Defensil® combines herbal active ingredients, all of which are characterized by their skin-soothing properties.

Rich in phytosterols (beta-sitosterol), the oily extract of balloon vine - a tropical climbing plant - weakens the course of inflammatory and allergic reactions, earning it a reputation as a herbal alternative to hydrocortisone.

 

A whole complex of bioactive, skin barrier-strengthening components comes from the unsaponifiable of sunflower oil. In addition to phytosterols and squalene, this complex also contains tocopherol, in particular alpha-tocopherol, which as an antioxidant and radical scavenger reduces inflammatory processes and is therefore often used in anti-aging formulations.

The whole is complemented by an oil pressed from the seeds of the plantain-leaved viper's bugloss: echium oil. No other oil provides more stearidonic acid than echium oil. Stearidonic acid is an important precursor of the anti-inflammatory eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and series-3 prostaglandins. In addition, echium oil is rich in gamma-linolenic acid, an essential fatty acid that is important for building or regenerating the skin barrier. The interaction of these active plant ingredients thus results in a nourishing oil that protects the skin from overreactions, provides effective skin soothing, and effectively regenerates the skin barrier.
