opulus nigra, also known as black poplar, is a deciduous tree widely distributed in Europe, southwest-rn and central Asia, and northwestern Africa. It is recognizable by its gnarled trunk and dark grey orlack bark, hence the name, black poplar. The leaf buds are covered with a resinous sap that has atrong odor and a bitter taste. The resin obtained from buds is made into a salve and used in herbalemedies. The buds contain salicin that can be decomposed into salicylic acid upon absorption. Theuds are internally used to treat bronchitis and upper respiratory tract infections, and externally to treat,rthritis, muscular pain, and as a salve for dry skin.
cientific studies show the potential benefits of P. nigra extract on skin by modulating gene transcrip-ions involved in anti-oxidant defenses, inflammatory responses, and cell renewal. More specifically,affeic acid and p-coumaric acid were demonstrated to function as antioxidants by the Oxygen Radicalbsorbance Capacity (ORAC) assay.
