Ingredient spotlight: Chamomile the flower of kings
A lot of us associate chamomile with being calming and soothing, which is completely correct, but it’s often an overlooked ingredient in skincare and has many wonderful and amazing properties to boast. Benefits of chamomile can help with inflammation, aches and pains, insomnia, anxiety and stress, and is perfect for sensitive skin, which is why we have it in our skincare! Containing azulene, which is an anti-inflammatory, its great to use in winter when skin can become even more sensitive and prone to irritation and works by calming the outer layers of the skin when it becomes red and inflamed by the harsh cold and dry heat caused by heating and radiators.
Chamomile has been used and valued for over four thousand years, going back to ancient Egyptian times, where it was considered sacred and was dedicated to the sun-god, Ra. Did you know that it was also used to help preserve and was woven into a garland that decorated the mummy of the Pharaoh Tutankhamen? It has become easily available to us now, but should still be seen for the wonderful healing gift that it can be. Our cactus fruit eye serum contains chamomile which is perfect for soothing the delicate skin around your eyes and to soothe any irritation. Make sure you go and grab yours today!
