An extract from the Marrubium vulgare plant supports repair mechanisms to maintain healthy skin. Human studies show that Marrubium vulgare extract provides both immediate and long-lasting skin support. Topical application of Marrubium vulgare extract improved the appearance of skin moisture and restored a healthy glow within just one hour, as well as reduced the appearance of blackheads and rough-textured skin after four weeks. This results in skin that appears fresher, cleaner, smoother, and younger.
