[PACKAGING INFORMATION]

Elderberry Extract is an efficacious, multi-functional natural alternative to the traditionally used anti-microbial preservatives used in cosmetics and personal care applications. Elderberries are small, dark purple berries that grow on leafy shrubs. The shrubs produce small, white, fragrant flowers that develop into the deeply colored berries.

Elderberries have been traditionally used in herbal medicine and as natural flavorings for jams, cordials and other foods and beverages. The superfruit trend is one of the largest growing segments in the cosmetics industry. These fruits are recognized not only for their health benefits, but also for their unique marketing appeal. Elderberry certainly fits the description of a superfruit. Two common varieties of Sambucus are the American Elder (S. Canadensis) and the European Elder (S. nigra), which has been naturalized to America. These two are often discussed simultaneously in the literature given that they have several components in common and therefore provide similar benefits.


REPORTED BENEFITS AND USES

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. They are particularly effective against fungal microorganisms such as C. albicans and A. brasiliensis.

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. Bioflavoinoids, 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.
