Vauxhall Gardens cultivates the Bocking 14 variety of Comfrey exclusively, because it contains the highest allantoin content known. Allantoin is a natural cell rejuvenator that speeds healing and will reduce any sort of inflammation.
What is Comfrey?
Comfrey is a genus of flowering plants in the borage family, Boraginaceae. Some species and hybrids of comfrey, particularly S. officinale and S. × uplandicum, are commonly used in skincare and herbal medicine.
Comfrey & Skincare
Allantoin is the primary skin-friendly agent in comfrey. It accelerates skin healing, aids in wound regeneration, and possesses anti-inflammatory qualities. We use it liberally in our cosmetic preparations, especially those for sensitive skin.
