TEHRAN (IFP) -- A group of Iranian researchers have used plant extracts to produce a cream for removing skin cracks and scars.
Cracks or lines of skin usually appear on the skin due to skin lifting, thinning, etc. The colours of these lines and their shape are different from natural skin. You may feel itching or burning while touching the skin cracks.
These cracks usually occur during pregnancy or after delivery or with the increase of body weight. Skin cracks are not dangerous and often disappear over time based on age and type of skin care.
To eliminate these cracks, researchers at a knowledge-based company have produced a cream that boosts the production of collagen and fibroblasts and antagonistic effects against corticoids in the skin, and thus prevents skin cracks.
The ingredients of this cream are extracts of "Asiatic pennywort”, vitamin E and collagen. This medicine is also used to remove scars.
The Asiatica Centella has traditionally been used thousands of years ago in East Asia, India, China, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and South Africa.
Historically, the plant has been used to treat diseases such as hepatitis, stomach ulcers, brain problems, epilepsy, diarrhea, fever, and asthma.
