Elderberry Oil Soluble is an antimicrobial efficacious, multi-functional natural alternative to the traditionally used preservatives in cosmetics and personal care applications. It is oil-soluble, and therefore, can be used in a variety of oil and oil-containing applications.
Elderberries are rich in a variety of phytonutrients that exhibit both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, such as caffeic acid, chlorogenic acid, ferulic acid, and quercetin. The fruit also contains anthocyanins, which have been shown to help boost the immune system. Antioxidants, like those found in elderberries, are excellent additions to skin care regimens as they provide protection from free radicals that contribute to cell damage, aging, and wrinkle formation. Bioflavonoids, which can also be found in elderberries, exhibit astringent properties that help tighten the skin and provide additional anti-wrinkle benefits. This unique superfruit is also an excellent source of undecylenic acid, an organic fatty acid that provides broad antimicrobial benefits, but is especially effective against fungal microorganisms.
Elderberry Oil Soluble is GMO-Free and no ethoxylation, irradiation, sulphonation, hydrogenation, or ethylene oxide is used in processing. There are no solvents used in its extraction and it contains no added preservatives or antioxidants.
Elderberry Oil Soluble is ECOCert/COSMOS approved and Whole Foods compliant.
