The ginkgo tree, or maidenhair tree, grows 30 to 40 meters high. It is one of the oldest plant species in the world and represents the link between ferns and conifers.
The origins of the ginkgo family can be traced back to over 250 million years ago. Ginkgo leaves have been used as a remedy and as an elixir of eternal youth for more than 2,000 years.
In cosmetics, the ginkgo extract supports microcirculation and the natural immune defence. In addition, it has strong regenerative effects, improving skin elasticity and preventing wrinkles.
