"For cosmetic use, Alchem offers Ruscogenin with all its inherent benefits"

Ruscogenin is a steroidal glycoside that is extracted from ruscus aculeatus (Butcher’s Broom). Ruscus aculeatus is a member of the Liliaceae family and is native to Mediterranean Europe and Africa. A variety of compounds have been isolated from ruscus aculeatus. The two primary saponin compounds are ruscogenin and neoruscogenin. The plant also contains numerous furanostanol and spirostanol saponins. In addition, a variety of flavonoids, a fatty acid mixture composed primarily of tetracosanoic acid and related compounds, chrysophanic acid, sitosterol, campesterol and stigmasterol, have been isolated from the roots.

Butcher’s broom is considered a major venotonic because of the synergic actions of its saponins and flavonoids. Ruscogenin exerts its venotonic actions through an adrenergic mechanism at two levels. On the one hand, it exerts direct agonistic effects on α-1 and α-2 post-synaptic adrenergic receptors on smooth cells of the blood-vessels walls. On the other hand, it exerts indirect effects by inducing noradrenalin release from pre-synaptic neuronal storing sites.

Due to its phlebotonic action, it is used as a blood-circulation activator, as an anti-fatigue (tired legs), anti-cellulite, anti-edema and anti-couperosis agent. It is suitable for body care emulsions, anti-cellulite products, legs care and heavy legs, hair care/loss prevention, firming products, anti-aging and skin care applications, after-sun products, and treatments for sensitive skin and redness.

The product addresses broad spectrum concerns on skin care and has the band width and capabilities to meet expectations. Regular use should exhibit demonstrable results.
