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.
