It was a mysterious plant with yellow flowers that made disappear completely the pain felt by our anthropologist. This herb, then baptized Acmella oleracea, became a potent analgesic used in Western medicine.
Only recently, however, it was discovered that the plant is not only a great painkiller, but rather also a great anti-wrinkle natural! Yes, just like Botox, the lifting effect is guaranteed.
And so women from all over the world have been purchasing online the extract of this plant (but is also found in herbal medicine) and mixing it with hyaluronic acid, Argan oil and other miraculous substances have been let loose in creating concoctions from wrinkle low price!

By spilantolo, a substance very similar to carisoprodol, a synthetic chemicals used to relax the muscles. Not only: it appears that the plant has a positive effect on the collagen lattice and aid to firm the skin over time.
