Healing Power from the Kingdom of Plants.
DESCRIPTION: Allantoin is a natural substance found, for example, in comfrey (Symphytum officinale), maple, wheat germ, and black salsify.
APPLICATION: In the year 1800 allantoin was discovered by Buniva and LouisNicolas Vauquelin in the allantoic fluid of cows. This is also where its name stems from. However, it was already used by Hildegard von Bingen at the beginning of the 12th century for wound healing and bone fractures. Since then, allantoin has been found in many other plants.
EFFECT: Allantoin supports healing processes and soothes, softens and smoothers the skin. It also has a stimulating effect on cell division. It is as an active ingredient in over-the-counter cosmetics, including, a moisturizing and keratolytic effect, increasing the water content of the extracellular matrix and enhancing the desquamation of upper layers of dead skin cells, increasing the smoothness of the skin; promoting cell proliferation and wound healing; and a soothing, anti-irritant, and skin protectant effect by forming complexes with irritant and sensitizing agents.
