The material is produced from extracts of green Perilla leaves environment-friendly grown by contract farmers in Hokkaido, Japan.
Though it has a faint, characteristic odor and taste, Perilla Leaf Extract is highly water soluble and can be used in a wide range of food, nutraceutical and cosmetic products.
