Ingredient: Turmeric

The spice Turmeric is from the dried & ground root of the Rhizomatous Heraceous Perennial plant of the Ginger family. Native to India & Southeast Asia, it has incredible medicinal benefits for your body, hair & skin. The active ingredient in Turmeric, Curcumin, is a powerful anti-allergic, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory & antioxidant. Traditionally known for its anti-microbial properties, in India, it is used as an antiseptic for disinfecting wounds, along with the ability to target & treat inflammatory skin conditions such as Acne, Dry Skin, Psoriasis & Eczema. It's also used as a ritualistic ingredient in Asia and is put in the hair or on the skin to increase supernatural & psychic abilities (which we can't vouch for but that would be incredible to experience!). Below, though, are the benefits we could verify :
