DEFENSIL®-SOFT, 2017 Gold Medal BSB Innovation winner for most Innovative Natural Product, is a neurobalm for sensitive skin. The active ingredient is based on the edible mushroom Albatrellus ovinus, also called the Northern truffle. The pain receptor TRPV1, which is expressed in the epidermis’ sensory neurons and keratinocytes, regulates the skin’s comfort zone. Elevated levels of TRPV1 may lead to increased skin sensitivity and unpleasant sensations caused by e.g. sunburn or chemical peelings. DEFENSIL®-SOFT blocks the skin's pain receptor TRPV1 and upgrades the skin’s comfort zone. Redness, stinging and burning are noticeably reduced.
