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
- Induction of the expression of calprotectin genes for a potentially higher antimicrobial activity.
- Increased levels of calprotectin, suggesting a protective effect against pathogen invasion
Cosmetic preparations aiming to provide a protective and antimicrobial effect to the skin.
