Madecassoside is extracted from tiger grass (centella asiatica). Centella asiatica is native to Southeast Asia and grows in humid areas such as for example the shore area of lakes or on rice fields. In Ayurvedic medicine it belongs to the most important medicinal plants and is traditionally used for wound healing. A legend tells that wounded Bengal tigers instinctively roll themselves in the leaves to stimulate wound healing; this is the reason for the name tiger grass. Madecassoside has anti-inflammatory properties and normalises the formation of corneal cells, thus redness and the formation of scaly skin is reduced.
Lacto-intensive active complex
By means of a special process fresh organic whey is being fermented. As a base of nearly all BIOTURM products, the fermented organic whey normalises the skin’s flora and the acid mantle by the ingredients contained. Natural lactic acid, essential amino acids, trace elements etc. are well absorbed by the skin and normalise the skin's moisture level.
Under “special ingredients -> lacto-intensive active complex” you will find more information about it.
Helianthus Annuus Hybrid Oil
Sunflower oil is being extracted from the seeds of the sunflower (Helianthus annuus Liné). The sunflower is native to North America and is nowadays mainly cultivated in East and Western Europe as well as in North and South America. BIOTURM uses High Oleic sunflower oil which has a higher content of oleic acid than normal sunflower oil; it has a protective effect, is well tolerated, epithelising and easily absorbed by the skin. Sunflower oil is traditionally used in case of injuries and skin rash.
