Actives & Ingredients

bisabolol (alpha) in skincare

Bisabolol, also called alpha bisabolol or levomenol, is a botanically-derived active ingredient that can be extracted from German Chamomile or the bark of the Brazillian Candeia tree.

Bisabolol has many benefits for stressed skin types, especially acne-prone. It has powerful anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also antibacterial, so it helps prevent acne bacteria from proliferating, and anti-fungal.

In addition, bisabolol helps other active ingredients better penetrate the skin, making them more effective.
