Arnica montana is also commonly called leopard's bane, wolf's bane, mountain tobacco, and mountain arnica.
The flowering plant, known for its bright yellow petals and daisy-like appearance, is native to Europe, Southern Russia, and parts of North America.
Historically, Arnica has been celebrated since the 1500s for its numerous uses in wellness and skin care applications.
Our Arnica Flower CO2 Total Extract is produced in Germany using CO2 supercritical extraction of dried Arnica montana flowers harvested in Romanian. The CO2 extraction process typically requires that the plant material is dried prior to extraction to produce the most superior extract. It contains all of the CO2-soluble lipophilic components present in arnica and up to 5% sesquiterpene lactones, triterpenediol esters plus trace amounts of essential oil, waxes and resins. After production, the Arnica Flower CO2 Extract Total is blended with 70% organic Sunflower Oil. It is then carefully packaged to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties of this beautiful CO2 Extract.
Arnica Flower CO2 Total Extract features a characteristic aroma, dark brown hue and is typically a thick liquid or semi-soft solid, depending on the room temperature.
