Spilanthes Acmella, popularly known as the toothache plant, is famous for its history of relieving pain. This beautiful plant is defined by its gold and red colored flowers and it is commonly used in salad preparations as well as skin care products. It has also been touted to assist in relieving the pain caused by different types of oral diseases. The plant has been traditionally used in Brazil as a common cure for toothaches because of its analgesic and anesthetic properties.
Research surrounding the Spilanthes Acmella is in its preliminary stage at best, but the pain relieving properties have been found to be fairly potent when applied to the skin through topical formulations. That being said, Spilanthes Acmella has underperformed in front of reference drugs used for similar purposes.
Another property that makes the Spilanthes Acmella very popular in the world of skin care is that it is an aphrodisiac, a substance that improves a person’s sex life and sexual desires. Additionally, Spilanthes Acmella has also shown to increase the FSH and LH testosterone boosters.
As we frown, speak or laugh, our skin gets subjected to thousands of micro-contractions on a daily basis. Over a period of time, these contractions lead to the creation of fine lines on the face. These fine lines slowly become more visible as they transform into wrinkles. Spilanthes Acmella acts as a myorelaxant agent that slows down the micro-contractions to prevent or reduce the formation of facial expression lines.
That’s not the end of the line when it comes to the skin benefits offered by Spilanthes Acmella. As the body ages, the fibroblasts diminish and the extracellular matrix architecture gets modified. These changes create a disorganization in your collagen structure, which ultimately leads to an increase in wrinkles and a loss of firmness in the skin. By adding Spilanthes Acmella into your skin care regimen, you can help to keep the skin looking firmer and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
OROGOLD Cosmetics came across a study that was published in the Molecular Sciences Journal. This study showed that Spilanthes Acmella extract presents certain antioxidant activities to the skin, which give it progressive myorelaxant and fast-working abilities, even at lower concentrations.
ORO GOLD came across another study which showed that a formulation that contained 0.25% of Spilanthes Acmella stimulated the contractile force of fibroblasts, which in turn tightened the dermis and firmed up the skin. The same study also tested a 2% formulation on volunteers, which showed Botox-like action after 28 days of treatment. This study was published in the SÖFW Journal.
Some studies have also suggested that Spilanthes Acmella extract has the ability to stimulate the production of collagen and enhance the penetration of other ingredients used in the product. Adding Spilanthes Acmella extracts into your skin care regimen could really go a long way in relieving facial tension and reducing the presence of wrinkles and facial expression lines, thereby leaving you with younger and smoother looking skin.
Better yet, Spilanthes Acmella doesn’t pose any health risks because it is completely natural.
