Comfrey (symphytum officinale), commonly known as knitbone or bruisewort, has been highly valued since at least Roman times. Modern science confirms that comfrey can influence the course of bone ailments. The allantoin contained in the plant is thought to help replace and thus repair cells in the body through its proliferant properties. Over 10,000 patents reference allantoin. Manufacturers cite several beneficial effects for allantoin as an active ingredient in over-the-counter cosmetics: a moisturizing and keratolytic effect, increasing the water content of the extracellular matrix and enhancing the desquamation of upper layers of dead skin cells, increasing the smoothness of the skin; promoting cell proliferation and wound healing; and a soothing, anti-irritant, and skin protectant effect.
Comfrey is traditionally recommended to treat acne and boils as well as to alleviate psoriasis and assists in healing scars. May also be used in massage to alleviate inflexible and sore joints in people enduring arthritic conditions.
Candelilla wax comes from Euphorbia cerifera, also named the candelilla plant. These are succulents that are harvested in Mexico, especially in the northern states of Chihuahua, Nuevo Leon and Zacatecas. They also occur in the southern states of the USA, Texas, California and Arizona. The wax is deposited on the surface of the plants, and forms a protective coat preventing excessive water loss.
