arnica comes from the Greek
arnakis meaning 'lamb's coat' and refers to the felt-like sepals covered in soft hairs that surround the flower. A native plant on the European continent and in Siberia, Arnica has been used extensively in European folk medicine since the 1500s and has been listed in the European Pharmacopoeia as a treatment for swelling and skin bruises. It is often the first remedy used for injuries such as sprains and bruises.
Some of the chemical constituents of Arnica that contribute to its vulnerary and anti-inflammatory properties include sesquiterpene lactones, flavonoids, thymol, mucilage and arnicin. As a result of its vulnerary (increase wound healing) and anti-inflammatory properties, Arnica has been used topically for a wide range of conditions, including muscles aches, superficial phlebitis, rheumatic pain, inflammation from insect bites and swelling due to fractures.
Arnica Extract has been useful in skin care formulations that are intended to reduce epidermal inflammation and irritation, along with contusions, sun burns and products designated for alleviating other irritations such as insect bites. In-vivo analysis has substantiated both anti-irritancy and anti-inflammatory claims of Arnica Extract. Arnica Extract also exhibits good skin penetration, and effectively reduces both epidermal irritation and redness. Arnica Flower Extract can be used in hand creams and lotions that are intended to protect the hands by preventing and reducing skin irritation. The product may also be useful in cosmeceuticals that are intended to reduce the appearance of scars, contusions, and other minor skin irritations including both eczema and insect bites.
