WHAT BENEFITS DOES COMFREY PLANT OFFER?
Soothes skin: It has the additional functionality of being a calming agent. It soothes and protects the skin by forming complexes with irritant and sensitizing agents, according to Herrmann.
Moisturizes: Acts as an emollient that keeps your skin moisturized and prevents dryness and irritation.
Improves skin-healing: It soothe injured skin and promote wound healing and is often used to treat skin irritation and rashes.
Exfoliates: Comfrey plant is also keratolytic, which means it exfoliates dead skin cells. It helps desquamation, the shedding of the outermost membrane or layer of tissue from the inside out.
Hydrates: Its keratolytic property can increase the water contents of cells, therefore, fighting against the damage of transepidermal water loss (TEWL) in the dermis, which keeps the skin looking plump and youthful. “Think of it as almost the expansion of a sponge when wet, holding the maximum amount of liquid”.
Improves skin dullness: Comfrey plant promotes cell proliferation and supports overall “remodeling.” If the skin is stressed by the usual and customary list of offenders, then the skin is going to try to repair itself as opposed to having more cells turn over. As people get older, then that transit time from the base layer of the epidermis to the top layer takes longer and also the skin is stressed, and those are some of the causes of dull, dry skin, too. This is going to help with that cell proliferation.
Smoothes skin: It helps removing surface dead skin cells (stratum corneum), it also helps keep the skin smooth and soft.
Rejuvenates the cells: Although it’s gentle, it can still be an effective anti-aging ingredient. Comfrey Plant is highly beneficial in facilitating collagen synthesis.
