There are many therapeutic herbs and plants in this world which have amazing benefits butthey have never been discovered. One of such plants is the Houttuynia Cordata, which is mostly popular in Asia especially Korea, Vietnam, China, Japan and Manipur. One of the incredible benefits of the plant is its anti-bacterial properties which makes it excellent in treating acne and atopic skin while also providing the skin with a sterilizing effect to detoxify harmful bacteria and reduce inflammation. Apart from that, the plant is also effective for regeneration to heal wounds and fight bacteria that causes inflammation. Last but not least, the Houttuynia Cordata is also rich in minerals that function to maintain healthier, cleaner capillary vessels for cleaner skin.
Tapping into the benefits of the Houttuynia Cordata plant, Mamonde formulates its Pore Clean line, a pore solution line that thoroughly cleanses thick dead skin cells and unwanted sebum while working on getting rid of stubborn blackheads for tighter pores.
