Plantain Extract

Plantain has been used in skincare for centuries. Nicholas Culpeper, english herbalist and botanist, described plantain as being “profitable against any inflammations and breakings out of the skin, and against burnings and scaldings by fire and water.” It contains biologically active compounds such as polysaccharides, allantoin, several minerals, caffeic acid derivatives, flavonoids, iridoid glycosides and terpenoids. Plantain is a good source of antioxidants like vitamin C and carotenoids, as well as vitamin K. It has also astringent properties related to the presence of tannins, as well as anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties from caffeic acid and flavonoids. All of our high-quality plant extracts are produced in Switzerland with very gentle methods, in a specialized company which has also the CSE (Certified Sustainable Economics) certification.
