Recognized for centuries for its many energizing, stimulating and aphrodisiac virtues, ginseng is a medicinal plant with fleshy roots, which has become one of the most precious treasures of traditional Chinese and Korean medicine.
From the Araliaceae family, the name “ginseng” comes from the Chinese language, derived from “gin”, which means “man” and “seng” which describes the fleshy roots. Together they form the name “ginseng” which means “root of man” because its shape is similar to that of a human being.
Generally associated with fighting fatigue, treating cardiovascular disease, improving concentration and increasing physical capacity, ginseng has entered the world of the beauty industry, becoming now the essential plant for anti-aging cosmetic formulas.
There are about ten varieties of ginseng grown around the world, the best known of which are:
Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer, known as red ginseng or Korean ginseng
Panax quinquefolius, known as American ginseng
Eleutherococcus senticosus, known as Siberian ginseng.

Suitable for all skin types, especially mature skin that needs a boost to maintain its elasticity, ginseng is a powerful vitality and firmness booster, with remarkable anti-inflammatory properties, thanks in particular to its content of trace elements and vitamins B and C, it will stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, while effectively treating the problems of redness, acne and pigment spots, offering the skin an exceptional anti-aging action, which makes it a true elixir of youth for the face.
In addition, Red Ginseng is also endowed with a composition of flavonoids, tannins, triterpenes, phosphorus and zinc, essential nutrients to improve the appearance of the skin, and strengthen its radiance, while protecting it against oxidative damage, one of the major causes of skin ageing.
