Zanthoxylum bungeanum is a tree native to China, where it can be found throughout the country. Its culture dates back more than 2000 years, and the berry has been given to gods as an offering or used in Chinese traditional medicine to reduce cutaneous discomforts occurring with sensitive skins. Its dried fruit follicles are used as a culinary spice (Sichuan pepper) since ancient times, particularly popular for mingling citrus flavours and spiciness. Zanthocare™ is a multifunctional ingredient providing proven balancing, protecting and soothing effects. It is a perfect ingredient for body care, due to its effects on various factors: reduction of bad body odour, protection against early ageing of the skin, reduction of inflammatory reactions, while respecting the skin microbiome. As a universal ingredient, Zanthocare™ is ideal for an inclusive beauty care.
