Totarol Totarol is a naturally occurring plant extract with potent anti-bacterial activity against both gram positive and gram negative bacteria. Totarol has also potent anti-oxidant properties.

The most abundant source for Totarol is the heartwood of New Zealand’s Totara Tree. The whole process is however totally sustainable and environmentally friendly as only dead wood is being extracted and no live trees have therefore to be cut. Antioxidant Activity: Totarol strongly inhibits lipid peroxidation and scavenges ROS (reactive oxygen species) Antibacterial Activity: Totarol is active against acne and tooth decay bacteria, and is one of the rare phytochemicals active against penicillin and methicillin resistant strains of Staphylococcus aureus. It may be used in a variety of cosmetic formulas as a natural preservative to prevent the growth of bacteria.
