The concentration of the A. The method of claim 3, wherein the smoke is tobacco smoke. Asteeriscus serves as the key measure in this assay: Ready To Do More? However, the natural defense mechanisms against toxins do not provide full protection.

The cells were incubated in the extract-containing medium overnight, and then the medium was removed and replaced with a culture medium intoxicated with cigarette smoke condensate CSCbeing a model for urban air pollution. According to certain embodiments, the extract, fraction gravveolens or a composition comprising same is to be administered topically to the skin. The method of claim 1, wherein the polar solvent extract or a fraction thereof is essentially devoid of essential oils.

Other objects, features and advantages of the present invention will become clear from the following description and examples. According to certain exemplary embodiments, the extract, fraction thereof or a composition comprising same is administered twice daily.

Asteriscus graveolens Less.

Exposure to trace levels of heavy metals has not been shown to affect skin quality, but accumulation of heavy metals over time has been shown to be associated with higher risks of cancer. The Carbomer is dispersed into the Water According to some embodiments, the extract derived from Asteriscus or a fraction thereof is devoid of 6-oxocyclonerolidol.


Next, the supernatant was collected and filtered through 1. According to other embodiments, the subject is a tobacco smoker or is exposed to tobacco smoke secondary or passive smoker. According to some embodiments, the composition is selected from the group consisting of cosmetic composition, oral care composition, and inhalation composition. Non-limiting examples of excipients in liquids include water, glycerin, propylene glycol, sweet-taste syrup, ethanol, fatty oil, ethylene glycol, polyethylene glycol and sorbitol.

Oxidative stress has also been implicated in a wide variety of degenerative diseases such as atherosclerosis, heart attacks, stroke, chronic inflammatory diseases rheumatoid arthritiscataract, central nervous system disorders Parkinson and Alzheimer’s diseasesage related disorders and cancer.

asteriscys PAHs compose a group of more than different chemicals that are released from burning coal, oil, asteriscuus, trash, tobacco, wood, or other organic substances such as charcoal-broiled meat. It is highly desirable and it would be advantageous to have improved compositions and methods effective in protecting tissues comprising epithelial cells in general and skin in particular from deleterious effects caused by environmental hazards, particularly by pollutants.

According to certain exemplary embodiments, the smoke is tobacco smoke.

All of these exogenous aggravations must challenge the epithelium before entering into the body. According to yet additional embodiments, the epithelial tissue forms part of at least one of pharynx and larynx. Traditional medicine has long appreciated the negative effect of toxin deposit on health and wellbeing and practices detoxification of the body as standard treatment for many diseases and disorders. According to certain embodiments, the inhalation composition is administered by humidifier.

Normal human epidermal keratinocytes NHEK were cultured in culture medium for 24 hours. The extract fraction thereby improved the skin appearance and vitality and reduced premature skin aging.

Oral compositions are intended to be brought into contact with the oral cavity, for example in the form of toothpastes, dental gels, dental creams, mouth washes, sugar-free candies for sucking, oral sprays, dental floss or dental care chewing gums. One skilled in the art can readily devise many variations and modifications of the principles disclosed herein without departing from the scope of the invention.
