Marshmallow Root has been used medicinally for skin complaints, as it is believed to help soothe irritation, calm inflammation and – thanks to antioxidant properties – could help repair sun-damaged skin and slow down signs of ageing.
Marshmallow Root Powder is often included in skincare remedies because it has a reputation for helping to soothe and calm irritation, such as eczema or dermatitis.
Experts believe that the herb contains substances that can help stimulate cells in the body that show anti-inflammatory behaviour. In addition, marshmallow root has antibacterial properties that could help to speed up wound healing and minimise signs of inflammation when it’s applied topically.
Marshmallow root may also be able to help slow the ageing process, as it contains powerful anti-oxidants which help to repair damage to the skin.
The common mallow plant (botanical name Malva Sylvestris) is sometimes confused with althaea Officinalis but they are in fact different species that belong to the same plant family and offer different health benefits.
