Agastache mexicana, a plant belonging to the Lamiaceae family, was widely used in popular Mexican tradition to counteract shock symptoms occurring after a shocking event. This plant reaches up to 1.5 meters in height and has dark pink flowers arranged in groups.
AgascalmTM, the active obtained from Agastache mexicana, helps to counteract the effects of physical and psychological stress on the skin, such as inflammation and redness. It reduces the degradation of LKB protein preventing the release of NF-Kb factor, responsible for the transcription of pro-inflammatory agents, thanks to the content of Acacetina and Tilianina. By limiting this process and thus the chronic expression of cytokines and chemokines (-104%), the skin is visibly less reddened (-10%), vasodilation decreases (-30%) and skin hydration is improved (- 13% TEWL and +6% hydration).
This active is therefore particularly suitable for more sensitive skins and/or subject to rosacea.
AgascalmTM is the result of a a collaboration between Provital and the University of Queretaro in Mexico, as a sustainable project for the promotion of biodiversity and the development of a community of local women. The active is a transparent liquid, soluble in aqueous and the recommended dose ranges from 1 to 3%.
