Symrise Research Confirms Anti-Irritant Plant Extracts

December 2, 2005

The research team at Symrise has succeeded in proving the anti-irritant efficacy of several plant extracts via screening on human skin cells. The plants with the greatest potential were investigated to determine their ability to suppress the production of interleukin-1 alpha and prostaglandin E2.
Based on these findings, Symrise recently launched two state-of-the-art lines of botanical extracts: TCM Extrapone, which draws upon traditional Chinese medicine, and Ayurveda Extrapone, inspired by traditional treatments from India.
Symrise’s extensive efficacy tests showed that plants with powerful anti-irritant properties included witch hazel, as well as Lonicera japonica (Extrapone honeysuckle flower), Pueraria lobata (Extrapone pueraria root), Sophora japonica (Extrapone sophora flower) and Cyperus rotundus (Extrapone nutgrass root).
