ACTISMART™ artemisia

Traditional antimicrobial protection for the skin

Botanical extract that boosts the antimicrobial peptide, calprotectin, to protect the skin against pathogen invasion and promote skin health.

Ancient Chinese plant with a distinguished protective potential

China's focus on natural sources for wellness inspired other cultures and still inspires modern medicine.

In fact, it was the inspiration behind the discovery of a Nobel-winning anti-malarial drug, that included terpene compounds from the Artemisia plant, which is also composed of other antibacterial and antioxidant flavonoids and phenols.

In vitro efficacy
