Symrise research confirms anti-irritant plant extracts.

* 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 tradition al Chinese medicine, and Ayurveda Extrapone, inspired by traditional treatments from India.

Symrise's extensive efficacy tests showed that plants with powerful antiirritant 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).
