Hi,

This is from a make-up remover bottle. What is the underlined part mean?

Hamamelis Virginiana, with its soothing and calming properties, helps to protect the onset of irritation.

Thanks.
 
  • The verb "protect" seems to be wrongly used here. One reads of it helping to relieve / alleviate / reduce irritation, but "protect the onset of" has no sense to me.
    "Prevent / Delay the onset of irritation" would make sense, but I do not know whether that is true of Hamamelis Virginiana.
