hyllanthus Emblica (Amla) Fruit Extract
Also known as Indian Gooseberry, is native to India and has been used for centuries for its myriad health benefits in addition to skin and hair care. It is exceptionally high in vitamin C, but its overall antioxidant strength is derived from its high density of tannins and polyphenols which enable protection from environmental stressors. Amla extract is also high in vitamin A and amino acids, alanine, lysine, proline, aspartic acid, and glutamic acid. In addition to having anti-inflammatory properties, studies show it is antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral. It can firm and brighten as it reduces the appearance of scars. It also regulates melanin production in the skin, reducing age spots and preventing damage. Additionally amla extract can strengthen and stimulate hair growth and improve the overall appearance of hair.
