Anoint Ingredient Story: Schisandra Chinensis

Anoint Ingredient Story: Schisandra Chinensis

Schisandra is a wild-tree liana originating from Northeast China and Mongolia. In Traditional Apothecary, Schisandra is a miracle adaptogen, which means it helps the whole body. The fruit extract is very high in antioxidants, which (among other properties) helps the skin retain moisture. In Chinese Medicine, it is used to treat a stunning variety of other conditions and illnesses—from high cholesterol to radiation exposure.

Skin ages from changes in all of the three structural components of the skin: the epidermis, the dermis and the dermal-epidermal junction (DEJ). All three thin and flatten, and the skin substance loses its tonicity, resilience and elasticity. To effectively support skin cohesion, all three of these tissue zones should be targeted.

A high-quality extract from the fruits of Schisandra Chinensis stimulates the two important molecules in the DEJ tension regulators, collagen XVII and ladinin-1 proteins, and reinforces the cohesion between the dermis and epidermis. Used daily over 8 weeks, this extract improves firmness (+25%), resilience (+8%) and elasticity (+28%)*.

Rosebud Woman’s organic Schisandra extract is cleanly processed. The extraction process of our Schisandra is done through Supercritical CO2, a toxic chemical free method of getting the best of this plant without any solvents.
