NAB ® Biotechnological Actives

NAB® Butterbur Extract is a naturally based active derived from the leaves and roots of the Butterbur herb. It has been used as an anti-inflammatory, a smooth muscle relaxant (anti-spasmodic) and pain reliever (analgesic). This product is effective at helping to relieve discomfort in sensitive skin associated with irritation and rosacea. NAB® Rhodiola Extract is an adaptogenic thermal stress protectant for skin and hair that is derived from the Rhodiola Rosea. R. Rosea, a robust plant that thrives in harsh conditions (such as cold, wind, drought, reduced oxygen and intense radiation exposure). This active, aqueous glycolic extract will provide antioxidant protection from environmental damage to help keep skin in peak condition, ward off the visible signs of aging as well as allow the skin to easily adapt to internal and external stressors.
