Beauty Benefits of Calming Chamomile

Renowned for its soothing and calming properties, Chamomile is one of the most gentle ingredients used in beauty products with particular benefits for dry, sensitive and allergic skin. A powerful anti-inflammatory, Chamomile helps soften, heal and balance skin, benefits the hair, has a pretty floral fragrance and even helps us get a full night’s beauty sleep! 
It’s no wonder that so many of our favourite products contain its goodness!  Here are a few that we’ve been loving lately (just click on any image or product name for further info)…
Nvey Eco High Definition Cake Eyeliner

Widely used by by the Ancient Egyptians, Chamomile is cultivated in Europe for its medicinal benefits, where its precious essential oil is extracted from the plant’s leaves and flowers through steam-distillation.  We’re also rather partial to a cup of Chamomile tea at the end of a hectic day at CutECOsmetics HQ! 

Have you tried any products containing Chamomile?

NB Some medical practices advise against using Chamomile based products during pregnancy
