The term ginseng covers Asian, Chinese or Korean ginseng, botanical name Panax ginseng, and American ginseng, or Panax quinquefolius. Siberian ginseng, Eleutherococcus senticosus, is a different plant, lacking ginsenosides, the purported medicinal ingredient in Panax. University of Maryland Medical Center and Mayo Clinic researchers cite clinical studies demonstrating that Asian ginseng improves immune function and resistance to infection. A 2009 Mayo Clinic report recommends thorough skin cleansing with antiseptics and high-quality soap in acne care. Traditional herbalists and modern soap makers combine these benefits.
Mayo Clinic physicians report several research studies indicating that ginseng can boost your immune system. Patients with acute bronchitis experienced improved antibiotic effectiveness when treatment was accompanied by ginseng. A study reported by University of Maryland researchers showed that a group of people given flu vaccine and ginseng had 2/3 fewer flu cases than one given vaccine alone. Studies such as these are consistent with traditional views that ginseng boosts the body’s defenses and support including ginseng in soaps to treat acne.
Traditional Asian medical practitioners ascribe many healing and curative properties to ginseng. Among them are acne scar healing, general skin care and soothing of skin irritation, wrinkle prevention, wound healing, relief of herpes outbreaks, anti-inflammatory properties, antibacterial, antifungal and anti-infective abilities. Taken together, these purported benefits of ginseng support including it in soaps to treat acne.
