Bisabolol [(-)-alpha-bisabolol)], also known as Alpha Bisabolol or levomenol, is the primary constituent of German Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla or Matricaria recutita), and is also found naturally in the bark of the Candeia (Vanillosmopsis erythropappa) tree of Brazil, which accounts for most of the world's production of this ingredient. It is a terpene and is classed as an alcohol. Our product is produced from the bark of the Candeia tree which is harvested in a sustainable manner.
a-Bisabolol is a naturally occurring active ingredient that accelerates the healing process of skin and protects it from the effects of daily stress.

It has also been demonstrated in studies to enhance the dermal penetration of other ingredients, making it a truly versatile active ingredient for skin care products, especially those containing other active ingredients and cosmeceuticals. It also has natural anti-bacterial as well as anti-mycotic properties.
