Acmella Oleracea is a flowering herb in the Asteraceae family, native to Brazil. It contains spilanthol, an analgesic alkylamide whose numbing and paralyzing effects on muscles made Acmella Oleracea an herb traditionally used to numb the pain associated with toothaches. Applied topically, spilanthol has a similar effect on facial muscles, reducing wrinkles by relaxing the skin. This is why Acmella Oleracea extract is considered a natural alternative to Botox. It can easily penetrate the skin, inhibiting contractions in subcutaneous muscles. Acmella Oleracea reduces muscle tension, reducing facial wrinkles caused by tense or contracted facial muscles, and smoothing the skin. Best results when paired with a daily dose of laughter.
