INCI: Bisabolol

Common name: alpha bisabolol, a - bisabolol 

What is it: Bisabolol is an active ingredient found in chamomile, specifically the German chamomile plant. It comes in the form of a lightweight oil and is an extremely multi-functional ingredient, possessing protective and healing qualities.

Bisabolol skin benefits: Anti-irritant, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and penetration enhancer 

Why we love it: Although the medicinal use of chamomile goes back some thousand years, the isolated compound of bisabolol has only been used since the twentieth century. Since its isolation to a stand alone active ingredient, studies have found that it works to protect the skin from everyday damage and that it can improve the appearance of compromised and damaged skin by helping to restore suppleness. It helps to stimulate the skins natural healing process, fights bacteria and even soothes irritation. We chose to include it in the formula of our Calming Cleansing balm to not only help calm and soothe the skin during this often aggressive step in the skincare ritual, but it was also harnessed to aid the penetration of the other active ingredients in the formula, making the products so much more than just a basic cleansing step in your skincare routine.
