Description

Action

  • High anti-radical and anti-inflammatory activity due to the high concentration of various phenolic compounds.
  • Mild skin whitening effect as a result of increased inhibition of tyrosinase – an enzyme involved in melanin synthesis.
  • The high concentration of delphinidin derivatives is reported to have a normalizing effect on keratinocyte proliferation in psoriasis cases.

Origin

The anti-microbial activity of Lady’s mantle hinders inflammation and helps to reduce it in wounds or open sores. Infusions are used to wash problematic and irritated skin to reduce itching. Some of the compounds found in a lady’s mantle also normalize cell proliferation in psoriasis cases.
