Soponaria officinalis (Soapwort) Extract
Soapwort has been traditionally used as a cleanser for sensitive skin, due to the natural saponin content in soapwort hot water infusions. Saponins are triterpene hydrocarbons, that are produced by plants for all kinds of reasons from UV-protection to defence against microbes and insects. Saponins give the hot water infusion the "sudsy" effect and is the reason it cleanses the skin so well.
We make our soapwort extract in-house and source our soapwort herb and root from a trusted herb grower in Ontario, Canada.
Soapwort makes up the natural saponin content in our InflorEssence Facial Cleanser.
