Organic Chamomile water is naturally calming and soothing. It comes from an evergreen perennial species of plant found here in the UK. Usually used as a fragrance or skin- conditioning agent in over the counter skin products.
Anthemis nobilis (Chamomile) flower water is an aqueous solution of the steam distillates obtained from the flowers. Botanical ingredients such as Camomile water have been used for thousands of years for a variety of purposes due to their beneficial properties. The thing that we love about natural products is that there are only benefits and no risks. Chamomile Water has been tested for toxicity and photosensitivity using the advances of science. Yet, there has been no reported risks of the use of Chamomile water.
When using floral waters, it is always best to apply on a clean face, using a drenched cotton pad. If you are treating a sensitive skin type, remember to literally drench your skin rather than rub the cotton pad along your face/skin.
Chamomile water can be used for the following:
- Soothe skin irritation or allergy.
- Calm redness or nappy rash on babies soft bottoms after nappy changing.
- To nourish dry skin.
- To help manage inflammatory diseases such as eczema/dermatitis.
That you test patch your skin in a small area prior to using it. Although extremely rare, it is possible to have an allergy that you never knew existed, if you have never used the product before. The good thing is if your skin doesn’t like it, the reaction will remedy itself from discontinuing its use – like any other 100% natural substance. There are no long term side effects, which can not be said for other “fake” cosmetic products.
If you are using the product around the delicate eye area, cosmetic regulations specify that you dilute it to 10% in a solution or cream. Therefore, you can either add a few drops to a cotton pad that has been moistened with water and then apply. This is due to the strength of the Chamomile Water.
The product is stored somewhere cool, out of direct sunlight (there are no preservatives so we want to ensure that your product is in the best condition when you use it).
If the product comes in to contact with your eyes, please rinse immediately with water.
