Symphytum officinale is a perennial plants native to Europe and Asia.
This plant has a long history of cultivation as a medicinal plant.
In the middle ages, it was a famous remedy wounds, scratches and other skin irritations.

Research shows that its allantoin, 5-ureide-hydantoin, possesses a wound healing effect in clinical trials.

Comfrey leaf extracts have shown to effectively induce healing activity which was confirmed by an increase in collagen deposition
and a reduction in cellular inflammatory infiltrate, while another study demonstrated anti-irritant activity at a cellular level.
