This orchid has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine for its powerful detoxifying effect and eliminating external and internal causes of disease.

Mode of action

Extracted from the root of Gastrodia elata, obtained by a green process, Oxilata is a 100% natural, preservative-free ingredient, particularly rich in polysaccharides and COSMOS approved.
