INCI: Triglycerides of Caprylic/Capric Acid (and) Althea Officinalis (Marshmallow) Leaf Extract
What is a pelican's favorite dessert? Marsh-mallows! All jokes and laughter aside, the marshmallow herb has a long history!
Our new Marshmallow Leaf Extract is perfect for treating the skin to some TLC. Just like the root, marshmallow leaves are claimed to be emollient, conditioning, and anti-inflammatory. Who wouldn't love how this extract pampers the skin?
Give your creams and lotions a little extra skin-soothing rejuvenation when using the Marshmallow Leaves Extract. You can also use this extract in serums, hair care, lip care, and after-sun skincare. I think you will adore this extract just as much as we do!
Usage rates for this oil-soluble extract are generally 0.1 to 10%. We use up to 1% in the liquid bases like shampoo and conditioner, and 2 to 4 % in massage oils. Under extreme conditions, we can see the usage as high as 10%, but only for indulgent personal care.
