Phytessence™ Plantago

Add to favourites
Native to Europe and temperate regions of Asia, Plantago is known as medicinal plant since Greco-Roman times. The leaves were traditionally used as a remedy which was mainly used topically for the treatment of inflammatory skin. In the Middle-Age, these applications were adopted and Plantago was later known for its bloodpurifying, fever-reducing and wound-healing effect. Acteoside is the main active of plantain and has several properties: anti-inflammatory, free radical-scavenger and antibacterial. It has been proved to be efficient against superoxide anion formation and also to inhibit lipid peroxidation. Plantago shows as well anti-bacterial properties. Cosmetically, plantain can be used to protect the skin against UV or polluted atmospheres effects: it decreases free radical formation and supports the inhibition of peroxidation of the cell membrane lipids. The skin is softer and inflammations due to stress exposure are eliminated. Phytessence™ Plantago has demonstrated to completely reduced the sunburn after seven days and 2 applications per day, and has proven to almost halves the time to reduce the skin redness to normal compared to placebo.
