Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide



Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide description

The polysaccharide portion derived from the seed of the _Cassia angustifolium_ plant, a small, flowering shrub. The seed of this plant and its fractions serve as emollients when applied to skin. As with all plants, _Cassia angustifolium_ is also a source of antioxidants. In this case, it’s a good source of the flavonoid compounds quercimeritrin, scutellarein, and rutin, all of which help defend skin’s surface against damage from airborne pollutants and other sources of environmental stress.
