Camomile

Camomile is a herb prized in skincare formulations for its ability to reduce redness, blemishes and the signs of ageing. It contains high levels of antioxidants, which helps to heal, calm and soothe skin. It blocks signals in the body which are responsible for inflammation, making it a great ingredient for skincare aimed at people with conditions like eczema and rosacea. Due to its soothing properties, it is a widely used ingredient in Elave ranges like Shampoo, Conditioner, Hand Wash, Junior and Baby Intensive Creams and body lotion.

Camomile also contains loads of flavonoid and phytochemicals, which are known to fight against harmful free radicals to reduce DNA damage caused by UV exposure and environmental pollutants and speed up cell regeneration to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and scars.
