- Perfect dermal care against UV
- Inhibitory effect on melanin production and histamine release
- Improvement of skin elasticity and recovering of wrinkle on the skin
Geranium Robertianum extract is obtained from the plant commonly known as Herb Robert. Historically the plant was valued for its medicinal qualities, but also Herb Robert has a wide application in modern medicine.
Due to its antibiotic and antiviral properties, topically applied geranium robertianum is often used as an effective clean and poultice for wounds. Its anti-microbial and astringent properties allow Herb Robert to treat a variety of skin related conditions including brushes.
Herb Robert can also be used to treat eczema, acne, inflammation under fingernails and toenails, and other skin conditions. The herb is a rich source of germanium, which is a mineral required for the transport of oxygen to the skin cells. It also promotes electrical activity within the cells and provides energy. Since cancer cannot thrive in an oxygen-rich environment, herb Robert may decrease the amount of cancer cells and shrink tumors.
This mineral, germanium, helps provide the antioxidant properties that help make the herb such an effective healing remedy. Moreover, Herb Robert contains minerals, including iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus, as well as vitamins A, B, and C.
Mode of Action:
Scientists have found that an enzyme called tryptase, which is released from mast cells and was suspected of inducing inflammation, causes skin troubles. Furthermore, the studies revealed that tryptase was expressed particularly strongly in skin that had been irradiated with UV rays. After extensive research, scientists have found that geranium robertianum extract has the power to suppress the effects of skin-damaging tryptase, and thus skin inflammation and photoaging.
