Superstar Ingredients: Chamomile
The chamomile plant has been used since ancient times for its anti-inflammatory properties, and has long been used in teas, salves, vapors, washes, and compresses. Known for its calming effects on the skin, it is the perfect ingredient for sensitive, irritated or inflamed skin.
That’s why we use chamomile across our range of baby products. Chamomile is the star ingredient of our Baby Line, soothing, healing and smelling divine. We also use it in our sensitive skin Atorpel Line.
Here are five amazing effects of chamomile.
