Found in: Superlative Body Balm
Key benefits: Anti-inflammatory. Analgesic. Healing.
Derived from: Comfrey leaves
Comfrey extract is something of a naturopathic cure-all, used to treat conditions ranging from digestive issues to broken bones to certain types of cancer. Applied topically, it can help relieve pain, soothe irritation and accelerate bruise and wound repair (thanks to its constituent allantoin, which stimulates the growth of new skin cells). An anti-inflammatory, it’s particularly effective in relieving discomfort associated with back pain, osteoarthritis and sprains.
