Turmeric's scientific name is Curcuma longa, or C. domestica, which is also known as turmeric.

In the United States, turmeric, a member of the ginger family, can be found all year long. The bulbous herb has large, rectangular, and long leaves that are attached to its stalk.

Curry powder and mustard are both made from a herb that is mostly produced in India. Components of the plant, such as the rhizome or bulb, are used in both culinary and medicinal applications. The turmeric bulb is normally washed, fried, and dried before it can be used in a recipe.

Turmeric can be consumed in a variety of ways and for a variety of purposes. Samoan herbal powder can be used to cure everything from skin ulcers to acne.

Curcumin's ability to help with gallbladder issues shows how versatile the chemical is.

Turmeric has been found to enhance the shelf life of seafood that has been cooled. A team of experts also studied turmeric, which is a prominent ingredient in many fish meals. Marinating fish for 15 to 30 minutes in turmeric solutions has a profound effect on its flavour and texture. Under usual conditions, the self-life of control shrimp, for example, was only 13 days. At this point, the shrimp's skin started to become black as it decomposed. Dip the shrimp in a turmeric solution to keep it fresh for a week longer. After soaking in a turmeric and salt solution, the shrimp's shelf life was increased by 42 days.

What is lanolin?

The use of lanolin in beauty care dates back many years, and is especially favored for its skin benefits. Derived from the sebaceous glands of sheep, lanolin is a natural wax that protects the animals from the elements. The extraction of lanolin from raw wool is done through a soap solution or hot water kneading process, followed by isolation through centrifuging, bleaching, deodorizing, and drying.

Lanolin is highly valued for its moisturizing properties and ability to hydrate not only the skin, but also nails and hair. It helps to retain moisture and serves as a lubricant, making the skin smoother and softer.

At Elma Skin Care, we use lanolin as the foundation of all of our products. We ensure that the lanolin used is ethically sourced from sheep wool that has been shorn without causing harm to the animal.
