Medicosmetics Anti-Age care include the ingredients of natural origin, specially selected for its unique cosmetics properties.

Sideritis scardica (Griseb), commonly known as Mursala, Mountain or Pirin Tea is a perennial herbaceous plant that grows wild on rocky places and at an altitude of 1,000 m. and above, on Pirin and Rhodope Mountains.

Scientists have suggested that the popular pronouncement of Mursala Tea as panacea may have some basis in fact.

In Greece it is known since antiquity and is first mentioned by Theophrastus (372-287 BC) and Dioscorides (10 AD). The scientific name Sideritis comes from the Greek word “sidiros” meaning iron and was given to the plant because of its ability to heal the wounds caused by iron objects. According to others, it was named Sideritis because it is a natural source of iron, as drinks made of the plant contain iron. A third view holds that the name is due to the shape of the teeth of the plants calyx, that resemble spearheads.

In cosmetics, sideritis is only recently being exploited as a rich source of antioxidants, which help face creams claim better performance in anti-aging (due to fighting free radicals more effectively) and shampoos/hair preparations for colored and natural hair that better perform against the decolourising and damage due to daily exposure to UV radiation.
