Ratanhia (Krameria Triandra)
Commonly referred to as Ratanhia and literally meaning “the plant creeping on the floor,” this shrub is native to the Andes Mountains in Bolivia and Peru. The plant is about knee high, with branches sweeping out across the ground. Strong roots, hairy silver leaves and red flowers that bloom during the rainy season make up this plant. The roots of the Ratanhia have historically been used by the natives of Bolivia and Peru to care for their teeth and strengthen their gums. High in tannins, the roots contain astringent and toning properties, easing inflammation, redness and infection. The root extract also tightens fine veins and tissues.
Ratanhia (Krameria Triandra) Root Extract is used in:
