Product Details

INCI: Triglycerides of Caprylic/Capric Acid (and) Echinacea Purpurea Extract.

Echinacea was introduced to settlers across the plains when the USA was settled. The assistance this plant gave to people who were ill, feeling under the weather or had infections from bites has been documented. Echinacea is certainly a unique plant with an amazing history of what types of ailments were treated with the herb. Use where itchiness or irritation may be an issue.

Echinacea was used as a tisane (tea), infused into oil and used as an ointment, used as a topical wash or poultice. We are offering an oil soluble extract for use in hair care and skin care applications. If one is allergic to echinacea we do not recommend using the extract.

For hair care use up to 5%; for skin care in wash off applications use up to 5%, for skin care in leave on applications use up to 2%.

Extracts are easily added to bases or to raw mixtures. Treat as any other extract and add when the fragrance and/or preservative is being added.

Enjoy!
