Inflammation is the universal sign of an immune response in the body. Unfortunately, our skin can be especially prone to inflammation, resulting in redness, blemishes, and puffiness. But there’s a powerful herbal extract that is effective at combating inflammation while promoting healthier, younger-looking skin.
Epilobium angustifolium extract (also known as burnt weed, willow herb, or fire weed extract) is naturally an antioxidant. It not only protects the skin from oxidative damage but also saves the preparation from undesirable changes due to oxidation/ chemical degradation/light/moisture.
This plant has natural anti-inflammatory properties, perfect to soothe irritated skin, making this a great face cleanser for sensitive skin. Willowherb is also an antioxidant that can help prevent cell damage by protecting them from free radicals.
The tannins and flavonoids present in the extract are soothing agents also because they are anti-inflammatory in nature. Thus, it calms down the estimated or reddened sensitive skin. As per the reliable resources, it starts showing a soothing effect in as minimum as 30 minutes of use.
It regulates the sebum production in the epidermal layer of skin, which is beneficial for acne-prone skin. Acne affected skin gets a two-way benefit of sebum regulation as well as a soothing effect on the skin. It is used alone and with various other extracts in skincare, especially in acne and anti-aging treatments.
Favored by Native Americans, the plant has long been used to soothe sensitive or environmentally stressed skin. Finally, it seems contemporary science has caught up, with independent human and laboratory-based studies finding that Epilobium Angustifolium Extract delivers a potent anti-inflammatory effect.
“Fire weed” extract is also an antioxidant, delivering a potent anti-inflammatory effect and acts as a soothing agent, antioxidant and anti-acne agent. It soothes acne-prone skin and reduces erythema induced by chemicals and UV exposure. It can be used for sebum regulation, acne-prone skin, soothing, reducing inflammation, and sensitive skin.
As a powerful antioxidant, Epilobium Angustifolium Extract also prevents the cell damage otherwise inflicted by free radicals. Boasting greater oxyradical absorption than either the enzyme Superoxide Dismutase or L-Ascorbic Acid, this ingredient is gaining superstar status in botanical cosmeceuticals.
For those who are suffering from confidence-debilitating acne, the ingredient’s antibacterial qualities work against Propionibacterium Acnes, the bacteria responsible for the condition.
