Ginger root extract

It’s considered to be a soothing ingredient for irritated skin that can reduce redness, so it’s suggested for all skin types, but especially sensitive skin and those of us who have rosacea or other irritations.

The suggested usage is 1% to 5% in the cool down phase of a product at 45˚C (113˚F) or lower.
