Due to its broad therapeutic influence, the Chamomile flower (Matricaria recutita L.) has been widely used as a herbal medicine. Alpha-bisabolol and matricin-derived chamazulene, a non-volatile proazulene, are the main constituents of the essential oil. Flavonoid derivatives such as apigenin and apigenin-7-glucoside are also found in flowers. It has been shown in clinical studies that chamomile flower helps to relieve skin irritations, inflammation and itching as well as helps to promote wound healing. The α-bisabolol also has antibacterial and antifungal properties.
Chamomile flower has been used successfully as an oral or topical therapy either alone or in combination with other herbs. Chamomile is very safe for both internal and external use.
Allantoin helps to soothe skin rashes and protect against dry skin and minor irritations. It works by promoting healthy skin and speeding up the growth of new healthy tissue for faster healing process.
