We have got the professional R&D that will formulate and monitor the interaction of ingredients and the cream throughout the production process. Therefore, our customers can put their trust and have confidence on our products. Let us illustrate more about the three steps of extraction processes.
Extraction method which we considered is Maceration. We macerate herbs and fruits in solvent so that the raw material won’t have to be heated and loss the active elements. After maceration, the solution will be filtered and extracted by Rotary Evaporator (continuous extraction) mixing with another solvent that has low boiling point. After that, we then get the “Crude extract” to mix with numerous effective formulas.
Identification of active ingredient is to define and analyze the component of that ingredient by using technique and modern equipment from our high-tech laboratory. For example, analysis of anti-oxidant enzyme can be done by using DPPH. This machine will tell us the concentration of anti-oxidant activities. Meanwhile, we also perform the patch test to determine the sensitivity level of each ingredient. These examinations are performed in order for our specialists to perceive the characteristic of each ingredient in which they can in turn determine the ultimate result accurately.
Concentration is specification of Crude extracts intensity that can dissolve in solvent. We place an importance on this process attentively; for example, we choose safety solvent for skin such as Propylene Glycol, Glycerin or Butylene Glycol. Those substances that have been dissolved in solvent can then go on to the next cosmetic production processes.

Lotus is a plant that was discovered approximately 3000-4000 years ago in Thailand. Lotus that we used can only be found in tropical zone, especially on Thai nutrient rich soils, since it cannot survive the cold.

This lotus stamen extract has ability to act as anti-oxidant which is the cause of aging process.

THE SPARKLING GLOW JEWEL” THAT FLAWLESSLY SERVE YOUR SKIN Pomegranate is a gorgeous fruit with luxury natural scent. It grows in Thailand and other Asian countries. However, we found that pomegranates from India are the best candidate for cosmetic revolution because they contain the highest concentration of phytochemicals such as polyphenols, anthocyanins, anthrocyanidins, ellagic acid derivatives, and hydrolyzable tannins. These enzymes come from seeds, skins, and juice aid in reducing oxidant activity, dark spots, extra oil on skins, and bacteria while firming and brightening your skin effectively as well. Ellagic, rich in flavonoids, will particularly add vitamins and minerals to your skin and reduce toxic substances that might cause harmful effects especially cancers.
Pueraria Mirifica Extract

Pueraria Mirifica rich in phytoestrogens such as miroestrol and deoxymiroestrol grows beautifully and strongly in the North east and Northern part of Thailand. Contributing to cosmetic industries, it acts as firming and anti-aging agent reducing wrinkles. We also used it in hair products as it also acts as hair growth factor. Nevertheless, Thai women often use it for breast firming because of its effectiveness in doing so.

THE LONG LIVE GINSENG FOR THE EVERLASTING HEALTHY SKIN Have you ever know that red ginseng we consume today is actually a natural white ginseng? The production process of ginseng has been manipulated for the best quality of it. After ginseng roots have been vanished by clean water, they have to undergo steam sterilization process at 120 to 130 degree Celsius for 3 hours causing the reddish-brown colorization of the roots. Then, we leave them dried out by sunlight until they wither. The Chinese often call them Korean ginseng. This Korean ginseng contains an important enzyme, Saponin. Saponin is a component of glycoside functioning as adaptogen which helps in blood circulation, balance blood pressure, stimulate middle part of nervous system, build up immunity, and slow down aging process.
