Daucus carota sativa(carrot) root extract


Thought to have been first grown in Afghanistan Carrot has been cultivated for 2000 years, however, it only came to England during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. It was used widely as a medicine for at least two hundred years but nowadays is used almost exclusively as a vegetable.

In natural skin care carrot extract is recommended for conditioning cosmetics and in sun protection products, as it has a low natural SPF. It has high content of carotenoids (radical catchers). Carrot can also contribute to the colour of a cream.
