Natural Preservative Alternative RadishScientific Name: {Raphanus sativus}
Common Name: {Radish extract}

Whether or not you like the pungent taste of radish, these root veggies have moisturizing skin benefits that make them a great additive to any skincare routine.

Their natural red color indicates they are packed with antioxidants, just like any dark fruit or vegetable. Additionally, they have unique toning and detoxifying properties.

Vitamins A, B, C, E, and K, and many essential cell-building minerals like zinc, iron, and calcium, are packed with skin-friendly properties.

The vitamins act as antioxidants, fending off free radicals, which will prematurely age the skin if not neutralized. They help in both the creation of new cells and in reducing inflammation.

Benefits of Using Radish Root

  • Moisturizing
  • Skin-Conditioning
  • Probiotic
  • Antioxidant
  • Protection of your homemade skincare products
  • Increase shelf-life

The skin faces contaminants every day. Whether from sun exposure, bacteria, or pollutants, it comes into contact with substances that cause premature aging.

Antioxidants help to protect the skin from free radicals caused by too much sun exposure. In fact, they contain natural antibacterial agents, which protect the skin from bacteria that cause blemishes.

Both bacteria and increased oil production are the leading cause of most acne. Using a product that contains radishes can help to prevent these blemishes.

Impurities can also cause discolorations and other imperfections, which break up a clear complexion. The radish's natural detoxifying properties help to draw out and even the appearance of these patches.

Also, radishes are recommended as a natural remedy for arthritis, asthma, and other chronic diseases caused by inflammation. In addition, radishes are a great way to soothe irritated skin for those who suffer from eczema and problematic skin.

Natural Skin-Conditioning and Moisturizing Properties

They contain a natural moisturizer and calming agent, which helps alleviate dry, cracked skin and reduce swelling. It will also minimize itchiness, either from dryness or insect bites.

The natural moisturizers in radishes can regulate the skin's oil production. Unfortunately, in the teenage years (and into adulthood, for some women), the skin produces far more oil than it needs for hydration —resulting in congested pores and a shiny appearance.

By providing a clean, natural source of moisture, radishes help to reduce this oiliness, cutting out pore-clogging ingredients and giving aging skin a fuller, plump appearance without shininess.

Because it can dry and help provide the moisture mature skin needs, a radish root product is excellent for any life stage.

Natural Alternative to Synthetic Preservatives

Radish Root benefits more than the face. It is also a natural alternative to synthetic preservatives. The next generation of skincare takes this unique ingredient to a whole new level.

Radish Root Ferment is used as a preservative and is the best natural alternative to synthetic preservatives.

The extract is a fermented microbe like Kimichi (fermented cabbage) with Leuconstoc and becomes a preservative.

Leucidal® Complete uses the fermenting of Radish Root plus a ferment of Cocos nucifera (Coconut) with Lactobacillus. In addition, this revolutionary new all-natural broad-spectrum preservative protects against bacteria, yeast, and mold.
