Alchemilla vulgaris, commonly called lady’s mantle, is an herbaceous perennial plant growing in moun-tainous regions. The name Alchemilla is from Alkemelych (alchemy) and was coined by the medievalalchemists as they believed that the dew drops gathered on the leaves of plant had magical powers.And the name lady’s mantle came from the shape of the leaves that resembled a lady’s cloak inmedieval times. In folk medicine, lady’s mantle tea has centuries of use as a remedy for menstrualcramps, heavy bleeding, and for sore throats. The extract of lady’s mantle has been used to stop bothinternal and external bleeding and to heal wounds.
Similar to other Rosaceae family, pharmacological benefit of A. vulgaris is attributed to its polyphenolsincluding ellagic acid, ellagitannin, and flavonoid glucuronides. Scientific research demonstratesanti-oxidant actions and inhibition of intercellular matrix degrading proteases, both of which are criticalfor anti-aging cosmetic products. Furthermore, enhancing epithelial cell growth and aiding lesionrecovery were demonstrated as a wound healing benefit of its extract.
