What is ginseng?
Ginseng - a carrot like log with many branches stemming from its side. That’s the appearance that comes to our minds whenever we hear the word ginseng! Contrary to its foreign appearance, ginseng is no stranger to many people today. In fact, it is a prized traditional herb used to treat a range of health issues.
Ginseng is a prominent ingredient in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is often recommended to those who suffer from exhaustion and fatigue as it is known to be effective in increasing energy. Ginseng also improves the immune system, helping to enhance resistance against infections and illnesses.
The most common types of ginseng used today are the Asian and American ginseng. The Asian ginseng is largely referred to as the Panax Ginseng while the American ginseng is referred to as the Panax Quinquefolius. Both types possess therapeutic potentials hence their widespread use in medicine.
Why is ginseng used in haircare products?
With advancements in research and development, the personal care industry has ventured into the realm of ginseng as an ingredient for haircare products.
Indeed, besides supplements and herbal medicine, ginseng is also an amazing component for haircare. Oftentimes, stress is found to be the root cause of hair loss. In this situation, ginseng steps in as an effective remedy given its stress-relieving abilities. Ginseng is also known to improve blood circulation, aiding in hair growth and promoting stronger hair.
Amongst the different types of ginseng, the Panax Ginseng Root is exceptionally good for hair care as it contains a key ingredient, Saponin. Saponin encourages hair growth by inhibiting an enzyme that is related to hair loss. It also has great cleansing abilities, leaving the hair feeling thicker and smoother after wash. Furthermore, Panax Ginseng is said to stimulate the generation of dermal cells on the scalp which strengthens the hair roots to prevent hair breakage and thinning in the future.
