Curcuma Xanthorrhiza CO2 Extract

Curcuma Xanthorrhiza grows in Southeast Asia and is a member of the Zingiberaceae (ginger family). This beautiful plant is sometimes referred to as Javanese Turmeric or temu lawak. The rhizome and root of this plant contain beneficial constituents that have been used traditionally in the treatment of acne and skin inflammations as Thai traditional medicine. More recently studies have demonstrated antioxidative, detoxifying and anticarcinogenic characteristics. Several studies have also demonstrated antimicrobial efficacy, expecially against staphylococcus mutans.

Our Curcuma Xanthorrhiza CO2 Extract contains all lipohilic components extracted from the root of Curcuma Xanthorrhiza using pure and environmentally friendly supercritical fluid (natural Carbon Dioxide) extraction technique. Therefore, Curcuma Xanthorrhiza CO2 Extract contains no solvent residues, no inorganic salts, and no heavy metals – only pure, nutrient-rich oil. These beneficial constituents include 70 - 90 % essential oil containing mainly ar-curcumene, ß-curcumene and xanthorrhizol (Hydroxy-ar-Curcumene).
