The Magic of Ginger for Your Skin

Ginger's skincare journey goes way back in time, tracing its roots to ancient Asian, Indian, and Arabic herbal traditions.

In the world of skincare, we often look for fancy solutions, but oftentimes the best answers are in the simplest of places. One such secret is ginger, yes, that ginger you use in your cooking. It's a superfood that's been cherished for ages around the world for not only it's amazing scent and flavor, but for it's medical and cosmetic benefits. Let's uncover the story behind ginger, its historical journey into skincare, and how it can transform your skin when it's included in essential daily-use items like MANTL's Invisible Daily SPF 30.


What, Exactly, IS Ginger?

Ginger, scientifically known as Zingiber officinale, is a root with a zesty flavor, popular in kitchens globally, and is the most commonly used condiment around the world. Oddly enough, it does not grow in the wild, which means that it has been cultivated by humans for an estimated 5,000 years. The plant itself has a beautiful bloom that thrives in tropical climates, but it's the root that really packs a punch.

To dive into the science, there are approximately 400 natural-occurring chemicals in ginger, which is 79% water, 18% carbohydrates, 2% protein, and 1% fat, and is packed with vitamin B6, magnesium, and manganese. Ginger gets it's trademark scent from ketones, including  beta-bisabolene and zingiberenezingeroneshogaols, and gingerols

Look for ginger in the spice cabinet, pickled on a tray of sushi, and in tea when you have an upset stomach. But its role doesn't end in the kitchen; it's also a trusted skincare ingredient.

Ginger in Skincare: A Quick History

Ginger's skincare journey goes way back in time, tracing its roots to ancient Asian, Indian, and Arabic herbal traditions. People didn't just value ginger for its taste; they revered it for its healing properties. Over the years, it moved from the spice rack to the bathroom shelf.

Ginger was used topically for various skin issues, making it one of the oldest natural remedies. Confucius first wrote about ginger 3,000 years ago, and ancient Asian texts documented ginger's application for skin problems, highlighting its enduring role in skincare.
