Chamomilla Recutita Extract
Chamomilla recutita flower extract is made from the flowers of the Chamomilla recutita plant, or also known as German chamomile. As that name suggests, Chamomilla recutita is a part of the larger Chamomile family.
German chamomile (Chamomilla Recutita) extract can be more effective than Roman chamomile in skincare products based on its anti-inflammatory properties. Largely for this reason, it’s more common in skin care products than other chamomile types.
The Chamomilla recutita plant has a wide variety of health benefits, and is often used in herbal infusions and folk medicine. The concentrated extract of the Chamomilla recutita flower is also used in skincare.
