Ledum Palustre

Ledum Palustre


Its name is of botanical origin and was inspired by Ledum Palustre, a small shrub part of the Ericaceae family, common throughout the entire Northern Hemisphere and well known in the phytotherapeutic and homeopathic traditions for its repellent action against insects and mosquitoes in particular.

The brand name “Ledum” by Prodeco Pharma comes from the name of this precious, useful plant and characterizes the whole line of natural products that have the mother tincture of Ledum palustre as their essential ingredient.

Mother tincture obtained from Ledum leaves is rich in numerous chemically active ingredients, among which flavonoids (quercetin), coumarin, mono and sesquiterpenes aliphatic alcohol and a precious essential oil. These natural molecules are responsible for the intense, penetrating scent, pleasant to man but abhorred by insects. Thanks to its unique composition, when applied to the skin the mother tincture makes it unappealing for mosquitoes and other insects. Moreover, Ledum palustre also has a soothing and anti-inflammatory effect and can therefore provide rapid relief from the typical, annoying symptoms caused by insect bites.

Ledum mother tincture, combined with carefully selected essential oils, can bring to life extraordinary formulations that offer total, indispensable protection during evenings outdoors. It is also included in formulations developed to relieve itching, ideal for offering a sense of well-being to the skin.

Ledum was the first brand registered by Prodeco Pharma in 1990.
