ATOMCARE™ Nettle Extract

Nettle grows to its full potential of around 1 to 2m during summers and has widely spread bright yellow rhizomes and stolon. The plant has a very fine, thin hair around its stem and leaves, which are painful to touch and sting badly. Stinging Nettle is rich in Vitamin A, B, C, D and K and is a good source of iron, potassium, manganese, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, silica, iodine, silicon, sodium, and sulfur. Dried nettle leaves are used externally and topically for treating acne and blemishes. Dried Nettle leaf extracts are also used as a skin tonic for oily, acne-prone skin. Nettle leaves have astringent properties, which helps in treating skin diseases like eczema, insect bites and chicken pox. Nettle leaves have anti-inflammatory properties and can be used for treating skin burns and reducing the burn scars. It is also believed that Nettle leaves are used to treat hair loss as well as dandruff.
