Goji, also called "the tree of youth", is a perennial whose name comes from the American botanist Bradley Dobos who got it from the pronounce of the Chinese word "berry".
These berries (Lycium Barbarum L.) are red and grow wild in Tibet, in Mongolia and in some provinces of China at an altitude of 1.500 meters, on an uncontaminated ground.
Goji is dried in the sun naturally, then sifted without machines and treated with natural techniques that protect it against insect contaminations; these natural processes make it an antioxidant par excellence.
According to Chinese medical literature, Goji berries help to rebalance the "Yin" and the "Yang" of the body, as they contain vitamins C and vitamins E, protecting cells from the damage caused by free radicals.
Considering that for over 2.000 years in China these berries have been appreciated both as food and natural remedy helping to keep the body healthy, they are also called "the fruit of longevity", our laboratory team has decided to create a cosmetic line with Goji extracts.
