Phytoliquid™ Marshmallow PG

Add to favourites
Marshmallow is a quintessential symbol of sweetness, referring confectionery. Its Latin name " althaea " comes from the ancient Greek word - althein - which means “ curing ". Main constituents of marshmallow are a mixture of acidic polysaccharides comprising an arabinan, glucans and a rhamnogalacturonan. Also present are pectin, sugars, asparagin and small amounts of sterols. Traditionally, marshmallow extracts are used in order to soften and protect the skin against burns or insect bites. The roots are said to have anti-inflammatory properties and are used in an ointment for boils and abscesses, and in a mouthwash for inflammation. Symbol of infinite softness, its soothing properties heal the skin and the scalp affected by irritations or rashes. As a true source of hydration, it protects the skin and the hair and prevent dehydration.
