RESEARCH ON INGREDIENTS
Castor oil is extracted by pressing the seeds of the castor plant Ricinus communis, a native to the tropical areas of Africa and India. Castor oil is well-known for its oil-rich castor beans and has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and moisturizing properties. Castor oil has a low comedogenic score, which means it is unlikely to clog pores in the skin, making it appropriate for use on even the most sensitive skin with a low risk ofndeveloping ingrown hairs.
Chamomile Flower Extract from the Chamomilla Recutita is known for its anti-inflammatory and skin
soothing properties. It also has rejuvenating properties on skin cells, as it enhances the appearance of dehydrated or damaged skin by reducing dry flaking and restoring suppleness to the skin. The plant’s flowers are rich in flavonoids (namely apigenin, quercetin, patuletin and luteolin), which contribute to the ingredient’s anti-inflammatory, anti-erythema (reddening of the skin) and nti-pruritic (itchiness) properties that all help improve the speed at which damaged skin heals.

germicidal, fungicidal and anti-viral attributes. It is also safe and gentle on skin
, consisting of flavonoids, such as naringen, ascorbic acid, tocopherols and
citric acid and has a mild citrus aroma.
