Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Extract

Overview

Cymbopogon schoenanthus extract is derived from the plant known as camel grass or West Indian lemongrass. Native to Southern Asia and Northern Africa, camel grass is often added to herbal teas.

The extract contains a lemon-scented essential oil (with main compounds that include piperitone and β-elemene), flavonoids, resorcinol, and phenolic acids, which have antioxidant effects.

It is a soothing ingredient that helps with skin inflammation and irritation. The antioxidant compounds aid in scavenging free radicals and protecting the skin from oxidative damage.
