Morus bombycis is a species from the genus Morus, which comprises 10 to 16 species of deciduous trees commonly known as mulberries. Extracts from the mulberry root are known to contain high concentrations of antioxidants. In skin care products, antioxidants strengthen the skin’s defenses against environmental free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that contribute to the formation of premature wrinkles and fine lines on the skin. Thus, Morus bombycis root extract is an excellent anti-aging ingredient.
