Maca Root Powder, Lepidium meyenii, or Peruvian ginseng – no matter how the super root is referred to, it’s packed with benefits for both the skin and hair. The superfood is native to the Peruvian Andres, growing at an altitude between 3 500 and 4 500 meters, resulting to the plant being exposed to extreme weather conditions such as extreme temperature fluctuations, gushing winds, and intensive exposure to UV rays. All these factors result in a plant that is extraordinarily robust and resistant.
Maca Root developed its way as an ingredient in skin and hair care products because it contains vitamins such as B1, B2, C, and E and many minerals including zinc, calcium, phosphorous, and potassium. Maca Root also has skin essentials, which nourish the skin and strengthen collagen links.
As we age the levels of collagen found in our skin decrease, which can leave the skin looking aged and saggy. Therefore the increase in collagen synthesis only improves the skin’s appearance by reducing wrinkles and fine lines and leaving the skin looking toned and firm.
