Why is Rhodiola Rosea relatively less used in skincare products?
At present, there are more than 90 species of Rhodiola Rosea in the world, most of which are distributed in the alpine regions of the northern hemisphere, and most of them grow in alpine flowstones or shrubs. China has 73 species, of which Tibet has 32 species and 2 varieties. In recent years, due to artificial mining and excavation, the number of Rhodiola Rosea has dropped sharply, and wild Rhodiola Rosea has become a rare plant.
1. Scarce resources and high development costs
In recent years, due to the lack of wild Rhodiola Rosea resources, a few skincare products use Rhodiola Rosea as the main ingredient. Coupled with the high cost of developing Rhodiola Rosea planting bases, investment in this area is a big problem.
2. The value of skincare is high, but the head market has been occupied
Rhodiola Rosea root has a high content of phenolic components, shows strong and broad-spectrum antioxidant properties, and can be used as an antioxidant with anti-aging effects. Although Rhodiola Rosea has an excellent effect as a skincare element added to the product, the top brand in the market positioning has already occupied the cognitive attributes of the large crowd.
3. Traditional medicinal values
Rhodiola Rosea is generally used in medicine because of its superior medicinal properties in anti-hypoxia, anti-fatigue, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular, and immune systems.
