Gromwell Root CO2 Total Extract is obtained by supercritical fluid extraction using carbon dioxide as the solvent. The resulting oil is then standardized by adding Organic Jojoba. The extract is paste-like in consistency at room temperature. Gromwell Root CO2 Total Extract has a deep red color with mild aroma. The content of alkannin, shikonin, acetylalkannin and acetylshikonin that naturally occurs in gromwell root imparts a red color to the oil. Gromwell CO2 can be used as a stable, natural deep color additive in cosmetics. It will tint products red and will lean to a blue magenta hue in alkaline conditions. The alkannin content of Gromwell Root CO2 Total Extract is healing, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and antioxidant. The oil is a useful and healing addition to anti-aging products, anti-inflammatory salves, suncare products, creams and other personal care products.

Comments: I believe this plants botanical name is Lithospermum Erythrorhizon, a herb possibly used in chinese medicine for skin hydration that appears to work. The color is very very magenta so when adding to a formula is best at 0.5 or less, otherwise one can stain the skin
