If you read our last blog post, you know exactly why Ingredients are so important (if you didn’t catch it you can read it HERE)..so now we will begin to bring you one ingredient at a time from our stellar line-up of Truly Amazing Natural Ingredients.
TO RECAP: We have been hard at work, adding an extensive Ingredient Glossary to our website @http://www.tevaskincare.com/our-ingredients/, which lists every ingredient we use, in every product we make.
Every ingredient we use has its own Unique story. And so each ingredient page will tell the History, Origins & Source, INCI (Official International Nomenclature Cosmetic Ingredient Name), Uses (both Modern and Ancient), as well as the Scientifically Proven Active Compounds and Research Study results.
ALLANTOIN – THE POWER OF COMFREY ROOT EXTRACT
Comfrey Root has been used historically since the times of the ancient Egyptians and Greeks to combat Eczema, Acne, Psoriasis, Sunburn and in wound care. In 1912, scientists submitted samples of Comfrey Root for chemical analysis and thereby isolated the compound Allantoin (later found in many forms, both vegetable, and animal as a metabolite) as being the primary active. This compound was used during World War I to treat refractory wound infections, saving many limbs from the ravages of gangrene.
Here at the Teva Skin Science lab, our Allantoin is naturally steam extracted from Organic Comfrey Root (Symphytum Officinale). In addition to its superior healing properties, Allantoin’s cellular regeneration properties (collagen building!) make it an optimal Organic/All-Natural ingredient in Anti-Aging skincare products. Allantoin is a great natural moisturizer for dry and irritated skin issues, and provides a wonderful organic solution to help combat the skin aging process. Allantoin is Odorless, Non-Irritating, Non-Toxic, and Non-Allergenic, making it ideal for skincare products for all skin types.
