What is chamomile?

Chamomile is an aromatic flower in the daisy family. For millenia, it has been used in medical and beauty treatments. Particularly valued for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and astringent properties, chamomile has a calming effect on the mind and body and has no known side effects.

Benefits of chamomile

1. Soothes skin irritations

Chamomile is rich in flavonoids, which can calm the skin and reduce irritation. It contains chamazulene, whose anti-inflammatory properties can alleviate flare-ups caused by rosacea, eczema or skin allergies.

2. Minimises visible signs of aging

Chamomile is rich in antioxidants, which play an essential role in defending against free radicals and other daily environmental aggressors. The polyphenols and phytochemicals present in chamomile can encourage cell regeneration, thus improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

3. Combats breakouts

Chamomile has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties to significantly improve skin inflammation caused by acne bacteria. Additionally, chamomile can help to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation.

Is chamomile suitable for my skin type?

Chamomile is suitable for all skin types. It can soothe irritation and redness, making it particularly beneficial for sensitive skin.

Can chamomile be used with other products?

Chamomile works well in combination with other ingredients to address various skin conditions. When paired with hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and ceramides, it can help boost skin hydration and strengthen skin’s barrier function. Chamomile can be combined with stronger actives, such as chemical exfoliants and retinol, to combat breakouts and minimise the visible signs of aging.

How often should I use chamomile?

Chamomile can be used twice a day or as needed.
