The marshmallow herb comes from the Althaea plant native to Northern Africa, Europe, and Western Asia. It contains a thick gel-like substance called mucilage (the plant based version of snail mucin, is one way to think of it) as well as polysaccharides and flavonoids.
Benefits: This phenomenal anti-ager reduces fine lines, soothes, hydrates, protects your skin and generally boosts skin’s health. The mucilage in this extract has plumping and barrier-protecting properties that are a great avenue for moisture. Marshmallow extract is also a great ingredient for treating eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and other topical skin issues (burns and insect bites, too).
Skin Types: Marshmallow works with all skin!
