Maplifa® is a patent pending, phenolic-enriched red maple (Acer rubrum) leaf extract containing ginnalin A (GA) and other glucitol-core containing gallotannins (GCGs); GCGs are distinctive polyphenols with antioxidant properties that are uncommonly found in natural plant sources but are unique to the red maple. Maplifa is sustainably harvested using eco-friendly techniques that aim to promote healthy tree populations. The harvesting and collection of the leaves for Maplifa do not negatively impact or harm the maturing trees, in fact, it promotes healthy growth.

Exclusively offered by Verdure Sciences®, Maplifa® delivers tangible health benefits for skin, dermal, and personal care applications. Additionally, Verdure collects red maple leaves and manufactures the extract in North America, making Maplifa a 100% North American botanical ingredient offering; all steps from growth to extraction are done in North America.
