Objectionable To Injectables?
Exciting news abounds as the extract of Acmella Oleracea emerges as a natural alternative to cosmetic injectables such as Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin. Acmella Oleracea is renowned for its ability to reduce muscle tension, thereby diminishing facial wrinkles caused by tense or contracted facial muscles when applied topically. It acts as a natural muscle relaxant.
According to Dr. Klein, the initial results are promising: "I have observed that Spilanthes extract immediately reduces wrinkle depth, and with continued use over the medium term, in conjunction with other signature JK7® extracts, it leads to further reduction."
Importantly, Dr. Klein clarifies, "Spilanthes does not induce temporary paralysis lasting for weeks, as seen with extreme cosmetic injectables."
Dr. Klein is diligently investigating this natural marvel, conducting both in vitro and in vivo testing to unveil its potential as an antioxidant, anti-aging, and anti-glycation compound. Moreover, he believes it may also support the skin's bacterial biome. These developments signify exciting times in the advancement of natural skincare.
