The Krameria is an uncommon plant that is famous for its botanical medicine used in the treatment and prevention of a number of conditions. Krameria is also known as Rhatany, the name given to several of its species.
Krameria is found in various parts of America, mostly
in areas that experience tropical climate all year long. Normally, the Krameria
reaches a maximum height of approximately 3ft.
It is a perennial shrub, characterized by its narrow leaves that are
silky green in color. Its flowers are red and have glands that produce a lipid
that is loved by bees. Its roots are shallow so the Krameria plant tends to act
as a root parasite on other nearby plants.
Rhatany was traditionally used as herbal medicine.
This was especially common in the southern part of America and the larger part
of Europe. It is in these two continents that Rhatany was prominently used as a
main source of medication. This was back in the 1820s until the 1920s.
Generally, Rhatany is known for numerous purposes but
its major uses revolve around tannins, the astringent chemicals it produces. Tannins
are mainly extracted from the roots. When the roots are dried and finely
powdered, they can be used as a constituent of tooth powders.
When word spread around on the plant’s medicinal
value, savvy entrepreneurs sold them in the local markets of South America and
with business booming, the plant was moved to International markets.
Additionally, they have been used for the longest time
in Portugal as a coloring agent to their wines. It is used to color their
drinks ruby red.
In some cases, other species of the Krameria plant are
discretely added to the Rhatany preparations to make for better medicine. What
I cannot forget to mention is the high concentration of tannins, found in the
roots of the Krameria plant, that significantly aid in the reduction of
inflammations that appear on the skin of an individual.
Skin inflammation is the first reaction of the immune
system towards injury. It occurs when the white blood cells are trying to fight
off infection from bacteria and other micro-organisms. When Krameria root
extracts are used on inflammation, they work by drawing water from the inflamed
cells, restoring them to their original size.
ACS-AntiCytoStressor (CAS 84775-95-1), also known as
Fraction of Kramiera Triandra Root Extract is a component of the Krameria plant
and has numerous benefits; both cosmetic and medicinal.
Due to the damaging effects of pollution on our skin,
Vevy Europe came up with ACS-AntiCytoStressor to act as a natural
anti-pollutant. All this was in a bid to fight dermatological issues brought
about by pollution.
Independent Chemical, the largest ACS-AntiCytoStressor
supplier, has made use of the above extract to come up with
fine cosmetics to improve the health and appearance of your skin.
The ACS-AntiCytoStressor is known to fight skin
conditions such as acne and eczema. Acne is brought about by a build-up of
excess oil, bacteria and dead skin cells which then clog pores forming pimples.
Eczema, on the other hand, is a skin condition that is characterized by
inflamed, red, scaly and itchy skin. It mostly affects children. There is no
cure for the above conditions, but some lifestyle changes and making use of
skincare care products that contain the ACS-AntiCytoStressor is bound to
alleviate the symptoms and manage the conditions.
As we said earlier, it also contains anti-inflammatory
properties that act quickly to try and bring down swellings on the skin.
One major factor we cannot afford not to mention is its ability to reduce the level of stress hormones produced by the skin when we are under stress. Some psychological pressures such as the constant fear of losing a job, looming deadlines and other environmental issues can naturally trigger the elevation of stress hormones known as Cortisol. This, in turn, causes some unprecedented psychological and physical changes such as dry and itchy scalp that is sometimes sensitive. Using products that are rich in ACS-AntiCytoStressor, will soothe the scalp from itching and redness, as well as significantly reduce stress levels.
