named after the pagan goddess of beauty - aphrodite, substances derived from a variety of herbs, spices and foods contain flavonoid components which were believed to help increase sensuality when ingested.
ginseng, cica grass and gingko biloba were specifically chosen for their skin replenishing flavonoids, a class of plant-derived phytochemicals that contain a high concentration of antioxidants that help neutralise free-radicals and maintain the skin’s quality due to their reparative and skin soothing actions.
discover why we’ve formulated our bang gang formula:aphrodisia range with these three high-quality, flavonoid-rich phyto compounds that make up our aphrodisia technology and why they are so desirable for arousing beautiful skin when applied topically.
ginseng has been gaining traction lately with good cause, before kale or açai berry, ginseng was the original superfood and has long been considered an aphrodisiac due to its ability to increase circulation and boost the immune system. popular in asian traditional medicine, ginseng is a root that is harvested after growing for six years.
ginseng, a natural skin balancer, can help arouse circulation of your skin's blood vessels, in turn amping up the synthesis of collagen. ginsengs active factors like ginsenosides and saponin glycosides are brilliant in helping to brighten and revitalise your complexion as they help to quell redness and puffiness to save your skin from and slow down the ageing process.
cica grass extract is a medicinal plant, also known as centella asiatica, grown primarily in asia. this herb dates back hundreds of years and has been traditionally used as an anti-inflammatory agent to treat wounds, burns, and eczema.
when it comes to treating your skin, cica grass is a must-have ingredient due to high concentrations of antioxidant compounds - polyphenols and flavonoids - its soothing properties. this ingredient also contains several active compounds, including madecassoside, madecassic acid, and asiatic acid; all promoting healing.
overall, cica grass extract contains properties that help hydrate compromised skin, revitalise the skin’s protective barrier, and reduce solar damage.
gingko biloba leaf extract
the third powerhouse ingredient that we will cover is gingko biloba leaf extract. this plant, otherwise referred to as maidenhair tree leaf, is a medicinal herb native to china. highly concentrated with flavonoids and terpenoids, such as ginkgolides and bilobalides, gingko biloba leaf extract is one of the most advantageous cosmetic ingredients for skin care.
similar to the other ingredients that we have covered, gingko biloba leaf is known to calm irritated skin and contains vitamin a, which promotes skin renewal, vitamin c, which helps to protect and brighten the skin, and vitamin e, which contains anti-inflammatory properties. gingko biloba leaf is great complexion booster as it's used as an anti-inflammatory agent to soothe the skin.
