Vaccinium Myrtillus Fruit Extract
Aka bilberry fruit extract or wild nordic blueberry extract. Bilberry is a close relative of the blueberry (Vaccinium cyanococcus). Both are of the same plant genus and produce fruit which look and taste similar. While blueberries are cultivated in bushes, various places around the world, wild bilberries grow on small shrubs mainly in the northern parts of Europe. Bilberries include both higher vitamin C and vitamin E content than cultivated blueberries. Bilberries also contain a very high content of anthocyanin, much higher than that of a blueberry, that effectively works to combat free radicals and increase blood circulation while soothing irritated scalp.
