Is Dragon’s Blood The Answer To Anti-Ageing?

It might sound like something straight out of a fantasy novel, but the ingredient dragon’s blood is more popular than ever, all thanks to it’s anti-ageing properties.

“Dragon’s blood is the rich red sap of the Croton Lecheri Tree in the Amazon rainforest,” says Alex Sisiolas, founder of Skin Physics. “It’s called Dragon’s Blood because when the bark is cut the sap oozes red, and has historically been used for Centuries for medicinal and healing purposes. It’s also ideal for sensitive or stressed skin to plump-out lines and counteract visible sagging, while protecting from the elements while also hydrating the deepest layers of the skin.”
