Keeps skin soothed and calm

The roots and leaves of the marshmallow plant were traditionally used to soothe irritated or sore skin - it's why we use it in our products today.
The leaves and stem of the marshmallow plant are covered in downy hairs, and the whole plant contains lubricating mucilage, particularly concentrated in the roots. Its botanical name derives from the Greek word "althein," which means "to heal."
