Bisabolol (Alpha Bisabolol)
Chamomile extract, also called bisabolol, 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.
It's great for these skin care applications:
- Acne-prone skin
- Inflamed and sensitized skin
- Skin exposed to UV radiation and/or environmental toxins
In addition, bisabolol helps other active ingredients better penetrate the skin, making them more effective.
Bisabolol is a key active ingredient used at maximum concentration in Activist's Precious Oils Active Infusion, $64, our face oil for all skin types.
