Peppermint (Mentha Pipperita) Leaf Powder
100% pure, organic certified herbal powder.
Mint has antibacterial and antioxidant effects from the tannins and flavonoids which abound in it, and its distinctive smell and flavor is due to the naturally occurring menthol.
Mint powder infusion is an excellent skin cleanser. Rich in salicylic acid which makes it a good anti-acne remedy, its anti-inflammatory properties make it very soothing to the skin in cases of insect bites and acne, as its cooling sensation provides instant relief.
Rich in menthol, mint helps hair growth because of its ability to stimulate increased blood flow to the scalp and hair roots which promotes healthy hair follicles and longer, fuller hair.
Peppermint kills bacteria and stimulates blood circulation on our scalp, which allows our hair to receive more nutrients and, consequently, grow stronger and faster.
Its refreshing aroma and cooling sensation makes it a popular choice in home products like bath preparations, mouthwashes, toothpaste, and ointments.
