What is Turmeric?
Turmeric is an herbaceous perennial plant native to South Asia and has been used in that part of the world for thousands of years. Turmeric paste is traditionally used by women in South Asia as an antimicrobial and an anti-aging agent. Turmeric also figures prominently in the bridal beautification ceremonies of the Indian sub-continent. It is also used in the formulation of some sunscreens.
Turmeric's Benefits for Skin
Turmeric is well known for its anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and antibacterial properties and is presently being studied in cancer research. This bio-protectant neutralizes free radicals and ultra violet radiation (UV) damage. Gentle treatment of the turmeric removes the typical yellow color, so that a high percentage of turmeric can be incorporated into our products without staining the skin or compromising efficacy.
