In traditional medicine, allantoin-sulfomucopolysaccharide gel (extracted from the roots and leaves of the comfrey plant) is used to help skin heal faster. In natural skin care products, it’s also chosen for its ability to soothe irritated skin, moisturize and stimulate new cell growth. Even at very low concentrations, the anti-irritating properties of this botanical ingredient have proven to stimulate cell renewal, which is the key to younger looking skin.

The gel is used to treat skin tissue following wounds and surgical incisions, and has shown to reduce the appearance of scarring.
