Radish Root

EWG Rating
Natural Preservative Alternative Radish

Scientific Name: {Raphanus sativus}
Common Name: {Radish extract}

Whether or not you like the pungent taste of the radish, these root veggies have some skin benefits that make them a great additive to any skincare routine. Their natural red color indicates that they are packed with antioxidants, just like any dark-colored fruit or vegetable. Additionally, they have unique toning and detoxifying properties.

Vitamins A, B, C, E, and K, along with 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 they are not neutralized. They are also helpful in the creation of new cells and in reducing inflammation.

The skin faces contaminants every day. Whether from sun exposure, bacteria, or pollutants, it comes into contact with substances that can cause premature aging. The antioxidants help to protect skin from free radicals caused by too much sun exposure.

They also contain natural antibacterial agents, which protect skin from bacteria that would cause blemishes. Bacteria is the leading cause of most acne, along with increased oil production. 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.

Radishes are recommended as a natural remedy for arthritis and asthma, and other chronic diseases caused by inflammation. For those who suffer from eczema and acne, radishes are a great way to soothe irritated skin. They contain a natural moisturizer and calming agent, which helps alleviate dry, cracked skin and reduce swelling. It will also reduce itchiness, either from dryness or insect bites.

The natural moisturizers in radishes can regulate the skin’s oil production. In the teenage years (and into adulthood, for some women), the skin produces far more oil than it needs for hydrations — the results in acne and a shiny appearance.

By providing a clean, natural source of moisture, radishes help to reduce this oiliness, cutting out acne and giving aging skin a fuller, plump appearance without shininess. Because it can combat acne and help provide the moisture mature skin needs, a product containing radish root is excellent for any life stage.

Natural Alternative to Synthetic Preservatives

Radish Root is not just used to benefit 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 is being used as a preservative and is the best natural alternative to synthetic preservatives. The extract is fermented microbe just like they do with Kimichi (fermented cabbage) and becomes a preservative.
