Botanical Name: Malva Sylvestris
Wild mallow is a natural skin hydrator because of its emoliency, therefore, as amazing skin softening properties that make it an excellent addition to cosmetic products, especially useful for sensitive skins and areas of the body prone to irritation and inflammation.
Also known as the high mallow, this herb belongs to the same family as the marshmallow where members of this group all produce skin caring mucilages and are highly beneficial for the skin.
Akin to the marshmallow, herbalists have used this plant because of its analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and astringent activity, this plant is a wonderful demulcent or agent that relives inflammation and irritation.
Used also because of its highly emollient action. Emollients are ingredients that maintain the soft, smooth and pliable appearance of the skin, which function by their ability to remain on the skins surface without any residual tackiness or shine or by being absorbed into the stratum corneum, the skins natural barrier to moisture loss, where they act as lubricants, to reduce flaking and ultimately improve the skins appearance.
Extracts of this herb are part of Doctor Maher’s Phytophar™ BW complex, a proprietary balanced mixture used to effectively condition the skin found in our Eutopia Body Care product.
Contains complex polysaccharide (sugar-based) mucilages up to 12%.
Also known as the wild mallow, to distinguish this plant from the marshmallow.
