This plant has emollient and soothing properties and reduces redness. Thanks to its high content of mucilage, it also performs potent moisturizing and anti- inflammatory actions. In fact, mucilage is able to absorb a significant amount of water, generating fluid gels which, when applied to the skin surface, form a thin, elastic, transparent film with isoepidermal pH, capable of transferring water to the stratum corneum (outer layer of the skin), giving the skin elasticity and hydration. The presence of this plant also makes this cream useful in the case of redness from sun exposure.
