**Description:** Organic ginger extract is a true innovation. It is created by mechanically cold-pressing dried ginger – without the addition of chemical substances or alcohols.

**Special Characteristics:** Organic ginger extract is a brown liquid. It has a characteristic, spicy aroma, with a pungent flavor. The main compounds are sesquiterpenes such as zingiberene and sesquiphellandrene. In lower concentrations, curcumenol, thujanol, nerol, geraniol, and farnesene are included. The pungent substances are gingerols, shogaols, and zingerone.

**Applications in Cosmetics:** Ginger was one of the first spices encountered on the spice route and was recommended by Greek physicians for aiding digestion. This remains one of its main areas of application today. Organic ginger extract is said to combat nausea, flatulence, and stomach disorders and also stimulates bile flow. Additionally, it is often taken in cold weather to support the body’s defense.

In cosmetics, organic ginger extract is used for composing spicy and natural notes and for scenting soaps and cosmetics. It is also a very good stabilizer for oriental fragrances. Additionally, when applied to lip care products, it leaves a tingling sensation, making the lips appear fuller.

In aromatherapy, the invigorating aroma of organic ginger extract reduces feelings of lethargy and apathy.

**Applications in Food:** Organic ginger extract flavors soups, sauces, rice, and meat dishes and is added to pastries, lemonades, and liqueurs, providing an exotic note. The interaction of sweet and spicy flavors specifically promises unique options for creating exceptional recipes.

**CAUTION: ALWAYS use diluted in a base oil or other solvent.**
