Ingredient of the Week: Magnolia Extract

Ingredient of the Week: Magnolia Extract

Year after year, we get excited when magnolias start to bloom. The delicate and pink petals not only usher in spring, but they also harness several benefits for the skin.


Magnolia, used in natural cosmetics, is derived from the bark or the flower buds of the Magnolia Officinalis. The small tree is native to Asia where it has been used as a medicinal plant in traditional Chinese medicine and has been valued for its skin-soothing properties for more than 2 000 years. It is said to alleviate itchiness whilst making acne-prone skin and swelling more manageable. What's more, they are a well-loved delicacy in China, often enjoyed when fried.

Effect of magnolia extract on the skin

Depending on whether the extract is derived from the bark or the flower buds, it can have anti-inflammatory, soothing or antioxidant effects on the skin. Redness is minimised and skin aging, brought about by chronic microinflammation on mature skin types, is decreased. The antioxidant content does the rest. Thus, magnolia extracts are a wonderful component in anti-aging product formulas.

Magnolia extracts have a soothing effect on skin irritations, reduces pigmentation and age spots whilst giving the complexion a fresh and even tone. Therefore, we've used it as one of the key components in our luxurious skincare line.
