Elder Berry, Whole is used to make the famous ‘elder berry syrup’ and as a flavoring ingredient for many beverages and food. This berry also holds health benefits for treating coughs, colds, bacterial and viral infections. This version is the whole berry, it hasn’t been crushed, making it easier to extract the benefits from it.
To use in beauty care recipes, this berry will steep a color into your product. Whether you add it to water or oil, if you heat it slightly and allow it to steep (very much like a tea), the color will bleed into your base liquid. You can then strain the juice and used the retained liquid in your recipe. Not only is it great for a coloring agent, Elder Berry, Whole also contains a high amount of natural occurring vitamin E, and antioxidants, which will be passed into your formulation.
INCI: Sambucus nigra (elder) berry.
