Wasabia japonica

  • History

    Wasabi is endemic to Japan. The leaves of the wasabi plant are similar to those of the hollyhock, and it thrives near streams and rivers in the heart of the Japanese mountains, where it grows naturally. As a result, it is also known as "mountain hollyhock."

  • Location

    Wasabi roots used in extract come from Oregon (United-States)

  • Melvita's Commitment

    Wasabi extract helps to prevent the spread of bacteria on the skin. It is ideal for use in products for combination to oily skin. Thanks to its antioxidant properties, it helps protect epidermal cells against free radical damage. This makes it an ingredient that is also suitable for anti-aging skincare.
