ginkgo

Did you know?
The word ginkgo means "silver apricot."

ginkgo

Referred to as a living fossil, the ginkgo biloba tree was flourishing when dinosaurs roamed the earth. In Japan, temples and shrines are often beautified with ginkgos, many of which are believed to be more than 1,000 years old. How do these astounding trees attain such longevity? They are resistant to pests, diseases, and pollution. Ginkgos can even thrive in inner cities, where other trees often fail.

This amazing survivor has also been used for thousands of years in Chinese medicine; the nuts are believed to treat respiratory ailments. More recently, it has been studied to determine its potentially beneficial effects on age-related memory decline. At DHC, we use it to fortify, condition, and soothe the skin. You'll find ginkgo biloba leaf extract in After Shave Lotion [Men]*, along with aloe and chamomile, to provide some TLC for complexions that have been roughed up by shaving.
