AstraForce is a liposomal preparation of Astragalus membranaceus root extract that fights both against aging and has a sebum reducing effect on skin and hair.
The Astragalus plant is one of the most important Chinese medicinal herbs. Its roots have been used for more than 2500 years in Chinese medicine to strengthen qi, the body’s life force. The sebum-reducing effect of AstraForce has been proven for skin and hair. It reduces the activity of enzymes involved in sebum lipid metabolism and reduces sebum secretion on the skin and scalp. AstraForce further combines anti-aging and anti-blemishing properties: it improves firmness, smoothness and hydration while reducing imperfections and inflammation. Thus, it is an effective anti-aging ingredient especially for blemish-prone, oily or combination skin.

- firm and smoothen the skin
- reduce imperfections and prevent breakouts
- balance sebum production on both the skin and the scalp
- ensure a clear and refined skin complexion
- control sebum for oily hair
- A liposomal formulation for optimal bioavailability and efficacy
