"Dragon's blood is a chock-full storehouse of phytochemicals including proanthocyanidins (antioxidants), diterpenes, phytosterols, simple phenols, and biologically active alkaloids and lignans. The most well-known active components in dragon's blood are an alkaloid named apsine and a lignan named dimethylcedrusine. Tapsine has been documented to have anti-inflammatory and wound-healing actions, and when combined with the proanthocyanidins, also shows anti-viral activities.
Externally, the unique properties of dragon's blood make it an excellent addition to cosmetic applications targeting protection, anti-aging, and general wellness of skin. Because of its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial effects, dragon's blood plays a starring role as one of the active ingredients in Dermaxime's Problem Skin Range. Its appearance in mainstream American cosmetics, however, is relatively rare. As an alternative, pure dragon's blood can be purchased for concocting your own potions at home." - Truth In Aging
"More recently, several scientific tests have been conducted on a proprietary sangre de grado product (made into a skin balm) which was also based on traditional uses. They reported that in pest control workers, a sangre de grado balm was preferred over placebo, for the relief of itching, pain, discomfort, swelling, and redness in response to wasps, fire ants, mosquitoes, bees, cuts, abrasions, and allergic plant reactions (poison ivy and others)." - Raintree - Tropical Plant Database
