The healing power of Lilac extract in skin care

One of the most fragrant flower symbols of spring – Lilac, is not only beautiful and fragrant but also medicinal. The ornamental deciduous shrub is from the Olive family (Oleaceae). It originates from the Middle East and Eastern Europe and in particular from the Balkan Peninsula. Lilac is extremely hardy and able to survive without much care, mostly thanks to its high content of antimicrobial substances that protect the plant from pests. This same property is just one of the many amazing powers that Lilac possesses.

The supercritical CO2 extract of Lilac (syringa vulgaris extract) in action

Thanks to the gentlest, innovative method of extracting the beneficial ingredients from the plants, CO2 extract from Bulgarian Lilac contains all the aromatic healing ingredients of the plant. Supercritical extraction guarantees exceptional purity and an all-natural composition that is easily and quickly absorbed by the skin. The extraction method preserves the pure authentic lilac aroma, which has a balancing effect and calms the nervous system.

How Lilac extract helps reduce skin inflammation

Microbes are capable of overstimulating the sebaceous glands, causing acne and skin irritations. The powerful antimicrobial effect of CO2 Lilac extract helps to reduce the bacteria that cause local inflammation and infection. Along with its refreshing and firming properties, it is a powerful skin toner that tightens and reduces sagging. Lilac’s secret lies in a compound known as verbascoside. A powerful antioxidant with a strong anti-inflammatory effect, which, according to studies, copes with the treatment of atypical dermatitis and other skin diseases. Verbascoside is able to stimulate cell activity, support their recovery from oxidative damage, and support cell regeneration. The protective abilities of Lilac against inflammation and external pests are logically related to this substance, which can also accelerate the wound healing process.

Among the active ingredients of CO2 Lilac extract is squalene, which is a natural component of the sebum of the skin and has a softening, soothing, and healing effect.

In addition to helping inflamed and reddened skin, Lilac extract is able to suppress the melanogenesis process that causes age spots and hyperpigmentation. By stimulating cell growth, it actively fights against the causes of skin aging.

Lilac extract also contains lilac linalool. It is a plant-based terpene alcohol with antimicrobial action while reducing stress and calming. Linalool signals the nervous system to produce lower levels of cortisol, the stress hormone that can make you feel depressed and exhausted. It also contains Vitamin C, trace elements, phytohormones, antioxidants and other beneficial ingredients and astringent compounds, which in combination contribute to glowing, healthy skin.
