Chamomile ( Matricaria recutita)

Bisabolol is the principal constituent of Chamomile. The Alpha-Bisabolol is a natural occurring active plant ingredient which has been used in traditional medicine in Europe for hundreds of years.

It is a highly concentrated organic extract of Chamomile flowers who’s action on the skin is well documented. The Natural Alpha-Bisabolol is a bright yellow oil that is strongly aromatic, with a distinct scent of apples. It is used in our formulas for its protection of skin against daily stresses and aggressors.

This herb is one of the best known of the garden herbs and is widely cultivated in Europe. Its value as a medicinal herb has been recognised for many hundreds of years and its use has even been recorded in ancient Egyptian manuscripts being dedicated to their sun god and valued most highly for its healing, sedative and relaxing properties.

We use this extract for its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and healing effect. The volatile oils contain active ingredients that include flavonoids and quercetin, both potent anti-inflammatories, soothing red, sensitive and easily irritated skin.

Bisabolol is a key ingredient in our ‘Simplicity Calming Complex’ and is found in all of our lotion cleansers, face and hand and body moisturisers.
