Acmella Oleracea Extract

Acmella Oleracea Extract

Official function according to CosIng : Skin protectant

Acmella Oleracea Extract is an extract of the aerial parts of the oleracea plant. It is widely grown in Brazil and its use is wide - from oral hygiene products for refreshing effects to skincare, where thanks to the substance spilanthol it strengthens the skin and acts against wrinkles as a myorelaxant (relaxing muscles). Flounder extract is therefore popular in anti-aging products, also thanks to its ability to inhibit the enzyme tyrosinase, which prevents the formation of excess pigment.
