Ingredient of the Week: Organic Dandelion Extract

Scientific Name: Taraxacum Officinale

Benefits/History: Native to Eurasia and North America, the dandelion flower is considered a medicinal herb that has traditionally been used in natural remedies. Naturally rich in antioxidants and minerals such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, and vitamin A, Vitamin C, B and K, dandelion extract is also a common ingredient in many beauty products available on the market today. It’s rich in natural components that are crucial for achieving and maintaining healthy and vibrant skin. The dandelion flower has natural antifungal and germicidal properties that translate to cleansing and detoxifying benefits for the skin. 

The dandelion herb helps flush the skin of toxins, reduces skin inflammation, and improves skin’s overall complexion. Additionally, the overwhelming presence of antioxidants in the dandelion equips skin to fight skin cell-damaging free radicals, thus slowing down and guarding skin against the visible symptoms of aging. Dandelion’s natural antifungal qualities and high alkaline levels enable this ingredient to help fight off skin tissue infection when incorporated in skin care products. 

Skin Types:  As an antifungal agent, dandelion extract is ideal for oily/acne prone skin types. Dandelion’s natural detoxifying abilities enable it to help regulate proper secretion of hormones and help keep the skin cleansed and shielded against infection. The vitamin c component of Dandelion extract facilitates skin healing, helping to reduce the visibility of acne scars and inflammation caused by congested pores.
