Properties of Chamomile
Chamomile flower extract has anti-inflammatory and soothing properties for the skin thanks to its content of the terpenoids chamazulene and bisabolol. Thanks to its ability to inhibit the cyclooxygenase enzyme, it helps relieve itching and redness. It also has antioxidant activity due to the presence of matricin, apigenin, and luteolin.
