The benefits of Ashitaba extract against skin disorders



Skin conditions such as warts and corns aren’t just cosmetic concerns; they also impact our mobility and quality of life. Growing interest in more natural solutions has led us to explore the beneficial properties of Ashitaba extract. This medicinal plant, native to Japan, holds significant potential thanks to its unique compounds. In this article, we’ll detail how Ashitaba extract could represent a natural solution for people suffering from warts and corns on the feet.

The search for natural alternatives to combat skin discomfort is booming. Ashitaba extract is renowned for its medicinal properties, particularly in Japan, where it is consumed for its health benefits. Here, we examine the impact of this extract on specific conditions such as warts and corns, drawing on preliminary studies and testimonials to better understand its potential.

Exploring natural solutions for the treatment of skin conditions is crucial at a time when we are seeking to reduce dependence on synthetic chemicals and drugs. Ashitaba attracts attention for its active compounds and its anti-inflammatory and anti-infectious effects. This article aims to provide an in-depth understanding of Ashitaba and explore its ability to improve skin health naturally.

Warts and corns: A brief introduction

Plantar warts and corns are common skin problems with distinct origins and treatments, but they share a common mechanism of formation linked to pressure and friction. Warts, in particular, are induced by a viral infection (human papillomavirus), and occur mainly on the soles of the feet. Corns, on the other hand, are the result of an accumulation of dead skin due to continuous pressure, inducing pain and discomfort.

Although benign, these skin conditions can have a major impact on people’s daily lives, affecting their mobility and comfort. Prolonged use of unsuitable footwear, as well as inadequate hygiene and foot care, can aggravate these conditions. The growing interest in natural alternatives can be explained by the potential limitations and side effects of conventional treatments.

Distinguishing between warts and corns is fundamental to choosing the right treatment. While warts often require interventions to eliminate the virus responsible, corns can be treated by pressure-reducing methods and improving friction conditions. In this context, the effectiveness of natural solutions such as Ashitaba extract deserves to be examined from a scientific and practical angle.

The role of Ashitaba extract for the skin

Ashitaba is famous for its medicinal and nutritional properties. Among its key components, chalcones, polyphenolic compounds, have demonstrated anti-inflammatory and anti-infectious effects. These properties could play a crucial role in the fight against skin infections such as warts, and could help reduce the accumulation of dead skin responsible for the formation of corns.

Ashitaba’s virtues are not limited to its direct impact on the skin. It also promotes cell regeneration and strengthens the immune system, which can contribute to better defense against various skin conditions. Incorporating Ashitaba extract into skin care could therefore offer multi-faceted benefits beyond the treatment of warts and corns.

Scientific research, although in its infancy, is providing promising indications of Ashitaba’s potential. Preliminary studies have revealed its efficacy in inhibiting the growth of certain bacteria and modulating inflammatory responses. These theoretical findings support the idea that Ashitaba extract could prove an effective natural complement to specialized treatments for skin conditions.


Ashitaba extract stands out as a promising skin care ingredient, offering a new natural avenue for individuals seeking to treat conditions such as warts and corns. As the scientific community continues to explore the potential of this plant, incorporating Ashitaba extract into skin care routines may represent an interesting complementary solution. Nevertheless, it is essential to consult a healthcare professional before introducing any new elements into your care routine. Vernixa continues its commitment to promoting natural, science-backed skincare solutions for your skin’s well-being.

I use Hydra Lavant daily to cleanse my four-year-old daughter: a real sensation of care on application, a delicate foam, a product that rinses off easily and leaves a perceptible protective film. Even after drying, the skin is supple and emollient. My daughter no longer feels any tightness, even in this winter season. As for me, I use it to remove my make-up in the shower, it's super gentle on the face and removes make-up residue without aggression. At last, a cleanser in which every ingredient has added value, and which truly respects fragile skin!
