What is Re-Epithelialization?
Over 30 years of pioneering research by Greek chemistry Professor Dr. Papageorgiou revealed that the root extract can revive necrotic skin tissue, for example dead skin from the effect of gangrene. What this means for healthy skin is that histologically it boosts angiogenesis, enhances collagen production, promotes epithelial thickness while removing inflammation and oxidation.
