One of the world's oldest medicines known to man is chamomile and today we will be talking about the incredible effects it can have on the body, internally as well as externally.
Chamomile is a common ingredient found in products that address skin conditions such as:
- soreness and itchiness
Let's not forget to mention its soothing touch promotes positive and relaxed feelings, which in turn helps to enhance physical comfort.
Chamomile as an extract is valued for its cleansing and moisturizing properties. Often added to products to soften and brighten the skin as well as hair. This herb also helps balance oily skin and manage the appearance of blemishes and acne. Last but not least, it's also incredibly beneficial in reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and scares due to rich concentration of phytochemicals and polyphenols.
Chamomile can be used in many forms such as:
- body butters
- bath blends
- facial toners
- hair mists
Every medicinal plant has bioactive constituents that make them special. Chamomile is packed with many constituents that work in different ways, a few of them are: alpha bisabolol, alpha bisabolol oxides A&B and matricin which is usually converted into chamazulene. These special constituents are some of the things that give chamomile its incredible anti-inflammatory properties which makes it great for reducing redness and irritation, giving your skin the soothing effect it deserves!
Chamomile is also a mild astringent. What's an astringent you may ask? Astringents are a substance that draws water out of tissues, causing them to shrink. This is what causes the tightening feeling when using our amazing toner! They also remove oils and can be antibacterial. So it's easy to see why chamomile is included in Tone, our tightening Toner.
On the topic of removing oils and being an antibacterial, chamomile is also in our Cleanse for that exact reason!
Chamomile, along with our other various super herbs, come to the rescue with their antibacterial properties when you're faced with an active acne breakout by reducing bacteria and cleansing the skin. To top it all off, chamomile will help prevent future breakouts along with treating the current ones!
