INCI Name: Althaea officinalis Leaf/Root Extract, Helianthus annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil
Known throughout the ancient Egyptian, Arab, Greek, and Roman cultures, Althaea officinalis herb has been used continually for at least 2000 years. Marsh-mallow has been used in beverages, desserts, candies, cosmetic creams, and was the
root of the original marshmallow confectionery. In traditional folk practices, Marshmallow Roots were given to soothe and moisten mucous membranes of the respiratory, digestive, and urinary tracts, and also as an external poultice. Marshmallow Root Infused Oil is perfect for using in a variety of ways, making a wonderful addition to homemade salves, ointments, lotions, and other body care products.
Marshmallow Root Oil can be used externally for its good anti-inflammatory properties to treat localised skin irritations, boils, burns, sores, ulcers, wounds and all kinds of skin inflammations. However, the root not only has good anti-inflammatory properties, it also boosts cell immunity. Marshmallow Root is also used to make natural shampoos and conditioners for dry or damaged hair. It's considered particularly beneficial in aftershave and skincare products that treat sunburns and dry skin.
