The antioxidant and hydrating effect of Linden extract

Linden is among the traditional herbs widely used due to its many health benefits. It is known for its antimicrobial, expectorant, diuretic, and diaphoretic properties. It is also valued in skin care due to the content of a complex of biologically active substances with anti-inflammatory, hydrating, and pronounced antioxidant action with a toning effect. Its aroma is soothing and relaxing for the nervous system.

Linden trees (Tilia) are distributed in the temperate zone of the northern hemisphere – Europe, Asia, and the eastern part of North America. It reaches from 20 to 40 m in height, and its leaves are heart-shaped. Since ancient times, the Slavic peoples worshiped the linden as the tree of Lada, the goddess of harmony, joy, youth, beauty, marriage, and love.
