Standardization: 10:1 extract
Gooseberry Liquid Extract – Standardized is a liquid blend of Gooseberry extract and Propanediol produced through a unique manufacturing technology.
Obtained from the fruit of the Ribes reclinatum Linn tree, Gooseberry Liquid Extract is a powerful source of Vitamin C and offers an antioxidant rich composition that can be used in rejuvenating formulations to help maintain firm looking skin. Gentle cleansing properties of Gooseberry Liquid Extract leave the skin feeling refreshed and revitalized for a bright, rejuvenated look. Gooseberry extract is also highly popular in hair care products to cleanse the scalp and help strengthen the hair.
With a plant-based origin, Propanediol is a biodegradable and petrochemical-free solvent that is NPA approved, making it an excellent corn sugar-derived alternative to petroleum-based Glycols for hair- and skincare formulations. It offers benefits and functionalities that include improved emollience, enhanced viscosity, non-irritating properties, exceptional sensory characteristics, clarity, and anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, among many more.
The characteristic color of this botanical extract imbues natural cosmetic formulations with its innate hue. This means that the product colors that were formerly possible to obtain only through the use of artificial and often objectionable constituents can now be achieved through plant-based ingredients that impart not only their beneficial, skin health-enhancing properties but also their individual natural colors. It is strongly recommended that small batch trials be conducted to determine the dosage required to achieve the desired shade imbued by the extract.
The original color of Gooseberry Liquid Extract – Standardized is brown to dark brown; however, there is a possibility of this color changing, depending on the formulation to which it is added.
Recommended Usage Level: 1-3% in skincare products.
