Demystifying Dragon’s Blood Extract (Antioxidant with Firming Benefits)


Even before you wonder about how we can possibly include the blood of a mythical creature in an elixir, we would like to clarify that Dragon’s blood is actually a deep red resin that’s acquired from a distinct plant species called Croton Lechleri (native to South American rain forests).

The tree is commonly known as the Dragon Tree, owing its name to the deep red color of its sap. For centuries, this highly effective ingredient has been used in curing various skin ailments. The dark red resin is acclaimed for its hydrating, nourishing, therapeutic, and anti-inflammatory properties. What’s more, Dragon’s blood also possesses antibacterial and anti-viral properties that help in curing innumerable skin related issues and conditions.

Each OKOKO product is backed up with an extensive amount of research and years of studies. We formulate products only after analyzing how to reap the optimum efficacy from our unique ingredients.

So how does Dragon’s Blood help our skin? Let’s look at how it benefits our skin and its health.

Dragon’s Blood can help in calming inflammation and redness and aid in protecting the skin from external irritants. This deep red resin contains unique properties that help  protect and repair the skin structure. Plus, the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of the Dragon’s Blood stimulate the growth of skin’s fibroblasts, which in turn helps restore injured skin.

We are not finished talking about this powerhouse ingredient yet!

Since Dragon’s Blood is high in antioxidants, it prevents free radicals that can damage your skin cells, causing premature aging. Along with skin regeneration, Dragon’s Blood also stimulates collagen production.
