Elderberry extract is an antimicrobial product developed by Active Micro Technologies. Natural product since it is extracted from elderberries.
Elderberries are rich in phyto nutrients (antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties) such as coffeeic acid, chlorogenic acid, ferulic acid and quercetin. The fruit also contains anthocyans who help strengthen the immune system. Antioxidants, like those found in elderberries, are excellent additions to skin care diets because they provide protection against free radicals that contribute to cellular damage, aging and the formation of wrinkles. Bioflavoinoids, which can also be found in elderberries, have astringent properties that help firm the skin and offer additional anti-wrinkle advantages. This super fruit is also an excellent source of undercylenic acid, an organic fatty acid which offers large antimicrobial advantages and which is particularly effective against fungal microorganisms.
There is no solvent used in its extraction and it does not contain any conservation or antioxidant agent added.

We recommend avoiding infusions and favoring aloe gel (already contains a preservative), distilled water and hydrosols. According to chemists, the latter are not stable, but we are herbalists :) And we love hydrosols, which can keep a good year or more (rather stable for water). With hydrosols in the aqueous phase, an emulsion h/e is kept, thanks to the elderberry, a few months. It has an antibacterial action in emulsions, but its antifungal action is very low = mold in the cream after a short time, why we recommend, for emulsions, to combine it with another preservative.
