Ginkgo Leaf Powder (Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Powder)
The finely ground green powder made from ginkgo leaves has a regulating effect on the immune system and stimulates the skin's metabolism. This allows inflammation to heal faster and blemished or combination skin types to regain their natural balance. The clarifying and healing superfood mask by PURE SKIN FOOD is targeted towards blemished and combination skin types. It uses ginkgo leaf powder, in harmony with other nutritional and active ingredient-rich components, to achieve an even-looking, clear complexion.
Important organic active components of the beautiful, fan-shaped leaves:
- Flavonoids are botanical colouring agents. More than 30 flavonoids have been found in ginkgo thus far. They act as antioxidants and free radical scavengers.
- The terpene lactones, ginkgolide and bilobalide, are chemical structures that can only be found in the ginkgo tree. They reduce the grouping of blood plates which increases blood flow as a result. Improved microcirculation in the capillaries also increases the supply of nutrients to the skin as well as the removal of metabolic products.
Ginkgo leaf powder nourishes the skin on several levels - it:
- has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects,
- has a regulating effect on the skin's immune system,
- soothes allergic reactions of the skin,
- strengthens blood vessels and increases their elasticity,
- improves microcirculation and the metabolism of the skin,
- counteracts the formation of oedema.
The balancing and strengthening effect of ginkgo powder helps to achieve a clear and radiant complexion whilst increasing the skin's resistance to environmental influences over time.
Many scientific studies that deal with the biological activity of ginkgo also deal with its positive influence on symptoms of various types of dementia, such as memory deficits, concentration disorders, headaches or dizziness. Thus, ginkgo is also being studied as a source of active ingredients for treating Alzheimer's disease.
