Natural anti-irritant and skin protector. Provides structural support and aids replication of skin cells.
Allantoin is a natural chemical compound. Extracted from the root of the Comfrey plant, Allantoin has rich botanical properties which encourage a natural regeneration process when applied topically to the skin.
It increases the water content of the extracellular matrix of skin. The formation of this connective tissue, composed of collagen and elastin and other proteins, is essential to the regulation of the healing process of the skin. Allantoin encourages these skin cells to rapidly multiply and enables replication of normal, healthy cells. As a result, it is highly effective in the healing of wounds, burns, and scars. It also helps to speed healing of bruises.
This plant is odorless, non-toxic, and non-allergenic in both its natural derivatives and chemically synthesized forms of the compound. It is a soothing, anti-irritant, skin protectant which makes it safe for sensitive skin. Exfoliating (keratolytic) properties help to remove dead skin cells to soften and smooth skin at the surface.
In Bellatorra skincare Allantoin is used in creams, serums, and toners to support the healing of skin damaged by free radicals, protect skin from future damage and aid rejuvenation of the skin.
