Lipolami™ ER

Milk Thistle is a biennial, herbaceous plant, native to southern Europe and Northern Africa. It is also widely cultivated now. It bears large green shiny leaves and purple tubulous flowers surrounded by thorny bracts. Milk Thistle was already known to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who used it to treat liver and bile disorders. Pliny recommended drinking Milk Thistle juice with a little honey to eliminate excess bile. Its leaves, flowers and roots have historically been considered a vegetable in European diets, and its fruits (achenes), which resemble seeds, have been roasted for use as a coffee substitute. The plant is also part of the TCM and known as Shui Fei Ji. The plant is still used today used as an antidote for Amanita mushroom poisoning and to protect the liver and kidneys from toxic medications. Milk Thistle symbolises sacred things and protection. Lipolami ER is a 100% natural derived esters obtained from milk thistle oil extracted from seeds. It provides skincare products with luxurious skin-feel: formulations are softer, with non oily touch, not sticky and easy to spread. It also improves quality of emulsions thanks to its fluidity and low surface tension and more comfort of foaming products. Finally, it's the perfect dispersant for pigments and minerals for make-up formulas. As an ingredient with biological activity, Lipolami ER preserves the skin barrier function against dryness and delipidation.
