Millet Seed Extract

Millet Seed Extract

Panicum Miliaceum (Millet) Seed Extract

Millet originally grew in eastern India and was cultivated in China as early as 2500 B.C. where it was regarded as one of the five holy plants and was the main source of food. First recommended by the Greek philosopher Pythagoras to promote health and strength, millet has since been used in skin care to fortify and enliven. The one-year-old and perennial plant can reach a height of up to 1 metre with broad leaves and hanging panicles and has a very short growing season of 100 –110 days.
Millet is more resilient to harsh conditions than other grains, often flourishing in areas that would otherwise be too cold or dry. To prevent millet from withering and ensure that it preserves its healthy functions, it creates a protective and shaping silicic acid layer, which is particularly marked in the husks.This gives millet its extraordinarily strong preservative power. The seed extract contains mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E that contribute regenerative and anti-inflammatory properties. The extract also contains silicic acid that promotes the formation of collagen and elastin while helping to retain moisture.
