Phytotal™ FM PS

Add to favourites
Phytotal FM PS is a botanical complex of 3 plants, walnut, medlar and centella, a unique blend of hydrophilic and lipophilic active compounds. Walnut tree husk and leaf contain essential oil, complex tannins, saccharides (pectin, inositol) and naphtoquinone derivatives mainly juglone. The astringency of walnut extracts mostly comes from tannins and juglone. Walnut leaves and shell may also promote firming, radical scavenging and tonifying actions. Medlar leaves are tannin rich and said to have bio-protective and firming properties for smoothing the skin surface. Traditionally they have been used as astringent. Centella asiatica leaves contain essential oil, sterols, flavonol heterosides, polyines, triterpenic saponins and above all, madecassic and asiatic acid as well as their derivatives and homologues (asiaticoside and madecassoside). Centella Asiatica possesses stimulating and regenerating activities, antiinflammatory and wound healing properties. Its stimulation of the collagen synthesis is essentially due to the saponins. Centella leaves may increase tensile strength of the skin and reduce cutaneous fatigue. The phytosynergy of these three plants confers to the extract its firming, tonifying and anti-fatigue powers.
