Aside from being emotionally taxing, it’s been widely reported that stress can speed up the physical aging process. When it comes to your skin, this isn’t exactly the most encouraging of news. That’s to say, your morning commute may not just leave you feeling frazzled: It can leave you looking haggard, too.
Well, in the world of skincare, there’s now a little-known ingredient that can reduce the physical response to stress: Agascalm. Derived from the Agastache Mexicana flowering plant, Agascalm’s name correctly alludes to its soothing and healing properties. It works specifically to target stress-induced skin problems, such as redness, by inhibiting the release of cytokines (proteins) involved with our skin’s inflammatory response. What’s more, Agascalm also works to improve vascular tonicity, improve water retention, enhance radiance, and even out skin tone. Basically, it’s a godsend of an ingredient for anyone who leads a busy, full, and unpredictable life.
In this sense, Agascalm isn’t just a balm to treat existing flare-ups; it’s a preventative agent for the unforeseen stressful situation: From a fire drill at work to a sick baby keeping you awake all night. (Because when those things happen, you don’t always have time to reach for your moisturizer!) Paired with eXO’s Zen3 exosome formula and other Next-gen natural ingredients like kelp, kombu, and sea lettuce, Agascalm works to ensure skin stays its calmest and healthiest self.
We consider it to be like your skin’s therapist: On call anytime and ready to talk you out of your latest freak out.
