Guarana Extract (Paullinia cupana) contains an impressive range of stimulants including caffeine which makes it popular in beverages., But it has equally fantastic qualities when used appropriately in cosmetics and skincare.
The seeds are native to the Brazilian Amazon and have been used for centuries by Amazon tribes and a pain reliever.
Due to its strong antioxidant and antimicrobial properties, guarana is popular in the cosmetics industry as an ingredient in anti-aging creams and eye serums, lotions, soaps and hair products.
But perhaps the most interesting property is how it helps combat hair fall. Both coffee and Guarana are helping to clear the scalp and swell the hair bulb stopping premature hair fall.
