Helichrysum is considered to be one of the most potent antioxidants that exist, possessing a plethora of active substances: polyphenols including flavonoids, monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes. Acting together, they ensure a firm, soft structure of the skin and bring out its natural, healthy glow.

Speaking of irritants and pollutants, they put a strain on everyone’s skin hence from time to time even in the healthiest individuals some inflammation happen as a response. Helichrysum, thanks to its richness in terpenoids, calms down and soothes the skin, minimizing any redness and discomfort.

Whether your complexion is dry or oily, proper moisturizing balances the skin’s natural sebum production and adjusts it to the individual in the healthiest way.
