Our Mango Ginger Co2 Total is extracted in Germany from dried Curcuma amada rhizomes (roots) organically grown in India. The producer advises Mango Ginger Co2 is a beneficial analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and antioxidant, which stands to reason since it is botanically related to Turmeric although with a much different aroma that is warm, softly spicy and fruity. With a thick viscosity you will need to warm to fully liquefy. All sizes without euro-dropper for ease of warming and use. Consider adding transfer pipettes found here
Mango Ginger extract contains beta myrcene, alpha and beta pinene, beta caryophyllene, alpha zingiberene, ocimene and some triglycerides.
Mango Ginger is used in dietary supplements as an anti-inflammatory, antioxidative and antimicrobial agent and in topical dermatological products for allergic and inflammatory conditions.
Mango Ginger Co2 may be used in skin care but because this is a new extract to us we find it prudent to suggest low dilution and refrain use during pregnancy and while nursing, with young children and elderly persons.
For analgesic massage and topical pain management consider blending Mango Ginger with Plai Wild essential oil
in a base of Wasabi carrier oil
