Ratanhia (Krameria Triandra) Root Extract

Commonly referred to as Ratanhia and literally meaning “the plant creeping on the floor,” this shrub is native to the Andes Mountains in Bolivia and Peru. The plant is about knee high, with branches sweeping out across the ground. Strong roots, hairy silver leaves and red flowers that bloom during the rainy season make up this plant. The roots of the Ratanhia have historically been used by the natives of Bolivia and Peru to care for their teeth and strengthen their gums. High in tannins, the roots contain astringent and toning properties, easing inflammation, redness and infection. The root extract also tightens fine veins and tissues.

Xanthan Gum

This fermented byproduct of the microorganism, Xanthomonas Campestris, yields a fibrous gel similar to cellulose. It is very stable under a wide range of temperatures and pH levels. This gum agent serves as a stabilizer and emulsifier, as well as a foam enhancer and thickener.

Limonene

Fragrance (Parfum) from natural essential oils. Limonene is a naturally occurring component of essential oils, such as Lemon Oil, Orange Oil, Grapefruit Oil, Bergamot Oil, Fennel Oil and Lavender Oil.
