Capsicum Frutescens Fruit Extract

Capsicum Frutescens fruit extract is derived from the plant or fruit of hot chili peppers. Capsicum fruit extracts and resins vary from yellowish to reddish-brown viscous liquids. Capsaicin is a compound isolated from chili peppers. Capsaicin is responsible for the hot burning sensation that occurs when you eat or handle a chili pepper. In cosmetics and personal care products, Capsicum-derived ingredients are used in the formulation of shampoo and hair products, as well as skin care, cleansing and bathing products.
