Chamomile Skincare Benefits

Chamomile Skincare Benefits
Chamomile has a long history in Ayurvedic treatment to calm and relax the body.⠀

In addition, chamomile also has many skin other benefits including anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and mild antibacterial and antifungal properties.⠀

When used topically, it has the ability to reduce redness and soothe the skin, making it appealing for those with eczema and sensitive skin. ⠀

According to the Molecular Medicine Reports, chamomile also contains a compound called Apigenin which have been shown to improve skin barrier function. ⠀

What does this mean? ⠀

Your skin barrier is the outmost layer of the skin designed to keep out irritants, therefore prevents skin irritation or skin sensitivity.⠀

When your skin barrier is weakened, environmental pollutants can make their way in, causing irritation, sensitivity and redness. ⠀

We have taken advantage of the properties in chamomile and coupled it with Prebiotics. Prebiotics act as a food source for the healthy bacteria that is naturally occurring on your skin. ⠀

Their actions work in synergy to really strengthen the skin barrier, leaving your skin healthy and happy. ⠀

If you have any Qs or comments, drop us a line! ⠀
