Ginger Extract for Relief of Tired legs
Posted: March 29, 2012
At In-Cosmetics in Barcelona, Sederma will present a ginger extract that alleviates leg discomfort and premature aging of the leg. Legance (INCI: Not Provided) is a vegetal extract of Zingiber zerumbet obtained by supercritical carbon dioxide that was created to address the needs of active women who often engage in walking, sitting, standing, traveling and heat.
The active inhibits the inflammatory phenomena leading to lipid storage and water retention to restore a more dynamic circulation in the legs and relieve the sensation of tiredness.
In vivo studies conducted by a company-appointed phlebologist on volunteers found the ginger extract to improve the appearance of legs and ankles, attenuated spider veins and relaxed legs. In addition, the mechanism of action was elucidated through in vitro tests.
