Zinc salt is a neutral salt of citric acid. It is used as a mineral source in food, food supplements and in cosmetics (e. g. toothpaste) and has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. (Picture credits: ©Sergey Jarochkin/123rf.com)
Zinc is connected to pyrrolidone carboxylic acid (natural moisturizer of the skin). The salt binds water and thus reduces transepidermal water loss. Zinc salt has antimicrobial and sebum regulating properties and is used in case of impure skin as well as oily skin and scalp (dandruff). Furthermore it has the feature to form odourless salts together with the fatty acids of the sweat and thus reduces body odours.
Betula Alba Leaf
Birch can be found in large parts of the Northern hemisphere as for example in Europe, North America and Asia. Traditionally birch is used in the treatment of skin diseases like eczemas and in metabolic stimulation (e. g. of the scalp).
Citrus Limon Peel Oil
