting hair growth.
Meanwhile, Ginkgo Biloba or the Silver Apricot Tree is also hailed as the Tree of Youth. In ancient China the seeds of this holy tree were used to treat asthma, bladder issues, and a cough remedy. One of the few trees to survive the Hiroshima atom bomb explosion in Japan, it was hailed as the Tree of Hope. And we’re hopeful that it will transform skin thanks to its 40 different phytochemicals that enhance microcirculation, moisturise and tighten skin, reduce inflammation and sun protect.
