What does this mean?

Inci:Glycerin, Symphytum officinale Leaf Extract, Aqua, Citric Acid

Organic comfrey leaves combined with glycerin to extract the allantoin. This process also makes the glycerine less sticky.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Comfrey Glycerol Extract is a beige/yellow to dark brown, clear liquid.

The depth of colour depends on how much you use. It has a faint herbal aroma. By extracting comfrey leaves into glycerine, you get both the benefit of the comfrey as well as the benefit of the glycerine which is a great humectant. Consider this a good 2-in-1 product.

It is sterilised by filtration, so no preservative is necessary to keep the extract, but you should still add a preservative to the products you are making when using it in formulations.

The individual materials that make up Comfrey Glycerol Extract are listed on the Cosmetic Ingredient Database (Cosing) here.

We only use comfrey leaf in the extract, as comfrey root is not appropriate. Avoid during pregnancy and whilst breastfeeding. It is not recommended to use any comfrey products on babies and young children. Avoid comfrey products if you have or have had liver problems.

HOW TO USE IT

Use 3% to 6% in water based products. It cannot be used in oil only formulations.
 
Skin Care
High carbohydrate content plants like comfrey are very soothing to the skin. It has moisture retaining properties which are boosted by the glycerin.
 
Ideal to use in foot creams due to its moisturising and soothing abilities.
 
An excellent ingredient to add to anti wrinkle formulations in masks, serums, creams, gels and lotions.
 
Very hydrating to add to after sun products where it will keep the skin moisturised.

Add to soothing gels and lotions, and is also suitable for acne-prone skin.
 
It is a good replacement for glycerin in creams and lotions for sensitive skin as it has the same moisturising properties.
 
As it is water soluble, it is a great addition to toners and facial spritzes, especially for sensitive skin.
 
Ideal in an after-shave spray.
 
Hair Care
