Ruscus aculeatus, commonly known as Butcher's Broom, is a plant native to the Mediterranean. 

The root of the Butcher's Broom plant has been used for various medicinal purposes for centuries and more recently in skincare.

Butchers broom extract has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds that help to protect the skin from damaging free radicals and reduce redness, swelling and irritation to the skin. Antioxidants help to prevent premature signs of ageing such as lines and wrinkles caused by free radical damage. 

Butchers broom is known for its vasoconstrictor activity, helping to constrict blood vessels which reduces inflammation, swelling and lightens darker areas. Constricting blood vessels reduces the appearance of puffiness under the eye, dark circles and swelling. 

Butchers Broom also has the ability to support and promote microcirculation in the skin; improved microcirculation is important for overall skin health and vitality.
