Needless to say, Dragon’s Blood is an ancient ingredient that has been around for centuries but has been getting more attention in mainstream skincare over the past few years. It is one of the newest kids on the block for anti-aging skincare products, so let’s find out more about this ingredient.
Where is Dragon’s Blood originated from?
Dragon’s Blood is actually a sap found in a tree called Croton Lechleri in the Amazon. The sap is made up of water, minerals and other nutrients which heal the trunk when it is exposed to damage, pests and diseases. Sap is essential for keeping the tree healthy and nourished.
How does Dragon’s Blood work?
Just like what sap does for a tree, it forms a protective layer on the trunk of the tree which is how it works on our skin – providing a protection barrier from the elements and to reduce skin irritation and redness while healing the skin’s complexion. This is why it is particularly beneficial for sensitive skin as it firms, soothes and protects not only for sensitive skin but also all skin types.
How is it used in beauty products?
You can find Dragon’s Blood in modern skincare products in a range of face creams, masks, gels and anti-aging serums for the face, neck and eyes. You can even find it in cleansers for the skin due to its ability to tame skin irritation and redness. It is especially great for anti-aging as it smooths, plumps and hydrates your skin to enhance your complexion leaving your skin looking youthful, healthy and beautiful.
