Garlic extract is a natural ingredient derived from the garlic bulb, known for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It contains sulfur compounds, vitamins, and minerals that make it a popular ingredient in cosmetic and personal care products. Garlic extract is used to treat acne and other skin infections, soothe inflammation, and improve skin texture.
It is commonly found in topical creams, serums, and spot treatments. Garlic extract is also used in hair care products for its ability to promote hair growth and treat scalp infections. However, due to its strong odor, garlic extract is often combined with other ingredients to minimize its scent.
