A smart combination

Olibanum oil extract for natural cosmetics

The production of olibanum extracts and isolating of boswellia acids is a costly process. Prof. Dr. Gerald Muschiolik et al. here present a special application of short press extraction with which an  oil extract* of Boswellia gum resin can be obtained. Blended with other oils that improve the penetration performance, and the emulsifying and stabilising action of Trimulsin from wheat flour, it is highly suitable for natural emulsions.
