Great burdock (Arctium lappa), also called slippery burdock, is a native plant whose root, young leaves and stems can be used as a wild vegetable. The root, similar to garden blackroot today, was often eaten as a vegetable in the Middle Ages, but is now only important in Japan, where it is called gobō (牛蒡 or ゴボウ), as well as in Taiwan (牛蒡, Niúbàng) or Korea, where it is called ueong (우엉). Furthermore, ueong tea is also available to drink in Korea. In Great Britain, dandelion and burdock is a traditional non-alcoholic drink that has been around since about 1265.2
EQUIBIOME™ is extracted from the inside of the roots of the famous great burdock (Arctium lappa), through a non-destructive process. It balances reactive skin for perfect harmony. The microbiota, together with the skin, acts as a shield that protects the body from external aggressions. Therefore, the balance of the microbiota is important to avoid skin disorders such as skin barrier disorders or excessive inflammation.
In vitro, EQUIBIOME™ balances the skin microbiota by acting as a peacekeeper for microbial communities and strengthens skin barrier function by controlling inflammatory processes.
Tested in vivo on subjects with very dry and/or sensitive skin, EQUIBIOME™ helps maintain the harmony of reactive skin by soothing the skin and significantly improving skin hydration. (Application concentration:1%).
Let EQUIBIOME™ help you achieve harmony for better and long-lasting skin comfort!
