Our Formulator's Perspective - Relief for Sensitive Skin
This week, we are presenting an interesting article shared by our Chemist, Kelly Kropf.
In less than a month with our team she is fitting right in, already contributing to the blog and of course, sharing her own “formulator’s perspective.”
INCI Name: Sorghum Bicolor Bran Extract (and) Glycerin (and) Water
Company: Active Organics
ActiGuard™ S is a glycerin and water extract of Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor), which is rich in polyphenolic phytochemicals. It is the first product in Active Organics newest line of botanical actives, designed around extracts of the ancient grain. The flavonoids, condensed tannis, and phenolic compounds extracted from the bran portion of this ancient grain will result in substantial anti-inflammatory and anti-irritation proprieties. It is perfect for use in sensitive skin products.
